About
From our fresh catch items to our "Coast-to-Coast" entrees, we have the best selection of seafood, steaks and much more! Coastal cuisine highlighting wonderfully realized use of local and seasonal ingredients; with skillful service by an informative staff. Poseidon continues to impress with its phenomenal high-caliber dishes especially the melt-in-your-mouth Grilled Gulf Grouper. Check out our "The World Is Your Oyster" Raw bar, whether you are an oyster aficionado, or not, it is worth it to visit. Pair with a cold glass of white wine and you're in raw bar heaven. Poseidon's unique waterfront site at Shelter Cove Towne Centre overlooks broad creek, allowing for some of the best water and sunset

We have dined here during previous vacations in Hilton Head........and have had positive experiences. Yes, the restaurant is noisy and even if you make reservations, you're still in for a bit of a wait for a table. If you don't make reservations, there's a good...chance that your wait will be much longer, though. I ordered Broiled Sea Scallops for my dinner and my spouse ordered a Broiled Seafood Combination (which included sea scallops) for his. Imagine my surprise when my sea scallops were half the size of his! After speaking with a manager, we were told that the larger ones that my spouse had on his plate are what they serve on higher-priced dishes and the smaller ones that I received are what they serve for lower-priced entrees (not that mine was cheap, by any means). If the restaurant uses various sea scallops grades/sizes, it might be a good idea to note that on the menu so that others like me aren't disappointed in what they receive.More

Went as a party of 6 with reservations. Arrived and was seated within 10 minutes of reservation. Started with She Crab Soup, very good, lots of crab and creamy. Hubby and I had filet and lobster tail. Cooked to our desired temp and lobster was...nice and sweet. Others in our party was very happy with their meals as well. King Crab, mixed grill. Our server was Barb, extremely efficient and took excellent care of us. I highly recommend this restaurant and hopefully you get Barb as your server.More

We waited two hours for one of the best meals on the Island. Started with She Crab Soup. It was so creamy, with lots of Crab and a nice bit of Sherry. We had Cod, Stuffed Shrimp, and Scallops. All excellent. The mixed Roasted veggies...were fantastic. The rice, yep, excellent. Our server Melissa was also excellent. This is a must stop for a great meal.More

We made a reservation at Poseidon based on ranking and reviews. We were surprised the restaurant was in a mall and felt more like a sports bar than a restaurant. The food was great, service was great, but the front of house hostesses acted like...they couldn’t be bothered. One of them didn’t smile or greet us, took our name, and said the wait might be an hour. We decided to walk to a shop only to get paged in less than 5 minutes. Overall, I recommend this restaurant for lunch, families etc, but not for a romantic date night out.More

We went on Sunday 10/10, reservations at 7:45. We arrived and there was an awesome festival across the street, but it was incredibly loud. Our table was ready outside, but we were celebrating my parents 50th anniversary and it was too loud to eat outside....The restaurant quickly was able to put a new table of 10 together for my parents inside. Once inside, Barb was our server. Barb was AWESOME. It was incredibly evident that she was killing multiple tables and taking care of everyone. Our meal was great. Everyone's dishes were fantastic. The food runners did leave off a few items (soy sauce for sushi, crackers and hot sauce for oysters) but Barb was immediately attentive and hustled back to get the missing items. Hands down a great restaurant, great food, and an AMAZING server in Barb. She probably should be running the place :)More

Food was delicious and servings very plentiful. We all had something different and everyone's selection was awesome. A little noisy but we wouldn't have wanted to miss the fabulous food.

Even though the restaurant was very busy our waitress Melissa waited on us almost immediately. She was very pleasant. Always smiling. Excellent service. Not to mention the food was very good. But you expect good food from the SERG group of restaurants.

I wrote a review for Poseidon 5 years ago and rated it as Excellent. Last night we returned to find that our opinion has not changed. My daughter does not care for seafood, ( ? ) so she ordered the pizza and salad and was...very pleased. My wife and I ordered two different shrimp dishes that were perfectly cooked and seasoned. The portions have not been cut back as we have experienced at other restaurants, and we had shrimp to bring home. We have always enjoyed the table service in past visits but this time was special because of the unique personal feeling we experienced from Barb. She had so many tables to wait on but she somehow found a way to check on us several times to ask if we needed anything else. Poseidon definitely is on our Must List, for future visits to the island.More

14 needs to be phoned in for a discussion. You probably are going to need a special reserved room for a party that size.
