Dye's is a great place to visit if you want to try original Gullah cuisine. It's similar to southern/lowcountry food. ie. fried chicken, collard greens, grits etc. We called ahead, which is recommended, and made a reservation. Dye's only has seating for limited times. The restaurant is located inside a small mall on the highway. Hard to find, but I... More

We REALLY wanted to go to this restaurant. We heard about it from the hotel staff. We took a nap and were ready to go. Hard to find because it's inside of an Atrium -- we were looking for a store front. No one could tell us where it was. We called, but no answer. Finally found the place and... More

I went to Dye's with 4 people, myself included. I emailed the owner to make a reservation since it was highly recommended on their website. When we went in, the atmosphere was not very welcoming almost hostile. My boyfriend felt the need to leave. We decided to stay and the food was not great. We ordered the seafood hush puppies,...

The best fried chicken I have ever eaten. The collard greens were fabulous, and the cornbread was to die for. So good, it should be illegal. Dye is a wonderful woman and an extremely gifted chef. One should not miss this gem when visiting the island.

Although a little more difficult to figure out when they are serving, we had a great meal. It is out of the ordinary with something for everyone. It is very casual and Dye served us our meal. We emailed for reservations and Dye answered promptly. Please check her website as she might be moving locations due to increase in overhead... More

No, it's not the warmest most inviting atmosphere on the front end. And you need to email to get a reservation. It's a small place. But once you're in, the comfort food is the best you'll find anywhere. The woman can flat out cook. We always leave here more satisfied than any other meal on our vacation. We cannot recall... More

Wonderful food cooked to order. Family handed down recipes. Quality ingredients prepared with care! Fish, chicken, greens and cornbread... Number one on my list for our next visit to Hilton Head! Get some cornbread to go!

I'm really not fussy about service in the grand scheme of things, and if the food is good, I'm willing to cut the service a lot of slack. However, this restaurant is not always open during its posted hours, and takeout orders require a TREMENDOUS amount of notice...like a day ahead. And even then, the proprietor will still often refuse... More

We live in a city with some of the best restaurants in the world, so when we come south we are looking for good southern food. We read many great reviews about Dye's and thought we'd try it out. RESERVATIONS are a must!- not because the casual small restaurant is crowded, but because this is a small family run operation... More

Fantastic southern food and hospitality. Wish we lived closer! Best southern fried chicken ever and the low country boil was great as well.
