Good food, long wait...but I'll be back.

First, I was prepared for the wait. We got there at 4:45 and waited about an hour. Luckily, the heat wasn't too bad. If it was, no food is good enough for me to wait OUTSIDE in the southern summer heat. I also had two toddlers with me and almost bailed several times. I promised myself I wouldn't... read more

We went to the Sea Shack at lunchtime to avoid the long line. We only waited about 5 minutes and it was wonderful food! My husband had the tuna steak grilled and he loved it! I had the Red Snapper blackened and it was great. You get your choice of two sides. I picked cheese grits which were wonderful and... More

We just came to The Sea Shack, and I feel strongly that folks on Trip Advisor should know that if you have a disability or a handicap this place will basically tell you to go to hell. My elderly father who has his leg in a cast was trying to come in out of the heat and sit down in... More

When we go to Hilton Head, we eat here everytime! This time we rode our bikes and got there around 4:30. Because it opens at 5:00, we knew to go early and try to beat the rush. My husband was about 10th in line. We left there on our bikes with our food and loved every mouthful once again.

First, you must know that you're more than likely going to wait in a pretty extensive line. Or else you'll arrive early. . . and wait for the door to open. But, fret not. The folks there are quite friendly. The Sea Shack staff are use to long lines, and one of them will come outside and get a scouting... More

The food was good & the prices were better comparatively speaking. My favorite was the blueberry key lime pie. The wait was over an hour, which was a bit much in the heat.

We've been eating at the Sea Shack while on vacation on HHI for many years. It's a different type of place in that it's small, the ambiance is null, and the line is usually VERY long (unless you get there before it opens). But the seafood, sides, and prices are very good. We prefer our food prepared lightly blackened.

We knew what to expect with the line, the limited seating, the plastic ware, etc, but we anticipated the really good food everyone raves about. We didn't find that - the food was okay - but the service/hospitality was exceptionally poor. We ate at the end of the lunch shift so the staff was understandably ready to leave, but broom... More
