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.
Lovely dinner option, wonderful dinner and amazing staff ❤️
Great dinner on the patio outside! Ambiance is lovely - lights draped between the big trees creates an intimate atmosphere. Food was delicious - the dessert was amazing (key lime pie and bread pudding).
QC was an excellent venue for our last night at HHI ... Drinks, appetizers, entrees, and deserts. The cosmopolitans and martinis were perfect, and the fried green tomatoes the best I've had. We had 4 entrees and all were superb, as was the peach cobbler ala mode. Plus, the service and atmosphere were excellent. We plan to take a larger group there in the Spring.
Toughest $65 steak ever; driest $32 chicken. We have been coming for years and this time we found the food quality to be very poor and the prices outrageous.
Great restaurant just a bit pricey
Don’t be fooled! We have been here probably six or more times over the years but something has changed on our last two visits this year. We gave it another shot tonight our last name is Emrick. Shrimp overcooked, Caesar salad dressing was not made on premise and the Sea Bass along with my wife’s Salmon were poorly prepared and again overcooked. Never again!
Another exceptional evening at CQ’s
DELICIOUS. Everything we had was excellent. Soups, crab cakes, scallops, key lime pie, peach cobbler, and even the rolls. Cocktails were also very good. Service was fast and friendly. Certainly worth the price tag.
Wanted to eat outside but we were safe inside. Loud table next to us.
Excellent as always! Our go-to restaurant when we're on HHI
Thus is our “go to” date night restaurant when we visit Hilton Head!
Menu options were varied and delicious!! Great environment! Service was impeccable. Nice change from typical beach eats.
It was a little in the pricey side but the food was excellent and loved the atmosphere. This was our first time at CQ’s and we will definitely be back!
Food & Service was excellent! Pork Chop & Sea Bass was unbelievable! Definitely will go back!
Really good food in a quiet and quaint little place.
Overall this is a solid option for a special occasion. Food, service and ambiance are good but it feels the place needs a Re-fresh. For the money there are far better options.
Excellent food & service. Prices a little high.
We had a wonderful server named Phoebe. The food was amazing. The atmosphere has a wonderful vibe and we felt very comfortable given these trying times. Definitely the best restaurant on HHI. We intend to return soon.
We love this restaurant. We have never had a bad meal.
One of our all-time favorites. Great food and service. Try the tuna!
Had a fabulous bottle of wine with the catch of the day, wreck fish. An absolutely perfect meal and splendid service by Cody our endearing and attentive server. Must mention the scrumptious peach cobbler, delicious and divine! Thank you CQs, couldn't be happier!!!
We dined on the patio, which I love! A fan to help stir the air would have been a plus. As always, the French martini was delish and my entree, the wreck fish special, was perfection.
The seed ice is spectacular! Food is amazing! It is 20 stars in as scale of 1-10!!!!!
Great food, service, and ambiance. This place is a local gem. Best key lime pie ever!
Our server was fantastic, good suggestions.
I think the restaurant could use some updating, been going to CQ's for almost 30 years and really nothing has changed.
Food is good, service was great....
