Off the beaten path...

I thought that it might be kind of fun to have people post restaurant suggestions that are "off the beaten path" so to speak. I understand that can mean different things to different people, but I still thought that it could be fun to do.

We always stay in Palmetto Dunes and we usually eat in the central or southern part of the island. We don't typically go to the northern end to eat very often, so I am not to sure what all is up there.

Last year, we found a small Italian place called Mangiamo's and it was excellent. Does anybody else have any other hidden gems that they frequent or would like to suggest to the rest of us?

To anyone going on vacation soon to HHI, travel safely and have a GREAT time!!

Oh, good question! I'd like to know as well! I stay in Forest Beach and haven't really been outside of that area.

Jeff, thanks for the list. I have been wanting to try a few of your ideas, but just have not found them yet. I have read alot about Harold's Diner and Captain Woody's and would be interested in trying both in May when we go down. Care to share exactly where these gems are located? Thanks!! smiley

Harold's Diner is located on 278 beside Chaplin Park at mile marker #7. Best burgers and steak&cheese sandwiches on the island. Wonderful old time greasy hand-cut french fries. So good they'll make all your joints stop creaking. :wink:

Their motto is "This ain't burger king, you can't have it your way" and "Eat here or we'll both starve!". Only open for breakfast and lunch. Closed Sunday. They don't advertise because they don't need to.

Captain Woody's is in Palmetto Bay marina near Palmetto Bay Sunrise Cafe. From Sea Pines circle, go towards the toll road, turn right on Arrow Rd at the last traffic light, make the first left at Helmsman way. Follow it to the marina. Woody's Grouper Melt sandwich is awesome!

The Hilton Head Dining website and their printed tourist guide has a restaurant map.

Surely you took one home from your last visit?

:D

We went to a place a few years ago that we liked. I believe it was called the Sunset Grill. Is it still there? As soon as you get on the island you have to look for the sign on the left.

I love Harold's! My son and I go there often for a cheeseburger and fries after golfing as a somewhat normal ritual now. It's just so neat "discovering" a local favorite. It's a hole in the wall kinda place that I hope never changes.
