“Great Seafood”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 30, 2012

First time there. Had a great meal. They were having specials,(soup, entre, desert, glass of wine) all for $24.99. Staff was friendly, and very attentive. Not overbearing, just enough. Will definitely go back.

“Wonderful view, delicious food, amazing service!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 30, 2012

We visited the Old Oyster Factory as our last night's "celebration" dinner after a week in Hilton Head. We have visited the island many times but never the Old Oyster Factory. We were pleasantly surprised at the delicious food, which is not always the case in a restaurant with a view. The best part was the service, which was extremely attentive and helpful. The management did a wonderful job as well, keeping the full restaurant feeling unrushed by ensuring that no section received more than 1 new table at one time. It was beautifully run and a model of efficiency. We will definitely return!

“atmosphere, service and food were excellent.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 20, 2012

my wife and I had the early-bird special of mahi mahi and everything was just top notch. we had a table over looking the bay with the sun setting. The waiter was great and the food was as good as the reviews say it is. We were definitely satisfied and would recommend this to anyone.

“Looks Aren't Everything”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 18, 2012

Old Oyster Factory was recommended by a fellow traveler, and our hopes were high when we walked inside. It is located on the water, making for a beautiful view. The dining area is lovely, with lots of brightly polished wood and a nautical theme. However, the food was only a bit above average. The soups were quite good. We ordered peel and eat shrimp, but they were simply boiled with no spices. The price was good though, since it was happy hour and we got 20 of them for $10. No flavor, though. There aren't too many entrees to choose from. The scallops were good, but expensive ($26.95) and didn't come with salad. The small dessert selection had only very heavy selections. The wine list was extensive but there were only about 6 beers available. This place didn't live up to its reputation as far as the food goes, but it might make for a nice happy hour if you can sit outside on the deck and drink wine.

“Always one of our HHI favorites”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 16, 2012

Hilton Head Island has many fine restaurants, and the Old Oyster Factory has long been one of our favorites. The laid-back vibe and quality, mid-priced entrees make it a pleasant evening. The restaurant sits on the bank of Broad Creek, which cuts through the center of the island and provides nice water views. Plenty of windows to see the stars for nighttime dining, too.
