Great Bites With A Cosmopolitan Feel!

If you’re vacationing, playing golf or a local of Hilton Head Island on the coast of South Carolina, and you’re looking for a late-night spot for food, fun and a great ambiance, head to Wiseguys. Popular and well-known for their Small Plates, savory award-winning wine list and hip atmosphere, this accommodation will quickly become a favorite of yours just as it did with us.

This modern upscale restaurant and lounge is well known for their amazing succulent steaks, small plates, creative cocktails and incredible wine collection. It is a “must do” when on the island and will not disappoint. Its trendy vibe and cultured environment will whisk you off the island once you enter through the stainless steel front doors and instantly transport you to the city via the sleek plush lounge, hip and cozy motif and visually stunning presentation of both chilled beverages and specialty cuisine.

With both indoor seating and a pleasant covered outdoor patio area in front of this establishment, Wiseguys’ indoor lounge is our favorite place to meet, mingle and enjoy urban-inspired bites created by Chef Jim Spratling. Below, the Pinot Noir we enjoyed is just one on a list of over 150 labels available available. Refreshing hand-made cocktails are also refreshing and beautifully presented.

In 2009, 2010 and 2011, Wiseguys has been awarded the Wine Spectator’s Award of Excellence for their amazing collection. This place knows wine…you can count on that. And we are assured that you will be thrilled with their unique offerings when you check it our for yourself on your next visit.

The photo collage above includes savory red wine, refreshing and crisp white wine, a Cosmopolitan, and the Hibiscus Margarita made with Hibiscus Flower Infused Tequila, fresh-squeezed lime juice and organic agave nectar. YUM! I especially loved the chilled metal martini glass the Cosmo is served in. Such a unique twist on the traditional martini glass!

Wiseguys does offer a Happy Hour daily from 5 – 7 PM when you can receive $1.00 Wiseguyts poker chips with any regular beer, wine or cocktail that can be used toward your bill at the end of the night. (What a fun idea)! My husband and I usually order from the “Small Plates” and “Signature Pizzettas” menus. The below are a few of our favorites that we can’t help ordering over and over again…

Above, the WG Short Rib Sliders with braise short rib of beef, creamy horseradish sauce, crispy parsnips and house chips. Savory, appetizing and full of flavor, this small plate is one of our favorites. (See all photos and full review at SavorHour.com)

The Tuna Tartare Lettuce Wraps are fashioned with Boston Lettuce, fresh avocado, wonton crisps and a wasabi soy vinaigrette. If you’re a tartare lover, this is a perfect item for you! Great for those who prefer to avoid bread, this lettuce-cupped tuna presentation is not only filling, but also visually pleasing.

This one is a real winner with my husband. His love of very thin-crusted pizza met its match once he tried Wiseguys’ Signature Margherita Pizzetta. In fact, we’ve tried this specific selection numerous times. Tomato sauce, fresh mozzarella and pesto enhance the thin fresh-baked crust that is baked to perfection then drizzled with a basil puree on top. SImply delicious!

These Sweet & Spicy Chili-Glazed Shrimp served with a Napa Slaw were delectable with a kick! Spicy, yet very pleasing to the palate, these tender tempura-battered bites were easily enjoyed. If you like spicy foods, this is a certain champion in the category.

Another sensational Small Plate at Wiseguys we recommend are the Seared Tuna Sliders served with a truffle Aioli and petite greens on fresh-baked mini rolls and house chips. Light and scrumptious, this dish will have you ordering more once you finish the first plate!
