“Vacation Dining”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2014

We were greeted and seated immediately at a nice table. Service throughout the night was very good. The avocado/arugula salad was excellent, wontons, beef carpaccio and goat cheese crepes small plates were excellent, but the lobster risotto just didn't make it. The pork entrée was also good, but not great. Bananas Foster with vanilla ice cream dessert was also very good. So a little up and a little down. Overall would recommend though. Dish selection is key.

“Not Hilton Head and Just Average”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2014

For people who love the average style northeast restaurant, especially local New york style restaurants than you will enjoy this place. People like the association with so called Wise Guys and get caught up in the atmosphere. t's busy, noisy and the food is fair or average for the price. The service was good, the wine corked and musty. Tasted more like vinegar. Had to send two glasses back. if you don't know good food and wine and want to get the New york Feel there are much better places to eat in New York. When visiting Hilton Head there are a great number of much better Italian restaurants than this one. I personally would not go again!

“Great service and excellent food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2014

My husband and I dined here for the first time a few nights ago, and despite having to wait (we reccomend getting reservations) they got us in quicker than our quoted time. Our waitress Kate was very energetic and up beat. My husband likes to give the wait staff a hard time (he thinks he is funny) and she laughed and gave it right back to him. Her food suggestions were exactly what we were looking for and her wine suggestions were spot on, it's almost like she just knew us! We will absolutely be back before we head back home and plan to tell all of our friends about this place! Hands down the best meal we've had this trip!

“Great little spot!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2014

Went for ladies night out, and we had a great time. The small plates and the wine our server Kate recommended were awesome. Our server let us enjoy our night, and had a charming personality. We will definitely be back again!

“Amazing food in quaint atmosphere and great early bird special!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2014

We have visited Wise Guys 4 time now on our trips to HHI. We have always had a good experience. The steaks are amazing and the short ribs fall apart. My son loves the pizza and the chicken fingers are fresh hand breaded that even the adults enjoy. The best part is if you get your order in by 5:45, you get the early bird special which is 25% off your entire check including alcohol. This will be a regular stop for us every year. Oh and the Mac and cheese is to die for!
