Hard to find but worth it for low country food

You really have to look to find this place but it is worth it. Small and homey with a rather limited menu but the service was great and my lunch was delicious. Outside eating available as well.

Another local restaurant we've uncovered this trip. Highly recommend you add a meal at A Lowcountry Backyard to your plans next time you visit HHI. The mushroom soup was delish and my catfish sandwich all that I hoped for and more!

We found A Lowcountry Backyard on TripAdvisor last summer while staying on the island. Today, we were in Savannah and decided to drive to the Outlet Mall for some shopping, then decided to continue on to Lowcountry Backyard for a late lunch. Boy! Was it ever worth the drive! Happy to say the food was as good as or better... More

We enjoyed lunch at the Backyard. It was a little hard to find but well worth the search. The waitress was very friendly and accommodating and the shrimp and grits and fried green tomato BLT were both excellent.

Fast, friendly service. Shrimp and Grits and the Charleston Special both very good. Sat outside on a cool evening. Very interesting propane heaters did the trick.

First place we ate after arriving in Hilton Head - what a wonderful start! The shrimp burger is unique, super fresh and perfectly cooked - could be easy to over cook shrimp. The shrimp and grits were also perfect. Nice selection of beers as well. Topped off meal with banana pudding - not too sweet. We'll be going back before... More

Found this place in a magazine. Since it was a little chilly we called to verify they had indoor seating. Don't let the name "Backyard" trouble you. Indoor and outdoor seating is available. Since we wanted indoor seating we had to wait a few minutes. No problem. We were seated inside with a view of the kitchen. :>( Ok we... More
