Sea Grass Grille is located about eight minutes east of Marriott SurfWatch, and is located fronting 278. Sea Grass Grille is located in a small plaza, Plantation Center adjacent to Santa Fe. OnStar will instruct the east-bound driver to do a U-Turn at the Chamber of Commerce Road, and OnStar announces “You have arrived.” No we have not arrived; we are in Plantation Center, and I guess that we drive east. I am correct 50% of the time, and sure enough we have a visual on Sea Grass Grille.

Sea Grass Grille – what a lovely name for a restaurant. And Sea Grass Grille is a lovely restaurant. We assume that the owners are decorators or hired a decorator for the interior. We already like Sea Grass Grille. The Irish owner/hostess escorts us to a great, quiet table.

We elect a bottle of Sauvignon Blanc, and discuss the day, the ocean, the views,….Yes, this is a fine small menu, and the chef is not going to pull a plastic bag from the freezer and nuke it. In fact, we can see the chef carefully preparing the meal.

Sea Grass Grille offers a medium size dining area, and walls of windows. Let there be light. The decorated dining area is so Hilton Head.

My wife orders the potato pancake, which is stuffed with lump crab, and I like the fresh salmon rolled in grains. Both dishes are quite distinct, and this is a menu for “foodies.” The fresh vegetables, salad, and breads are welcome. The tariff is appropriate for the fare.

This small restaurant is excellent. The friendliness and laughter felt great and they made room for us w/o a reservation. Food was best on HH.

I went to this restaurant with a group of friends. We all got different dishes and they were all great. I would especially recommend the Carolina Tomato Pie and the Chili stuffed pepper. Seafood dishes are also specialties. Lunch prices are quite reasonable.
