My husband and I were there for my birthday/our anniversary celebration. I asked for a table by the window with a good view of the water and we got it all......it was absolutely beautiful! Our waiter was great and the food amazing, a perfectly romantic evening.

Enjoyed dinner here on July 18. The restaurant was as beautiful as it was on our last visit 25 years ago. Our server as well as the bartender Jerry were both very personable. We ordered 2 salads and 2 entrees. Our salad never arrived but it all worked out as we were not able to finish our meals and eating the salad would have been too much. The food (pork loin and the shellcakes) were quite good and well presented. Will definately return.

This used to be a favorite spot for a special occasion with the food always reliably excellent. Was very disappointed this time my wife had fish and I had a $42 veal chop neither was good. My wife's fish was plopped on some mashed potatoes with the skin on it. My veal chop was tough in the knife was still. When you play this kind of money you expect more.

I've been to OFP on many occasions over the years. However, the Restaurant seems to have raised the bar to a new level as the food was exceptionally good on this visit. The She Crab soup was, as always, great. We also enjoyed the beat salad, mushroom soup etc. Our group of 7 were seated promptly per our reservation. Our server Dan was very attentive throughout the evening and made some excellent recommendations. Our diners enjoyed the Veal Chop special done to perfection, the flat iron steak was as good as it gets and the lamb chops were as always delicious.The Carolina Trout is also a menu highlight but we did not have it this time. For dessert the peach cobbler cake was good but not great however the creme brulee was as good as you will get anywhere. For a special HHI occasion enjoying beautiful scenery, there isn't a better restaurant you could find on the island or anywhere.

First visit and can't wait to return. Just a perfect evening from the view, our waiter Jim, atmosphere, and most importantly the food. The grouper and swordfish were excellent, the sides were delicious and the service outstanding. A relaxing, enjoyable evening for the foodie in you.

Well, I decided to take my family to what I thought would be a nice higher end dinner out with a scenic view. We were seated at a nice table with a scenic view but my teenage kids were fast to point out how "stuffy" the place felt to them. I told them just wait till the food comes. Sadly, the calamari appetizer was more like a squid soup with a weird taste. My wife's scallops were excellent as were my younger son's pork tenderloin. My older son and I chose the grouper which included some shrimp and scallops. Our dish overall was marginal in taste plus we were not fond of the presentation in a thick yellow sauce. The chocolate truffles at the end were a nice touch. After having dined in many good restaurants in the U.S. and Europe, I would surely say the place is for ultra foodies that like a very mature atmosphere...probably not the place for most families that visit Hilton Head. The widow's walk is cool and the view amazing. The remnants of the fort are interesting to see. Excellent service.

My wife and I were extremely pleased with our meal and service at the Old Fort Pub. And the Skull Creek view was very pretty as well. The food was excellently prepared and our server was very helpful in helping us decide what to order. This was our first visit to the Old Fort Pub but definitely not our last!

Great service and food. The menu was a fabulous blend of different tastes and the Joyce Farms chicken was fantastic. Not to mention the scenery and view are terrific. Definitely worth the visit, best restaurant on the island!!!

This used to be an excellent restaurant, unfortunately, things seem to have changed. Service was extremely slow and they were out of all of the entrées we were interested in including scallops, swordfish and the seafood special. One of my friends had the calamari which tasted off. The trout was crispy and well prepared, however it was nearly an hour from the time we arrive to when we were served .
I have eaten at TOFP several times with varying results though generally good. We had a 7:15 reservation and had a pleasant start to the meal. The basil martini was outstanding and the wine list was good, not great. I was looking forward to fresh fish for the evening and had the swordfish selected in advance if the catch of the day didn't appeal to me. The waiter promptly notified us that they had only four servings of the catch (cobia which is my favorite fish) and they were gone and they were also out of the swordfish...at 7:15. I ended up with a grossly oversalted pork dish and left quite disappointed.
We have loved this restaurant for more than 15 years, so we hope we just hit an off night. Food was mediocre. Service was spotty. We had a new waitress (first night) who was charming and competent. But after appetizers we had to request some missing silverware from the busboy when the mains were delivered. Our wine glasses were cleared before the wine was emptied and we had to request more.
