I have always heard great things about this place from friends so was excited to visit. Great place to shop, eat, or have a drink. I definitely want to go back next time I am in Hilton Head.

This was our 2nd visit here, and it was just as good as the first. We had a ridiculously long wait - 2 hours - but our kids insisted on waiting. We shopped (and bought the requisite salty dog tshirts for everyone in the family), strolled, and sat until we were finally seated. The service was quick and friendly, the food was great, and the atmosphere was fantastic. We had the hush puppies (best ever) and the flounder sandwich (very good). My husband had the shrimp and grits which were very rich but he said they were fantastic. We'll come back here again on our next visit.

This place was so much fun. If you want fish this is it - anyway you want it. Delicious Key Lime Pie as well. We went for lunch and walked around the shops afterward. My husband (who hates to shop) even had fun.

I thought this was going to be a tourist trap. Maybe it was, but we had a fabulous wait staff that made us feel like we were the only people in the restaurant. Food was good and the atmosphere at South Beach is great. Definitely need to go when you are on HHI.

Classic spot on Hilton Head. Expect $5 fee to get into Sea Pines if you are not staying in this area.
Cute location and atmosphere. Good burgers, boiled shrimp or crab cake sandwich. Their scalloped potatoes side dish is wonderful! Beware the calypso shrimp is not hot - disappointingly mild after the warnings on the menu and from the waiter.
