Fairly disappointed with the quality of the food, especially at their prices. I have eaten several places where the plate price is in the $20+ range and it be well worth it. I got the broiled seafood combination and would have been more pleased eating at Golden Coral.

Great food & service was excellent. Our waiter was Sam & he always makes the meal extra special. We celebrated our anniversary and we were given a really wonderful desert.

We were a party of two on a Monday night....we were seated at 7:45. Bus boy gave us some water and said waiter would be by shortly. At 8:15 we were finally given wine, but then he took it away to find a cooler. We wanted to leave but wanted to give the place a try since a friend highly... More

This restaurant is elegant, contemporary. I will definitely revisit this venue. But call ahead to make a reservation. We ate late and still had to wait a short time. The wait was worth it. The food was excellent. Predictably, my daughter ordered crab filets aka: crab cakes, and praised their flavor and crab content. I had the short ribs that... More

We made reservations so we were seated quickly in the dining room. The atmosphere is nice and the staff are well trained and very attentive. Early Dining Discount We went for the early dining discount (25%) - if you take advantage of this offer make sure you place your order before 5:45. We found this a little stressful as we... More

We chose to eat here this past Sunday night after reading various reviews. It was the first night of our trip and we were not disappointed! We arrived shortly after their opening which turned out to be an early bird special offering 25% off total check! (Apparently this happens daily)The dining area is very comfortable and conducive to private dining... More

This was our first visit to Hilton Head and we chose WiseGuys based on so many good reviews. It did not disappoint! Friendly staff, great atmosphere, and fantastic food! Filet Mignon for the hubby and the local fish special for me... both were delicious! The lemon drop martini was spot on. Would definitely visit again!

Servers were kind, polite and professional not necessarily warm and inviting though. Got the porterhouse for two it was delicious however $10 difference than their website advertised... More

One of my new favorites on the island. We visit Hilton head every year and like to try a new restaurant every time we visit. We decided to try out Wise Guys and were extremely happy with our choice. We were sat on the patio and even on a warm summer evening stayed cool because they have fans to help... More
