Great restaurant... Worth going to. Went for lunch and it was terrific ... Had a salad topped with swordfish and it was wonderful. Nice laid back setting.

The food was unique and good. Prices were reasonable. Service was great. Sat outside and the area is nice but table was little wobbly as ground didn't appear leveled.

My friend and I had lunch here on a Saturday afternoon. We had NO WAIT. I was shocked considering the other reviews. The food was hot and delicious. Great fish dishes. The wait staff was a bit unprofessional as two of them had an argument right in the middle of the dining room. Would have eaten here again if our... More

My mother and I dined at this restaurant after a co-worker recommended it. We have been coming to Hilton Head for years and tend to eat at the same places, but we decided to try something new. We arrived around 7:00 on a Thursday night and were immediately seated at a table inside. The lighting is quite dim which made... More

This place was a sweet find on our most recent trip to Hilton Head Island. If you want to have a meal with a taste of local flavor and dishes that remind you of the real lowcountry. This is the restaurant you'll want to try. Atmosphere is very comfortable and casual. Service was outstanding and the food was excellent. We... More

As a single traveler, you never know what kind of service you'll get. Checked out this restaurant on TA and found good reviews. They were accurate! I had good service, outside is best if you like to people watch. I ordered the shrimp burger and slaw. The burger was flavorful, bun fresh and seasoned just enough to make it interesting.... More

A Lowcountry Backyard is definitely worth a stop by if you're looking for some really good regional, comfort food cooking. We the pimento cheese appetizer was super yum, but the dish that stole the show was the shrimp and grits. The back porch is very cute and cozy...they even have some games for the kids. This is a place we... More

We vacation in Hilton Head often. Have eaten at a lot of the restaurants in HH and most have been good. This one was very good. Had the blackened tuna and seafood corn chowder. Both were excellent. This is also one of the more price friendly places on the island. Good food, good prices, fun setting and friendly staff. What... More
