We are reluctant to review a second time; however, Old Fort Pub must rate five stars! Our November review was fantastic, and our New Year’s holiday review is even better.
Old Fort Pub serves prodigious dinners and brunches. For the demographic with disposable income, Old Fort Pub is incredible!
Both the manager and our server, Danny recalls our November visit, and Danny recites exactly that we choose the deck as well as our dining selection. Please request Danny.
We knew we would holiday over New Years at Marriott SurfWatch villas, and took care to make Sunday Brunch reservations at our favorite Hilton Head Island property, Old Fort Pub.
We are greeted as if we are locals, and five weeks annually at Marriott SurfWatch villas may qualify us as semi-residents. Danny takes care to indicate the special $22.00 Brunch, which is a soup, entrée, and wine. Mimosa is an option; however, perhaps not! Once in Sanibel, I ordered two mimosas while my wife was distracted. She returned, and observed the “orange juice” taste strange. I confessed. She countered, “what a perfect waste of freshly squeezed orange juice," and I learned.
Old Fort Pub brews coffee by the cup! We ordered a crawfish soup and a she crab soup, and joyfully shared both.
From past experiences, we understand that Old Fort Pub offers perhaps the BEST shrimp and grits in the low country, and we both ordered this entrée.
I have reserved an 11:00AM table, and we choose the interior white tablecloth table nearest to the deck. We enjoy the visit of eight dolphins leaping laps on Skull Creek as well as a few pelicans. Our brunch is a delightful two-hour experience with great Chardonnay.
We notice that nearly 60% of the men are in suits, jackets, and ties. The women have taken care to dress for an outing, and gold, diamonds, and Rolexes are in abundance.
Sunday’s clientele reflects affluence and civility, and this is exactly our dining goal on Hilton Head.
As we take our leave, my wife seeks a walking tour of Fort Mitchel, which was improvised by the Yankees during “the war of the Northern Aggression." The Yankees occupied Hilton Head during the Civil War, and I dare observe that the Yankees have occupied modern Hilton Head.
