Not sure why this sites shows its "OPEN" today... had a really bad experience a while back, and Hugo got mad at me because his scallops smelled like amonia. I wanted to order something else, and I was polite. Hugo insisted there was nothing wrong with them, and insisted on bringing me another order. The second order came out, and... More

This place is smack dab in the middle of the island! Great staff and owners. Been around a long time. One huge plus: the wait staff will not hesitate to tell you whether or not a dish is really good, or the special is worth it! Hugo's seems to win awards annually at various food festivals, and very well-deserved. Don't... More

Alas, Hugo's has closed. Always a favorite, the owner has retired. There will be a new restaurant located there sometime in February with some of the same staff. Menu may be very similar since the chef is staying.

Hugo's has closed and Pisces is opening in this location. I read an article in the Paper while in HHI last week. We already had our visit to Hugo's planned. We will miss Hugo's.

We have visited Hugo's several times and especially during restaurant week when they had specials. This restaurant no longer is in operation. There is a now another currently boarded up business in the location.

Hogo's has been on Hilton Head Island for many years now. Our family tries to eat there whenever we visit Hilton Head. The host, Hugo, is friendly and knows his stuff, though he no longer works in his kitchen. Oh yes, the food is excellent!

Whenever I see crab cakes on the menu, I have to try them. The low country crab cakes were not good at all for this blue crab lover from Virginia. I'll know better not to order them next time. We visited Hugo's in time for the Early Bird Specials, and my husband enjoyed the prime rib special for the evening.
