Old Fort Pub Ratings and Reviews

Another outstanding Brunch. Duck Patii to start with and then Eggs Benedict. The fruit: strawberries, pineapple and orange slices were excellent. The brown potatoes needed to be a slightly warmer, was the only slip up with the meal. Shared a portion of pecan pie for desert. It was to die for especially with the fresh homemade whip cream.
Mouth is watering thinking about our next return to this great place......

We were on a kid-free getaway (yay!) from Charleston and the Old Fort Pub was absolutely delightful. We (or rather I since I planned the weekend and do men really care?) wanted something romantic with a great view. The Old Fort Pub hit all the marks- great ambiance, service, cocktails and food. We joke that we have turned into food snobs (but we really have) since moving to Charleston and Old Fort Pub definitely rates. We have been raving about dinner to anyone that will listen. I will literally go back to Hilton Head Island just for the steak at Old Fort Pub. It was cooked to perfection. I don't even like mashed potatoes but I would have licked the plate if it wasn't frowned upon since they were so stinking good. And I don't know what kind of witch craft goes on in that kitchen, but the sauce was pure magic. I'm sitting at my desk writing this review having dinner depression because nothing I whip up will even come close. Oh, and the bread with lavender butter? Like flower butter from heaven. Seriously, make a reservation, have a cocktail, enjoy the view and be ready to have your mind blown and put into a food coma from the delicious goodness that is Old Fort Pub.

Living on Hilton Head Island for 17 years, we have visited the Old Fort Pub many times, usually for special occasions. This visit was at, or very near, the top of the list. Food was outstanding, we had a table at the windows to enjoy a beautiful sunset and had a wonderful time.

Nice meal with beautiful views and excellent service. The price point and the quality/variety don't match up, but still nice quiet meal in a nice setting. The clientele is mostly locals that know the menu and the staff, so I wouldn't expect much change in either there

This is one of the best restaurants we've experienced on HHI. The food was excellent and carefully and skillfully prepared. Served with so much confidence there is no salt & pepper on the table! Chilled beet salad was most unusual and delicious. Hanger steak was excellent both in quality of meat and grilling. Shrimp and Grits was very good as well. Service was prompt, professional neither stiff nor overly friendly. Very efficient and nicely dressed wait staff. We will return and will recommend to friends.

We were celebrating the August birthdays of our husbands on this occasion. I called ahead to inquire about bringing a cake and the restaurant was very accommodating, including lighting the candles when the cake was brought to the table. Our server was always nearby, but not overbearing to make sure our needs were being met.
The food is outstanding! Fresh and flavorful from the she crab soup (you must try it) to the Boullibaisse (full of seafood and a wonderful Saffron broth). Two of the guests had the dinner special which was a flounder stuffed with crab but instead of the traditional way it is usually served the flounder was actually wrapped around the crab in the middle. The other guest had the lamb and said it was wonderful. The only negative complaint was about the wedge salad, which according to the person eating it, did not seem as fresh as other dishes, and required additional dressing.
The scenery is beautiful, especially if you get to catch a sunset. The tables are beautifully dressed with white cloths. We were on the porch and you could not have asked for a more romantic setting.
We will return to Old Fort Pub as we live close enough to drive there at least a few times a year. Thank you for a great evening.

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.

We are new to HHI less than 1 year, we started visiting the Old Fort Pub for Sunday Brunch, we now have tried the Pub for happy hour and dinner. We have not been disappointed on any visit, the food is always 1st class , but the Service and Views are superb.

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.
