Food With a View

When you go out to dinner on Hilton Head Island what are you looking for?

The staff here at Beach Properties really likes seafood and emphatically says “Food With a View!”  And why not?  When the scenery is so exceptional…

Here are some favorites from the staff at Beach Properties:

The Skull Creek Boathouse

Troy Woloszyk, Senior Guest Services Coordinator, chooses a shady waterfront spot that is truly a “local’s favorite”.  He says “The sushi is awesome, great seafood.  Typically live music every day.  Corn hole, life-size jenga… the overall atmosphere!”  And true to its name, this is a real boathouse and it is super-cool “to see how they get the boats get out of the water to the storage…”.

The Boathouse menu is huge and runs the gamut from appetizers like peel-and-eat super-fresh shrimp, inventive sushi rolls, and hush-puppies, to popular entrees such as Grilled Atlantic Salmon, Shrimp & Grits, and Create-Your-Own Surf & Turf.

The Crazy Crab – Jarvis Creek

The Crazy Crab – Jarvis Creek Location

Karen Marts, Vacation Planner, really loves to sit on the patio at this popular spot and check out the tides, the wildlife, and the open marsh views, especially at sunset.

This spot has award-winning crab legs and crab cakes, naturally, as well as regional recipes like Lowcountry Boil.  Their fish and chips are outstanding, and (note to self) their beautifully situated, covered outside deck is often host to private events and weddings.

The Black Marlin Bayside Grill

Meg Park, Sales & Marketing Manager, says “the food is good and the atmosphere is very relaxing.  Also love that the Hurricane Bar is so close for after dinner drinks.”

Consistently voted “Best Happy Hour” and “Best Brunch”, this spot was recently featured on the Food Network’s BEACH EATS show hosted by Curtis Stone, and their famous “Sweet Heat Mahi Mahi” was highly touted there.

With over 250 restaurants on Hilton Head you may get overwhelmed with options, so we hope these “local recommendations” help, and that OUR favorites will become places that YOU love as well.
