We had another wonderful dinner at Lowcountry Backyard! We had the flounder on a chive and cheddar grit cake which was a great combination. I would highly recommend to anyone coming to the island especially families as they have games and a swing in the back to entertain the kids.

While the restaurant is small and doesn't look impressive, don't let the initial impression fool you. This place is great. Try the meatloaf with the moonshine barbecue sauce or try the shrimp and grits or the backyard reunion. If you like great southern food, this is the place. And if you're gluten sensitive like my daughter, this place is perfect!!!... More

Delicious food, awesome service, and an atmosphere that made you want to linger for awhile. Try the grits; they are amazing! Will definitely return.

We visit Hilton Head fairly often (it's only about 3 1/2 hours), and we rarely skip this restaurant. Service is great, and I've never eaten anything here that wasn't very good. It's not real big, though--be prepared to wait at peak times.

Very good, authentic low country food. Pleasant ambiance and attentive staff. Kitchen is small and everything is prepared made to order to food service was sloooow. But in the end worth the wait.

We went for brunch mostly because of the reviews here. We had the crab cake sandwich and a breakfast entree. Both were delicious! Key lime pie for dessert was amazing. Can't wait to try for dinner sometime.

Stopped here for lunch. The restaurant is adorably decorated. Our server was super friendly and welcoming. Food took awhile to arrive, but that's because they obviously care about preparation, presentation and food quality. Easily the best meal we had all week. Ok for kids if they are well behaved in restaurants.

I love this place! We ate here on the first trip to Hilton head island last year and made sure it was on deck this year too! I had the shrimp and grits- amazing - I don't like the sausage but it was easy to avoid. The portion was also quite large. My kids had the French toast on the... More

The wait is long but well worth it, and also not unpleasant. There is a nice bar and live music that perfectly fits the atmosphere. The staff are all friendly and helpful. The best thing though, is the food. I had the shrimp and grits, and it was the best I ever had, Everybody at the table was equally impressed... More
