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

Went twice over a 4 night stay. Great home cooked food full of flavor. Staff is great. Maggie was our awesome server. Owners should be so proud. Try shrimp and grits, banana pudding, fried green tomatoes and crab soup. Good entertainment and cocktails. Authentic. Loved it. Try it.

Went for breakfast today, ordered biscuits & gravy my wife ordered a bowl of fruit and side of bacon. Biscuits and gravy were luke warm and my wife's bacon was dripping with grease. .Also a lot of flies in the restaurant not real appetizing. Would not recommend.

We have been coming to Lowcountry Backyard for many years now. It is on our must visit restaurant list. We have enjoyed large family meals there and romantic dinners for just the two of us. Brunch is great too! They do stay fairly busy, but they move through the wait list quickly. Refreshments available while you wait.

This will not be about the wait as we expect a wait at a Vacation destination poplar eatery.....and we did wait. We waited 30 minutes- they have a great phone app whereby you can check your wait-time- and were checked by the only pleasant/cheerful staff we saw that night. The Hostess- sorry we didn't get her name but she had... More

Another "must eat" location on Hilton Head and one of our favorite places. Food was excellent and so much fun to sit outside. Games for kids and adults, great bar, and good music.
