Intro

The Old Fort Pub is located on the banks of Skull Creek and offers a great view to go along with your meal. The restaurant gets its name from near by Civil War fortifications, which make a great pre- or post- dinner stroll. This is a super laid back restaurant that serves a variety of delicious food. Head in for brunch from 11:00am to 2:00pm and gorge yourself on eggs benedict or hang around for dinner and try their Sea Island Bouillabaisse- a massive plate of local shrimp, scallops, crawfish, mussels, roasted tomatoes, tasso ham, and collards. 

What Makes It Great

Everyone loves this place and it’s a great spot to walk in early for a cold local beer (the bar opens at 4:00 pm every day) and hang out with the locals. This is a pub after all, it just so happens to serve some high-end entrees. If you truly want the best experience, we recommend paddling the very creek that Old Fort Pub is situated upon and head to dinner just in time to catch the sunset.

Who is Going to Love It

If you’ve never witnessed the sun falling down behind Live Oaks along the banks of a tidal creek, it is truly a sight to behold. You’ll probably forget all about that black angus flat iron steak you just ordered... until you smell it from the kitchen in all its beefy goodness. Go here for a great evening with friends, family, cold beer and cocktails, and extremely good food.

Directions, Parking, & Regulations

The restaurant is open from 5:00 pm to 10 pm nightly, and 11:00am to 2:00 pm on Sundays for brunch. This establishment tends to get a little crowded during the summer months, as with most restaurants on Hilton Head. They accept reservations via phone as well as through Roundtable, so if you are dead set on steak and seafood but do not want to wait around for a while, get smart and book your reservations early.
