Good, fun meal with the kiddos.

We spent the same amount on our bill as we did at San Miguel's but enjoyed very good food instead of the "just okay" Mexican grub. They accept reservations so you should take advantage of that, especially if you plan on eating later in the evening. The crab legs were great and the kids menu options... read more

Our family ended our week at Hilton Head with dinner at this lovely restaurant. The atmosphere was great..the service terrific. .and the food was delicious! Our girls got the crab legs and said they were perfectly cooked! They each had three orders so they must have been pretty good for sure. The appetizers were yummy...onion rings, cheese dip with wonderful... More

We made reservation for Sunday evening for party of 16. We were seated immediately but were surprised to find out we could not be served mixed drinks on a Sunday. We did however order wine. I had a delicious lobster salad sandwich and most of our party ordered sandwiches which were very good. However there was a problem with service.... More

Food was very tasty. Service was a little slow but acceptable. Prices were a little high, but that's expected when you're on vacation. A good choice.

Love going here for the all you can eat crab legs. Service is great. No liquor license on Sunday - only beer and wine.

When we entered, it immediately smelled like fish (the bad kind) and the floor was extremely sticky. The service was good, staff was friendly and the beer was cold. Food was just ok...nothing special. My lobster was chewy and very fishy tasting (again, not the good kind).

The food and service is very good. It is a favorite with locals and visitors as well. We go often for a casual evening or good, reasonably priced food. If you like all you can eat crab claws, it is a great winner.

We stopped in this restaurant sort of by chance on the way into HHI for our first trip (long drive, cranky 2yr old, first thing found on Yelp)...and we've gone back 2-3x/wk on each annual trip since then. It is a neighborhood bar and restaurant...very common to see the same people when you go and the staff knows many of... More
