“Annie O's- A Great gem on HHI”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2012 via mobile

Absolutely loved this place! From the very warm reception when we arrived, to the beyond flavorful menu- this restaurant is exceptional. Every employee made us feel welcome, and they were very friendly and attentive. The menu choices were plentiful, but not overwhelming. we had the shrimp salad appetizer. It is made with South Carolina shrimp and has a simple, fresh taste. I ordered the pulled pork. It was fall-off-the bone tender and seasoned perfectly. The creamed corn was delicious. My dinner partner ordered the fried chicken, which was to die for! It was delicious and not at all greasy. The Mac-n-cheese was unique and made with a white cheese that was out of this world. Annie O's is a great restaurant if you are looking for an alternative to the all-seafood restaurants on Hilton Head. One side note that grabbed my attention is that Annie O's supports a local animal rescue group. As an active volunteer in animal rescue, this made a big impact on me. Annie O's is definitely on my "favorites" list!!

“"Great food, reasonable prices"”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2012

The menu had many choices with great prices. The service was friendly and helpfull. We ordered the fried chicken and the pork shoulder. I had mac & chz with collards and she had carrots & creamed corn for sides. Everything came out hot and tasted great. Nothing was greasy or to spicy. The total meal with entrees & drinks was perfect for under $40. In Hilton Head it is nice to have a simple meal on the south end of the island with not a long wait in the summer. This restaurant was perfect for what we wanted.

“Fair Fare”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 3, 2012

We visited Annie O's last week while we were staying at HHI. I had the fried chicken, creamed corn and hash brown cassrole. The chicken was crispy but wasn't all that tasty. The corn had no flavor and cassrole was ok. My husband had the fish. The food was decent but not anything to go crazy over. The place has a greasy smell when you walk in the door and that was a turn off. The waitress was pleasant and prompt. Our food came quickly. We would return but not get something fried.

“Horrible Service, Mediocre Food”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed July 3, 2012

We heard the food was great but to me it was average at best. Don't expect to get anything healthy there. The fried chicken was okay but no food is worth waiting over an hour for with an incredibly rude waitress. I'd love to give this restaurant a chance but they need to get rid of the blond waitress. The children's burgers were awful, burnt and hard. We will not be back.

“This place blows”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed July 3, 2012 via mobile

Horrible, horrible place. We had a party with three small children. It took well over an hour from placing the order until we received the food. Not even an apology. Excuse 1 from the rude waitress " it takes 18 minutes to make fried chicken". Well, what about the other 50 minutes. Excuse 2 "this isn't a kids Restuarant". So tell me, why do you have crayons and kids menus. When the food came out one of the kids had a burger burnt to a crisp and as hard as a hockey puck. They weren't even busy. Hilton Head has many excellent restaurants, this isn't one of them. Bad food and bad service equals bad restaurant.
