Very nice restaurant overlooking the golf course. From our seats outdoors we could see and fairly large alligator resting on one of the tee boxes a short distance away. Very nice view! The food was very good, but the Gumbo stole the show! I would go back and just have a bowl of the gumbo instead of the small cup... More

Had a wonderful lunch sitting outside on the porch. The food was delicious and the view was incredible. The service by Terry-Ann was top notch. We wish her the best of luck and hope to see her again next summer.

I am a local and this location has always housed a sub-standard restaurant. Following it's recent renovation by The Sea Pines Resort, Live Oak has become one of my favorite restaurants for lunch. The setting is calm and relaxing with both indoor and outdoor seating, the servers are attentive and the food is delicious. My favorite is the goat cheese... More

We ate brunch and dinner several times in this restaurant and the food was wonderful. The specially drinks were fun. Ever meal turned out to be very good and the service was very good. They have a good selection of wines. The view is just beautiful and the restaurant is just what you would choose for a lovely meal.

View was fantastic. Service (our server was James) could not have been better. Knowledgeable, friendly, perfect level of attention. Good choices on the menu, well prepared and perfect for a warm summer night. might be our favorite spot now in HH. Looking forward to returning.

Dee Dee was our server for the evening and was very knowledgeable and attentive. The food was very good and the view fabulous. The wine list was extensive and specialty drinks were very nice. We will dine here again.

Limited menu but gorgeous "vista"!!! Only have dined outside and or drink only. Staff is friendly but service is slow. Consider it a great place for drinks...lots of options for dinner in Sea Pines. Not sure we will have dinner there, again.
