Description: Old Fort Pub is a charming restaurant with one of the best views on Hilton Head Island. Perched on the banks of the Intra-coastal Waterway, it showcases unrivaled nightly sunsets and a rich history. So named for the adjacent Civil War shore battery, Fort Mitchel, the restaurant’s foyer is decorated with historic photos depicting the “War of Northern Aggression". Previously featured on The Food Network and in other notable publications, the Old Fort Pub has become a tradition for over 35 years. Guests enjoy Chef Keith Josefiak’s “New Southern” favorites inspired with influences from around the globe. An excellent choice for a celebrating a birthday, holiday or a romantic evening.

“A delight to the palate and the eyes!”
Reviewed July 30, 2013

The 'Old Fort Pub' was truly a pleasure had. It is not 'island touristy' by any means. The grounds do offer a bit of 1850's maritime military history that my 9 year-old son thoroughly enjoyed. Nevertheless, the 'Pub' is a fine restaurant...white table cloth fine, inside. More resort casual, patio seating outside. We reserved a seating time to coincide with the splendor of the sun setting beyond the waterway. We were not disappointed. Note to self: bring camera. The food was just as remarkable, even from the child's menu. The She Crab soup is a must! Every aspect of the meal was pleasing, including the very cordial staff. As two adults and one child we exceeded $120.00, but hey, you can't put a price on cherished moments and memories! Enjoy!

P.S. It's tucked away in a gated community and a little challenging to find so let the GPS lead the way.

“Vacation”
Reviewed July 30, 2013

A beautiful view of the water. We asked for a table by the window.
The service was excellent and the food was very well done. This is a great place for a special occasion.

“A Steep Price for a Magnificent View”
Reviewed July 28, 2013

Have dined here through the years and sometimes it has been excellent and other times not, as most recently. One thing that doesn't change is the ambiance and the most magnificent creek view and sunset in Hilton Head Island.

“A wonderful splurge!”
Reviewed July 26, 2013

My husband made reservations for us to go on my birthday. It was a wonderful splurge. The views of the water, sunsets, and trees are amazing. The food was out of this world. They start the evening with some complimentary salmon tarts, then fresh bread with herb butter. The she crab soup and salad with herb ranch dressing was fresh and delicious. We ordered the trout special, filet, and the pork tenderloin which were all fantastic including the polenta and sweet potato tart. Then we ordered dessert. My girls got homemade ice cream which they loved, I had the key lime tart ( which I will fantasize about forever) and my husband got a chocolate torte. Then as if that wasn't enough they gave complimentary truffles. I can not say enough about this place. It was an amazing birthday dinner.

“Great view and great food”
Reviewed July 20, 2013

We walked in late and they were gracious and gave us a table. The fresh baked rolls were hot and tasty! We all ordered the flat iron steak and potatoes and they didn't disappoint! The steak and sauce were wonderful. We were waited on by Ken, a local, who was happy to share info on the island and places to go. What an attentive waiter and service was great.
