Wonderful

First time to eat here. Our family will return next year. There is limited seating so be prepared to wait but it is worth it. There are outdoor games you can play while waiting

This is my second review for ALB... Went on Saturday for lunch...wasn't impressed. Ordered the pimento grilled cheese which was a blob of pimento cheese between two slices of white toast...wouldn't really call it a grilled cheese! My mom and dad both enjoyed their lunches they had the lunch special blackened mahi sandwich and the charleston BLT... I tasted both... More

Thank you so much for coming back. Sounds like everyone enjoyed their meals but our kitchen staff made a cold pimento cheese sandwich instead of a grilled pimento cheese sandwich for you. I completely apologize and have reiterated to our kitchen staff to check the ticket twice before making the food to be sure it is prepared correctly. Please rest... More

Good food and very clean. Eat outside for fun atmosphere. The pimento spread was delicious and so were the fried tomatoes.

Ate there twice two years ago and we were not disappointed. Yummm! Great service. Recent additional seating. Our first choice when we visit Hilton Head.

We enjoyed our lunch at this establishment. I ordered the " Southern Belle" Salad (which had glazed pecans in it) and for an extra cost asked for some chicken which was very nicely grilled. The choices of salad dressing were all homemade. My husband had the potato chip meatloaf, and opted not to have the " Moonshine" Barbeque Sauce on... More

I have been to A Lowcountry Backyard for brunch several times, and every time it is a treat! The outside dining area is set up like you are eating in a backyard under an umbrella. Some of the favorite dishes that I have had are the Backyard Benedict and the Shrimp and Grits. I will continue to return to try... More

Found this restaurant as a result of trip advisor search. If you are looking for excellent local fare search no more. The food is superb. Very friendly staff. Awesome vibe and ambiance. Shrimp and grits as good as it gets along with the seafood parloo. Very reasonably priced for the quality of food served. Off the beaten path and well... More

The only thing my family and I can think is that this place really benefits from a herd mentality. We came here expecting a 4.8 experience. We had a great attitude. We were looking forward to it for weeks. Maybe we should have managed our expectations... The first thing we noted were the flies. We were sitting in the "backyard"... More

Been to HHI many times but somehow missed this gem. Excellent menu and food. Warm friendly service. Families, couples, golf buddies all enjoying the casual "backyard" dining. Wife had crab cakes with tasty dill sauce and I went for the Potato chip Meatloaf. Both delicious! Don't miss out on the crab dip. What really impressed me that Raina the owner... More

I have never had a bad meal at Lowcoountry Backyard. I stopped in to do a take out for my friend who just had a hip replacement. His favorite sandwich is the Meatloaf Sandwich, and I picked up his sandwich and a One Bean Salad for me. That one bean salad is so good, especially with the homemade blue cheese... More
