“The Best Restaurant on Hilton Head Island”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013

This is one of the finest restaurants I have ever been to. It is undoubtly the best restaurant on Hilton Head and one of the finest in the world. Everyone from the phone answerers to the head chef are first class. The service is impeccable and the food is great. Try the Carpaccio di Manzo or the Tagliatelli Bolognese.

“Cooking School at Michael Anthony's”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 9, 2013

Michael Anthony's is a fabulous restaurant here on Hilton Head, if visiting you need to make your reservation a day or two ahead of time. My favorite is their Monk Fish! Outstanding! I recently went to their cooking school that is held upstairs during the day and it was wonderful. I just wish I would have started to go to there much sooner. The chef explains how and what he is doing, and you get to ask as many questions as you like. You receive the recipes and most important you get to eat the great food, and have great wine to go with it. Well worth the cost.
