WATERFRONT DINING

The Old Oyster Factory was built on the site of an original oyster cannery. From 1925 until the 1990’s, 1700 acres of nearby creeks and wetlands were harvested and their yield brought to a one-story concrete building located directly under the restaurant. After canning, the oysters were shipped all over the Lowcountry bearing the appellation of the Broad Creek Oyster Factory.

Today, the Old Oyster Factory’s scenery and enticing menu options makes it one of Hilton Head Island’s gems. Enjoy panoramic marsh and water views, fresh seafood and sumptuous steaks and their award-winning wine list.
