Mixed feelings on this one. Went for a couple of drinks and some small plates one lunchtime.

The chilli was nice but they ruined it by putting the most rancid cheese on the top. It smelled terrible and tasted worse. Why ruin what they call their 'award winning' chilli by sprinkling it with the scrapings from Satan's sock? The Hush puppies were just OK and the service was pretty miserable – the waiter seemed put off by the fact we only wanted 2 small dishes.

Went back one evening and had meatloaf (excellent) and mushroom sliders (just OK – it's mushrooms in small rolls isn't it?). It's a nice place to sit outside at night time although the singer we saw was absolutely blootered! No biggie – especially not in Hilton Head Island – and he could still sing so it was quite entertaining. I would go back but I think they should re-think their menu and decide what it is they want to be. Is it a chill bar with small plates or a restaurant with music and a choice of small/large plates?

Sat on the patio and enjoyed a quiet solo acoustic guitar player/cantor. Beer selections not great, waitress said they were out if half the beers for a while, settled for an IPA, not bad. There are three types of food to order, tiny apps, small meals, large meals. Be careful, my wife orders surf and turf and got about 3oz of steak w/ two 1-2oz crab cakes on a whole plate of grits. She was still hungry afterwards. I ordered fried shrimp platter, was a good meal. Sauces were tasty. Kids meals were average.

This was the first time we had visited Bomboras. We tried their Southern Popcorn which is fried black eyed peas. It was great! I had the meat loaf, mashed potatoes and brown sugar carrots and I felt like I was at home. It was also very tasty. Definitely a must go to when you are in Hilton Head.

Michele provided us with wonderful service for an enjoyable lunch outside on their patio. The seafood gumbo was wonderful, as were the pork sliders. Our waitress was great. We'd ordered a bottle of wine, and she brought a sample first. Good thing, as we didn't care for our first selection, but her recommendation was fantastic. We will be back. So nice to have a selection of food that isn't pizza and burgers!

Very disappointed with our experience. Our server was very distant. Took our orders and that was it. We were sitting on the patio late afternoon. When we arrived we were not given a choice of where to sit even though there weren't many people outside yet. We struggled with the sun. Overall experience was not good.
