We had trouble getting a reservation for 6 as we were told they were sold out every night for the entire week. Eventually we were able to get one because someone cancelled. We found the food to be above average and the entertainment wonderful. The night we were there a special quintet played and they are only there a limited number of times per year. The cover charge was $20 pp but other nights it runs more like $7. This is one of the few places I've every been that sold wine by the 1/2 bottle. It's the same wine in the 750ml bottles but half the size. That night a half bottle of LaCrema Pinot Noir was $24. I think you get about 2 normal pours of wine in the half bottle. It is such an intimate place and you'll really enjoy being up close and personal with the performers. TIP: If you want just desert or a drink to enjoy the music, wait till after 9:30 and go. This is when the band will be on break before their second set and many people leave after the first. Much easier to get in!

This was our second visit to the Jazz Corner. The food and entertainment were wonderful! The service and attention to detail was great! The food is a little expensive but worth the cost. We have been following Bobby Ryder for thirty years; we first heard him at the Mariner's Inn -- now the Omni in Hilton Head. He is a great musician; his show is fun and entertaining. Look forward to returning to The Jazz Corner whenever we return to Hilton Head! Pat & Larry, Winter Haven, Fl.

We went to the Jazz Corner after reading the sterling reviews on Trip Advisor. My wife made reservations by phone and asked to be seated at 7:00. She was told it was sold out, but we could be seated at 6:30. Good enough, but when we arrived, there were only two other tables occupied and at 7:00, fully 75% of the restaurant was empty. Although it quickly filled up for the show at 8:00, I still can't figure out why we had to be there at 6:30. Be that as it may, the rest of the evening was great. Our waiter, Jorge, was attentive and we were never rushed. The food was above average, but the real treat is the live music. The venue is small, so you can really feel the music as it's played. The night we were there, the owner joined the group for the first set, and they really were spectacular, especially the pianist who was incredible!!
Finally, the owner comes to speak to every table between sets, which was a nice, personal touch. All in all, a great place to eat some excellent food and listen to some great Jazz musicians (even if it was a half hour earlier than we wanted!)

Four star food meets six star entertainment for an outstanding evening of food and fun. Filet was tender, salads were very good, the jazz was amazing. We went on a Wednesday, saw Bobby Ryder, and everyone in our group from 8 years to 70-something had a blast. The restaurant is small and the show felt intimate, Ryder interacted with the audience, and the owner came up and played on stage for a bit for a magical evening. It was worth booking two months in advance!
