We have been to Michael Anthony's a few times in our visits to Hilton Head Island but we have never eaten at the bar. We called late to get a table and were told there were 4 seats available at the bar so we went. What a blast The bartender Sandy made us feel as if we were regulars, and... read more

I surprised my wife and we went to a different restaurant than we normally go to for a change. I knew that this one of the better restaurants on the Island. Excellent wine, salads, food and service from Peter. We stop back again and enjoy another fine dinning experience. Next time we want to try there deserts so are plan... More

For all the great restaurants in Hilton Head, my wife and I enjoyed this dining experience more than any other. Their Lamb chops, beet salad and fine wine are still being discussed when we go out months later

Love this restaurant anyway but had a chance to sit in the bar area & eat as it was packed during the Heritage Golf event, had a great meal, wonderful service and enjoyed fresh made mixers & cocktails by Sandy. Signing up for their cooking lessons hopefully in May. Great food consistently at Michael Anthony's!

What a wonderful restaurant! Service is impeccable, food is outstanding, atmosphere is relaxed and inviting. This will be a regular stop when we come to HHI! Beet salad was excellent, we had pasta, Casserecce con Salsicce, Gnocchi and probably the best Tiramisu I have tasted outside of Italy! So glad we included it in our vacation and we'll return!

What a great find! Tucked away but well worth the hunt. Everything was great, house made pastas and a wonderful wine list.

The whole experience was wonderful. Everyone we encountered was very friendly and helpful. I went with my grandma (who has a garlic allergy) and my boyfriend. When I booked the reservation, the person assured me they would be able to accommodate the allergy, and our wait staff (Jason & Peter) echoed the sentiment. Because so many of the dishes are...
