Description: 12 miles of pristine coastline, and Tiki Hut is the only place to drink on the beach in Hilton Head Island. Equal parts local hideaway and the place to be, Tiki Hut offers 365 days of live music a year, with two different acts per day. The music calendar is curated with an eye for detail and an ear for guest preference. In a given week, musical acts range from reggae and funk, to country and top 40 cover bands. The expansion of Tiki Hut includes more cover - the hut itself has been expanded to twice its capacity. The space - open to guests for socializing, relaxing, and watching the pros play volleyball - hosts monthly themed Full Moon Parties and multi-day holiday events right on the beach. Guests enjoy the only toes in the sand, drinks in hand experience on Hilton Head Island, served by a famous crew of bartenders, some of whom have eclipsed their 20th anniversary behind the bar. Nosh on locally-sourced bar food from Chef Tim Nelson, who oversees Beach House's F&B operations. Iconic since 1977, a visit to Tiki Hut is not complete without taking home a shirt and bragging rights that you were here.

We arrived at the Beach House on Sunday, October 6 around 3:30 in the afternoon. After unpacking we decided to head to the beach and then grab a bite to eat. It took a while to get someone to wait on us , but once we alerted a gentleman that we wanted to order he quickly found us a waitress. The food and drinks we ordered were very good and arrived in a timely manner. I would definitely recommend it if you want a quicknmealnan ddont want to leave the pool.

Thanks for writing your review and I’m sorry that it initially took some time to get your order taken but I’m glad that you ended up getting good service and that you enjoyed the food and drinks. I personally think that we have some of the best hamburgers on the island and it certainly is easy to grab a bite to eat without leaving the beach or pool area.

I hope you visit again and have a great day.
