Stopped in for the Monday two-year. Burgers & Fries. Enjoyed the meal. Restaurant was busy. Food was served hot and to order. Restrooms were clean. Hidden gem.. will stop in again.

Our first visit. The Bloody Mary's for $3 are assume. Was looking forward to the as advertised Boars Head Corned Beef Hash with Poached Eggs. Hash though tasty was very thin and over cooked. The poached eggs where over cooked. Our problem is we are not really big aholes , so we didn't object.

OK, this review is all facts and exactly what occurred. Their specialty is NE Clam Chowder, only done on Friday and Saturday nights. So, on a Saturday evening, 5PM, after the server took her sweet time to inquire, we attempted to order that. "Sorry, we ran out this afternoon." OK, you didn't make enough for your dinner clientele; it happens.... More

I have to say this is one great place as it's been here since 1997. They have all kinds of events there & the food is excellent. I am happy to see a place still going so strong after all these years!

Stopped by for quick dinner after volunteering on Hilton Head. Dinner was great. My wife had the steak sandwich and I had an open face beef. Both were great and more than satisfied us. Added surprise was an entertainer who appears there twice a year. What a treat! This was our first dinner there as we have been there several... More

the waitress kept making sure we were okay. there was a hearty piece of meatloaf, tasty mashed potatoes, but the gravy was a little too salty, the roll was soft and tasty and the vegetables had a good flavor. but the bartender was too busy leaning back.

Four of us decided to try this Irish pub out last Saturday night. Not knowing how crowded it would be in the height of summer only about 7-8 miles from Hilton Head we'd made reservations. Totally not necessary. Plenty of filled tables but no waiting. Friendly staff (always a plus in my book), clean and roomy. Menu wasn't huge but... More

I had the cottage pie and it was very meaty and flavorful. It is very heavy for the stomach! The sweet tea wasn't very sweet. The fried artichoke hearts were very tasty, but you only got 4 which wasn't worth the money. My fiancé got the Irish dip sandwich, and it was to die for!
