“"Great food and service."”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 9, 2014

The appetizers that we had were excellent, as well as the service. Our only complaint is that it was extremely cold inside the restaurant. The air conditioner was on and it did not need to be, as it was quite cool outside. We visited mid-March. Unfortunately, it was so cold in the restaurant that we left without eating dinner, which was a shame. We have been there previously and our food was excellent then. My husband had the smokehouse plate (pulled pork, brisket, chicken & ribs) and was very delicious. Everything was cooked to perfection. I had the strip steak which was tender and juicy. Also my steak was cooked to perfection. We will be back again definitely! This is a must go to place in Hilton Head, if you are looking for great food and service. Hopefully, the temperature in the restaurant will be better on our next visit.
