Delicious Banana Pudding

This was our first visit, but it won't be our last. The service was great and the food was really good. The fried green tomatoes should be a top priority and, of course, the banana pudding is not to be missed.

The two meals I had while visiting in February 2016 were ok, but not great. A lot of the same flavor, covered in gravy of the same flavor. My husband really enjoyed his food, though. Everyone like the banana pudding and key lime pie, too. The atmosphere is very nice. Great if you can sit outside. Service was very friendly.

My wife dined here for our 5th anniversary tonight and LOVED it. It was in the top 3 or 4 restaurants I've been to in the last few years. Even on a Saturday night, there was no wait and great ambiance. If you're looking for genuine Lowcountry cuisine and culture, you should try Lowcountry Backyard. I had the Seafood Purloo,... More

We've been there twice. It's a fun place to eat but the food is just ok.in our group the Meatloaf was most popular. Dads Chicken avgerage. Shrimp and grits the least. And we like grits. Seafood special was flounder. Wish I would of ordered fried. Expected more based on reviews. Do expect to wait in high season but fun shops... More

Shrimp purloo and crab cakes and sour cream mashed potatoes; great comfort foods. Banana pudding was the perfect top to a great evening. Service was attentive and fun. An inside winter joy in contrast to eating outside in their great patio.

Food and service was good. Light crowd but server was excellent. Literally had an outdoors atmosphere. Had temperature been warmer we would have been outside.

One trip each vacation is just not enough for my family. We started our week with Sunday breakfast and ended with Friday night dinner. They smoothly accommodated a group of 12 of us, even though they don't take reservations. Don't miss the fried green tomatoes, or the pimento cheese. Absolutely my favorite restaurant on Hilton Head. Everyone loves the banana... More

I have eaten at Lowcountry Backyard on numerous occasions and I have to say - have NEVER been disappointed. The wait staff, the host/hostess, and the food are all excellent! It has a really nice, comfortable atmosphere and I promise, if you try it once, you'll go back again and again. Try it - and ENJOY!

Could not have picked a better place to eat. Mary was so delightful as our server with great recommendations. My wife started with the soup and pimento cheese app and it was tasty. Mary heated it up instead of serving it cold, and my wife said it was "divine". I ordered the Seafood Purloo and without question, one of the... More

I spent a quick Sunday morning in Hilton Head after a solo excursion to Savannah for the weekend. A former teacher of mine recommended A Lowcountry Backyard to me, so I decided to give it a try. I was seated quickly, and I ordered coffee and the shrimp and grits -- it sounded too good to pass up. From what... More
