CQ’s Restaurant


CQs Restaurant

CQ’s Restaurant combines fine dining, an intimate atmosphere and a touch of Hilton Head Island history. From the moment you set foot on the polished, original, century heart-of-pine floors, you can look around and discern a sense of time passed. 

The echoes of CQ’s beginnings and the island’s centuries-old history remain with each room bearing a significance of Lowcountry remembrance. 

Let the wait staff tell you all about the legend of “The Blue Lady.” 

What began as a casual-dining establishment in the early days has grown into the finest in dining experiences. Since 1973, CQ’s has offered signature dishes inspired by the abundant varieties of fresh seafood, beef and game. 

CQ’s main dishes include Grand Marnier shrimp and grits, signature seared Ahi Tuna and Butchers Block prime pork chop. Desserts crafted in-house include the delectable Creme Brulee, cheesecakes and daily specials of warm bread puddings. 

Sit at the bar anytime and enjoy craft cocktails and eclectic wines. 

The exceptional wine list includes a variety of wonderful wines selected specifically with the menu in mind that are offered by the glass, along with full bottles and a full bar. 

A tasting menu is offered. Children’s menus and take-out are available. Open daily for dinner, 5-9:30 p.m. Early dining seating 5-5:30 p.m. Outdoor seating. Reservations recommended.
