It was Thanksgiving evening, so a bit of an odd time. However, the service was quite good, and the food a good as well. They did a good job under what can be difficult circumtances.
Great service, fantastic cocktails. The seafood pasta was fresh but very bland with very little seafood in it, and for $38 I expected more. Steak was great. It was almost too quiet...but nice ambiance. Very expensive, but we knew that going in.... other than the seafood pasta, everything was outstanding.
CQ’s was an excellent venue for our Thanksgiving meal. During these tough times of the COVID-19 virus it was a pleasure to feel safe with their protocols, while enjoying delicious food, great service, and a comfortable ambience. It could not have been better for us.
Always our go to during Thanksgiving!
We had a wonderful waiter, Christine along with all the other folks at CQs who once again made our experience fabulous. Thank you to everyone, your hard work shows.
Unfortunately was quite mediocre. We were just $59 steak and it was not edible. Our waitress and ask us our meals we said it was a bit chewy.... she said sorry I went on.
It’s unfortunate because we’ve always liked going there but it’s been seven years since we’ve been back to Hilton head.
First time in 20 years since I ate there. Everything was better than expected.
Had great safe outside seating. My lobster and pasta was terrific. My wife had the tuna and thought it was just ok.
Jerica, our server, is amazing! We had the best server, food and and overall good time at CQ's. Great place to dine. Highly recommend for any occasion.
The food was prepared to our liking and the server (Cody) was excellent. We celebrated our wedding anniversary at CQ's and were treated with great food and service. Will dine here whenever we are in Hilton Head.
The dining experience at CQ was awesome. The staff was professional and attentive to all of our needs. I would highly recommend!
Always a treat!
Cozy setting with exceptional waitress.
Delicious food from cocktails & soup to entrees
but a bit speedy to be in & out in one hour.
We had a nice dinner. It was off season so nice and quiet. The historic atmosphere is lovely.
Best in the Island of Hilton Head, South Carolina.
We plan on going again.
Love the outdoor patio! Was a perfect outdoor dining experience. Food was great and service was excellent. The only reason I gave 4 stars instead of 5 was because they knew it was my husband’s birthday and while they said happy birthday his dessert came without any special message or even a candle. I just expected something special.
Nice, peaceful place to celebrate our anniversary! Best pork chops anywhere. Good service, good food and we will be back!
Excellent meal - only suggestion would be is - servers should know which diner receives which entree. Annoying to have server keep asking who got what.
Throughly enjoy your restaurant and will return.
Great food and atmosphere. Service was terrible. Server was perpetually MIA. We oftentimes sat with empty wine and water bottles, but no server in sight for refills. Dirty dishes sat in front of us forever and no-one came by to clear the table. I had asked the server for cracked pepper on my salad and she said sure, but never returned with any. After waiting a really long time, I had to ask another person to get our server so that we could pay our bill and leave. Perhaps the server was overloaded, or perhaps she was just bad. Who knows.
Had a lovely evening - we come to Hilton Head several times a year - we ALWAYS make sure we get to dine at CQ’s while in town. Good food, great staff !
Awesome dinner on the patio.
CQ’s is a wonderful place to exquisite dining! We always love to bring guests here. Great selection of wines and the food is exceptional.
The food and excellent service never disappoint!! Thank you for our outside seating!
CQ’s is our favorite HH restaurant, it never fails! Great food, wonderful service.
Service was outstanding. Our waiter was one of the best I have had. I have eaten at CQ several times. This was not the best food we have had. Mussels were so, so,. The wedge was somewhat flavorless, which is hard to do. Duck breast was very good. This was not their best performance. Without the great service, the review would have been even lower, very sorry to say since I have always been a fan of CQ's.
CQ’s one of our favs when on the Island.!!!! It’s a must.
First class service; beautiful night for dining alfresco. Cody, our server, was on point with recommendations and service. Best pork chop and risotto I have ever enjoyed. The others had crab cakes, sea bass and ahi tuna and cleaned their plates as well! We had the most wonderful evening!
We have had to lovely meals on the patio. Highly recommend CQ’s
Great as usual
Food was amazing, service was impeccable!!!
Cqs is hard to compete with. Food, wine was all excellent. The help is top shelve, hard to compete with. The chowder will stand on its own
Our first return to the area in 5 years - sat at the bar - Matt made it exceptional as well as the chef!
Great evening dining outside at our longtime favorite restaurant on HHI. All three of us had different fresh fish selections that were
excellent. The staff was attentive to our needs. Huge wine inventory as usual. We felt safe and properly distanced from other diners.
Love the food Went for our friends Anniversary and the staff went above and beyond to help us celebrate. Thank you!! This is one of our favorite restaurants in HHI
Very nice place. Great food and service. Nice ambiance.
Our family of 5 had a perfect evening at CQ's. The cocktails were amazing (even the mocktails for my underage daughter). Every meal was delicious (we've waited all summer to enjoy a fried green tomatoes with pimento cheese spread app). Our server could not have been more pleasant! The ambiance was everything - sitting outside under strings of Edison lights bulbs with Spanish moss swaying above us made the conversation that much more memorable. I cannot wait to go back!
It’s beautiful setup outdoors surrounded by trees, romantic and elegant! Waiter was very knowledgeable and took good care of us. Food was outstanding and loved the presentation. We’ll be back there again soon!
Food and service was wonderful!
Food was fantastic. We were there celebrating our anniversary and everyone made our experience feel very personal. Our waiter Cody was exceptional! We will definitely recommend CQ’s and be back ourselves next time we’re in Hilton Head!
I love the restaurant... I just want better... Better menu... Better bread service... Consistently serving stale bread...Why? Stoic approach to service and back of the house creativity. I asked the price of the 16 oz bone-in rib-eye steak, one of the nightly specials and was quoted $65.00. That equates to a steak that cost $65.00 a pound. Crane's, a premier local steak house quotes an 18 oz Prime rib-eye steak for $49.00. The nightly fish special is good, but seems the preparation is redundant. Kitchen just changes out the selection of fresh catch. I believe in this restaurant, and I do return... Hoping for better.
