Delicious little place. Definitely has that "backyard" homey feel to it. Menu is full of lowcountry eats and cocktails. The outdoor seating area is great for a warm evening with live music. A must stop while your on the island.

You won't want to visit Hilton Head SC without lunching or dining at Lowcountry. Order this small gem's variation of shrimp and grits--shrimp over biscuits. And try their signature banana pudding and key lime pie.

Came for brunch and really enjoyed the outdoor ambiance. Felt really relaxing while we chatted and ate. Had the Eggs Benedict, which were tasty. Also enjoyed the green tomatoes, just wanted more, lol.

We are here for dinner and sat in the quaint courtyard. Live music, delicious food, and such a fun atmosphere. Shrimp and grits were great.

Great food,atmosphere and staff. Sit outside if you can to get the full experience. The shrimp and grits are as good as advertised. Little tough to find. Next door to the Smokehouse grill.

This is perhaps our favorite place to eat on the Island. It's literally a small backyard, but brings so much charm and enjoyment. Unless you go early there's generally a wait of 30-60 minutes. But that's ok because they have games (ring toss, beer pong,...More

Enlarged, but still the same. If you've never been, its a must go on island. Super fresh local, and home made, southern, comfort food and SUPERBLY mixed drinks (featuring local beers and moonshine that I XO~). Live bands at times, yard games for big, little,...More

Consistently good food. The fresh tomatoes sandwich with the applewood smoked bacon & pimento cheese is my favorite. Wife had the BLT salad with fried green tomatoes. Southern cooking at its finest!
