With more than 250 restaurants located within its 12 mile border, and more being cooked up every day in nearby Bluffton and Daufuskie Island, it's easy to see that we take our food seriously on Hilton Head Island.
The wide variety of Hilton Head restaurants offers a taste of everything under the sun, including French, German, Italian, Caribbean, Japanese, Greek, Chinese, Thai and Mexican, along with all-American fare like pit-cooked barbecue and prime grilled steaks. And, of course, what Hilton Head Island vacation would be complete without sampling the famous local seafood: succulent shrimp, sweet blue crab and briny oysters and home-style Southern Lowcountry specialties?
Whether it’s romantic waterside dining for two, a fun-filled restaurant that the kids will enjoy, a place with pub fare where you can watch the fishing boats come in, a traditional Low Country dinner while watching the sunset or seaside dining in a friendly bistro under a brightly colored umbrella, you’ll find that nothing compares to the taste of an Island vacation.
Dining in the Summer on Hilton Head Island
When dining on the Island, you will need to remember that seating times are much longer during the peak season (summer). Once you arrive at a restaurant, it is a good idea to stay put. Often times, guests will consider leaving due to the long wait but will find themselves in the same situation somewhere else. It is best to just grab a drink, relax with the family, and wait it out! In fact, often a little wait is a great indicator that you have come to a great restaurant and are in store for a wonderful dinner!
