“Great location but average food.”
Reviewed April 23, 2012

The patio location overlooking Shelter Cove marina is delightful as was the folk singer.

My fish sandwich was ok but my partner's oysters were not good.

Smoking at outdoor bar was unwelcome!

“Nice place, but we had to eat inside to avoid the wait”
Reviewed April 12, 2012

Seems like a lot of people end up with the same server that we had, Scott. Good guy, knew his way around the place and despite having large groups, he did a good job with us.
The place had a nice atmosphere but we had an extremely loud large group of drunk Sr. Citizens next to us. Not the restaurant's fault.
Food was pretty good, and the price was about average for any of the eateries at Sheltered Cove. I would return here, especially if I could get a table outside.

“Everything Was Great”
Reviewed April 11, 2012

Great Food - Great Atmosphere - Great Service... as I stated everything was great. Prices were no different than another seafood restaurant on the island. Scott (not the owner), our server, was attentive & we had engaged in friendly banter! He knew I was conscious of eating a bit healthier and made the decision, without me knowing, to put the butter sauce on the side instead of directly on the fish. He did good. I probably wouldn’t have liked my fish as much if the butter was on it. Thank you!

“Meh food, nice atmosphere”
Reviewed April 9, 2012

The guy playing acoustic guitar makes a nice breezy atmosphere but the food was so-so at best. Nothing terrible but nothing really great either. It was a short walk from our resort and the Shelter Cove restaurant and shopping area is really cute.

“Okay Place with A Pleasant View for Lunch”
Reviewed March 28, 2012 via mobile

Scott's as has a pleasant view on Hilton Head's Shelter Cove so on a nice sunny day it certainly is a good choice. The fried oysters were a little heavy on the batter with run of the mill french fries. The special fish tacos were good and filling.
