Hands down the best margaritas on the island! And of course the beautiful view while you eat can't be beat!

We had dinner outside. Margaritas were great. Chips and salsa were delish! We had fajitas which were very good. My hubby's tacos were salty and greasy. Luckily-we had plenty of chips and salsa to keep him happy. Overall, we would recommend.

Chris Jones's Facebook page has all of his current information. He isn't playing regularly at San Miguel's like he used to but he is still playing on Hilton Head at different locations.
