“Excellent jazz with scrumptious meal - Who could ask for more?”
Reviewed September 17, 2011

Well, it is a cozy club - restaurant that looks like it holds 75 people. Their are beautiful jazz photos & paintings depicting musicians and jazz instruments everywhere. It is tight cocktail seating with a small elevated stage. You immediately get the feeling that a good show is about to happen as you see a giant gorgeous cello, flute, saxophones, grand piano, French horn, clarinet - all sitting on a spot lit stage. We ordered mojitos and mussels with chorizo sausage appetizer. One is plenty for two people. Wow, were the drinks fabulous And the mussels appetizer came with two gorgeous triangle pieces of thick tuscan garlic bread to eat the delicious tomato pepper onion broth with the tenderest succulent mussels you will ever eat. The dinner was perfect too: my husband had Mediterranean seafood pasta. The shrimp was sweet and tasted like lobster - tilapia and scallops were also in a lemon butter sauce. Splendid. I enjoyed shrimp & scallops with cheddar cheese whipped cream grits with spinach - you could lick the plate it it so tasty and delicious. The scallops are like souffles they were so tender. dessert doesn't disappoint - bananas with custard cake and candied pecans - it came in a leaning tower glass for easy spoon eating. The presentation of the food is artistic, the music and sound system was fabulous and is worth every penny. It is on the pricey side but you can sit all nite and enjoy the musicians entertain and jam on their instruments. A Must visit on Hilton Head.

“What a place”
Reviewed September 16, 2011

Fantastic food, atmosphere and phenomenal music, this is a must for any time spent on the island. My wife and were there Sptember 13 for our second visit and just had a blast. Reservations are an absolute must and it's well worth your time to check their website for upcoming attractions as they have some fabulous musicians coming by in addition to the off-the-charts house band led by owner and band leader Bob Mastellar. Go there and have much fun!!

“Nice spot”
Reviewed September 14, 2011

I really liked the jazz corner. The music changes weekly but teh night I was there was excellent. The food is great as well. A tad bit pricey if you don't want an entire 3-course meal plus $20 for the show, but i really enjoyed myself and they comped me a CD.
My only complaint is the step-up terraced seating along the side of the restaurant. Sitting on the banquette gives a great view of the stage but I found it was a bit too low and I could not stretch my legs out under the table or else they would "fall of the edge. I had to keep my legs tightly tucked and that sucked in the heel i was wearing.
BUT I would visit again in a heart beat. Realy nice spot.

“Simply The Best”
Reviewed September 12, 2011

The Jazz Corner is a must go when in Hilton Head. The cozy atmosphere partnered with great musicians make it a romantic and entertaining night. It is obvious that the owners are proud of their restaurant and have put much thought and work into making it a top spot in Hilton Head Island. Besides the great venue at The Jazz Corner, the food is some of the best I've had. We had the mussles appetizer, the seafood pasta and the shrimp and scallops over grits, and the carrot cake dessert. All were delicious, great portions and well thought out. If you enjoy great food and entertainment, you MUST go to The Jazz Corner
