This place can be hard to find, but the owner has been on Martha Stewart 3 times for his food. real spices, food just like they have been making it for 200 years. a bit expensive, but a real adventure in the Lowcountry

18 of us chose Gullah Grub for supper while camping at nearby Hunting Island State Park. The restaurant normally closes at 5:30, but stayed open just for us! Sweet grass basket artist Jery Taylor was there, showed us her beautiful baskets and even helped with waitressing duties. Even though some of the orders were slow coming out of the kitchen,... More

We stopped here for lunch and were entranced by the local artwork and the videos featuring the chef/owner and his recipes. My husband had the BBQ chicken--some of the best I've ever tried. The macaroni and cheese looked strange, but it was delicious. I had red rice, a dish I'd never had before, and found it delicious, with a mysterious... More

The chef/owner was locking up when we arrived, but he opened the door and let the two of us in for dinner, though no one else was left in the place. He and his wife (I assume) were exceptionally hospitable, taking the time to talk with us at length. The cornbread was absolutely superb, the soups (shrimp gumbo and she-crab)... More

After numerous trips to Beaufort and the Sea Islands, we decided to finally stop in here for lunch. The lady sweeping out back where we parked greeted up with a kind smile and thanked us for coming. Upon entering the establishment, we were greeted by a lethargic older waitress, unsure if she had Gullah roots or not. We picked our... More

We detoured to St. Helena Island on our way to Hilton Head to try this place. It was a unique experience: Unpretentious setting in an old building, friendly but slow paced service, and food that was authentic and good, but not the best Gullah cuisine we've ever tried. We had the shrimp gumbo and the lowcounty crab soup dinner that... More

We decided to try this place out. Its kinda like eating in someones home, dont expect the service to be quick and dont expect refills.the food was pretty good (comfort food) but dont be tricked by anyone saying "you wanna taste this?" If you taste it, you get charged for it! It was an experience.

We wanted to experience some gullah cuisine. So we journeyed to St Helena Island, where we were told that a large gullah community existed. The first restaraunt we found, that was advertised as a gullah restaraunt appeared to be all white. (I am under the assumption that the gullah are black). The next restaraunt was closed, but there was a... More

I found a review of this restaurant in a food magazine and determined that I would find it when in South Carolina...Bill Green is the owner and chef, and he is teaching his son to cook in the Gullah tradition. If you can, be sure to find Bill himself, and chat with him a few minutes...a great experience you won't... More

While visiting Penn Center, top your trip off by eating at Gullah Grub. The staff is family and you are served like you are too! The ribs I had with collard greens and red rice were smoked to perfection and fell off the bone. The creole was also delicious but the ribs!!!- to die for. Local artwork worth purchasing is... More
