"Happy With Everything"


The menu is full of southern-style home cooking. Not the typical beachside affair. We were beyond impressed with the pulled pork nachos. They had chips with pulled pork, baked beans, and cheese, topped with cole slaw. The happy hour specials were great, and our waitress let us know what time it was!

"We'll Be Back"


The food was excellent. We had the shrimp and grits and the market fish which was catfish over cauliflower puree and roasted veggies. Both were fantastic. In addition, there was a live band playing at the Tiki Hut next door which was audible at a comfortable level.

"Great Food & Menus"


We ate here a couple times while staying at the Beach House. We had breakfast one morning, and lunch snacks another day. The food was superb! Very flavorful and good portions. It's a different menu than what you will find elsewhere on Hilton Head and definitely worth a try! We'd definitely come back.
