Hilton Head Restaurants

Did someone say FOOD? Hilton Head Island is truly a melting pot of restaurants. From gourmet five course wine dinners to the simple hot dog venue Hilton Head Island has it all! In fact there are so many restaurants you will certainly have a tough time making this decision! With any vacation rental destination there are those that stand out as tourism destinations and others that are more “local.” Many times our clients will ask: “So where do you go out to eat?” Its really a tough question but some of my family favorites are:

For Breakfast – you definitely have to go to Sunrise Café in Palmetto Bay Marina. Light Fresh and Simply Wonderful! Other options are Skillets Café & Grill in Coligny Plaza or Plantation Café which has two locations – Pope Avenue on the South End and Port Royal Plaza on the North End.

For Lunch – Roll up your sleeves and get ready for a “rude awakening” at Harold’s Diner located mid island just north of Palmetto Dunes Resort. These guys are “rough and tough” (they are truly hilarious at times really) and get ready for the island’s very best burger! If you want great BBQ try the new Bullies BBQ next to the Red Roof Inn mid island. Not much on atmosphere but they make one heck of a BBQ and Brisket sandwich! Another favorite is Main Street Café in Main Street Village. If you are looking for an outdoor venue then try Bistro 17 on Shelter Cove.

For Dinner – My Culinary Arts Classmate (yes, in my former life I was a professionally trained Chef) owns Santa Fe Café located just outside Palmetto Dunes Resort. If you want true authentic southwestern cuisine then “these guys are good!” They also have a chef’s table and an upstairs outdoor dining venue. Another great locals venue is the Up the Creek Pub at Broad Creek Marina off Marshland Rd. It’s a bit of a “roundabout” to get to but it’s a wonderful venue overlooking the Broad Creek with live entertainment nightly. If you want the best sushi in town then OKKO Japanese and Sushi Bar in Port Royal Plaza is it! If you like Tapas or “Small Plates” be sure and check out Crave by Daniel’s in the Beachside Market shops of Coligny Plaza on the South End or Wise Guys on the North End off Main Street.

For the Hilton Head Vacation Destination “Gotta Visit” places then there is The Boathouse on Skull Creek as well as Hudson Seafood on the north end of the island, Captain Woody’s and/or the Black Marlin in Palmetto Bay Marina, Coast in Sea Pines, Marley’s Island Grill just outside Sea Pines’ main gate
