“Top Ten for a Reason”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 30, 2012

So you're trying to decide where to enjoy that special dinner event and you see that Michael Anthony's is at the top of TripAdvisor's list of HH restaurants. My review is no different than the many before me. The food is great and the choices will certainly put a smile on your face. In my case, all of this is true with an added bonus. We sat at the bar and was served by Ryan. His knowledge of wines and the composition of the food on the menu, helped to make this visit special. Also, sitting at the bar area was one of HH's top master chefs, whose well known restaurant isn't open on Mondays. This is a big plus for Michael Anthony's when the best of the chefs eats at your restaurant on their day off.

“Cooking School and Marketplace are TOPS on HHI.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 28, 2012

I hve attended many of the cooking classes and LOVE them. They have changed the format to guest chefs but it is still a great learning experience. Expensive classes and restaurant but it is worth every penny. Marketplace is a real find as well. Have bought a lot of cooking treasures there; try the vanilla paste. LOVE IT!

“The Best restaurant on Hilton Head!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 26, 2012

We have been going to Hilton Head for vacation over the last 8 years, and have eaten at Michael Anthony's several times. It is, by far, the best restaurant we've eaten at on the island; and that's saying a lot, because there are many good restaurants there. We have never had just a "good" meal, but every meal has been EXCELLENT! Also, they are very accommodating & knowledgeable when it comes to serving a customer like me with a gluten allergy. Their gluten free pasta was so good, I had to do a double take, because at first I thought they had served me "real" pasta! If you visit HHI, you must make a reservation here. If you do, you'll go back again, and again.

“Hard to Top”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 24, 2012

I had two of the special for dinner, the crab cake appetizer and grouper and risotto entree. Both were exceptional. The service could not have been better. We will be regulars.
