“Rude and Arrogant Owner/ Waiter”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed February 4, 2014

The rude waiter or maître-de that people are complaining about on Trip Advisor was probably Alfred! I cannot imagine a restaurant owner treating guests the way Alfred treated us tonight. When we asked for iced tea we were emphatically told that they did NOT serve tea any kind. Perhaps this was because the owner Alfred wanted plenty of wine around so that he could guzzle it between tables as we saw him doing when we went to the restrooms. He had the nerve to come and rearrange our silverware to the "correct" placement while we were eating after earlier snapping at my wife when she asked if they had any vegetarian options. The food was good but we will never return! It was obvious to us that unless you were a regular at this restaurant, Alfred could care less about pleasing you (he was very courteous to another table nearby whom he obviously knew).

“Thank goodness they reopened before we left HHI”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 1, 2014

Alfred's has been a long time favorite of ours when visiting Hilton Head Island. It's a tiny restaurant, seating only around 35-40 [including the few seats at the bar]. Tucked away in on of the little shopping areas on the South side of William Hilton Parkway, the big draw at Alfred's is the German food. Potato pancakes to die for.Outstanding weinerschnitzel, and if you have a B-I-G appetite, the German Sampler [Bratwurst, schnitzel, and sauerbraten] should be right up your alley. First rate service, too.

“Grandmother’s German Cooking”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 6, 2013

I had read that Alfred’s was a restaurant not to be missed and it lived up to the recommendations. The restaurant has an intimate dining room with approximately ten tables along with a dining bar overlooking the kitchen. The service and German dishes we had were fabulous. My first bite of the potato pancakes transported me back to my youth and memories of my grandmother’s German cooking. We had the Wienerschnitzel and the German Mixed Platter with spaetzle and red cabbage and enjoyed every last bite.

We look forward to returning to Alfred’s and trying his other dishes along with the excellent service from Guillermo.

“Excellent German Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 5, 2013

As other reviews have stated, this little restaurant is VERY hard to find--but we are glad that we persisted. The service was perfectly acceptable. What will bring us back is the food. My wienerschnitzel and my husband's duck were both delicious.
