Old Fort Pub Ratings and Reviews

Great. Experience! Our server, Jessica, was great! The view from the dining room was great! The special 3 for $33 off the regular menu at any time (not just at early dining hours!) was great! Food was great! Atmosphere was great! We plan to dine here again before we leave the island--twice in six days! What more can we say!

As always, we had a great dinner. Choices are excellent and always something for everyone. This is one of our favorite spots for ourselves, but we always take our out of town guests to this restaurant. Never disappointed !

It is the only place we go for Thanksgiving and Christmas dinner. We have been going there about 6 years, at least. Having transportation to and from allows both of us to enjoy the entire meals, drinks, wine, after dinner special drinks, in complete enjoyment.

We always enjoy Old Fort Pub and this Thanksgiving was no exception. My husband had the ravioli appetizer while I opted for butternut squash soup. We both had the traditional turkey dinner which was wonderful. I had pumpkin pie which was very good and very large (I left half of it) and my husband the people an pie. Our waiter was very professional and courteous. We will continue to dine here when we are in Bluffton!

Went to Old Fort Pub for Thanksgiving dinner. In addition to their regular menu, they had a turkey dinner. We each started with a different soup and then had the turkey dinner. The turkey was moist and everything was delicious. It was every bit as good as a home cooked turkey dinner but with none of the work.

Fine dining at its best. Low country dishes are my favourites....she crab soup, shellfish cakes and the key lime tart to finish off a fine meal. The salmon and filet of beef were also deliciuos. Food presentation is attractive.
The wine selection is reasonable.
A great spot for a special dinner in a traditional setting. Go early to catch the beautiful sunset.

Old Fort Pub was wonderful. We've been coming to the Hilton Head area for more than 20 years and this was our first visit here. The food was very good and beautifully presented. My wife loved her salmon and my duck was perfectly prepared. We realized late that we weren't given the bread that we saw on all other tables. Maybe it was indifferent service (we were a table for two while the room was primarily tables of four), or maybe just a simple oversight. If there was something to be disappointed with it would have been the time it took to be served our entrée, and the time after dinner before we were offered dessert or coffee. These were not significant because I know how busy the restaurant was. I might, though, decide to go back on a weekday night when service might be better. At any rate it will not keep me from going back.

OFP didn't disappoint. Had family visiting from out of town and wanted them to enjoy the sunset as well as the dining experience. I asked in my reservation for a window table and we were seated at one. The waiter was very accommodating and answered all our questions. Food was delicious and service excellent. Will be going back soon.

Amazing, wonderful, outstanding place!!!!
We've vacationed at HHI for over 20 years and we've made The Old Fort Pub a "must do" dining experience each year.
Our waitress (Thur 11/10 5pm sitting) was one of the best - helpful, friendly and tried her best to accommodate our social requests.
Don't pass this one !!!

We really enjoyed our evening and dinner at Old Fort. It has a rustic look on the outside, lovely intimate setting inside their dining room. Our table was near the window, so we had a beautiful setting. My husband had the trout with a bit of a Cajun topping. It was delicious! I ordered the pork chop with a chutney type sauce. Cooked to perfection, not dry. Wonderful!
We're visiting a few weeks after the hurricane, so the restaurants are not as busy as usual, which is nice. If you want a beautiful setting, water view and great food don't miss The Old Fort Pub!!! Loved it!

This was our second visit and we plan to visit again next year on our vacation. The service is great and the food even better. Everyone enjoyed their meals. And especially the free desserts and chocolate truffles. Make sure you try to be there for the sunset. It was beautiful and we got some really good pictures.
We'll be back again next October.

We had a pretty good experience except for the temperature of a couple of the meals. This was corrected immediately with new meals and with a gift certificate towards a future visit. The food itself was excellent, unusual tasty garnishes, and very nicely presented. A lovely evening. We will return again as we have many times over the years.

First time visit. Really fun place to go. Lots of energy and live music. Sat at the bar and had some great drinks. We had a few small plates and their seafood chowder. All were excellent. I was disappointed in my meal which took too long and came out warm. If not for that, I would rate the food 4stars. Would recommend and would return.

What's a girl going to chose when only a few days in a city.. Did a google search for best of Hilton Head and Old Fort Pub came up. It was worth the drive ... and worth getting lost .... and worth the time trying to find the location. It was simply worth everything. Dinner for two was more than ample. The onion soup was really, really good. The filet mignon and side of asparagus was good - actaully fantastic - but over the top was the swordfish over steel tip grits ? and vegetables. I am not a big fish eater - but that meal was a winner. You could tell from the staff and the menu why this is worth a visit when in Hilton Head. Dinner for two was $135 + tip. No dessert. Included drinks. For us - $150 is about average for a meal in a great restaurant, so for us this dinner was an average price. I would return to HH just to go to Old Forte Pub again. My guest thought the decor was old and out dated but for me, I thought it was appropriate and what it should be for this long established restaurant. I was extremely comfortable and would dine there with guests or alone - and feel extremely comfortable and welcomed.

We picked the Old Fort Pub for a special occasion, o:ur 33rd Anniversary. We made reservations for 7:15, and had reserved a table by the window for the view.
We were not seated until 8:00 pm, a 45 minute delay despite a reservation, (largely because earlier walk-ins were seated), and by the time we got to our window view it was dark, no view.
Food and waitress were good.
Overall experience was VERY disappointing...and completely avoidable.
We won't be back.

The name is a bit misleading: this is a very nice place- hardly a 'pub'- glad I had dressed correctly after reading Open Table about 'casual dressy'. We did start out on the patio but it was too buggy. We were given a table upstairs which was quite nice. The service and food was so great. The menu offers many choices and probably won't go wrong with any of them. This is not really a dining place for children in the evenings- more for adults who enjoy good food, a great scenic view, and lovely food and service.

This restaurant was recommended by a local and we were anxious to try it. It not only met, it exceeded our expectations. Friendly , efficient staff and management, outstanding atmosphere, fantastic service and wonderful food!! Looking forward to a return visit.

A recent visit to the Old Fort Pub certainly surpassed all our expectations. We enjoyed a beautiful evening on the deck and we were pleasantly surprised by a guitar player playing on the deck. The ambiance of the evening wasn't finished with a waterfront sunset with beautiful music in the background...but rather enhanced by outstanding service and delicious food. A few of us ordered the baked stuffed flounder and it was prepared to perfection. We can't wait to return to order it again. Our server, Atef, never let a glass run dry! Kudos to the Old Fort Pub for giving us a truly memorable dining experience.

My husband and I love going to this restaurant every time we are in Hilton Head. The view is outstanding, especially at sunset, and the service is impeccable. Food is good too. We would highly recommend this restaurant to family and friends.

I felt that our choice for our 60th anniversary was "on the mark". However, I was disappointed because the arrangements for flowers for my table did not materialize. Further, the young woman server was not as attentive as I would have expected.
