This place is a little tough to find. We had to call when the GPS told us were were close... it's tucked away in a strip mall and the front of the restaurant doesn't face the main road. Ivan did a fine job as our server. They put us at an outside table right next to a warming burner to... More

It was a warm November evening. It was our first time. The atmosphere is charming and the service was great. The pimento cheese appetizer was delicious and the pita points with it were perfect. Drinks are served in mason jars. I had the fresh catch, husband had the shrimp and grits. Baked Mac and cheese is the best side! Definitely... More

Four of us were on Hilton Head for a bridge tournament. I had read about A Lowcountry Backyard in a travel magazine (and checked it out on Tripadvisor) so suggested it to my friends. I am now the official dining organizer for our group. Although it was a little chilly, we opted to eat in the backyard. The atmosphere is... More

With so many amazing restaurants, we had a hard time choosing as first time Hilton Head visitors. I'm so glad we picked Lowcountry Backyard! The food was exceptional and the service was amazing. We truly felt like guests in someone's really, really nice backyard. Our kids really enjoyed all of the games. We all enjoyed the pimento cheese and I... More

We have been to this restaurant 4/5 times. It has become one of the must-visits for each trip. Liked their shrimp and grits, crab meat dip and wild mushroom cobbler.

This restaurant has been on our "don't miss" list for years (ever since it opened). The food and service has always been outstanding, but this year the food was better than ever. We like to eat here because the owners are always so nice, but also because my husband is gluten intolerant. The majority of their menu items can be... More

We've been to Hilton Head Island a number of times and love the restaurant scene. This summer we decided to try something new - at least new to us. Based on reviews we decided to try A Lowcountry Backyard. The first night we arrived for dinner, there was a line waiting to get in. Luckily, we didn't have long to... More
