Chef David's Roastfish and Cornbread Reviews
My first time on HHI in 18 years and this has been the best restaurant we've tried so far. The fresh catch menu offered striped bass, cod, wreck, cobia, and red snapper. Blackened striped bass +1

Get here early. You will still wait, (1 1/2 hrs from arrival to food). Food is 5 stars, but management is trying to put out of business.
by Lester D.
They don't have a liquor license and the service is extremely slow.
by Matthew W.
Well worth the wait. Order the gator app lightly blackened.
by Ashley M.
Worth the wait. The fish tacos are the tits.
by William B.
Great food, slow service, HUGE wine pours.
by Chris B.
Don't come here if you're in a hurry. There was a wait, despite the numerous vacant tables, and the service was very slow (although the waitress, Ella, was very pleasant). Food was great, though.

lightly blackened scallops with lots lemon squirted on top! and the ginormous sweet potato fries .. GOING AGAIN

They were out of several items when we went for lunch. If you aren't a seafood person, you might want to call ahead and make sure they aren't out of barbecue!
by Haley H.
Get there before 5 during the high season. Food is great and Chef David is awesome!
by Travis H.
This place is a must visit on HHI.

Great food and service
by Bill M.
Expect a wait. Food is worth it though.
by Annette S.
Has to be one of THE BEST places to eat on the island. Roasted whole flounder was amazing. Nothing else really compares. More than worth waiting. Get a drink & relax. Your taste buds will thank you.
by Brett B.
Get there before 6 or you'll wait a while, but for good reason because this is one of the best kept secrets on the island.
by Beth W.

by Ryan W.
Best menu on the island
by John O.
Great food & service. Try the shrimp bisque.
I am going to insist that you eat here. Why is there such a long wait? Because it is SOOOOOO worth it. The food is great. The atmosphere is better.Eat damn good Low Country, seasonal cuisine.
by Brandon R.
Fantastic. Foods was delicious. Highly recommended!

Get the blackened scallops. Pass on the sweet potato cornbread.
by Matt B.
Cornbread is to die for! Best I've ever had. Be sure to get it as one of your sides!
by Juliana T.
Vegans & Vegetarians, the Roasted Portabella sandwich is amazing. The Portabella app is equally delicious. If you're veg on HHI, this is the place to go!
by Tracy K.
You will have to wait. It will be worth it.
by Ross C.
A "45 minute wait" was more like an hour and a half but the food was great.
by Annette S.
I've been coming to HHI for 18 years and this is one of my favorite restaurants on the Island. Chef David (Former Sea Shack chef) is superb! You can't go wrong with the Port Royal Platter. A MUST TRY

Portions are terrific. Either come with an appetite or bring a friend!
by Susan K.
