We visited on 8/22/26, Our first impression, wow, this is nice. (When I made the reservation I was asked if anyone in our party had trouble with stairs, none of us did). So, I wasn't surprised when the escorted us upstairs. 2nd impression, so, this is where they send families with young children...(we had our infant grandson with our group).... More

Have paid a lot less for better food than this restaurant. Very unanimated serving staff who are polite enough to try and secure the tip without being friendly. Food is good but not great and upselling is their aim. Better places on HHI than this for the money.

Three other ladies went with me to Michael Anthony's for the Early Bird Special dinner. We were all delighted with the food ad had great service from our waitress, Lucy. The price was so reasonable for a gourmet meal. I highly recommend this restaurant if you are ever in Hilton Head.

We enjoyed two fabulous meals at Michael Anthony's on a recent trip to Hilton Head Island. On the first visit, we sampled the gnocchi (outstanding), osso bucco (special) and spaghetti pomodoro. My parents enjoyed the veal parmigiana and the osso bucco. Our waitress, Nicki, was a delight. She had such a nice personality and a real passion for food (and... More

Our first visit will not be our last. Impeccable service, delicious dishes. We started with the beet salad and the carpaccio, then moved on to gamberi al burro and occhi di lupo alla sardignola All absolutely delicious and nicely presented. A very nice sparlkling chardonnay was offered as a perfect companion but the tiramisu at the finish topped it all.... More

We highly recommend Michael Anthony's. A good break from some of the more touristy seafood places. My husband and I both had delicious veal entrees and primi size portions of fresh and flavorful pasta. The selection of Italian wines was also top notch. Our server, Lucy, was great. Make sure to try this place on your next visit to HHI!
