“Good food, decent prices, great service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2013

We received excellent service despite being there w/4 kids. Our food was good. The prices for an early dinner were decent for the location. We would return.

“Great staff, crazy busy in July”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 19, 2013

Was in the area for a medical conference. Sat at the bar and the bartenders were so friendly and knowledgable we felt like we had been there forever. I ordered the stuffed shrimp, which was fine, and my husband had the Grouper, which was cooked just right.

“Nice restaurant in Shelter Cove.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 18, 2013 via mobile

We went for the fireworks on Tue night. We had a great dinner at the Kingfisher. The fish was fresh and cooked to order and perfection. A bit expensive like all of the seafood restaurants. Server was seasonal help but very good. It was enjoyable but they did not have an expansive menu.

ToddKF, Owner at Kingfisher Seafood Restaurant, responded to this review, July 19, 2013
Thank you for posting for the Kingfisher. I am glad you enjoyed the food and our restaurant. We try very hard to keep our seafood costs low priced. As you may know, when you buy fresh, "never frozen" it costs more. Also, we prepare most all side dishes, dressings, sauces in our kitchen. This can actually save costs for food, albeit the labor is a little more expensive. In the end we have a better menu and food for our patrons.

Thanks again,
Todd - Owner

“We Return Every Summer”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2013 via mobile

Every time we are on Hilton Head Island, we eat at Kingfisher. Brian, our server, was very professional, funny and efficient even though the restaurant was busy tonight. The food is the best on HH at half the price of some of the chains.
