My husband and I visited this restaurant after we purchased a new car. We were looking for a quiet venue with good food. Since it was local, we did not have to travel far to enjoy a new place. That being said, we were pleased with the service and the selections of fish on the menu. Though it was pricey;... More

Went early so we could have a choice of early specials or regular; early included a glass of wine, later one included dessert. Staff was friendly and helpful. I was able to order Gluten-Free free and it was delicious . A situation arose that I needed some extra attention and help and they were great. Server and manager checked on... More

We took advantage of the early bird special between 5 and 5.45 offered each day. We were made very welcome and service was excellent. We enjoyed a glass of wine then our server took our order. We had the Caesar salad which was very fresh with a nice dressing. Salmon was cooked to perfection and served with mashed potato and... More

Red Fish offered a 4 course dinner at only $45.00 per person. We choose prime rib. A+ atmosphere, service, food was fantastic. Our compliments to the chef and entire staff.

I would have been happy having every meal here during our stay on Hilton Head. Went twice, and none of the other places we tried could hold a candle to it. Outstanding and friendly service, delicious food, and a great value. The Asian lettuce wraps are not to be missed!

Tis a grand day to experience Hilton Head today. Several years ago during a stay at Marriott’s Grande Ocean villas, the concierge insisted that we experience Red Fish. And Red Fish has been a Hilton Head Island since that first visit. Red Fish is an upscale, white table cloth restaurant, and business suits mix with shorts and polos. Expect an... More

We were looking for good fish while visiting the coast. Red Fish sounded like where we might find some. The selection was a little limited. What we had was good and the deserts were good.

Good value for the early bird. Service was OK and food was good. It was a special occasion for a birthday but no acknowledgement. Excellent wine list and would consider again.

The Red Fish has a most spacious patio with complete service and customers are not without any wish. Inside there is a small bar in sort of the lunch area with plenty of bottles of wine all around, great wine list especially offerings by the glass. Quality = price is their game and is fulfilled. The service is spectacular with... More

We come to Hilton Head often and each visit MUST include a dinner at Red Fish. We've never had a bad meal here. The service is fast and friendly and the food is presented beautifully. This is the first time I've tried something other than fish/seafood. The southern fried chicken was really yummy and the special grits underneath were really... More
