Hilton Head, SC, area recommendations?

We'll be vacationing on Hilton Head in mid-August. Haven't been there in years, and I'm sure much has changed. Looking for fresh, fun, funky, and local as opposed to big touristy joints. Any cuisine is fine as long they also have some fresh seafood. Moderate to inexpensive a plus.

Thanks in advance!

  1. I haven't been there in a year or so myself, but a few cool places at the time to grab a drink are at the tiki bar at the Holiday Inn and the Big Bamboo Café down/up the road about 1/4-1/2 mile away.

      We are heading down in a few weeks, and have been going for years. Some of our favorites (which aren't very touristy) are: Michael Anthony's for Italian (we are Italian--and it is some of the best we've had!), moderate to expensive; Sea Grass Grill--simple fish, done perfectly, moderate; Greek restaurant in Coligny Plaza, can't remember the name (very casual and authentic), inexpensive. I've heard good things about Camilia Grill (near the Harris Teeter outside of Sea Pines) and we plan on trying it this summer. We've also enjoyed Aligator Grill (moderate), Charley's Crab (moderate), and Old Fort Pub (moderate to expensive).
