After 28 years with Fitzgerald’s, I was fortunate enough to make friends from all over the world. Some I see frequently while others only when they come to visit each year.

When Fitzgerald’s closed, it may have been the end of an era but for me it was the realization and beginning of a dream.  I knew I would miss my friends I considered family who worked with me for so many years as well as my friends most call customers.

I decided to start a restaurant with unique qualities but keeping in the same island tradition so many came to enjoy for years and years.  I have created Hugo’s to continue that tradition of Low Country dining at its finest.  Hugo’s will bring you the same flare and exceptional service that you have come to expect.

As I developed the menu, many old friends asked, “Aren’t you going to have the crabcakes?” and “Aren’t you going to feature the she-crab soup and the pecan fried chicken and ….” and on and on the requests came in for old favorites I had served them for years.  I’ve kept some old favorites and developed  new ones and look forward to seeing all my old friends and making some new ones along the way. Many of the Fitzgerald’s staff have joined me so come see some familiar faces for a unique time.

Thank you for coming by and I hope you enjoy Hugo’s as much as I have enjoyed bringing this to you.  Welcome to Hugo’s.
