Old Fort Pub Ratings and Reviews

Although we had a reservation we had to wait almost 20 minutes for our table. The restaurant was very busy and there wasn't even room at the bar to wait. This was our 4th visit and this had never happened before. It was my birthday, so my husband wasn't pleased. He wasn't happy with the menu, because most entrees included something he didn't care for. Again, this was different from our past experience. We will try again, but I'm glad this wasn't our first time or we might not be interested in returning.

We have gone to Old Fort Pub many times and it was always very good. This time the food and scenic views were very good, unfortunately the service left a lot to be desired. The waiter acted like he was too busy to answer questions and take our order. I asked three times for more rolls before they finally arrived. My iced tea glass, sat there empty, through most of the meal. As I was finishing my entree someone finally asked if I wanted more tea. I expect much better service from a special occasion restaurant.

Order the she crab soup it was the best I ever had. We went on Feb 14th so the service was a little slow...waited for a drink very long,and for the food...beautiful atmosphere food was very fancy but not as delicious as it looked, a little cold too...sit at the bar and order soup.

Old Ft. Pub used to be great. It's a great location with beautiful sunsets. But the building has not been kept up, and the food is no longer good. I've heard the family wants to retire and sell, but this will be tough, as they've lost the most important factor: good food. Sad to see this Hilton Head institution lose it's way. The fix? Put money into the building and get a new chef.

This dine was for Valentine's Day, & we weren't disappointed. This white tablecloth restaurant overlooking Skull Creek offers excellent menu choice, food, service & view. This restaurant has been a Hilton Head Island staple since 1973 so the decor is somewhat dated. It probably wouldn't be a good choice for millennials unless they appreciate the above mentioned qualities over a chic decor.

Spectacular setting especially if your reservation time encompasses sunset. Don't be misled by the name. This is not a pub but a fine dining establishment. Casual attire is acceptable. You enter a gated community, Hilton Head Plantation, to reach the OFP. Nice menu and good value. Exceptional service starting with the greeting at arrival and a tour of the patio as we left. OFP's patio would be a fine location for cocktails at sunset. Our server was outstanding. She kept my Prosecco split chilled. I had the day's special - flat iron steak and my spouse had grouper. The steak was good but not outstanding and the grouper excellent. The salads and sides very good. We had wine by the glass and there were many good wines to consider. No issues with noise. Can easily converse.

We really enjoyed the views of the Old Fort Pub, which is why we chose to go. the hostess was great and suggested we go up to the third floor for best view. It was a beautiful evening and we really enjoyed that. We did not get to sit by the window and that is all that would have made the evening better. Food was delicious. Waiter was excellent. We were puzzled that it was a pub, but had no draft beer. Wine list is extensive though!

One of the finest restaurants I have visited. Great atmosphere for a romantic quiet dinner.
Excellent service. All the courses- soup, salad, appetizer, main course and desserts were outstanding. A memorable evening.

We've been to the Old Fort Pub numerous times in our annual trips to Hilton Head. We generally go for special occasions and when we want more elegant dining. We are never disappointed. Good variety in the menu, especially sea food. An excellent wine list - both by the glass and bottle. Our server this time was exceptionally nice and friendly and helped make our 48th wedding anniversary dinner even more special. Recommend highly.

Exceptional as always, the food, service and wonderful view and ambience are in my my top three of the Hilton Head area. The service is impeccable, very hard to find top rated service. Five star food. Excellent value.

Beautiful setting. Excellent service. Menu and presentations lacked creativity. I also prefer my entree to be served hotter. My petite filet was lukewarm and typified petite. Beet salad was very good. On the other hand, my pecan pie dessert portion was large. My dining companions felt their entrees were okay. The pork rib chop was a generous portion.

Old Fort Pub is something of a local landmark, but our recent visit was very disappointing. We arrived for our reservation, but had to wait 20 minutes to be seated; then we waited another 20 minutes before receiving a menu or any service at all. The advertised "3 for $33" menu was very misleading and included a 27% built-in service charge for service that was would not have merited even 15%. Disappointing evening all around. Not inclined to go back.

Mixed review. My wife and I have dined regularly at the Pub for ten years. Ambiance is always great. High point of the meal was the mushroom risotto which was excellent. The Old Fashioned and the Pear Martini were very good. We ordered a pork chop and a Carolina brook trout. Both meals came in bowl. Trout is a delicate fish and must be the star of the dish but the trout was surrounded by a brown broth in which were slices of sausage and various vegetables. The sausage component took the delicacy away from the trout. Not a good mixture. The crème broule was thin and contained pieces of cherry rather than being infused with a cherry taste. So good drinks, good risotto but not so good entrees. and dessert.

Short rib was huge and veggies around it all so tasteful and the sauce was excellent. Best food and presentation of any restaurant ever!! Thank you so much for "standing out" as the most exceptional dining experience in all of Hilton Head and beyond..

Repeat diners.. Shane our server was excellent.. the short ribs were a disappointment this evening... stringy.. dry... not enough sauce...the recommended wine not complex...have had this meal before and it was a+++...

We had a great dinner, my friend had the duck and loved it, I had the beef short ribs which was fall off the bone tender!
The server was exceptional. She was always around but didn't bother us. The view was outstanding, we had a window table with sun set view. At first the sun was too bright but they pulled down the shade. As soon as the sun was not as bright, they raised it so we could have a perfect view. Definitely recommend it and will go back!

Old Fort Pub just never fails to bring a smile to my face. From the friendly staff who stays with you from the moment you walk in until you finish to the wait staff, thanks Jennifer,. Our table wasn't quite ready and they walked us to a table in the bar to wait. Lovely atmosphere. Food was great and having their 3 for $33 menu was amazing. Will keep going back.

We were celebrating our wedding anniversary and we couldn't have chosen a more perfect restaurant. Our wait staff saw to our every need (Michelle, I think). Food was delicious and served in a timely sequence. We are anxious to return.

Consistently great dining experience in a relaxing atmosphere. The creative quality of the chef and the wonderful service staff make dining at Old Fort Pub a pleasure each and every time we go. Enjoy a cocktail at the bar prior to dinner and enjoy the sunset.

Had a late reservation for New Years Eve and waited at the bar for our table. After an hourlong wait they seated us at a table. We had a good time despite the wait. Good, service and food. Jerry the bartender is a pro.
