Eat Like a Local in these Local’s Favorites!

Vacationing is fun because you get to embrace a new city or town, and really get to know how the locals live their lives day-to-day.

Here we’ve made a list of some of our favorite hole-in-the-wall or only found in Hilton Head restaurants for you to check out the next time you’re on island time!
