Everything we ordered was fantastic. Our server Kat was awesome. She knew the specials and truly seemed to understand the preparation,,not just memorizing a list of ingredients. This was our first visit and we will be back next time in Hilton Head.

Wonderful dinner here last evening. Perfect décor, great food, and excellent service. We look forward to returning here soon. Our server was Finnie and he was outstanding. We have always enjoyed this restaurant, and believe it should be the number 1 restaurant on the island.

My daughter, who lived in Italy, wanted to go to an Italian restaurant. The concierge suggested Michael Anthony's​. Our waiter, Jay was superb! Our food was exceptional and the suggestions were spot on. Make sure you put this on your list for that special dinner.
