We were the first to be seated for an early lunch at 11:00. I had the crab cake sandwich which was very good and a side of deliciously seasoned lima beans. My husband had the special sandwich of the day which was blackened Wahoo. He really liked it. He didn't care for the Cole Slaw as it had too much... More

Well another pilgrimage to get the best damn shrimp and grits in the low country. And one again, you all lived up to the reputation you've worked so hard over the years to acheive. My wife had meatloaf, another winner. My Mother had the crab cake sandwich...., Yep, you got it, she loved it. See you guys again real soon.

We went on a rainy night. Wait was not long. The special was good but someone was talked into the meatloaf by our waitress. They hated it.

We had dinner here on 9/15/14. Although no longer the high season and on a Monday evening around 7:30pm ... we still had to wait about 20 minutes for a table. We took this as a sign of good things to come and we weren't disappointed. Clearly quite a few locals in the restaurant and everyone was friendly. The food... More

My mother and I ate here last week. I had heard such great things that I was really looking forward to it but was let down and won't go back. Food: I ordered the meatloaf with the whipped mashed potatoes and baked mac & cheese. The meatloaf was good, I just wasn't used to BBQ sauce over it. The mashed... More

This is a very nice place ... food is tasty .... I would not rate it quite as high as some and I liked the meat loaf but didn't love it. It is a quaint outdoor seating place with live music ... friendly staff ... My lovely wife agree that it was a good restaurant but not great.

While on Hilton Head Island, we decided to try a place that our friends had never been(they have had a condo here for 35 years). We were seated in the small room. It was cute inside and the patio looked nice. We ordered appetizers, the fried green tomatoes, which were delicious, the pimento cheese tray and the crab dip were... More

This was recommended to us as "the best shrimp and grits on the island" and that was very true. We ate here twice during our week on the island and tried a lot of different items. None disappointed but as others have stated the shrimp and grits and the fried green tomatoes were true standouts. Throw in pleasant service and... More

It's not the easiest to find when you are new to the area, but it's worth going back around the block for the food! The service was very friendly, fast and attentive. The Shrimp and Grits were to die for and the Fried Green Tomato BLT delicious. The veggie special for the day, lima beans, was flavorful as well. A... More
