This is the best place I ate in Hilton Head. Call ahead and make a reservation. She does NOT have food sitting around in steam trays. Everything is cooked fresh.

We were driving from Florida to New York and needed to stop for dinner. A lucky google search for an easy stop off of 95 took us to Dye's. We all had the fried chicken which we agreed was perhaps the best fried chicken we've ever had! The butter beans and cornbread were delicious as well. My 11 year old... More

We were spending the night in Ridgeland and decided we wanted to eat someplace that was not a franchise. Dye's Gullah Fixin's sounded like it was worth a try. What a wonderful surprise. We both ordered shrimp and grits and they were delicious. Besides the usual shrimp and grits there were also generous portions of smoked sausage and bacon on... More

Today was our 1st time at this wonderful little restaurant, but it will not be our last. The best shrimp and grits I've ever had. Crab cakes were wonderful, and delicious crab legs. I can't wait for my second trip!

Our family enjoyed a new experience at Dye's Gullah Fixin's. The food is cooked fresh and in low country fashion. The menu consists of a variety of foods enjoyed by local folks since the early days of settlement. Many of the dishes were favourites of the Gullah folk, slaves and freed slaves as I understand it. One of our family... More

We stopped for the lunch buffet on our way back from Hilton Head. The food hit the spot. Full of flavor and perfect for a big Sunday meal. The cornbread is not to be missed!

After 20 years on Hilton Head Island, Dye's restaurant was wiped out by Hurricane Matthew. The Island's loss was Ridgeland's gain. Now open in a small building near the Post Office, Dye's has brought high class delicious country cooking to town. All entrees are freshly prepared, and come to the table so hot you have to let it cool a... More

We used to eat at Dye's restaurant in Hilton Head before it had to close due to hurricane damage. After she moved to Ridgeland, SC, we were able to eat at her new place. Same delicious food! Still the best fried chicken and sweet tea I have ever had. Also love her sides and cornbread. Can't wait to eat here... More

The last hurricane wiped out her home so she closed her restaurant. I loved this place! The food was fresh and really great.

Dye's Gullah Fixin's is the best hidden gem on HHI. This is legit Gullah cuisine at its finest. Not some commercialized, mass produced, soulless "soul food" you will find at other places. I've been to Dye's several times and had menu items as well as the buffet on several occasions. I was never big on sea food until Dye had... More
