“An atmospheric respite from the tourist bustle.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 3, 2013 via mobile

Located just off the road to the Parkway in a village of owner operated boutiques, the Lowcountry Backyard feels like the family run cafe it is. The food was great, the service friendly, and we enjoyed the cozy view of the courtyard and the LED stars (or fireflies, depending on who you ask) in the ceiling.

“Lovely service, great food, sweet ambiance”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 31, 2013

This place has a charm that is hard to describe in words. It is low key and certainly low cost,yet you just feel good being there. It was a bit too cold to sit in the backyard, but the interior is also nice. It's a small space with a kind of rustic look and interesting boards on the walls with down home kind of sayings.
Our server was so pleasant and helpful. The menu doesn't have a zillion choices, but some of the southern cuisine was unfamiliar to me, being a northerner. I tried collard greens for the first time - not my favourite, but not bad. My wife had a huge salad, some of which I shared, and it was delicious,especially the raspberry vinaigrette dressing. I had baked chicken with the aforementioned collard greens and some thick and creamy mac and cheese. We were stuffed and the bill was just over $25 including tax and tip. We really enjoyed it and will try to go back before we leave Hilton Head.

“Best brunch on HHI”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 30, 2013 via mobile

LCBY serves brunch on Saturday & Sunday. If weather permits the outside "backyard" is very quaint. Regardless of where you sit though, the food & service are always great! Best biscuits & gravy, I have ever had! Love it & can't wait to go back!

“Great Lunch”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 27, 2013

We had a lunch that consisted of a fried green tomato stack, meat loaf sandwich, and the kidney bean salad. The food was very good, service excellent and the atmosphere kitschy. Highly recommend this local favorite for a relaxed casual meal.

“Still My Favorite”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 25, 2013

My favorite on Hilton Head, one of my top five anywhere. The people are lovely, the food is authentic and fabulous. I'm not sure I will ever eat shrimp and grits anywhere else, ever again. They were that good. Best fried green tomatoes on the Ialand. Fish and chips were excellent. The desserts are always great.
