Lowcountry Boil in Hilton Head?

Does anyone know of any restaurants that offer a Lowcountry boil in Hilton Head? We will be there in June and would love to enjoy one while we are there. Thanks in advance for any replies :)

Low Country Boil is listed on the menu at Skull Creek Boathouse for $17.75.

Enjoy.

If you have a kitchen and don't mind cooking its a very easy dish to make.

Also you may see it on the menu at other places, it goes by several names, Frogmore Stew, Beaufort Boil, etc.

You can get it at steamers...but it's not great. I believe low country backyard has it as well...maybe it was a special.

If you do choose to make it yourself, boil your potatoes alone first until they're almost fully cooked, then sausage, corn and shell fish LAST. My biggest complaint about Lowcountry boil is when people cook the shell fish too long and it's rubbery.

I think doing it ourselves could be fun. The condo we rented has a gas grill so I could use the gas tank. I'd just need a 50 gallon pot or so and a burner. I bet Walmart or someone would have those. I assume getting fresh seafood would be easy as well on Hilton Head...

How many people you feeding? Turkey Fryer size in my head is still HUGE! but if you've got a family then maybe so. I can feed about 3-4 with my big "stock" pot that goes on the stove.

The Pig down in Coligny has local seafood and pretty good prices, Fresh Market also carries local but is usually alittle bit more (although they do urn specials)

There's also a number of folks that sell shrimp on the side of the road, be nice and friendly and you can get a good deal there.
