This is one of my favorite restaurants on the island. The food is exceptional and the location offers one of the best places to see a great sunset.

Our last visit was on the 17th of March. I would rate my meal ( pork chop ) in my top 5 ever Our waitress, Jennifer, was exceptional. Very attentive... More

My husband and I chose Old Fort Pub to celebrate a milestone birthday. We could not have been more delighted. As we entered, we were struck by the incredible view thru the large picture windows of the sun setting over the water. We were lucky enough to be seated at a table where we both could enjoy nature's drama. Our... More

The Old Fort Pub was the last on the list of restaurants to visit during our trip to Hilton Head. Our vacation thus far had been filled with mediocre restaurants with bland and poorly prepared food despite top ratings on Trip Advisor. We were disappointed with the trip and not expecting much. We were greeted by a very pleasant hostess... More

Our Party Was Looking To A Most Enjoyable Experience At The Old Fort Pub!! Good Lord Were We Disappointed!!!! The Food,Service & Atmosphere What A Let Down!! The Restaurant Interior Was Fine!! The Waiters Were Ok At Best. Hard To Understand. It Seems They Were Somewhat Deceptive When Explaining The Menu. The Entree Came Alone With Charges For Each Side!!... More

We went here for our friend's birthday celebration. The restaurant overlooks the water (not the ocean but the river) and has a beautiful view. Perfect time would be around 6:30 or so to be there for the sunset. Food was great as well as the service. We had the wild local shrimp, filet mignon, and prime pork rib chop. All... More

Jennifer, and the entire staff were amazing! The dinner was a masterpiece, and the service totally professional! The complimentary champagne toast, and dessert served with a Happy Anniversary banner were the perfect complements to a perfect dining experience. We, all four of us, will certainly highly recommend Old Port Pub to all of our friends. Thank you for making our... More

While visiting friends on Hilton Head they took us to the Old Fort Pub for dinner. Had a drink in the bar while waiting for our table. The bartender was very friendly and efficient. (Being a former bartender I notice those things). Everyone was very happy with our experience. We all had the 3 for $33 deal. An appetizer, salad,... More

looking for that beautiful view - the hostess placed us in front of a tree that blocked the sun. let me not kid you folks - we are locals. This is our special occasion place and it is not the same as in the past. We went early to beat any crowds - but it didn't even look like people... More

On a recent visit to the Old Fort Pub on Hilton Head Island the good food and service was offset by the unannounced practice of adding a 20% tip to the bill. We were there for their special three courses for 33 dollars but when the bill came the added tip was on, not the 33 dollars, but on the... More
