“Excellent relaxed dining”
Reviewed August 18, 2014

Great plantation/golf setting. Very enjoyable relaxed evening meal for the family. The menu is well judged catering for a wide range of preferences. Basket of breads with fig jam really nice. Catch of the day, barrel fish, was very good as was the lamb and pork chop. The filet mignon was perfection. Good deserts and selection of wine by the glass. Our waiter James was very patient and friendly and attentive, we couldn't have asked for better service.

“Perfectly turned out dinners”
Reviewed August 17, 2014

Recently four of us tried the Live Oak restaurant , Sea Pines, Hilton Head. Each of us tried a different entre;each was done perfectly. Steaks came juicy, tender, flavorful. The scallops/shrimp were exceptional to the taste of the seafood lover. And the vegetarian was delighted with the superb soup, vegetable fritters and succotash. The ambience was comfortable elegance. James did an outstanding job of guiding us in our choices, bringing smiles to our faces as he graciously served the delicious meals, and adding so much to our delightful dining experience at Live Oaks at Hilton head.

“I love casual culinary dinning”
Reviewed August 17, 2014

What a treat. Perfect upscale casual culinary - a fine food experience. Everything was so fresh, and perfectly presented. Staff was excellent - James our waiter was outstanding and was supported by at tentative staff. We shook out the menu with fresh catch of the day, filet mignon and even a brick fired pizza all cooked to perfection. Even the appetizer salads we exceptional. So awesome we just had to test out the cast iron prepared deserts (chocolate classic and another one special that day with fresh mixed berries) and that topped off the beautiful night. Two teenage boys raved about the food and the place, so you draw the conclusion. Views from each table of the sunset over the club wrapped up another perfect day at Sea Pines. Make sure you make reservation early. Enjoy!

“Romantic, excellent food and gorgeous setting”
Reviewed August 15, 2014

My husband surprised me with a wonderful, romantic dinner at Live Oak. The setting was gorgeous! Our waiter James was one of the best I've ever had and was helpful and friendly, without being overbearing. Our food was delicious and wine really wonderful. It was a special evening all around and I would highly recommend this restaurant for a great night out in Hilton Head!

“Hilton Head dining at its finest”
Reviewed August 13, 2014

First off, the actual restaurant is beautiful. The building, the setting on Heron point is just fantastic. The steak was cooked perfectly, along with all the fixings. The beer menu was excellent and cold. Richard (name tag said Rich) was a fantastic waiter. Very knowledgable and friendly. He knew the menu well and was a pleasure to have around. A nice little touch at the end was him telling us to bring the rest of our wine out the the wrap around porch and he would bring our bill out a little later. He came out 15 mins later with our bill and 4 freshly baked cookies. Nice touch my friend. We will be back. If you are on HHI, this MUST be one of your dinners.
