I didn't want a heavy, large dinner so ordered the stack of fried green tomatoes as my entree. Fantastic! The dressing added such a nice taste, too. My husband had the shrimp and grits which he also liked very much. I was tickled to see banana pudding on the dessert menu but it was very disappointing. The bananas were firm,... More

My wife and I decided to try Lowcountry out after she heard about it from some friends. Luckily the wait was not long and we were sited outside. They had live music but unlike a lot of places we have been the music was not so loud that you could not hear each other talk. My wife had the Shrimp... More

During our recent stay in Hilton Head we started hearing the buzz about A Lowcountry Backyard and just knew we needed to try it! Our experience was the best that we had in recent years in Hilton Head....fresh, exciting and LUSCIOUS. The Potato Chip Meatloaf Sandwich was to die for ~ a huge portion but an even more impressive taste!... More

You are literally eating in a backyard on the black metal backyard furniture - quaint setting. Food excellent; live country music the night we dined- very nice. They serve moonshine- we didn't dare. We had the grouper Ruben (recommend!) and the Southern Belle salad with tofu- nice flavors! Really good key lime pie! Try this place for something a bit... More

Four of us had dinner this evening. The shrimp and grits meal was just amazing and the added sausage was a treat. Not previously being a grits fan, that changed with these being so creamy and tasty. Wish we had another evening to try something else!

First night on Hilton Head Island and my wife and I wanted to try some fresh seafood. I don't think we made the best of choices. This restaurant had been decently rated and had been included in an article on "The 11 Best Shrimp and Grit Dishes in South Carolina. The restaurant was crowded and we thought that was a... More

We had a wonderful dinner, shrimp and grits were good, as was the potato chip crusted meatloaf. Crab cakes were an 8/10 in my scale,,,needs more lump crabmeat, but had good flavor!

My husband and I started with the crab dip appetizer. It looked delicious, but was to salty. The small slices of pita bread made the appetizer palatable, but the chips took it over the top of being too salty. Our entrees were recommended by the waitress .... shrimp and grits and the chip encrusted meatloaf. The bowl of shrimp and... More

This restaurant is a gem in HHI. It was not easy to find, as it seats behind other business. Once you find it, it's a pleasure to sample the extensive, unique menu. I had the shrimp and grits, which was out of this world. I'm curious about their meat loaf made with potato chips instead of bread crumbs, but that... More
