Dining options at Hilton Head

Hello everyone, My home resort is Hilton head. My DH and I stayed there only 1 time for a quick overnight stay. And although beautiful, I noticed that there is not alot of dining options at the resort it self. Soooooo I thought I would start a thread of "where is your favorite places to eat while at Hilton Head".

An excellent option at Hilton Head is to cook your own meal

I leave for work before 7 AM and get back home after 7 PM, so I don't have much time to cook except on vacation, so I enjoy having all the time in the world to cook what I like, for a fraction of the cost of dining out.

This being said, we're going to HHI during the 2013 wine & food festival (March 4-9) and would certainly like to know what are the best options for dining out, so I'm subscribing to your thread!

By the way tickets for W&F2013 start selling in 5 days:

I have also invited subscribers to the 2013 HHI roll call to contribute to this thread:

depends on what kind of food you prefer - i liked roastfish and cornbread, ruan thai, hinoki (sushi), skull creek boathouse and frankie bones.

if you haven't spent much time in HHI, make sure to leave extra time to find your destinations...signage is minimal and searching for a new location after dark can be an adventure.

here are some other HHI dining threads for ideas:

There are over 200 restaurants on the island - truly something for every taste. There are 7 within walking distance of the resort and many others a short drive away.

Right at Shelter Cove within about 400 yards of the resort are Kingfisher, Scott's Fishmarket, Bistro17 (one of our favorites), Little Venice, Parrot Cove, San Miguel's and ELAS. Nearby is Giuseppis, Alexanders, Sea Grass Grille.

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.

We ate at Gusieppis and they will deliver too. We ate at the Mexican place and it was good too. They also have a pirate Buffett and Shrimp boil on certain nights. Skull Creek is really good too.

Talk to Mike the Pool guy. He lives there.

We very much like Pazzo across the highway. Walking distance from the resort.

Are most of those restaurants open during off season?

Yes. We walked past several of those in Shelter Cove and they were slow, but open.

From what I've read on some other threads, I definitely want to check out Giuseppis. May venture to Salty Dog? I guess that's a sort of touristy area. Where is the best place for good seafood that is a fun, family friendly atmosphere?

Sea Shack is very casual (think paper plates) and was recently voted one of the top 10 seafood resturants in South Carolina in [I forget the name of the magazine]. Kenny B's is fun, but I haven't figured out how they get away with the Health Board having their pet bull dog in the kitchen. Won't stop us from eating there-the fish baskets are super good. And roastfish and cornbread had the best sweet potato fries I've ever had.

My family's favorite place is Aunt Chiladas Easy Street Grill. We go every trip at least once, sometimes twice

San Miguel is also good, and Giuseppe's has good pizza, which is saying a lot coming from a Nee Yorker

We always get Guiseppe's for take-out. We used to go to the Sea Shack, but heard the chef started Roastfish and Cornbread. We headed there this past summer and it was very good. My kids wanted to go again! We also get fresh shrimp one night and eat in the room.

Our family was just there, Oct 21-28, we loved it.

We tried One Hot Mama's on the 2nd night, we were NOT impressed. The prices seemed reasonable and the atmosphere was ok, it's bar is open to the dining area, therefore you can hear every curse word coming from the crowd at the bar, which wasn't ideal for our family with 4 kids. Also it has garage doors, as part of the decor, that were open in the back of the restaurant and this allowed for cigarette smoke to drift in while dining---yuck!

We were told by TJ, the resort's naturalist, a Hilton Head native, to try Skull Creek Boathouse, this is his favorite restaurant and one of the locals' favorite. It has dining inside and outside on the deck. We chose to dine on the deck, we got there early for lunch and it seemed like it was a good thing, it filled up fast. The service was great, and the food was good, it seemed a little pricier for just a lunch on the island. We definitely liked it but would choose Hudson's over Skull Creek given the choice.

Hudson's is another restaurant on the water, where you can choose to sit on the deck or inside. My husband was immediately happy about our choice to try Hudson's, as the hostess was walking us to our table outside we passed two scraggly looking gentlemen shucking oysters at the bar. Delicious fresh seafood anyone? Yeah baby! It was good, every bite was good! From the hushpuppies to the oysters, it was yummy, all the kids liked it and we liked it. Great atmosphere, great food, great reggae music, it was a great experience we all look forward to trying again.

We also tried Jim n Nick's Bar B Q in Bluffton, I would not have guessed that it was a chain restaurant and was pleasantly surprised by the quality of deliciousness. The atmosphere in the restaurant was very nice, and the service was great. We loved it there so much that on our way up from WDW, which was after our week in HH, we dropped by for a quick run through their drive-thru. After spending $80-$160 in WDW restaurants, dropping $35 for our whole family to feast on good bar b q was a no brainer even with the 15minute extra drive out from I-95.

On our next trip we hope to hit one of Robert Irvine's restaurants and the Sunset Grille. I hope our next trip there happens soon because our whole family loved it there so much, we are all so anxious to get back
