Great Food

This pace was recommended to me by a client who had recently visited the island. There was a wait like a most good restaurants in HH but this place was worth the it!

Had an early dinner here on our recent trip to Hilton head. Amazing homemade southern food in a fun family friendly atmosphere. Nightly music and great drinks makes it extra fun! Had a delicious moonshine drink, seafood special, and followed by berry gobbler. The banana pudding is amazing as well and all really homemade! Loved it so much we went... More

Delicious food, we dined outside for lunch...The restaurant is small, so it is better for smaller groups. It was a very hot day- but they kept our ice water glasses full! We enjoyed the fried green tomatoes for a starter. Food favorites were crab cake sandwich and blackened fish! There is a porch swing and games for children outside to... More

This place opens at 4:30 and is usually packed by 5 pm. I'm guessing that total seating is limited to 75-80 people split between outside under a large umbrella and inside with air conditioning. The setting is nice in that the inside seating is old and quaint and the outside feels like you are in your friends backyard. Friday nights... More

Food was great.. However waiting to be seated outside for an hour in 90 degree heat with a baby and a toddler was not. When we finally made it inside they had the side doors propped open and the ac was off. Go when the temperature is tolerable.. You've been warned. :)

Waited over an hour to get seated which was fine that's what they said. But got seated and waited another hour for our food. Didn't order any appetizers, salads or anything but sat at table for an hour waiting for our food. When we finally got our food was not impressed. Was at the restaurant for 2 and a 1/2... More

Great food and great atmosphere. Outside seating is great for kids because of the activities (shuffle board, large board games, etc.).

I don't normally leave negative reviews, but I won't tolerate being lied to. I called to ask if they take reservations, which they do not. So I asked how busy it was, to which they replied there was currently no wait. When we arrived five minutes later the host stated there was in fact over an hour wait. We walked... More

Good food. Expected shrimp and grits to be better. Grits were a bit runny. Pimento cheese was the bomb and the key lime pie was fantastic. Good atmosphere but place was a bit hot and humid. Not something you want when out in the sun all day.

Several trips to Hilton Head over the years, this is consistently our favorite restaurant. Service is great. It's a small place with a courtyard as far as atmosphere. Food is the reason we keep coming back. Fresh fish uniquely prepared, shrimp n grits, low country comfort foods - all awesome! Great banana pudding to finish it off.
