Old Fort Pub Ratings and Reviews
Very disappointed - the ambiance was great but the service and food left a lot to be desired.
After waiting an absorbident amount of time for our entree it was served at room temperature.
The manager tried to make it up to us by offering a free desert, but at the price you pay for a
meal there you should get better service and hot food.
Old Fort Pub is one of our favorite all time restaurants. We have been coming here for over 30 years, experiencing its evolution from a simple, local porch to a first rate restaurant. The place has everything- historic setting, gorgeous Intracoastal Waterway views, excellent food and service, and outdoor options. The she-crab soup is unbelievably delicious, a specialty. Wonderful, creative, but not overly fancy main dishes, and fabulous desserts, especially the pecan pie. Definitely special.
What an amazing venue. One of the best places on the island. Menu is overpriced especially for the overcooked stuffed flounder I ordered. Waiter was great otherwise.. even agreed with the over cooked fish but didn't do anything about it on my bill. I can't believe how empty this place was. Been coming to HHI for 30 years and never noticed olde fort. If they reduced menus to $15-30 rather than $25-40 this place would be one of the island bests. We will be back for the venue and view
One of the loveliest dinner experiences in some time........ Living in Charleston and dIning out often makes that a strong statement! The water view makes OFP exceptional the moment you step in the dining room and are seated. The service and the food take the experience to the next level. The ambience is very comfortable and unpretencious, the wait staff couldn't be more accommodating and the menu plus daily additions make your decision difficult. I have dined at OFP for years and this was my very best experience there. Highly recommended to locals and visitors alike. Precious and inviting small bar area.
I've been coming to Hilton Head in the summer for 30 years and The Old Fort Pub has always been a standard for fine dining. We took some friends and they were very impressed. If you want to have white table cloths and above average service with really good food, this is the place. It is a step (or two) above the other restaurants on the island. And the view of the marsh is second to none!
Old Fort Pub is a the perfect place to enjoy a relaxing meal while on HHI. It has an amazing view of dolphins and sunsets with a quaint atmosphere! The food is superb with fresh ingredients and unique combinations.
An extensive wine list is also provided. This is where we chose to celebrate our 15th wedding anniversary with our sons, it was perfection! They even toasted us with champagne.
Rude waiter ruined the experience! We have been many times over the years and the waiter has made us think about ever going again. Spoke to manager at Old Fort Pub a week after our visit. Said he would talk to supervisor and call back and never did. Disgusted by service during meal and after.
We went for a birthday celebration. We were late for our reservation due to the extreme traffic on HWY 278. Saturday is the turn over day for the condo vacationers on Hilton Head and the traffic can be horrific.
Wait staff was wonderful, food excellent, view gorgeous. We will be back for other special occasions as well as every day dining.
Service and the view were excellent. Food was inconsistently seasoned. The she crab soup was incredibly average, very little discernable crab and just ok flavor. The Caesar salad was good. The shellfish cake was the best item of the night, however, the creamy stone ground grits fell flat and were more of a lumpy gelatinous bland heap. The beef tenderloin was cooked properly and had a very good onion jam, the accompanying potatoes needed salt and some butter and or cream badly. They key lime tart was very good. Overall an ok meal in a nice setting with great service.
The best part of the restaurant was probably the view. This place is great if you're looking for the old time supper club. We were probably some of the only people there that were under the age of 60. There is definitely an old school vibe and menu to this place. As a young couple this wasn't really for us. The food was ok, the serivice was fine. Definitely overcharged for what we got and the quality of food. If you're retired and are wanting a nice quiet evening this is a fine place for you.
Such an outstanding meal in a beautiful location! We ate here years ago, but had forgotten about what a gem this place it. We had a lovely Father's Day groundhog that went beyond your typical "fancy eggs and pancakes" meal. I look forward to eating here when we return to Hilton Head next year.
We've only been for brunch twice, once meeting another couple & once just us two for Father's Day. Both times the service was superb, food and drink delish and atmosphere/view quite nice. Beside the restaurant is a historic fort area you can walk to surrender a few of the extra scrumptious calories just consumed.
This is my husband's favorite meal! Every year he has to have the seafood bouillabaisse.. we celebrated his birthday and fathers day meal here. The staff are very friendly and accommodating to my daughter with nut allergies. They made sure both my children were taken care of...that is important.
We have dined here before and enjoyed our dinner. I was a bit surprised by some negative reviews, but found them totally baseless. Our meals (we both had the Cobia special) were outstanding. The service was friendly and timely, attentive without being overbearing. In my opinion, Old Fort Pub remains one of the finest dining venues on Hilton Head
