Read reviews on this place so we decided to try it and let me tell you it did not disappoint. Wonderful meal, great service and just an all out great place to eat. We will be back to visit next time we're on the island.

When you're making your list of where to eat on HHI, definitely include this place. Very relaxed atmosphere with some fun yard games to pass the time while waiting or entertain kids between courses. Food was fantastic. Highly recommend the shrimp and grits and fruit cobbler for dessert. Great mixed drinks, too.

We took the family here and had a great meal and experience. If possible, try to get a table outside which has a great atmosphere and live music. Odds are you are going to have to wait but that isn't too bad as the bar outside is a great experience as well and they have games available for the kids... More

This place is not much to look at but the food makes up for all short comings. Cozy backyard and pleasant inside makes this a must try in Hilton Head.

All of the outside tables were taken and so we had to sit inside, but still a fun/quaint atmosphere. The friend green tomato BLT was amazing, and so was the blue crab dip!! Two thumbs up.

The food is great and the atmosphere is cozy back yard. Finding the place was a little hard the first time, but once you do, you wont forget where it is. We come here every time we come to Hilton Head!
