Ate at the old oyster factory on the annual family vacation to hilton head island. As there was a long line, we sat at the bar for cocktails and food. Our server/bartender, Gretchen was fantastic. She was very attentive and knowledgable.

There's a string of large, fish-style restaurants along they bay in Hilton Head, and this is one of the best. The restaurant is a big wooden A-frame place, whose high ceilings and large windows give you a good view of the water regardless of where you sit. The wait staff is friendly and efficient, and the menu a no-nonsense presentation of really good, fairly simply prepared fish. We had Gulf Oysters that were fresh and delicious; really good hush puppies (which not every restaurant can manage, even in South Carolina); and good entrees like a "low country boil" and other local preparations. The price was right too, which means this place isn't as outrageously expensive as other tourist-oriented restaurants on Hilton Head. It's situated in a beautiful location, near a kayak touring launch, and many of our party took pictures in front of the swaying long grasses and the beautiful water.

Arrived at 5:30 and promptly seated next to a window with a terrific view overlooking the water. Staff very pleasant. Quality of food was excellent. Pricing was similar to other comparable restaurants in the area. Would recommend and return.

Our family/friends group has been to the Old Oyster Factory twice in the last 2 years. Both times we had a very pleasant experience. The food is good, but not great, and the service was excellent both times. We love the spaciousness of the building and the way it has been restored. We especially liked the dessert menu. They were very accommodating with giving us a nice big round table in the area with a lovely view.
