Waitress Kim exudes southern hospitality! Great atmosphere in the "backyard" with one man band, bar games while waiting, delicious comfort food and fair value.

This is a BUSY place, we always come here once on our HH vacation. There's always a little wait to get a table, but it's worth the wait. Love their outdoor dining and live music. The shrimp and grits is what keeps bringing us back - it's pretty unique with smoked sausage, but it is oh so good. I also... More

On this, our 5th Hilton Head vacation, we finally made it a point to visit this highly rated restaurant...and now we just wish we had done so sooner! We arrived at 4:30 and were pleased to be seated right away. We were served by friendly staff, and our meals came quickly. Eating outside was pleasant, even on a warm day,... More

There was quite a wait so we went down to the bar. Nice bartender who let us have a table and we ordered food right away. I had the bbq meatloaf which was ok, a bit too much sauce. Burger was great according to my husband.

Friendly staff, great food and warm environment all make for some great reasons to visit A Lowcountry Backyard. We've visited several times over the years and each time we've been treated like old friends. Loved the Bischick as well as the 'Backyard Reunion' and, of course, the shrimp & grits are fantastic. Highly recommend.

We tried this place for lunch based on the reviews. I was surprised we were able to get a seat, because it is quite small. Based on it's popularity, it really should be much bigger. I had the fried green tomato sandwich was was excellent...even though I can't say I am a seasoned fan of FGT's. The mac'n cheese was... More

This was a our first visit at A Lowcountry Backyard. We knew to get there early to avoid a long wait. Our dinners were very good and we both loved the Mac & Cheese! Will try other entrees on our next visit as so many looked good on the menu. Staff and servers were super nice. Hope we can sit... More

I've been here a few other times and enjoyed the meal. This past time, wasn't good at all starting with the old red rice and old lima beans, both weren't fresh at all and spoiled the meal. We ate in the new part which needs work in my opinion, not a good looking place to eat in. One of the... More

Great day at the beach and pool so we worked up an appetite. Again, trusting my fellow travelers, we decided to check this out. We were post-dinner rush but we still had to wait a bit due to the size of our party (5). Once we were seated, servers took our drink and food orders immediately. We knew what we... More

This restaurant was awesome. The atmosphere, food, everything. My husband doesn't eat onions and 90% of the menu has onions and he still said it is the best food in town. You can't go wrong here.
