Came here with friends for dinner and had an absolutely great meal! That coupled with great service made for a very enjoyable evening. We did not have any starters but our waiter brought us some fantastic breads and pork rinds (they are addictive!) and also brought some gluten free breads for my wife who has celiacs. For mains, our party... More

Dinner for 2 on the veranda before dusk. One of the best views on the Island. Food and service to match. Pulled pork and pork spare ribs were excellent. Fine service from our waiter, William.

Went on a golf trip with 7 other men and we all agreed this was the best we had. The skillet Corn Bread is worth the trip by itself. The Crab Cakes, Pork Ribs, and Pulled pork got rave reviews by everyone who tried them.

Our attendant was Christina and she did a wonderful job and was very helpful and had a pleasant sense of humor. We were not rushed and the food came out warm and delicious. The manager visited us to... More

Live Oak was our favorite when we visited here 2 years ago. I really expected that we would find another favorite this year, but I was wrong again. Christopher H. was a great help in our selections. My wife had what she referred to as the best chicken fried steak ever. I had a filet that was tender and tasty.... More

A lovely country club dining room with a friendly, relaxed atmosphere. Outside veranda overlooks the golf course and the views are so peaceful. Food and service were excellent. I had Mahi and it couldn't have been better. I was celebrating my birthday and the host sent over a chocolate fudge cake, which was amazing, to complete a lovely evening. Perfect... More

Very beautiful decor, layout , and setting: overlooking the Sea Pines Resort Courses. Delicious fresh local food and always wonderful service. This trip we enjoyed the Happy Hour Specials at the Bar, with Sam the bartender,who was most helpful and friendly.
