This is a gem of a restaurant, located just west of the Sea Pines traffic circle next door to The Red Fish Grill. Wonderful selection of entrees, great presentation and quality. A must if you visit Hilton Head Island.

My husband loves shrimp and grits and I love meatloaf. This place has the most incredible food and we are both happy.

Everything we (2 adults and 2 kids) ordered for brunch was delicious. The best part though was the outdoor seating, in a lovely garden-like setting with half a dozen fun games (like giant Jenga, a beer pong table, etc.) available for everyone to play. Delightful.

What a great little place. Be careful you don't drive by. It's next to the Smokehouse Restaurant. The potato chip meatloaf sandwich, with caramelized onions on flat bread is absolutely awesome. Wife had salad with grilled shrimp (her MO) and enjoyed it very much. Great atmosphere with friendly service. Will not disappoint.

We eat here frequently for breakfast and lunch, and are never disappointed. Eggs Benedict with crab cake topping is not to be missed. Nice salads at lunch. Pleasant wait staff

Our male waiter was fantastic...he let us in before the resturant reopened for dinner. We were a party of 3 adults and 2 children...who are very picky eaters...their baked Mac and Cheese was excellent. The crab cakes, gumbo and seafood purloo were delicious!

Adorable little restaurant. Good food, great prices. Little outside area with heaters. Great staff! I had the house speciality: Shrimp &a Grits - delicious. Fried green tomato appetizer was very good. Meatloaf (made with potato chips) also good.

Kim is wonderful. She made us feel at home immediately. The food and service are excellent. I had their specialty of the house "shrimp and grits" and I would do it again. The best I have ever had. My wife had the blackened redfish sandwich with grits. Excellent. This is a real lowcountry restaurant with authentic decor. We had fun.

We had a wonderful time and Kim our waitress made our evening. She made us right at home as soon as we stepped inside and walked us beautifully through the menu and our options. My husband had the catch of the day and I had fish tacos and they were both excellent. Dessert was a favorite - their homemade Key... More

This restaurant is literally in a backyard. Fun and friendly are the key words for this place. Outdoor games and entertainment are available along with very friendly servers. My wild mushroom and shrimp dish was extraordinary. If you're looking for a different slant on dinner, try this.
