“Not What I Expected...”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 29, 2012

Have heard lots of great things about this restaurant, but have to admit I was a little disappointed. We got there around 8 pm or later for dinner. The patio looked nice, but there was no table available, so we sat inside. Our server seemed rushed and busy, but should have and could have been more attentive and personable. We asked for a booster seat. Not only did she not bring one, but we were almost finished eating before she came over to say that there was not an available one! I am allergic to pork and there seemed to be alot of pork items on the menu, which was a little strange. My order was wrong, other servers were attending our table...food was ok..so again, I was a bit disappointed!

“Best Eats on HHI”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 26, 2012

Was recommended by a good friend and it lived up to all our expectations. Shrimp and Grits are ridiculously good and the entrees for my wife and kids went over great as well. The service and servers were outstanding and very personable. The outside patio seating has great ambiance. Can guarantee you every visit to the island will always include a stop here.

“A Gem on Hilton Head Island”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 26, 2012

The restaurant is a little hard to find. But, persevere and you (like us) will be glad that you did. The restaurant is hidden (as it seems all commercial businesses are on Hilton Head Island) down a short driveway and the entrance is very unimposing. But once you enter, the backyard courtyard opens up and there are enough tables so that early dining (and you should get there early) in the warm early evening air is a definite possibility. Of course there are inside tables as well. The food is excellent and the service is friendly and courteous. My wife and I shared the Warm Crab Dip appetizer and then moved on to the Crab Cake entree. Both were superb. We paired this with a bottle of Pino Grigio and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. For dessert we had the Banana Grit Pudding (we could have licked the dish). Overall a wonderful experience and a place that we will definitely visit again on our next trip to Hilton Head.

“Wonderful!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 25, 2012

A great meal and such very nice servers. We went by ourselves during a family trip and had a good time. They have a patio area that looked very nice but we ate inside because it was raining.
