The only toes in the sand, drinks in hand experience on Hilton Head—Tiki Hut is the island's best beach bar. There's no show like a Tiki Hut show. Talented musicians from all over the country take the stage nearly every day, all year long and dancing is highly encouraged. What's a beach vacation without fruity cocktails and ice-cold beer? Tiki Hut serves domestic, craft and seasonal beer and signature cocktails frozen or on the rocks from the island's favorite bartenders. An enticing food menu offers selections like hot wings, fresh salads, pimento cheeseburgers and pulled pork nachos. A beach volleyball court sits out back and the ocean waves are just steps away. With live music, southern comfort

...why not visit? Food was fine. Service good, as well. They DO have live music and that's always a plus, well, unless the talent...sucks. I'd come back.

The atmosphere was so relaxed yet professional. We ordered food and drink, all were great. The band was very engaging with the crowd. The music was varied so that there were something for most anyone.

Had a burger and pizza plus a drink, was so easy to walk up from beach and order. Food was good and drink even better, bartender super nice. Visited again the next day.

This bar stays packed, and with good reason. Knowledgeable and friendly bartenders who move fast but keep a smile on their faces. The frozen drinks are spot on, and the craft beer selection is surprisingly diverse. Don't miss.More

We were staying here so the place was easy to get to and the music was great. The food was cooked next door at the hotels' restaurant but was OK. A little pricy, even for bar food and the wait was a bit longer than...normal.More

Staying in our RV in Hilton Head, and needed get my Tiki Bar fix. This one was easier to locate than a couple others on the island (they are difficult to get to) and closer to us. We had a couple of drinks and my...wife ordered something to graze on. Nice views of the beach and also nice to have some live music. The food is fine - I assume they cater it in from the hotel and it comes to you in a tin lunch box which is a little different. It was real busy when we arrived and the staff were stretched, so if you're in a hurry pick a time when it quietens down a bit, maybe mid-late afternoon. I read a couple of poor reviews about the service but as a bar owner myself I know just how difficult it has been for all of us in the hospitality industry during the pandemic to maintain staff and also cope with supply shortages, so just ignore those with little patience and enjoy a nice afternoon chillin' on the beach with a suitable cocktail!More

The location is great for beach goers that just want easy drinks from the walk up bar side. For folks that want a decent quick bite, look elsewhere. The one server was just too busy to be attentive to all the tables. She was doing...her best. She did remove tacos from my bill that took 30 plus minutes to arrive. Don't expect craft cocktails. Stick to beer, shots and simple cocktails (eg jack and coke, vodka cranberry, etc). Your day will go much better.More

We sat for 30minutes and never served. We were not alone. Four tables near us had the same issue. There was one waitress working extremely hard trying to manage two out of three of the restaurant seating areas but she never made it to ours....We were impressed by her work ethic. She deserves a raise! We eventually went to the bar and ordered a drink, then made our way a short distance up the road toThe Sandbox. We were served within one minute!More
