The service is exceptional. The wait staff and bartenders are extremely pleasant and accommodating. The had live music, which was wonderful, people could dance but it was not intrusive , it was easy to have a nice conversation with family and friends, enjoy a dance or just sit back and chill to the music, the incredible water view, and have a great meal and wonderful cocktails! P.S. Margarita's served in free signature cups! I brought a few home and I love them, they remind me of that special place, San Miguel's is a "Must Do", not to be missed Hilton Head restaurant. They also have seating inside and I noticed they had large tables inside and out to accommodate large families or groups. We sat at one of the tables outside for two, lovely, fun place!!! We will surely return!

Great food, great music, and great service! The food was so fresh and the flavors were a unique blend of Mexican and southwestern cuisine. Great twists on classic dishes! We will definitely be back again and again!

Best guacamole this gringo has samples in 100 miles. Nachos (that come with it) made fresh, are a must order. Food is awesome, Live music in the courtyards, and by all means order the pitcher of margarita's. Open can policy in the marina, whatever you can't finish in the restaurant, you take with you into the surrounding shop/store area. A must for any man who's better half likes to shop!

Best margaritas on the Island, great Mexican food as well. San Miguel Nachos & the Fish Tacos are our favorites. Eating at the outside bar with live entertainment is a must.

We sat inside because we wanted air conditioning! We were right by the windows so it was entertaining to people watch and see the guitar player outside. Chips and salsa were delivered practically before we could sit down. The salsa tasted great and appeared to be made fresh. We also ordered guacamole which was super. I really enjoyed the fried flour chips that accompanied the guac. Charlie was great explaining dishes and recommending some. He said the chimis were good and so I decided on a combo plate that had the ground beef chimis with cheese sauce. It was fabulous. My dinner partner ordered the mushroom quesadillas. She said they were delicious too. We took a walk after dinner on the docks. This is a beautiful setting for dinner and drinks. The only odd thing was finding it. The parking lot looks like it is at the end of an alley. Don't give up. It is worth the search!
