Hilton Head Dining Suggestions

We are leaving for HHI in 8 days. I'm wanting to try some new restaurants this time. We are definitely going to Steamer Seafood (since we are WKU graduates) and One Hot Mamma's (probably to go).

Here are some of our other considerations:
Dye's Gullah Fixins (Does the lunch buffet come with non-seafood items?)
Alligator Grille
Skull Creek Boathouse
Red Fish
Frankie Bones
Tapas Restaurant (really interested in info on this one)

Which ones would you pick?

Cool

Skull Creek Boathouse was fantastic we ate there twice it was so good! The Ceviche was the best I have ever had. Booked again for next August and can't wait to go back!

Alligator Grille is good and has a gift certificate on restaurant.com right now. The code to get it for 80% off is FALL. I got the email about the code last night and bought one for AG right away!

I was wondering about "Eat" also, since I'm a fan of Robert Irvine on TV.

We shall see. We like watching his show on TV. We also added Alligator Grille to our list of places to eat. Don't know if it is any good or not but we got a $50 coupon from restaurant.com for $4 so we'll have to try it. Only catch is the food total must equal or exceed $100. Looking at the menu, I think we can hit $75 without a problem so some other guest might get their entree paid for that night in order to add up to $100 and then take advantage of the $50 coupon! Anyone going the last week of October?

It wouldn't be a trip to Hilton Head for us without a meal at the Salty Dog Cafe.

Don't forget Guisseppe's for a quick pizza.

Red fish has early bird specials.

I had noticed that Alligator Grille has a coupon on restaurant.com. I think I will use the 80% discount and get the $50 coupon. I know my kids would eat $100 just in sushi! Spending that much for my family of 4 won't be a problem.

Guisseppe's is always our first meal on the island. We check in to the resort, head to Guisseppe's to eat, then pick up our groceries at Piggly Wiggly. I think what we may try this time is order our pizzas, shop for groceries, then take the pizzas back to the resort to eat.


Anybody have any info on the other restaurants?

We are in HHI right now. We ate at Skull Creek and it was a great seafood dinner and beautiful patio. Also ate at lowcountry backyard and that was like eating at a family members home. Awesome southern food. One hot mamas had good bbq we tried it for lunch.

I really love Skull Creek Boathouse, as a previous poster suggested; their brunch is phenomenal! If you are a fan of authentic Gullah cuisine, Roastfish and Cornbread is a MUST! http://www.roastfishandcornbread.com/

I look forward to R&C every visit!

Leaving in a little over 30 hours! Thanks for all the advice.

After looking at the menus of some of the suggestions, I found I was not impressed with a Lowcountry Backyard (DH likes a good steak). Roastfish and Cornbread looks to be all seafood (DH is allergic). We don't do breakfast or brunches. We are definitely going to eat at Skull Creek Boathouse, and I bought the coupon for Alligator Grille.

So here's the full list:
Guisseppi's
Steamer Seafood (even though DH is allergic to seafood, there are many land options)
Skull Creek Boathouse
Kingfisher
One Hot Mamma's (for lunch take-out)
Alligator Grille

and I'm still trying to decide on Dye's Gullah Fixin's for a lunch buffet. I'm just concerned that it's like Roastfish and Cornbread and has only seafood. I guess I will call and see.

I'm so looking forward to some great meals next week!

eat!

We were in Hilton Head in July. Our best meal was dinner at Robert Irvine's eat!. On Tuesday night they have a tapas special. The food was great and the service could not have been better.
