Almost passed this place up because, of course we didn't have a reservation. Party of 5 (2 adults 3 kids 12, 11 and 7) was a 1 hour wait. Well it was well worth it! Them menu is impressive with a great verity, and then the specials. Wow! We had from one end of the spectrum to the other. Grilled... More

We enjoyed a late dinner for four. Service was good. Food was tasty. Little bit on expensive side. Nice place to eat a Fresh Fields.

I would suggest reservations - especially in the summer. We went and only 2 times were available although there seemed plenty of empty tables. I imagine they must space them out for service, the kitchen, and to avoid feeling crowded. I had the heirloom tomato, fresh mozzarella Caprese salad special which was excellent, the broiled Canadian lobster with aspagarus and... More

Hadn't tried Hege's due to many reviews of mediocre food and high prices, but reviewed Prix Fixed menu and decided to go during recent visit. It is the only "nice" restaurant near Freshfield Village. Online menu is not consistent with the actual menu and our choices either were no longer available or were more expensive off the Prix Fixed list.... More

Ate here on our first night in Kiawah. Awesome server, delicious food (she crab soup is yummy). Actually, all of our food was great! Try this place if you can!

Nice restaurant with great service. We go to Hege's every time we are on Kiawah. We usually have 8-20 people in our party. Food is excellent and not terribly overpriced. Love the Freshfield's market area.

We were a group of over 20 people so we had reservations and were immediately seated. Almost everyone had a different menu except for a couple of us who were able to get the last sea bass for the day. Excellent. Staff was very good, efficient and friendly. The "ambience" was fun and we all enjoyed ourselves. Everyone else appeared... More

Fortunately on our second visit to Kiawah found a jewel in Fresh Fields! They have an extensive wine selections, excellent, varied menu, and the wait and chef superior! Nice NOLA type feel of cuisine and the desserts amazing. AND best cheeseburger AND onion rings around for those not feeling the coastal seafood! 10. Will def return!

Finally found a place with attentive service and very good food in Kiawah. After trying three other places earlier and having lousy service and mostly so-so food, we went into Hege's with low expectations and pretty much ready to head into Charleston if this failed. For the first time all week, the hostess greeted us with a smile. At first,... More

Hege's is a very nice restaurant but overpriced in my opinion. My husband and I both had soft-shelled crabs, which were very tasty, but $40 for 2 crabs with aioli and a small portion of spicy slaw seemed a bit steep. Just sayin'.
