There are many seafood restaurants on the Island. Very few are chef owned and operated. This one is! It makes a difference when the owner is the chef Fish was cooked perfectly . different sauces were added to each of the menu items . Smaller...than most restaurants it is ideal for mature and romantic couplesMore

Tried this restaurant for the first time and glad we did. Small but not crowded seating. The house and Caesar salads were delicious. I had the red snapper piccata which was very good and my husband raved about his filet mignon with gorgonzola butter sauce....The vegetables here are not an afterthought - they are cooked to perfection and very tasty. We did not have room for dessert. We will be back.More

First, our thanks to the restaurant for accommodating us for a same-day reservation; we called in the early afternoon and they were able to work us in. It was raining so outside dining was not possible. The restaurant is cozy and there were a couple...of large parties but seating was such that everything felt spaced out enough to be safe. We both had seafood dishes--sea bass for one, haddock the other. The kitchen kindly accommodated a request to avoid some seasonings, and the fish was cooked perfectly. Some other reviews have mentioned the fresh vegetables and there was an unusual variety of those, not just one side or one medley, but 5 different vegetables in different quantities, colors and flavors across the plate. Plus, a delicious small salad is included with the meal. We brought back servings of the peach-blueberry cobbler (minus ice cream) to enjoy later. Of note is that there were several more dishes we could equally have ordered, for an entirely different meal: soups, appetizers, other seafood dishes. We look forward to dining there again!More

Social distancing and masks in place. Servers were so nice and very conscientious, offering suggestions for my gluten-free diet. Dinner was delicious.

Wife and I dined at the Sea Grass Grille on April 1, 2021. The waitress service was attentive and courteous. When ordering, I alerted the waitress to a food allergy (specifically cheese.). My meal (pork chop) was served with an item that contained cheese. It...was like pulling teeth to request the waitress to remove the cheese and serve the rest of my meal on a clean plate. Subsequently, we ordered a pice of key lime pie for dessert. The pie (with Oreo crust) was quite tart and stale with a bad aftertaste. Not the most pleasant of meals on our special occasion.More

I have yet to have a bad meal or choice at Sea Grass. This trip we have eaten there twice and both dinners were perfect. I had grouper piccata which was delicious and the Brie and pesto tomatoes were terrific. My husband loved his meal...too. Wonderful service and socially distanced. A pleasure.More

I am a local on Hilton Head and have eaten here many times. Tonight was over the top! Fresh triggerfish cooked to perfection with an unbelievable side of pea and asparagus tortellini and fresh veggies. The restaurant has been updated and the staff was excellent....Chef Chad is one of the best in the business. Highly recommend!More

The most tender meat I have eaten. We had the herb crusted rack of lamb. I did not care for the crust, but the meat was to die for. The mushroom turnover was good not what i expected. The appetizer shrimp and pasta my husband...said "was different and he enjoyed it." We did curbside because of the rise in COVID cases. My husband recommends changing the takeout plates due to bending and liquid soaking through. We enjoyed our meal and thankyou.More

We went to dinner here last night and the food and service was outstanding. Our waitress, Kathy was very accommodating and asked the chef to go light on a creamy dish I wanted to try. It was amazing. I would suggest the shrimp and pasta...appetizer. Everything we had was delicious. We’ll be back!More

We had a party of 6 and everyone raved about their meal. Several said best oyster stew. Tomato pie was good but reminded me of pizza. Mahi was delicious especially with mango sauce. Then baked Alaska for dessert. Doesn’t get any better. Plenty of outdoor...seating. Excellent service. Want to go again just to try another entree.More
