Yes, the wait was long. Did not wait the first night, but went back second night of trip. Ended up waiting a bit at the backyard bar seating-enjoyed the crab dip and joking with waitress Kim. Table was ready in an hour, but were enjoying where we were sitting and talking to Kim, so stayed at the bar area for... More

The live music and quirky décor makes this a very cute place to dine with family and friends. We really enjoyed the ambiance and the service was absolutely wonderful. We waited a little over an hour for a table, but found the experience to be well worth it. The food was well prepared and extremely tasty. The moonshine drinks were... More

Was concerned that we'd have an over an hour wait but when we went over to the bar, the friendliest bartender there told us we could eat right there. Fried tomatoes, fantastic. Pan trout over cheese grits out of this world. Got to try the moonshine drinks. Highly recommend the honeysuckle moonshine. GREAT overall!!!

We showed up on a Wednesday for lunch and didn't have to wait. The backyard setting was very nice and the large portable air conditioner outside was a great addition on a very hot day. The large umbrella over the backyard kept us sheltered from the sun and the rain which both showed up during our visit. Our waitress was... More

Even if the food had been terrible, the atmosphere alone was worth the trip. But, the food, along with the atmosphere was excellent. This is one of my new favorite places in Hilton Head. The service could have been a little better. I waited a little longer than I like to for a drink, but overall, it was a great... More

Our family arrived close to 6:00 PM and had about an 85 minute wait. We took advantage of the texting option and it worked great! All 5 of us tried something different and all dishes were good although I think the meatloaf was the best. I also have to comment on the children's menu because my daughter was thrilled to... More

OK, so we did wait for just over one hour but we found some shade, had some cold drinks and played games in the "backyard." We had a fried tomato virgin with us and he discovered his new crush here. The secret? Panko bread crumbs......thanks Amy. Our dinner was delicious, the BBQ was good, the shrimp and grits were excellent... More

We came for an early dinner one night because we heard they got busy. The food was very good but we felt we were rushed. The waitress had our bill on the table before we were finished eating. The prices are high enough we wanted to stay longer and enjoy the meal but didn't.
