We are not new to Hilton Head Island but somehow Michael Anthony's had escaped our return for many years. This will not happen again! We were there for a beautiful Valentine's Day dinner and were more than a little surprised at how lovely this restaurant is in every way. Our server was Kat and was fantastic, the ambience was lovely,... More

My husband and I had dinner at Michael Anthony's this past Saturday evening. Although Shrimp Parmigiana is not on the menu, the staff did not hesitate to cook this meal for me. It was the best I have ever had. Simply Amazing! The appetizers and dinner were served promptly. The staff was very cordial. We will return on our next... More

It was good and I don't have anything bad to say. But it was not great. Food was Italian but not exceptional just good solid food. Service was quite good but not exceptional.So overall an OK place to go if you can't get into something better which was our dilemma

Atmosphere fairly upscale. We ate in what looked like their little store. Quite unusual. We all, six of us, enjoyed our meals. The waiter almost too much. Somewhat aggressive, too friendly..

this is one of the best restaurants in hilton head. the menu is largely Italian but done in a way that it doesn't seem Italian...sort of with a continental flair. the restaurant itself is upscale but not intimidating. (I wore jeans and no one cared.) the wait staff was A1. our waitress did a great wine pairing for my meal.

We visited this restaurant during their 15 year anniversary with their favorite menu choices over the last 15 years that were priced at $15. They didn't skimp on portion size and the food was delicious as always. This is my all time favorite restaurant on Hilton Head and trust me, there are many wonderful choices. I went back the next...

Obviously the food is what most of us are looking to be outstanding and this restaurant will not let you down. In addition to a wonderful selection of fresh cuisine the atmosphere and service make it "top notch". I dare say you won't find a better combination of everything completed to perfection than here.

We started with the calamari sauteed with white wine which was a pleasant surprise. Our server Elijah Walters took his time to explain the wine selection and made a very good recommendation. This was our first time and will not be the last. Keep up the good work.

Thank Richard C
