Description: The Kingfisher Seafood, Pasta & Steakhouse is a casual Old World Mediterranean décor waterfront restaurant located center-island in beautiful Shelter Cove Harbour. We have beautiful water views where dolphins and pelicans frequent. Large hand-painted murals of Mediterranean scenes adorn the walls. The spacious rooms have large dark-stained wood beams and Tuscan patterned carpet. We have all-you-can-eat pasta specials for under $10 for the hardy appetite (choice of 3 pastas and 6 sauces). We also have nightly selections for fresh seafood often including Grouper, Sea Bass, Mahi-Mahi, Salmon, Covina, Cobia plus more. These are prepared differently based on what you like. For the meat lovers we have Prime Rib, Steaks, and BBQ Ribs. Happy Hour in our lounge is the happiest on the Island with $2.50 Kingfisher drafts, $3 wine and $4 well drinks -- from 5-8 daily. Plus we have the best raw oysters and peel-&-eat shrimp at terrific prices. (See menu button above) Cap-off the evening with Las Vegas quality Comedy in the upstairs showroom. Free and convenient close private parking lot. Serving dinner from 5pm to 9pm. GPS? Enter 18 Harbourside Ln,HH, SC.

The filet mignon and the ribs were fantastic. Happy hour is the greatest! We go there every year during our stay at HHI at least twice. We love the Bloody Marys

“Special Nite With Friends!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 7, 2012

Our dear friends are relocating from the area and we decided to all get together before their departure. I chose the Kingfisher. Upon arriving, our wonderful experience began at the door with our friendly hostess. She provided us with a lovely waterview. Our waitress, Ms. Heaven was a true delight. Top of her game, with the most prompt and efficient waitress we have ever met. She never missed a beat tending to our table of 5. Our food was tasty, hoping for a larger portion in the future. Overall, thumbs up to a great place and staff!

“Moving away dinner party”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 6, 2012

The server we had was Sky Heaven. She was a very wonderful girl. I have been involved in all aspects of food service and to tell you the truth this girl really knows her job and performs very well. She IS DEFINITELY a valuable asset to Kingfisher. My hat off to the chef. Most wonderful prepared seafood. Not greasy and a wonderful taste. This is a perfect restaurant to dine in no matter what the occasion or just for a nice evening out. The staff are all so wonderful and work together like a team. This manager should be proud of himself/herself and his/her staff.
