Discovering Unique Hilton Head Restaurants

By: Terry Parker

With its breathtakingly beautiful scenery and abundance of activities to enjoy, it is no wonder why so many people choose Hilton Head for their vacation destination. During your visit, be sure to take time to discover the many Hilton Head restaurants that help make the island so unique.

First time visitors should also keep in mind that area restaurants tend to fill up fast, but that the wait is more than well worth it. In fact, you can usually tell which restaurants are the best by the amount of people waiting for a table during peak hours. The good news is that many restaurants offer waiting diners complimentary coffee, water, other beverages, and snacks in the mean time.

When you are shown to a table, make sure to take your time to enjoy the atmosphere and relax with your family and friends after a long day of fun Hilton Head activities.

For an old fashioned family breakfast, try Stacks Pancakes And More. Their pancake batters contain only pure whipping cream and 93 score butter. The restaurant grinds their own coffee and wheat flour, and their extensive menu also includes lunch entrees.

One popular favorite Hilton Head restaurant with a unique twist is Frankie Bones. This diner features big booths, soft lighting, and a wide range of comfort foods, including Frankies Lobster Mac and Cheese, slow roasted prime rib, fresh seafood dishes, spaghetti and meatballs, and an extensive bar menu, featuring champagne Bellinis, and both classic and original martinis. A children's menu and takeout dining are also available.

For upscale dining on Hilton Head, the Palmetto Dunes Resort is a classic choice. Alexander's has been a local favorite since 1977, serving continental cuisine, and with spectacular views of the nearby lagoon, a meal here is definitely a unique experience. The decor includes Oriental carpets, wicker furniture and a truly unique collection of vintage Harley Davidson motorcycles, courtesy of the private collection of the restaurants owner.

There are many other great Hilton Head restaurants to choose from, no matter which type of cuisine you crave. Just be sure to take a tip from the locals and call ahead, especially during peak tourist season, when the restaurants see their largest crowds. With so many options, you are sure to have enough dining experiences for more than one vacation, which is one of the many reasons why an estimated 2.5 million people visit Hilton Head each year.
