Went there while exploring cute Shelter Cove. Quiet place with excellent customer service, really good martinis and an excellent and well prepared menu. Our lovely waitress was a great conversationalist, along with her job. Highly recommend for a tasty dinner and an overall lovely experience

Went with a Buddy by boat, the restaurant choice was his. My wife and I had passed by here about two years ago, rejected the menu and moved on. The lunch menu is different and I really enjoyed the Shrimp Salad on Croissant ($14). My friend liked the Croque Madame ($15); apparently selected before we arrived. Our waitress, Tammy, was...

I love this area. This country french restaurant could please any Foodie out there. My wife and I ate 3 times while on vacation for 2 weeks. The Mahi was out of this world and the sunset and piano player made this a very special memory. Will be back.

We stopped here for lunch as a family of four adults. Oh my, was the salmon delicious or what... Very good service and ice cold drinks to break the summer heat. This is definitely a spot we will return to.

Unfortunately we were unable to try tho restaurant because we stopped by at 8:45pm on Friday night only to be told the kitchen was closed to a 9:30 closing time. After 10 years in restaurant management I have never seen a restaurant that closes its kitchen before its posted hours...disappointing. This review is based entirely on the attitude of the... More

Look forward to eating here every time we are in Hilton Head. Crab cakes are amazing. I had chicken dish this time, and the chicken was melting in my mouth. Service is top notch, every time. Our favorite every time.
