The joy of Hilton Head Island restaurants comes before, during, and after we visit them. Anticipation, fulfillment, and fond reflection are blended in the experience. And the fascination extends way beyond those particular fans we call “foodies” and includes the friends and family who love them. A remarkable thing about Hilton Head Island restaurants is that their magic works at every level.

When you consider there are more than 250 restaurants you can choose from, a great many of them locally owned and several of them locally sourced, the magic is not surprising. The abundance of fresh seafood and produce here in the sea islands plays a role. The resourcefulness of our restaurateurs is a key ingredient. And the attraction of working in a world-class resort, too, has drawn here some of the star chefs of the North American restaurant scene.

Here for Everyone

Arrayed around the pleasant plaza of The Shops at Sea Pines Center is a particular selection of restaurants that meets the mood of everyone in the family, and every time of day, within the scope of a stroll.

From croissants and latte at C’est Bon, to a hearty weekend brunch at Lowcountry Produce, to a casual lunchtime interlude at Chow Daddy’s, to an elegant yet not too formal dinner at Truffles Café – which is a Sea Pines tradition – you simply can’t go wrong. In between times, the legendary Hilton Head Island pizza of Giuseppi’s hits the spot.

Memories Made

Engagements, weddings, fortunes, graduations, and new homes are just a few of the memories made here, among the restaurants of The Shops at Sea Pines Center. Love and loyalty are celebrated; bonds are forged.

And the occasion isn’t always grand or momentous. Think of the unforgettable, and most of us are just as likely to recall a time without a landmark, a memory that became part of us unexpectedly, and sometimes from the plainest of goings-on. These simple pleasures become the stories of a lifetime, the times that turn unforgettable on their own.

And traditions, they aren’t always attached to home. Sometimes customs stem from Hilton Head Island restaurants, too. Our favorite such story is of a dear friend’s shrewd, feisty European grandmother. She ruled the family kitchen, yet she always had her husband pick up bread from Truffles for important family get-togethers.

The Luxury of Choosing

Part of the pleasure of patronizing the restaurants of Hilton Head Island is the feeling that you had your own choice from a fine array. It’s not just the one you chose. It’s the feeling that you could have picked a great many others and never made a mistake. There’s a synergy in our selection, especially here in The Shops at Sea Pines Center. For any occasion, for any guest list, here is a perfect spot. From pizza to French pastry, from tilapia to tacos, from Caesar salad to shrimp and grits, it’s a fine thing and a fun thing to dine here. Come join us in The Shops at Sea Pines Center.
