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.

Been to old fort a few times. Always beautiful. Service is excellent. Food looks beautiful. She crab is the best in hilton head.. My salmon was a little over cooked but not bad enough to send back. We will come again.

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.

New Years Eve meal was horrible. We have been to Old Fort Pub many times and this was not the usual. Food was bad. Prices were high, which we usually have no problem with, but the food was so bad this time we felt ripped off. May not go backp

Outstanding. Our Server Jim Dungan fully represents the class elegance and wonderful ambiance of this Hilton Head classic. Extraordinary food with both tremendous seafood and meat selections as well as great vegetarian offerings

Old Fort Pub is our go-to place for Thanksgiving/Christmas. I believe this was our 6th year. It is nice to be recognized, especially by the serving staff. They are a special treat! Now that we have provided transportation, it gives us both a chance to enjoy the libations, particularly the after dinner holiday specials.

I had not looked at the menu online before dining there, and was pleasantly surprised at the offerings. The name may include the word "Pub", but the fare is not pub fare. Granted, if their menu consisted of traditional pub food, it would be delicious. Our party included a pescetarian and 3 carnivores, and there were fine choices for us all. The desserts are made on-site by a pastry chef, and were wonderful. The view is westward, and we caught the beautiful sunset as we were seated.

Service was great my wife had the salmon & substituted Risoto for grits everything done just right I had the Grouper special very good. Adequate wine list Desert was a little disappointing but could have been my choice as was limited. Server was always available & helpful

Christmas dinner for 3 of us - the people were so nice and accommodative for my 92-year-old mother who had a walker. The staff helped us in into a lovely table , appetizers, And salads were spectacular my Seafood Dish was great - my wife's and my mom's dinner was a little under par. My wife ordered short ribs and it was unexplained that horseradish was on the top. My wife consumed the horseradish thinking in the dark light it may have been potatoes it ruined her taste for the rest of the meal.
Overall I enjoyed the experience a few mishaps with the food the service was spectacular

Watch out for the slippery waiter being the most expensive bottle of wine when he was told others, he shows you the bottle and you expect it is one you told him...but no, it was almost double cost...and at the end he gave himself a big tip, maybe 20%. Not going back

Wonderful setting as afternoon light faded to evening. The cocktails were just right. The calamari was interesting but I've had better. A generous portion of short ribs in a delicious gravy. Nice dessert of poached pineapple in a riesling,vanilla,and ginger concoction. Really special. Good coffee and conversation. A great evening, we'll be back.

From the second we walked in we were greeted and directed to our table.
The room was wonderfully decorated for the holidays.
Our waiter was friendly and informative. He shared with us the specials which helped to pick out appropriate wines.
Food was excellent with a nice presentation.
I had the pork chop which was the most tender pork I have ever had.
I highly recommend this restaurant.

Delicious meal. We went for 5 pm to see the sunset. It was a beautiful view. Their special was 3 courses for $33. Service was great, and the food was wonderful. Would definitely return!

This was our second visit to Old Fort Pub in less than a week because of the excellent dining experience the first visit. Every part of the experience was as good as the first time-food,service, ambiance and value. The winter special of any 3-course meal for $33 any time is a great deal and Jennifer's attention to every service detail made both visits memorable.

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.
