The food is delicious and fresh here! Would definitely return. Huge, fresh and local shrimp in the low country boil, whipped potatoes were amazing, shrimp burger delish, kids baked chicken so very good. Staff very friendly. Only complaint - it was hot inside and no cocktail sauce. Otherwise, a GrEaT restaurant!!

A lowcountry backyard is a hidden gem in hilton head. The wait can be rather long as we waited almost 2 hours for a table for 4 and that was arriving at 6:15. The meatloaf is delicious and the shrimp bowl was good too and very large (it could have fed 2 with small appetites). I would also recommend the... More

Tucked away in a corner, with limited and congested parking is this jewel of a restaurant. Our food was superb, and so was our service. The restaurant has limited seating due to its size but our party of 7, (4 adults and 3 kiddos) was never once rushed or made to feel like we needed to leave. This place is... More

This is a great place for local cuisine and freindly service. Small with limited seating so get there early or be prepared to wait. We put our name on the list and were lucky enough to grab a seat at the bar to order a beer when the bartender told us we could order dinner there. Had crab soup, which... More

This place is a good bargain and the atmosphere is pretty unique for the island. The food rates out at a B, but unfortunately rude service tonight =(

Incredible blend of flavors. Great Charleston iced tea. Accommodating to our party of 10. Wonderful service. Try the Charleston Green Tomato BLT with pimento cheese. To die for!! Best place we've eaten in years!!

Glad we went and cool funky vibe as well as local menu. Good to at least try once. Not sure I would wait 90 ,in to go back and glad we did not have kids with us for the wait. Smokehouse across the street was a good place to hang out during wait. Backyard seating is fun if weather is... More

We just weren't crazy about our meals. Nothing was wrong with them.... We visited this place based off all the reviews claiming this was the best food on the island. My wife wasn't crazy about the way they prepared her meatloaf and I wasn't crazy about their bbq sauce which was the main flavor on my chicken, pork and shrimp.... More
