Description: The Kingfisher Seafood, Pasta & Steakhouse is a casual Old World Mediterranean décor waterfront restaurant located center-island in beautiful Shelter Cove Harbour. We have beautiful water views where dolphins and pelicans frequent. Large hand-painted murals of Mediterranean scenes adorn the walls. The spacious rooms have large dark-stained wood beams and Tuscan patterned carpet. We have all-you-can-eat pasta specials for under $10 for the hardy appetite (choice of 3 pastas and 6 sauces). We also have nightly selections for fresh seafood often including Grouper, Sea Bass, Mahi-Mahi, Salmon, Covina, Cobia plus more. These are prepared differently based on what you like. For the meat lovers we have Prime Rib, Steaks, and BBQ Ribs. Happy Hour in our lounge is the happiest on the Island with $2.50 Kingfisher drafts, $3 wine and $4 well drinks -- from 5-8 daily. Plus we have the best raw oysters and peel-&-eat shrimp at terrific prices. (See menu button above) Cap-off the evening with Las Vegas quality Comedy in the upstairs showroom. Free and convenient close private parking lot. Serving dinner from 5pm to 9pm. GPS? Enter 18 Harbourside Ln,HH, SC.

Very nice decor, and the staff was helpful. The food quality was fair for the price. We enjoyed our meal, but feel in some ways like they are trying to be a little bit more or higher end than a family restaurant.

We offer a wide range of dinner menu items from $11.99 to $26 (some Fresh Catch specials). Kids meals are $4.99. Our Happy Hour prices are among the best on the Island. We are kid friendly. We do price comparisons with similar restaurants where we have found we are very competitive. Not sure who this person is comparing us to.... More

6:30 on a Friday night, not more than a dozen tables were occupied and yet the service was slow and inattentive. My food came before my wine. The side salad was iceberg lettuce with one cucumber slice and a few slices of red onion. The seafood was good but certainly not good enough to make up for the lack of... More

Visited on December 6, 2014. My group was told it would be a 15 minute wait. No problem. Went to lounge to wait. 25 minutes later I went to the girl at front desk and asked how much longer and she said about 25 more minutes. I looked into dinning room for first time and less than half the tables... More

I spoke to the manager on duty this night. She was unaware of this specific situation. She did recall we had many reservations for large groups who were going to the Arts Center production. Yes, they all came in about the same time to eat before the show. We do recommend reservations. First, we do staff based on our expected... More

Thanksgiving meal is a good price. But it's nothing to rave about. It's convenient to our condo which is a plus for us.

With a plethora of restaurants from which to choose on HHI, this place got our vote due to its location and menu. What a great choice it turned out to be. Without doubt, the Kingfisher provided the best appetizer we have ever had, a crab dip which is to die for. Wonderful taste and texture, with tri color tortilla chips,... More

Stopped in tonight for happy hour drinks and appetizers. Both were excellent and the bartender/ waitress Tina was helpful and friendly. Provided excellent advice on the appetizers and outstanding service. Atmosphere was relaxing and other patrons enjoyable , would definitely return.
