Oysters are better than Hilton Head’s, Service is as good as any 5 star restaurant. I can’t wait for my next lunch at Fontaine’s. In my view among the very top of the pile for a quality meal

Food is very good, beer very cold, Service could be a bit better, but then, it could be better in many places! Specials on week-days are worth going for.

We've eaten here several times and the food never disappoints. I enjoy the oysters and grilled grouper and my wife enjoys fried shrimp and ceasar salad. Prices are VERY reasonable. Will continue to return.

The food was amazing. Bluepoint Oysters fresh and the Fried Catfish delicious. Lobster Roll is a must try. Juicy pieces. I am not a fan of Bloody Mary’s but these taste really good. Great atmosphere for family and friends. Will highly recommend you try it.

Stopped in on a cold, cold night. Good crowd, but not packed. Just my friend and I, so we sat at the bar. Glad we did. Rick our barkeep kept us entertained all night. He is personable, extremely knowledgeable about the food and beer choices,...More
