“One of the Best”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 19, 2013

I would have to put Hugo's as one of my top five restaurants in Hilton Head. We have enjoyed Hugo when he was at Fisgeralds and since he opened Hugo's many years ago. Excellent service, reasonable prices and an outstanding menu. What more could one ask for?

“Excellent Dining Experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 11, 2013

Our most recent dining experience at Hugo's was consistent with those during previous trips to Hilton Head (we go about 2-3 times a year) excellent! Hugo's has some of the best early bird specials and daily specials on Hilton Head. My wife had an excellent steak for $14.95 and I had a wonderful stuffed pork chop for $17.95. Service was excellent. We've never had a bad meal at Hugo's.

“Disapointing”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 7, 2013 via mobile

I went in with high expectations knowing that Hugo's has been well liked by the island locals and long time residents. Unfortunately, our experience was lack luster. We certainly did not feel welcomed when we entered and the meals did little to help improve upon the situation. Entrées were served lukewarm. Fish, though cooked appropriately, had little flavor and seemed less than fresh. All side items were given little thought, served cool, limp, and flavorless. On the other hand, our server was nice and accommodating. The French onion and soup de jour was very good. Given all the excellent options on the island, Hugo's is not an establishment I would return to or recommend.

“Overpriced bad food.”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 6, 2013

First time at Hugo's. We waited 10 minutes before a server asked for our drink order. We then waited 1 hour and 25 mins to get our food. My scallops wrapped in bacon were rubbery and my husbands lobster was also overcooked. The sides; rice and veggies were cold. We complained and the server said sorry and walked off. Overall, the entire experience sucked.

“Food and Service outstanding”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 28, 2013

We dined at this establishment on Valentines day.Reservation was honored at the time requested
We opted for the dinner and show they offered. I Hate Hamlet at the Arts center. Dinner was surperb,as was the tableside dessert Bananas Foster and Apple Crisp. Presentation of both something to watch.Our server Sue was outstanding, she sure knows how to treat a client.
We have been following Hugo since Fitzgeralds at N forest dr. then Wexford now at his present location.
If you want excellent food and caring service I suggest you make a visit to this fine establishment.
