After hearing from a friends about this restaurant we decided to make the trip with three children since we were vacationing in Hilton Head. . It was pouring rain and even though we had to wait to get a table, with little space to do it in due to the rain, the hostess was very attentive and got a things... More

I have no idea why this is a $$$$ cost rating. It's affordable awesomeness. Can't wait to get back there. Shrimp and grits is great too.

We read the reviews and decided to give it a try. We got there early 5:30 and there already was a wait for inside. We chose to a table in the backyard. The wait staff was wonderful; menu terrific; food and drink awesome, enjoyable live music. Only negative was the location and size of the venue. It was in a... More

This place is good from start to finish. From the laid back vibe to the unpretentious and delicious food, Backyard is a winner!! The shrimp and grits are among the top two or three I've ever had. Super creamy grits, sweet perfectly cooked Carolina shrimp, sausage with a mild kick, topped with crunchy green onions. Really spectacular. We also had... More

We really enjoyed our southern breakfast/brunch here. I had the shrimp and grits which was made with kielbasa rather than andouile sausage, making it milder. That suited me fine. My girlfriend had the grilled piemento sandwich, which she liked. It was warm enough to eat outside, and the backyard was very pleasant. The staff was friendly and informative about Hilton... More

Food was excellent all around. Don't miss the shrimp and grits - amazing. Kids burgers were great. Moonshine drinks were quite good. Not a lot of seating and no reservations so get there early!

This is an excellent restaurant in a relaxed casual environment. The backyard is a delightful venue for lunch and dinner. The delicious food is simple traditional southern cuisine with fried green tomatoes, shrimp and grits etc. The staff is warm and welcoming. A very popular choice in Hilton Head for casual and comfortable dining. Lunch, brunch and dinner all great... More

A Lowcountry Backyard is a tiny, laidback cafe-style restaurant, in a convenient setting with a real lowcountry backyard for outdoor dining. I have enjoyed both lunch and dinner here with equal satisfaction. Highly recommend the fresh tomato sandwich and the homemade meatloaf. They even have a wide selection of moonshine to complete the lowcountry ambience! Food is consistently good, servers... More

As an avid Trip Advisor follower, I looked to those reviews for a good family friendly restaurant on the island other than our "usuals" while on the island. We decided on A Lowcountry Backyard and were not disappointed. Our trend while on vacation is to dine early, so we took the recommendations to get there before the crowds. We actually... More

This is seriously one of the best places I've ever eaten. I have got several things from there and they were all amazing. I'm sure this makes me sound like I must be 1000 lbs but my family has actually driven from Jacksonville, FL just to eat here...a few times! Do yourself a favor and get the meatloaf. You won't...
