We always enjoy the food and service at the Old Fort Pub! Be sure to arrive early enough to take in the beautiful sunsets over the marina.

In every respect. I hosted a Sunday brunch for eight people. The service, menu, drinks were fabulous. It was quiet, the view captivating. The birthday cake was scrumptious, presented beautifully. I was extremely pleased and thought the bill was very reasonable.

We went up to the roof to the widows walk for great views of Hilton Head at sunset. We didn't have dinner,... More

We've eaten here many times before, and the food and service are always excellent! The dishes are very creative and not what you normally see at other restaurants - even the other "fine dining" ones. We'll definitely return. Be sure to make a reservation early enough in the day, so that you can catch the beautiful sunset over the creek.... More

We visit Hilton Head every year and this place has become a family tradition. We sit on the patio and watch incredible sunsets. This year I had the Swordfish and my wife had the Salmon Special. The food was incredible as usual. The sunset was beautiful to watch through the moss laiden trees. What a wonderful last night on the... More

My husband's golf magazine recommended Old Fort Pub for a good place to dine. They were right. The food was delicious and the service was excellent. The restaurant overlooks the water and there is a very short trail (sidewalk) with historical markers indicating that it was a Civil War site. We walked the trail when we went to the restaurant...
