Nice view but not worth the price. Food was OK, but for the price I expected much better. Order seafood combo and the scallops were not cooked and the fish portions extremely small. This is definitely a tourist place.

We decided to try this restaurant since it had such wonderful reviews and were not disappointed. The food was wonderful, had beautiful views and service was great. I did make a reservation and glad I did.

We've been here many times. Great food, service, and view. We had our 1 year old and 3 year old with us this year and ate around 5:30. There were many young children/families dining while we were there.

The wait was a bit long but that's because of the number of people wanting to eat there. Once you get seated though, the service was prompt and the food was great. Definitely a return visit down the road.

The hushpuppies were good, the meal was OK and the view was beautiful, but I don't see myself going back.

Best restaurant on Hilton Head for a sunset dinner. Excellent food; don't forget to ask for the hush puppies. Early diners get the preferred seating.

From the reservation process, to the table location (AMAZING VIEWS) to the best darn oysters savannah we have ever had. This place was amazing. Great service, attentive sweet waiters and waitresses. The bathroom was immaculate with an awesome little toilet bowl cleaner sprayer (important when you have a 2 year old who sits on the potty). THIS PLACE WAS AWESOME.... More

We went here a few weeks ago and choose it out of convenience because we had a reservation for a fireworks cruise which was right underneath the restaurant and we heard it was good. The service was friendly and the view has to be one of the best on the island but the food just didn't get it done. One... More

The Old Oyster Factory never disappoints. If you're looking for fine dining, this isn't it, but if you're there for a gorgeous view and good food then you're in the right place!

We had not gone there in years thinking it was too much like a production line catering to tourists. But grandkids were in town so we wanted a view and personally wanted raw oysters. Indeed it was crowded but we got a great table next to window with wonderful view of broad creek at high tide! Blue water, green marsh... More
