Dinner was very good but also very expensive! Short braised ribs were outstanding! My GF kids had meat/cheese plate (apples instead of crackers) and mashed potatoes (also delicious!) The only reason for the 4 star was because of dessert. Kids ordered chocolate fondue with only the fruit. It was delivered to the table with pound cake so I sent it back and asked to have it remade. It came back with just fruit and obvious cake crumbs. Asked the server if it was remade and he said the cake was taken off. I explained we can't have the cake crumbs on the plate. It was remade again. Guess we'll see soon enough if it affects us :/
Our family recently visited Hilton Head's Wise Guys and the whole experience was amazing. From the moment we walked in the door, we were treated wonderfully. From the wine listings to the delectable seafood and steak, the experience was wonderful. Everything was phenomenal from start to finish. Even with food allergies and food restrictions, the chef and staff never batted an eye. Our server and bartender, Julian, gave recommendations without issue and his suggestions were well liked by all in our party. He was great! The Mahi Mahi was delicious as were the steaks. The desserts could even be made GF! Super impressed!
Definitely Celiac friendly. My teenage daughter enjoyed the ceasar salad. She was very concerned when she saw croutons and had me ask for clarification. The staff was excellent on verifying. FYI the croutons are fried pullenta (sic). My daughter loved the salad.
I disagree with the other review about Wise Guys. I have eaten there 3 times in the last 5 months on my stays at HHI. Everytime the service was good as well as them double checking gluten free orders. This is mostly a steakhouse and I am very particular. Have yet to not find them accommodating if they can make something on the menu gluten free they will ask the chef. Good atmosphere and good wine list as well. Think there pricing is some of the best on the island. You can have appetizers to dessert all gluten free. I regularly travel between Manhattan Connecticut and Virginia. I regularly have this place in my top spots. As good as say Bistango in NYC. So give it a chance there are very few options in HHI try Mi. Towers if you want great Mexican.
Very disappointing! Last year I posted a glowing review for WiseGuys Restaurant. Sadly this year I must amend my previous review. When we arrived in Hilton Head we could not wait to return to what was our all time favorite restaurant. Unfortunately when we arrived we quickly found they had significantly paired down their gluten free menu, eliminating many of our favorites. Additionally we found the staff to lacking as well. While they still have a number of beautiful and tasty entrees, it is definitely not the stellar restaurant it was last year!!!
We were looking forward to getting a late night dinner since the kitchen is open until 12. We walked at 10:40, there was no one to seat us and we waited awkwardly for 5 min until a manager came and finally seated us. He didn't apologize for us waiting or anything. We then waited for 10 minutes for a waiter to come and no one came. During the time we were waiting the manager kept looking at us but didn't come over. We finally walked out, hungry.
This restaurant had one of the best gluten free menus I have ever seen. The atmosphere was great, and the food was outstanding and beautifully presented. I had the shrimp and grits, and my husband and I shared the house-made potato chips with Gouda dip. It was all very tasty! I will definitely be back!
