Dining on Hilton Head Island

Taste the Flavor of the Lowcountry

With over 250 restaurants—plus catering and at-home chef services, bakeries, farmers’ markets and gourmet shops—Hilton Head Island offers a delicious bounty of culinary riches.

Begin the day with that old favorite, pancakes and eggs, or French pastries and fresh berries, or grits and ham, a real southern specialty. Just be sure to add lots of butter to the grits! Enjoy a long lunch, or a quick bite at one of the many Island lunch spots – from deli sandwiches to fried shrimp and hush puppies to tacos to fancier fare – it’s all on the menu.

Dinner with family or friends is a perfect time for vacation memory making. Feast on the fresh seafood dockside at a casual restaurant or dine by candlelight at one of the Island’s elegant establishments. Indulge in local Lowcountry favorites like Gullah rice, gumbo, fried okra and peach cobbler, or share a bucket of peel and eat shrimp on the beach as the sun sets over the ocean.

When it comes to dining on Hilton Head Island, there truly is something delicious for everyone.
