HHI first week of December
DH and I will be making our annual weeklong golf trip to HH next Saturday. We have our "gotta go" restaurant list from past trips already lined up - CQs, Old Oyster Factory, Marleys, RedFish, and Sea Shack (no, don't try to talk us out of these - we're going!).
I've been checking hhidining.com for ideas, and we'd like to know if anybody has opinions about these for dinner:
Others along the same line? We've been doing this trip for about 10 years and we have tried many other restaurants. We've done Old Fort Pub, Alexanders, Antonios, Michael Anthonys, Alligator Grille, a bunch of pub/pizza/wing places - all OK by us but we'd like to try something else.
We like places where we can relax over a drink before dinner, are not blasted by loud music while we eat, and are on the island itself (not Bluffton). $$ is not a problem for good chow with a good vibe. We love this week because it is very laid-back, our fav evening is Monday open mike night at the Jazz Corner. Thanks for any opinions!
Consider going to Charlie's L'Etoile Verte off New Orleans Rd and also Main Street Cafe & Pub, Hilton Head Plantation entrance, near the Harris Teeter.
Charlie's L'Etoile is also a favorite of mine for a nice dinner.
Il Carpaccio (great thin crust pizza..but not a pizza joint) or DaVino's for Italian..not quite as "polished" as Michael Anthony's..but both good.
I posted last week about Amigo's...casual Cal Mex that my bro runs. No full alcohol and semi self service..fun but not what you posted looking for..can't resist a plug..:)
We enjoy CQ's and Old Fort Pub a lot too.
If you don't mind taking a drive, Palmetto Bluffs in Bluffton is a spectacular RE development with an inn/restaurant operated by the Auberge de Soleil (Napa Valley) group...really a top restaurant. Worth a drive if you feel like taking a break from golf..beautiful spot on the May River..that's worth seeing in the daylight.
