This place is a hit! Great food, excellent service, reasonable prices and a charming setting make Lowcountry Backyard a real find. You drive into a small strip center and find this gem towards the back behind some stores. Once you get out of your car, you see their hidden backyard garden under a tremendous umbrella and the entrance to the... More

Not so much for us. For the all the hype and Tripadvisor reviews it was a a disappointment. The chicken breast that was supposed to be a specialty wasn't even real chicken breast. Pulled pork was over processed. Grits are great, but that's it. Good honest effort on the gluten free which is appreciated but for the price, food substandard.

we come here every year and have never been disappointed. We ate here for Valentine's Day dinner with our grandchildren and daughter-in-law. Everyone enjoyed their meals.

We came in for a drink and possibly an appetizer, but after the review of the menu and a look see around the dining room, we just had one beer. There wasn't a great beer selection. The menu wasn't appealing to us, but to be fair, we were looking for fresh seafood as we have plenty of country cooking at... More

Friendly staff, welcoming atmosphere and to die for food! We had the bischick and the seafood purloo - blackened grouper, shrimp and sausage. Started with crab dip and ended with banana pudding & key lime pie!

This is probably the 5th or 6th time we've visited. We're permanent residents so we are less inclined to venture this far south on the island between Memorial Day and Labor Day -- it's just too crowded with tourists. But -- during the off-season we do visit places like A Lowcountry Backyard. We've never been disappointed. This time, our guest... More

Great atmosphere, very friendly staff. We are from Texas and visit Hilton Head Island every year. This is a must stop every visit. Highly recommend the fried green tomatoes with their homemade ranch and the meatloaf is to die for!! This is my favorite place on the Island!
