    Start with calamari, but ask for the very spicy sauce on the side. Crab cake sandwich or catch of the day are good entree options. Several choices on the kids menu. Try shrimp or fish nuggets.

    It gets very busy during peak hours. My family and I (party of 11) went Saturday around 1 and got seated right away. It was a good time because most people were just getting to or leaving HHI.

    The hush puppies are delicious. The prime burger basket also got rave reviews from my family. The seafood is always good. Definitely a must for a trip to Hilton Head!

    This is not a moderately cheap restaurant. Dinner for 2 cost us $60. If you want cheap go to Kiwi's Cookout or Landing's End. The atmosphere of the entire area is great and so is the food!

    This place is infamous. You have to visit the T-Shirt Factory. The food is expensive and the wait can be LONG, but there's entertainment to help. The wait is so worth it!! Get the hush puppies too!
