Terrific lunch on St Helena island. Bill is not only a great chef, he's a steward of the Gullah culture. Loved meeting him and eating the real thing. Worth going out of your way!

Gullah cooking is the real southern "soul Food"...it's made with lots of love and in the style that defines the great food that the southern slaves created with very limited supplies.

The shrimp gumbo was all I had, and I wish I would of had a bigger bowl. If in Beaufort and you're looking for shrimp gumbo this is the place!

Bill Green is a man for all seasons. He has led the life of an outdoorsman, a chef, and an educator of the local Gullah youth. We experienced all three of these roles when we stopped at his restaurant on St. Helena Island. The menu...More
