Skull Creek Boathouse is on our list of "wanna try's". But, even though we go in the off-season, it's always crowded. So I can just imagine how busy it is in season! We went to Hudson's once and liked it. But then a chef at the resort, Gordon in the Mercantile, seemed a little unsure of it, and he's steered us right so many times, we were unsure about going back (it's been so many years since we ate there). Glad to hear your positive review-we'll have to try it again. For breakfast, you can't beat Stack's Pancakes. I love their pancakes with fresh fruit.

I am sorry to hear about One Hot Mama's, I met the owner Orchid at the Atlantic City Food & Wine festival, she was also a contestant on Next Food Network star a couple seasons ago and she's a great lady. Very friendly and personable, talked to us for a while. She was there with her husband and again both couldn't have been nicer.

We sent friends to Robert Irvine's EAT restaurant and he loved it. We haven't beem able to get down to HHI but are hopign to just to try Robert's restaurant .

What we do at One Hot Mama's is get the takeout meal. For $19.99 you get a meal that feeds 4. If I remember correctly, it's one meat and 2 sides. Great BBQ reasonably priced without the restaurant atmosphere.

I second Skull Creek Boathouse! This was our family's favorite meal on our last trip. We will definitely be back.

We also loved Dye's Gullah Fixin's. We ate there for the lunch buffet and everything was heavenly. I just noticed that she has a new location and only serves takeout now. On our last trip, she told us she was planning this, but now that's it's happened, I'm so disappointed. I wanted that lunch buffet again so badly!!!!

We also get Giuseppi's Pizza for the first night since we are arriving later and just want takeout and we have to pick up groceries at the Piggly Wiggly next door.

Another great one that I don't hear much about is the Chart House. My DH and I ate there on our 20th anniversary a couple of years ago and really liked it.

We also usually try to hit Steamer Seafood. The owner is an alumni from the same college we graduated from, and there's all kinds of WKU references in the restaurant. The food was good, but I think we go more for the feeling of home while on vacation.

I really want to try Roastfish and Cornbread, Alexander's, and the Sea Shack.

HHI Is just great. We found we could save money by hitting the early bird specials.

We love to eat on HHI.
Completely agree on Skullcreek, (ate there twice which we never do), and Roastfish and Cornbread.

Another we tried a little more upscale was The Sage Room. Our kayak guide recommended it and we really liked it. It is in the back of a strip mall and hard to find but great menu. We were lucky to get a table at opening.

We went to One Hot Mama for brunch, and it was just ok. Not sure how there BBQ is though.

Recommend signing up for Living Social deals for Savannah and HHI. There are some good deals there for half price dining that we were able to take advantage of.

A Lowcounty Backyard!
http://www.hhbackyard.com/

We ate there about 2 years ago, it was the first month they were open. VERY AWESOME! Small, intimate home cooking. We were the last ones in the restraunt and sat and chatted with the owner and staff. Try the Shimp & Grits or Potato Chip Meatloaf.

My mom and das were there just a couple weeks ago and it is still just as awsome.

My parents live on HHI, so we are there frequently, although have never stayed at the DVC location. There are a number of great places to dine.

Don't miss The Oyster Factory. Beautiful view and great food. (Can be touristy, but it's worth it.)

So many other great places. The Island offers something for everyone.

just got back from HHI and enjoyed this - they currently have 1/2 price tapas/small plates on tuesdays and that was fun to try different flavors.

also tried reilley's on monday night for the $12.95 lobster deal - the lobster was probably only a pound or so but it was very tasty - loved the claws. wanted to go back another night but ran out of time...

We also enjoy Bonefish, Skull Creek Boathouse, Black Marlin, Frankie Bones, One Hot Mamas, Red Fish, Mangiamo's, Crane's Tavern, Catch 22, Old Fort Pub, Eat!, Jazz Corner and Charlie's Etoille Verde among others. All of these are within about 4 miles of the resort.

Chef Gordon, in the resort Mercantile, is a great resource for dining suggestions. The Front Desk staff has discount coupons, menus and booklets with restaurant listings.
Do most of these places take reservations? Worried about going in June and the wait time for a larger party.

Where did you purchase the fresh shrimp?

Would you recommend Robet Irvine's with kids? My DD loves to watch him on TV that might be a great spot to celebrate my MIL birthday while we are down there.
