Where to dine with a one-year old?

We are going to HHI in April and we have a 1 year old. What are some really good places to eat that are "kid friendly"? I don't really mean that these places should have good food for kids or entertainment for them. I just mean places that have great food and would be appropriate to take a child.

I know there are some very nice places to eat in HH, but I don't know which ones will meet our needs. Thanks!

I live on Hilton Head. I would recommend a restaurant called Catch 22 on New Orleans Drive on the south end of Hilton Head. Although they do not have a children's menu they will make pasta, etc for children. They are upscale with excellent seafood and other dishes. I would suggest reservations.

Hemmingways at Palmetto Bay Marina has indoor and outdoor dining, I would recommend outdoor dining. More casual than Catch 22, varied menu. Nice view of Broad Creek and passing boats, outdoors allows children a little freedom.

Crazy Crab on Hwy 278, north end of the island has seafood, mostly fried type. There are always a lot of children there. I don't think the food is that great but a lot of people seem to like it.

I would avoid Hudson's which seems to appeal to the tourists and cater to children......food is not recommended. Locals don't go. I would avoid The Sage Room, Old Fort Pub, CQ's which are some of our top restaurants but not kid friendly.

I would suggest you pick up one of the free restaurant guides when you arrive. They list menus, etc with phone numbers.

I like the Crazy Crab at the north end of the island as you can sit outside over the marsh and the view is lovely; the shrimp salad and seafood salad is great, and it comes with hush puppies. In addition, there is a sandy area and playground just below the outdoor terrace where you eat ; so, in case you need to move the little one around before, during, or after eating, you can slip down there.
