I love to take my overseas vistors to this restaurant because of the charming Southern feel of the place and menu. Lorraine never lets me down, always so friendly and my guests always leave feeling like they have had a little bit of Southern comfort. Love the pickles they are homemade and the banana pudding bought my English friends back... More

Great service & menu, pimento cheese grilled on flatbread-loved it. Mama's pasta salad is the perfect side. Going back again and again!

This place was such a fun find! It feels like a real Southern experience, from the backyard which looks like the set of Hart of Dixie to the low country food options and the cute Southern touches. Drinks are served in mason jars and our check was presented on a clothes pin. Loved it!

I ate at the Backyard just last week. The menu was excellent - lots of variety to choose from. Each of the 4 people in my group agreed that the food was fantastic. The restaurant had a very nice ambience, too. Our waitress (Kim) was genuinely friendly and upbeat. We were able to bypass the waiting line of about 15... More

It's lovely in the back yard. We had great soup and the shrimp and grits at lunch. The crab cake sandwich was ok...but I Iive near the Chesapeake.... Have pretty high standards. Try the banana pudding...it's worth every calorie. The service is exceptional...

Ordered flounder and amber jack (daily special) sandwiches. Both fish cooked perfectly. Good homemade condiments. Great service. Intriguing menu. Worth a side trip to eat there.

Delicious food, great atmosphere. All the 5 star reviews are true! Far from a franchise, a restaurant on its own locally owned and run. Best ever fried green tomatoes.

Just left the Restaurant, wonderful service from Amy, outside seating area with entertainment was very nice, Calibogue Catch and the Seafood Purloo were outstanding. Just a wonderful place to relax and enjoy some excellent South Carolina Low Country favorites

We were told we had THE best grits in Savannah but had to give Hilton Head a try too, since we were based there. Now...I still feel the grits in ASavannah were a touch better, as I prefer bacon to large slices of sausage...but OMG were they delish! And what a HUGE serving! The yard itself was also so adorable-unfortunately-due... More
