Hilton Head update - January
I've uerveyed the posts - and found the helpful. This is just an invittion for any updates - openings, closings, etc. and a request for info on local fish/seafood and other markets in and around HH.
thanks in advance
I'd love to see some updates too. We don't need fancy, just good local food.
We'll be there 1/27 - 2/3. We want to eat "local". No farmed tilapia for us! Bring on the local oysters, shrimp, etc. (It looks like shrimp season ends mid-January but hopefully there would still be some local shrimp around).
Thoughts on Bluffton Oyster Co.?
Also does anyone have any thoughts on the Gullah festival?
The Bluffton Oyster Co restaurant is just at the top of the street where I work. Their Oyster Stew is divine and if you eat a bowl of that you won't be eating anything else - so good! It's not fancy, but the food is good and very fresh. If you feel like having some Mexican food, Mi Tierra in the same little center of Dr. Mellinchamp Way is terrific.
We've had a good trip. Besides Roastfish and Cornbread, we've had very good meals at Redfish (they started restaurant week early, and it was sensational), Blue Marlin and Frankie Bones. We've taken care to check and make sure seafood is local, and there always is something local - and a good bit that isn't. And we've mainly stayed with simple preparations. We also got some local shrimp in Bluffton, which is a good place to get seafood.
I'm a fan of Bluffton Oyster and Benny Hudson's. Hudson may be more convenient if you're staying on HH.
Not a restaurant but high quality market offering local and non local fish. Great if you have a kitchen where you're staying..near Hilton Head Plantation.
