This was our second visit to A lowcountry Backyard, and it was equally as good as we remembered from our first visit. The atmosphere is casual and local. The service was on the spot. The food was excellant. I had the Backyard Reunion which was BBQ chicken, BBQ pork and shrimp, with grits and corn bread for sides. I wasn't... More

I had a late lunch at A Lowcountry Backyard. I arrived shortly before closing but one of the servers invited me in anyway. I had the Fried Green BLT sandwich with a side of Collard Greens. It was absolutely delightful. Fresh, flavorful and simple. The server talked me into the Banana Pudding for dessert and I am absolutely glad she... More

It is low country food. Well done in a ok atmosphere. If you advertize as a low country restaurant you better knock shrimp and grits out of the park. In my opinion they did not quite achieve a home run. Well done but I have had better. Given the season of our visit we ate indoors so I can make... More

When traveling we tend to try restaurants which are recommended opposed to those which do mega advertising. So glad this was on our list. I chose the potatoe chip meatloaf and my husband tried the chicken and biscuit. Both were great and the meatloaf dinner with Limas and greens was so plentiful half came home for lunch tomorrow. Service friendly... More

My wife and I had dinner here and it was everything a restaurant is supposed to be. If you are traveling from outside the area and don't dine here you aren't getting the full Hilton Head experience. The food, service, and the moonshine were outstanding!

This isn't the easiest place to find. I had to circle the block because I missed the entrance on the initial attempt. But it was worth the little bit of extra effort. I figured since it was my first time here I had to try their famed shrimp and grits. I was prepared for good...but not great. They were great!... More

Every time I return to Hilton Head, this is the first restaurant I want to visit, and the restaurant I would never skip. Great for everyone. Interesting and flavorful crab cakes, good salads, the best fried green tomatoes. The service is friendly. In the off-season there isn't; a wait. A little hard to find, but worth the effort.

By far our favorite HHI restaurant now! We immediately fell in love with the whimsical backyard atmosphere, and the food met the expectation! We were shocked at the affordable prices on the menu too. Don't miss the banana pudding!! While you wait for your food, enjoy a yard game or two. The staff is so friendly; they make you feel... More
