We always make it a point to visit Michael Anthony's at least once during our trips to the island. The food is always perfect, the ambience is warm and welcoming, and the service is fantastic. Great wine list, too!

What can I say. We have been coming here to eat while on vacation every year since the restaurant opened 12 years ago. It is the food quality and attention to detail that breeds this loyalty. Went with a group of 7 including children. Cesar salad was excellent as was the caprese salad. Kids had house made pasta while adults... More

My husband and I visited Hilton Head Island on the spur of the moment to reconnect and relax before the frenzy of the fall season began.

We found Michael Anthony's in the Hilton Head Restaurant brochure we had picked up, so we were not sure what to expect. What a first class experience! The food was excellent and the service was equally impressive. We... More

The class was well organized and very informative. The recipes were simple and outstanding. Everyone in the class ate together following the class. There was enough food for our lunch... More

Last night we visited this restaurant at the advice of a person who lives on HIlton Head Island. Jay was our server and was very attentive. He was also very informative of the island. The beet salad appetizer was delicious as was my spaghetti with crab followed by tiramisu. We will definitely be returning and I have already recommended the... More
