The service was great, the food was delectable and the employees were so nice! We ate there twice because it was THAT good! The first night Hennie was my server and she was personable & fun. Chris served us at the bar & the service was so quick! Definitely recommend to anyone going to the island! Great southern comfort food! :)

Went on a Monday night with a party of 8 - four adults, two teens and two kids. We were seated promptly and our server Alex took our drink orders right away. He was very attentive and personable and good with the younger kids. Drinks were quick to come back out and our food, for a party of 8 was incredibly fast. Our orders ranged from kids menu items to full steak dinners - portion sizes were generous, cooked well and were so delicious that everyone cleaned their plate. Our friends from New England that were vacationing with us, couldn't say enough good things about the meal and service - for them, it was step up from what they were used to. The steaks were hand cut onsite and it showed. The bill with tip was around $125 - excellent value for the quality. The atmosphere added to the overall experience and was very inviting and relaxing. Found this place and its great reviews through Trip Advisor and once again the reviews were spot on. Will visit this place again on our next visit to Hilton Head.

Had the ribs, very well prepared. Great taste. Also tried the wings, grilled with mild sauce. These were actually very good and very well cooked. Being from Texas, I had a pretty high standard for BBQ and this restaurant measured up. I would definitely come back. The atmosphere is great, waitress was very attentive and did a great job. Although the meat did not have the same smokey taste that we are accustomed to, it had a great taste and texture.

One odd comment, we heard the couple behind us try to order coffee. They wouldn't make any.......don't make it in the evening. How odd. As a result, when it came time for dessert, we did not even look at the menu. We ALWAYS order coffee with dessert, no coffee, no dessert. Given the high margin on coffee, I can never understand why a restaurant doesn't have GREAT coffee. If anyone from the restaurant happens to read this review, either the waitress needs training, or you should re-think your coffee policy.

We went in for Sunday brunch, which is always a great value at the smokehouse. We sat at the bar where Tommy took great care of us even though the bar was full. I loved the egg sandwich and the pulled pork is our favorite on the island.
