Top 10 Restaurants
on Hilton Head Island
|#1 Alexander's--This long established restaurant is a winner. In Palmetto Dunes-suggest
reservations. Great atmosphere and consistently great food.
Is higher priced and steak is as good as the fish (try the fillet

atmosphere, vibe, and great pizza! Get Mellow with this huge beer
selection. (All pizza has crust & topping)

this one, but it is a winner. Terrific food, drinks, &
atmosphere. Try the roof if you can get in.

Seafood specials. Combined with the live entertainment it's hard
to beat. At Shelter Cove. Suggest reservations.

great if you want an overpriced, but good burger or pizza in a scenic

Food, Videos, Coffee
Palmetto Dunes General Store--this place is a life saver. Kinda'
expensive, but fun for the kids and the adults. From the
frozen yogurt, to the candy by the pound, to the drinks,
and breakfast menu in the morning this place will be on your
"must visit" list. If you want a USA Today make sure you
get there by 9:30 am.
Kroger--Huge new store at Shelter cove (closer to
Reasonable Prices plus a fake Starbucks.
Publix--For grocery stores this one is the best.
Located at Palmetto Bay Road 843-842-2632

Signes Bakery--Consider visiting Signees for fresh baked
bread (incredible), a great, fresh breakfast and just a fun
different meal. For lunch or brunch--great!
Located at 93 Arrow Road, Hilton Head, SC 29928
Starbucks--If it's not too hot for java get your caffeine
intake here. Right across the parking lot from Publix it's
one stop shopping (if you have to shop!)
The Marriott--the Hotel is right next door.
Nice outdoor bar, sometimes with Music.
The newly remodeled Dunes House Restaurant Bar is to the
right of the Marriott.
Pretty good menu--prices higher than I'd like them to be.
A two minute walk from Villamare.
Great food, great location. A bit pricey!

at the Salty Dog in 1977
You won't get a better sandwich than the Grouper Melt here--if
you're scared of trying new things don't pass this up!
