We stopped in after shopping nearby. Were seated immediately in the bar area in a small alcove table for 2. Very cozy! We were greeted warmly both at the door and at our table. We were brought water immediately and soon joined by our very informative waitress who quickly announced the 25% off small plates and alcohol for the 5-7... More

Heading home, we were discussing all the restaurants we've tried in Hilton head, and Wise Guys was my least favorite. It was fairly good, and we had some really good dishes, but compared to other restaurants, it was the most "pedestrian", least unique, etc. I will say that our favorite dishes were the baked Brie (really good bits accompanying), and...

We had a lovely dinner here this evening. We came at 5:00pm so our meal was 25% off. (25% discount between 5:00-5:45pm). I had the shrimp & grits followed by creme brûlée for desert. It was delicious. Our waiter, Sam, was excellent. He was friendly & knowledgeable about the menu. I highly recommend calling ahead for a reservation. They were... More

Had an awesome dinner at Wise Guys. Our server was friendly and efficient. My boneless ribs were delicious. My friend said his shrimp and grits was the best he ever had. Cannot wait to go back and try that dish!

The chicken and waffles small plate was awesome! And I thank the management for the complimentary dessert given on behalf of her birthday....chocolate fondue...yummy! My only complaint was the wedge salad...not truly a wedge... More

We have been going to Wiseguys for a few years during our annual Hilton Head trips. The menu is very eclectic and there is something for everyone. I like that there is a big selection of small plates. Very creative dishes, too. We got the cheese grits, home made potato chips, mushroom risotto, tuna lettuce wraps, beet salad, a fish... More

Our waiter, Chris, was most helpful, knowledgeable of the menu and food preparation, as well as courteous and attentive. Our dining experience was enhanced by his welcoming and friendly demeanor. The food options are numerous, the taste most pleasing to a variety of palates, giving us an excellent meal choice. Thank you!
