The menu is loaded with amazing variations of favorite southern dishes...especially low country southern dishes. The restaurant itself has a wonderful southern charm, and the staff were great! The mac'n cheese is so, so good. I can personally recommend the fried green tomato BLT (add the pimento cheese...it is a nice addition). The banana pudding was a perfect end to... More

This fab little restaurant is in a shopping center and may make you wonder if it will be OK as you trip between unruly parked cars and uneven walking paths. Don't hesitate. We have been taking guests here for a few years. The fried green tomatoes BLT gets my attention every time. Owned by a husband and wife team, they... More

This small restaurant is one of the best on the island. Friendly staff and great food. The fried green tomatoes are fantastic. The shrimp and grits are the best on the island, offering creamy grits and great flavor.

I had the meatloaf sandwich and my friend had the fish tacos. The portions were large for lunch and quite good. Parking is a bit of a challenge in the little strip mall where this restaurant is located, but the shops surrounding it are cute and worth strolling around if you have the time.

A truly authentic Old South dining experience hidden off of Palmetto Bay Road, with outdoor garden-like seating in addition to indoor dining. Marvelous meatloaf, shrimp and grits, mac and cheese, collards, etc., etc. Founded by a couple who wanted to give diners the experience of good old South Carolina fare from yesteryear, often lost in the myriad of chains and...

This is a gem of a restaurant, located just west of the Sea Pines traffic circle next door to The Red Fish Grill. Wonderful selection of entrees, great presentation and quality. A must if you visit Hilton Head Island.

Everything we (2 adults and 2 kids) ordered for brunch was delicious. The best part though was the outdoor seating, in a lovely garden-like setting with half a dozen fun games (like giant Jenga, a beer pong table, etc.) available for everyone to play. Delightful.

What a great little place. Be careful you don't drive by. It's next to the Smokehouse Restaurant. The potato chip meatloaf sandwich, with caramelized onions on flat bread is absolutely awesome. Wife had salad with grilled shrimp (her MO) and enjoyed it very much. Great atmosphere with friendly service. Will not disappoint.

We eat here frequently for breakfast and lunch, and are never disappointed. Eggs Benedict with crab cake topping is not to be missed. Nice salads at lunch. Pleasant wait staff
