Roastfish and Cornbread is among the best restaurants on Hilton Head Island. It is not a "white tablecloth" restaurant, but rather a super casual, funky place owned and run by a chef who truly cares about the Gullah heritage he represents. Chef David's food is...More

A unique dining experience on HHI! Creative menu and decor. The blackened fish was delicious and spicy! David (owner/chef) was very accommodating to special requests. The servers are down home people, but not as professional as other restaurants.
