“Surprising Hilton Head IslandTreat!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 10, 2013

We had a wonderful lunch outside, it didn't hurt that it was almost 80 degrees in January! My Mom and I enjoyed the crab cake sandwich and my Dad got the burger. The setting outside was wonderful and cutesy, lots to look at while we dined. Food was very good. We ordered some of the homemade banana pudding that they served in cute mason jars, it was absolutely wonderful. Overall it was unexpectedly a great little hidden treasure. Our waitress was friendly and helpful.

“Not overly impressed.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 9, 2013

Having read the reviews we were looking forward to dining at this restaurant. Perhaps it was an off night in January,. We ate inside and my husband had the Potato Chip Meatloaf and I had Shrimp and Grits. It was good but not great. Again, perhaps it was just an off night. The restaurant was not crowded and it seemed to lack atmosphere, Would give it a second try as so many of the reviews were favorable but I can't say it was all that great.

“Highlight of Restaurant Week”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 6, 2013

My wife and I spent a week sampling Hilton Head's finest during restaurant week. Our hands down favorite is Lowcountry Backyard. We selected the Lowcountry sampler - Sauteed shrimp, smoked sausage with blackened Grouper and the Backyard Sampler = Potato Chip Meatloaf, Bischick, Shrimp & Grits served with Collard Greens. The meatloaf and Bischick were true comfort food of the highest quality. The seafood was fresh and perfectly cooked/seasoned. Our waitress was friendly, consultative and attentive. We shall return.

“Best brunch on the island”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 4, 2013

Come here for an amazing brunch! The grits are creamy, the french toast melts in your mouth, and they have cozy inside and outside seating.

Went here for the first time for brunch and can't wait to go back this weekend! I wish they served brunch everyday. This blows away every other breakfast restaurant on the island.

“An atmospheric respite from the tourist bustle.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 3, 2013

Located just off the road to the Parkway in a village of owner operated boutiques, the Lowcountry Backyard feels like the family run cafe it is. The food was great, the service friendly, and we enjoyed the cozy view of the courtyard and the LED stars (or fireflies, depending on who you ask) in the ceiling.
