Had grilled octopus appetizer and game hen entree and both were excellent. Our server was very personable and attentive. Very nice atmosphere, lots of choices on the menu and good wine list. Will definitely go back when in Hilton Head.

Hmmm, can't say I'd recommend this place at this point. The atmosphere was nice, we enjoyed the cozy feel. Our server was fantastic and very attentive. Actually, we had 3 or 4 people check on us throughout dinner, so that was great. The food, however, was average at best. The escargot appetizer had great presentation, but lacked flavor. In fact, if I hadn't seen them, I wouldn't have known it was an escargot dish. Kudos on the Caesar salad, that was fresh and delicious. Most disappointing was the fish and chips dinner. I'm pretty sure the "chips" were leftover french fries that had been re-fried. Brown inside, odd texture, odd exterior color(s). At any rate, the place is not horrible, however, for what we paid, there are sooooo many other great restaurants to eat at. Maybe with some menu tweaking???

As always awesome food, drinks and service. We always eat at Darren Clark’s when we are in town. It’s our go to for the best steak on the island.

We had one of the best meals we have ever had. The restaurant is pricey but very worth it. We had the beef filet and the lamb chomps. both were cooked perfectly and so flavorful. The accompaniments were perfect. And the bread pudding for dessert was outstanding. We think this is absolutely the best food on HHI. And to top it off the service was outstanding. Michael G was attentive and helpful. We will definitely always ask for him. In case you are wondering, we recommend you give this restaurant a try. We recommend you don't sit near the bar as it tends to be a bit noisy in that area.

Had a wonderful evening out with my wife. The food was fresh and tasted great. The atmosphere was warm and inviting.

I met a local at the beach today who recommended this place for a foodie like me. I was impressed!

If you are looking for a great night out this place is worth the stop.

I highly recommend the mussels!
