I've been coming here for years. The staff is always great which makes for a great place to grab a drink and chill on the beach. The food is always good too.

Stopped in for lunch one day after shopping. Fun atmosphere, beautiful view of the ocean, nice breeze. Entertainment daily. Had a burger and fries, others ate, but we all agreed food was lousy. Probably wouldn't eat here again, just cocktails and hang out.

Thanks for the review, Ladiesgetaway! I'm sorry you didn't enjoy the food during your most recent visit to the Tiki Bar. I hope the great location and delicious drinks made up for the disappointment, and I know we can deliver a better dining experience next time. We would love to have you back for more toes in the sand, drinks... More

Jessica W - I'm thrilled to hear you enjoyed the food, service, and entertainment! Justin Dukes is a great performer and easily a crowd favorite. Spring and Summer is a fun time to visit with daily live music and lots of fun in the sun. We hope to see you at the Tiki Hut again soon! More

This is a great stop after the beach. The drink menu is fun and the drinks were delicious and imaginative. We got some apps that were excellent and loved the soundtrack and view. It's a nice relaxed place too - perfect when you're on vacation. Can't wait to visit again.

We weren't expecting much when we decided to grab a sandwich at this very crowded and loud bar. Having spent about an hour and a half on the beach we walked to the bar and found a seat right away. The band was playing and while it was very loud the music was good. Amazingly the waitress made her way... More

We loved this outdoor bar so much we visited 4 times in a week. Jim, Tommy, Nicole, and Michael offer excellent service. And live music is played afternoons and evenings. Food is served in small boxes and can be ordered in the afternoon at the hut. Meals are kept hot from the kitchen and cleanup is simple. From the bar... More

My husband and I spent a few hours on a beautiful day at the oceanside Tiki Hut. We sat up at the railing watching several beach volleyball games, drinking cold beer and eating delicious coconut shrimp and fries. It was a great place to watch volleyball and just enjoy the beach.

We stayed at the Holiday Inn Beach House, this was so convenient for us to just walk down to. The food was good, the drinks were fantastic. The poolside service was awesome, especially Cassie, Dio & Brandon. Everyone was very friendly, gave lots of tips & recommendations. We will definitely be back!

Description
12 miles of pristine coastline, and Tiki Hut is the only place to drink on the beach in Hilton Head Island. Equal parts local hideaway and the place to be, Tiki Hut offers 365 days of live music a year, with two different acts per day. The music calendar is curated with an eye for detail and an ear for guest preference. In a given week, musical acts range from reggae and funk, to country and top 40 cover bands. The expansion of Tiki Hut includes more cover - the hut itself has been expanded to twice its capacity. The space - open to guests for socializing, relaxing, and watching the pros play volleyball - hosts monthly themed Full Moon Parties and multi-day holiday events right on the beach. Guests enjoy the only toes in the sand, drinks in hand experience on Hilton Head Island, served by a famous crew of bartenders, some of whom have eclipsed their 20th anniversary behind the bar. Nosh on locally-sourced bar food from Chef Tim Nelson, who oversees Beach House's F&B operations. Iconic since 1977, a visit to Tiki Hut is not complete without taking home a shirt and bragging rights that you were here.
