My wife and I normally visit HHI twice a year, and have been doing so for the last 10 years. While on the Island, we always make it a point to dine at Michael Anthony's, and it is not at all an understatement to say that it is one our favorite restaurants on HHI. The entire dining experience is always... More

Michael Anthony's is a large fine dining restaurant in a strip shopping area, but a nice one. The restaurant's ambience makes a friendly and warm impression upon entering. The owners gave us a warm greeting when we entered. The first floor area well done, upbeat, lively and just looked like fun. Unfortunately we were seated in the second floor dining... More

Enjoyed a nice dinner with friends. We all liked our meals and cleared our plates with room for delicious desserts. Awesome beet salad and Profiterole alla Cioccolata and sformata (perfect in size and done well) were fantastic desserts.

I visited Hilton Head this past week and my dining experience at Michael Anthony's was by far the best. They offer a great selection of wine and cocktails, the food was outstanding, and the service and staff made the experience truly enjoyable.

We recently dined at Michael Anthony's over Labor Day weekend. The meal was absolutely superb and the service was excellent. We shared two different pasta dishes. The Bolognese sauce was delicious. Great wine list, extensive menu, outstanding chef and service. Highly recommend during a visit to Hilton Head Island.

This is a great restaurant. We were a party of 6 seated in the front dining room which had a nice comfortable and warm ambience. The meal was amazing from start to finish. I started with the sautéed calamari then the Involtini Vitello as my entree. The rest of our table had a variety of fresh pastas and fish. We... More

We were seeking a new restaurant to celebrate our 25th anniversary and the write-up in a local magazine caught my eye....the owners, the atmosphere, the feature dishes, the longevity of success....we were surprised to enter an office park location and then walk into a beautiful Italian setting and friendly atmosphere. The bar was so comfortable and the staff very friendly;... More
