I went to the restaurant with out of town clients. The retaurant had a 4 to 5 start rating. The service was wonderful, the wine list was excellent, but the food was just OK. The best part was the meal was the desert and coffee. I know I will not go back unless a guest requests it.

Just stopped in this evening for a glass of beer and a glass of wine. Fantastic service at the bar! Decided to have a light appetizer dinner. She crab soup was amazing along with the lobster quesadilla. Wait staff showed us the upstairs dining area and observation deck. Booked our Saturday dinner overlooking the water. Don't miss this on your... More

We tried Old Fort Pub for the first time and would go back in a heartbeat. This was probably the best meal we have had on Hilton Head and one of the best meals the 4 of us have had anywhere. Because it was the slow season, they had a 3 course meal special for $34 and the soups, salads... More

My wife and I went to the Old Fort Pub for dinner on New Years Eve. Despite the packed house, our service was not rushed, with lots of good advice on menu choices from our waiter. The she crab soup was excellent, and both the rack of lamb and the filet were wonderfully prepared, with lots of interesting touches complementing... More

The Old fort Pub is in Hilton head Plantation which is the north end of the island. The water view from the large windows Is lovely as is the dining room.. Sunsets are especially beautiful. We go on special occasions and for Sunday brunch... It is worth it. Enjoy.

Actually ate here last Valentines Day and forgot to review. We did have a bit of a wait for our table, but I know it was because of the date. The view is amazing, but it was too cold to be outdoors for long. Looking forward to returning when it is warm. It is upscale and elegant. The food is... More

My wife and I went to the Old Fort Pub for what we hoped would be a quiet Christmas Eve dinner. When we were seated, I noticed how loud it was. We both had ordered the Filet Mignon, which was really superb (when you can cut a steak with a bread knife, it is special). I was seated next to... More

Old Fort Pub has been in our “top three Hilton Head Island list” since the 1980’s. Whether it is the Sunday Brunch or the evening dinner, we have enjoyed Old Fort Pub 35-40 visits.

My husband and I dined here the night before Thanksgiving. It was lovely. Here is attention to detail - I had on black slacks and when our server took us to our table he changed out the white napkins for black so I wouldn't get white fuzz on my clothes! How I've wished for that in other restaurants! We started... More
