Dye is amazing

I loved eating here and meeting Dye. She is a real gem. The food is good and made with love. I ate here twice, in large part because I loved talking to the owner. Check this place out!

Seriously, if you don't have reservations, even if the place is only partially full, you will be treated like a second class citizen. We were made to wait 30 minutes while looking at plenty of open seats and not attended to throughout the meal. The food had potential, but the pork chops were thin and overcooked. The shrimp and grits... More

The restaurant is small and tucked away in what looks like an office building, but don't be put off. It was the most delicious meal we had during our entire week on Hilton Head. Everything was very fresh and home cooked, from the lemonade to the hush puppies to the butter beans. Call and make a reservation and you won't... More

First know I seldom write a review. I could not in good conscience, not write this one. It was because of the EXCELLENT FOOD REVIEWS that we were led to this restaurant and jumped to make reservations. Our visit to Dye's Gullah Fixin's was not like any of the "excellent" reviews we had seen on the website. TRULY DISSAPOINTED! The... More

This small restaurant makes me wish I was born and raised in the south! Every dish i sampled was delicious - real home-style, southern comfort food.

My kids and I stopped by for lunch. Although there was a limited lunch menu, the fried chicken was available which is what we went for. The fried chicken was worth the wait! And the collard greens were the best that I've ever had. I appreciate the fact that Dye uses organic chicken and really fresh vegetables. It's a small... More

If you love southern food, this is where you go. The shrimp deviled eggs were outstanding. We had perfect crab cakes, crab and shrimp stuffed flounder, collard greens, mac and cheese, field peas, and peach dump desert. Be extra nice when trying to make the required reservations, and you may get in.

Came across Dye's Gullah while on Hilton Head Island. The Gullah cuisine sounded very reminiscent of my native Louisiana Creole, so needed to give it a try. It's in a fairly nondescript commercial building that looks like it (or rather most of its tenants) has seen better days. We weren't sure Dye's was even open, but we popped in anyway,... More

Made the effort to get a reservation and drive to the restaurant. They only had fried chicken and fixins for the buffet at $18.99 a head...that would've been the price for my 2 yr old to eat too. We were shocked that they only had chicken when the website promised to much more. We decided to talk it over and... More

I always thought it was strange that on HHI there is not many restaurants that serve up true low country cooking. Look no further. This is true and fresh low county cooking. The fried chicken is heavenly. Be warned - it is hard to find, not a fancy place, and has limited hours, but it is worth it.
