You Can Tell the Quality
Celebrating the fresh ingredients and festive attitude of the Carolinas, and especially the sea islands, The Lowcountry Produce Market and Café in The Shops at Sea Pines Center is a magnet for mid-day meals. Serving breakfast and brunch all day, and offering specialties to take home – including soups, sauces, chutneys, relishes, pickles, and preserves – Lowcountry Produce goes beyond the Sea Pines restaurants in helping you shine when you host at home.
Another place where you can take the delicious home is nearby, too. Hazel Dean’s gourmet grocery, meats, and wine presents all manner of goodies, including locally sourced craft beers and wines so special that they keep them in an old bank vault.
Which Way to the Beach?
South Beach offers a change of vibe, as well as a change of scene, among Sea Pines restaurants. Far afield in America, and even abroad, a Salty Dog tee-shirt is a worldwide recognition signal for, “Been there, done that.” Because even though their menu items are tasty and perfectly selected, even though the view of the South Beach Marina is the stuff of memories, and even though the fun is contagious at the Salty Dog Café, what makes it so famous and makes the tee-shirt so familiar is because of the fun people have when they go there. Yes, it’s the experience people have there that sets the Salty Dog apart from all the other Sea Pines restaurants.
The Sea Pines Beach Club is not only one of the essential Sea Pines restaurants, but also a first-class seaside setting for everything that goes with a civilized approach to a day at the beach.
After Parking the Yacht
If you didn’t bring your yacht this time to Hilton Head Island, then the Sea Pines restaurants you can find in the vicinity of the Harbour Town Yacht Basin make visiting there a good idea anyway. CQ’s Restaurant, on Lighthouse Road, is cozy and homelike, but the cuisine is unlike anything at home – unless you’re fortunate to have a skilled chef in the kitchen.
The Harbour Town Bakery & Café is your spot for breakfast, early or late, leisurely or on-the-go. Salads, soups, and deli sandwiches make it popular for lunch. And their pastries, baked fresh daily, make anytime a good time to drop in for a special coffee and a treat.
As the Sun Sets
When the sun rests low over Calibogue Sound, and the sky opens arms of orange, purple, and red to mark its setting, there’s no place better for watching than the Harbour Town Lighthouse – and no place better for relaxing and dining than The Quarterdeck, right at the Lighthouse doorstep. The Quarterdeck devotes a whole section of their menu to the fresh catch of the day. Favorites such as local shrimp, oysters, and expertly made crab cakes beckon the seafood lover, yet beef eaters and hamburger lovers – adults or children – will be glad they came, too. Cocktails at The Quarterdeck are an islander and insider tradition, and the musical accompaniment there completes an atmosphere that is hard to leave.
The magic of Sea Pines restaurants comes, in part, from how they become a part of you. Memories of the scenes and settings, and the people you’re with, linger on. And something more stays with you, a feeling that the place you found became a little bit yours.
