“Seafood made right! Everything was absolutely delicious!”
Reviewed October 14, 2012

Just left RedFish and had to get on here right away to write about the visit, or I should say "rave" about the visit.
Food was prepared PERFECTLY! Bread , which to me, can tell me how much they care about their food, was just great! Very fresh, chewy crust and soft inside, just the way we love it, so we knew the rest was going to be good. We started with the crispy shrimp spring rolls with a spicy sauce. Fabulous! I almost cancelled my order and just was going to go with another order of these! My husband ordered the Hawaiian Opah fish for his entree, a very meaty but light fish with some fat in it, so very moist, served on a tomato and crouton salad bed, topped with sauteed spinach. Yum! I don't care for fish, but I did take a small bite of it, and the server, Paul, who was very knowledgeable and friendly, was absolutely right- I would say that even if you don't like fish, you will probably like this . Great taste, and not "fishy", or dry because of the fat in the fish so much more moist. Hubby also ordered the local kale, sauteed with butter and olive oil, but still almost slightly crispy, with that pretty green color, instead of overcooked and mushy like alot of places make it, and, as hubby said, 'JUST RIGHT!'. i got the seared sea scallops, and they were WONDERFUL! Cooked just right, not dry, not overcooked, with a pan crispness on the very edges that was delicious. Came with lobster mac n cheese and asparagus, grilled, that were also very good. We chose to eat outside, and it was very comfortable, very relaxed, and great service from Paul. Will definitely come here again on our next visit to Hilton Head.

“Wonderful Restaurant”
Reviewed October 10, 2012

This is a great restaurant with great service and wonderful selection of meals. They also have a large selection of wine. Consider dining between 5 and 5:45 as they have an offer of soup or salad, several different entrees, and a glass of wine for $19.95. The wine was very good, the meal my wife and I selected were excellent.

“Uncooked seafood.”
Reviewed October 9, 2012

We both ordered the salmon, and in neither case was the fish cooked properly. When we mentioned it to the waiter, he said that was the new style for cooking salmon, and that most people preferred it that way. Say what? Most people prefer raw fish??? Anyway we told him we weren't among those people, and sent it back to be done properly. Swear they stuck it in the microwave for a minute, and sent it back out. Would never, ever darken their door again. Too many good places to eat!!!

“Fair. Not great for the money.”
Reviewed October 7, 2012 via mobile

We had the early diners menu which was extensive. Service was great until the full fare diners game in.

Food was fair. Was expecting so much more from the black bean soup. Tomato basil soup was excellent. Kids Beef medallions was tough and charred. (For a $14 kids meal I would have expected more). Ribs were good. Braised short ribs were ok. Too much mushroom flavor. Not well balanced. But well cooked.

Overall...not worth the money. Even at the early diners rate.

“Pleasant if a bit absentminded”
Reviewed October 7, 2012

Both fish dishes were excellent but the beets were missing from the beet salad, and the bread pudding dessert was tough, almost leathery, and really lacking in the usual eggy custard. Perhaps their A-team doesn't work Sundays.
