Our concierge at the Marriott made the reservation for us before we arrived. We hadn't been to Hilton Head since we moved to California twenty years ago so we didn't know much about the restaurant scene. What a wonderful discovery. We missed the sunset, but the view is still magnificent. The menu was so extraordinary. we discovered the 3 for... More

I have heard rave reviews about the Old Fort Pub. I was invited by a few friends to go here for Thanksgiving day dinner. The outside of the restaurant doesn't look that great but once inside the views are breath taking! We were sat next to this huge window that over looked Skull creek. The sunset was amazing! Most everyone... More

My husband and I had a lovely experience while dining for the first time at The Old Fort Pub. Warm and friendly while efficient and truly professional. I loved that they seemed to encourage "taking your time". The beet salad special was wonderful and the calamari appetizer more like an entree. The entree portions were also very generous. My husband... More

We were lured here by the prospect of the view, and their 3 course meal for $33 dollar (out of season) special. The ambiance here was relaxed, upscale, and comfortable, and the water view of Skull Creek spectacular. Service was very good, and they have quite a large wine list. My Pumpkin and Toasted Barley Risotto appetiser with wild mushrooms... More

Nice brunch package for a really good price, service was ok, make sure that they are not waiting for your table (no rush). The view is fantastic !!!! My meal, the crepe, was just ok and won't recommend it.

Fantastic Food and Service, Great atmosphere,Great View! A must do at HH! The 3 for 33 special adds to Value. I'm not sure when this available, 3 courses for $33! Even at the standard prices this is quite worth the price.

The dinner there was as good as it gets...Great service by the entire staff...there's no Pub here but instead, a great old genre, white tablecloth restaurant, staffed by very well trained male waiters. The cocktails and wines were very good, and the bread which isn't normally one of the standout items of the evening was here. Lastly, so as not... More

In order to enter Old Fort Pub, one must pass through a guard gate and enter a plantation; it is driving through the plantations that one views the debris of the hurricane. Uprooted remains of many trees await pick up. Old Fort Pub is neither a Fort, nor a Pub; it is one of our very favorite fine dining experience... More

This was our second dinner visit; we were pleasantly surprised by their "3 for $33" promotion - 3 courses for $33. We could choose any 3 items from their regular menu! The food was outstanding, service attentive in a warm, elegant setting. A "must visit" if you're at Hilton Head!
