We enjoy our visits as we always find the menu items interesting and tasty. Options from upscale pizza to steak, fresh fish and lovely salads. There is a nice bar to have a drink & have some bar food. Good service, moderate prices for Kiawah.

Hege's offers a fairly impressive sounding menu that carries prices that would indicate a quality meal. In reality the price is the only thing that is high. The food is very average. I'd suggest you find a TGI Fridays for a similar experience at a lower price. On this particular trip the service was also less than expected. I'm not... More

The food at Hege's is amazing- the sea bass special was one of the best I've ever had. The wine selection is also good. The service was great and the staff was very helpful/attentive while not being overbearing. So many delicious food options I'd basically recommend anything on the menu!

Excellent food & service. The 2 men in our group had the filet which they both said was great. My mom had the lobster/shrimp scampi and I had the she crab soup (which is probably the best i've ever had) & sea bass...both excellent. I would definitely recommend it!

My wife and I dined here the night before Thanksgiving and liked it so much we went back for Thanksgiving dinner. We were staying nearby at the Andell Inn and the restaurant is a short walk from there. Nice bar, beautiful dining area and excellent service. We enjoyed our dinners here and highly recommend the restaurant.

Hege's is an interesting bistro, with an active bar section and delicious foods served by knowledgeable staff. Nice wine list and great martinis too.

Everyone goes to Hege's and for good reason. Great food, wine and atmosphere. I was there the night a French 3 course meal was an option and I loved it. We each ordered something different and all enjoyed the food. Many entrees to choose from too. If you are on Seabrook or surrounding vicinity this is the place to eat.

Very nice quiet place. Service was good. The food was very good. The price fix menu is a good way to go. Can't go wrong for a low key dinner. Would go back.

The menu is varied, but the quality of the food for the price was not what our party expected. When I spend $50 for a meal that is a fixed price, I expect that to food will be cooked properly. The fish was overcooked. The desserts were very good and the service was excellent.
