While staying on Hilton Head, we had lunch here. Split a fried green tomato salad and had "crispy oysters". Meal started with delicious fluffy hot biscuits. Salad had thick mozzarella , perfectly done fried green tomatoes , mixed greens, crisp bacon and a great buttermilk dressing. Fresh, sweet Bluffton oysters were in a tempura like batter, perfectly cooked. Excellent service, friendly owner. We stay on HHI twice a year and we will be back here often. Highly recommend!

This restaurant is located in a storefront but the food and service is
excellent. Reservations are a must as space is somewhat limited.

Eat here every year and always great but failed to be good this year. My Veal Saltimbocca was cooked to death. Fried so crisp could hardly cut it with a knife. Very tough and dry. The side of potatoes was lukewarm at best and the mixed vegetables were barely warm.
Crispy Duck was excellent but once again side dishes were a disappointment.
This was a surprise to us because they have always been consistently good to excellent. Will try again next year.

What a great find. The chicken pot pie was one of the best we have ever had. There are alot of specials to choose from we had the chicken crepes and they were so flavorful, and the she crab soup is a must, its is always on the menu and is great with the spices the chef used made so good. It does get quite busy so a reservation may be needed. The service was also very good and it was very busy, don't miss this wonderful place.

Traveling to savannah airport on the back roads from Hilton head we found this gem! Great food-wonderful people. Bar tender Jesse makes a great margarita and has an awesome prescience to boot! The food-risotta pie - mussels were awesome! Chef Charlie is creative with flavored. We sat by the kitchen and everything looked delicious! I'd say this place was even worth the drive from savannah or HH!
