Five stars for outstanding service by Kristian!

Service and food were impeccable. Lucy was our waitress and she was wonderful. We had a table of 8 with 6 adults and 2 children (8 and 11). She was excellent with her attitude and knowledge of food as well as meeting whatever adjustments we requested. Definitely would eat here again and ask for Lucy!

Our first meal in Hilton Head, and it was an excellent experience. The atmosphere was classy and our server was outstanding, and made a number of helpful suggestions, especially for our 5 year old grandson's dinner, as they did not have a Kids menu. It turned out great. All our meals were delicious and the pescatore pasta, about the best... More

It was our first time dining at Michael Anthonys And and was a little disappointed. Table service could be improved, we ordered a bottle of wine, after opening and pouring the first glasses, our waiter left us to pour for ourselves. The food was good, but the wine list was very week, for a fine dining restaurant.

Great food, great service, and a great family dinner. The early bird special is worth giving a try if you have kids. This is a solid go to dinner spot. Call and make a reservation because it gets crowded.

We travel to Hilton Head several times each year and always make sure that we eat at Michael Anthony's each time. Not only is the food excellent every time, but the staff and chefs go out of their way to make sure that you have a great experience. Nothing is a problem for them. We and the guests that we...

The food was very good, however the service was one of the best experience's ever. The interaction of Kristian and Brooklyn with my family made the evening FIRST CLASS. Thank You Kristian & Brooklyn!

This is an upscale restaurant which exceeded our expectations for a resort area like Hilton Head. The wine selection is outstanding and our waitress, Brooklyn, knew the menu and ingredients flawlessly. The food is easily worth the price.
