A Low Country features a brunch and lunch/dinner menu. Weekend brunch includes Breakfast Sandwiches, Eggs Benedict, Shrimp and Grits, May River Blue Crab Dip, Fresh Tomato Sandwich, Biscuits and Gravy, salads, and much more.

The lunch/dinner menu includes a selection of appetizers (Fried Green Tomatoes & sweet pickles), sandwiches (Fresh Tomato Sandwich, Fried Green Tomato, Low County Crab Cake, and a Backyard BBQ Pork Sandwich to name a few of the many options), Entree sized salads (Backyard Bean, House, and Southern Belle), and a selection of low country favorites (Island Crab Cakes, Shrimp and Grits, and Dad's Backyard Chicken).

The Backyard Bean Salad, consisting of a combination of lettuce, kidney beans, avocado, olives, green onions, tortilla chips, tomatoes, and cilantro dressing is a great choice for anyone looking for a light, healthy lunch. Chicken, tofu, shrimp, and crab cake can be added for some extra protein.

Unlike most Southern inspired menus, you will find a variety of gluten-free options. Gluten-free bread for the sandwiches is available as an easy substitution. Most sauces used for entrees and salad dressings are gluten-free as well.

A few of the gluten-free options include Backyard BBQ'd Chicken, Charleston Fried Green Tomato BLT, Shrimp and Grits, and Seafood Purloo.

In addition, you will find several vegetarian friendly dishes. There is even a vegetarian option where you can pick 3 different sides that are served alongside cornbread and butter. Cream cheese whipped potatoes, baked macaroni and cheese, Creamy Grits, and Mom's macaroni salad are some of the options available.

As you can see their is a diverse selection of choices for everyone, making it a great place to enjoy during your family Hilton Head vacation.


Service was fantastic: friendly, and personable. Our waitress was able to verify gluten containing menu items. She also had no problem creating a simple side dish consisting of toasted gluten-free bread with olive oil.


The setting, as the name suggests, is an outdoor patio reminiscent of a backyard. A trip to this laid-back restaurant is the perfect addition to a relaxing Hilton Head vacation. Nice touches such as a porch swing and fire add to the country ambiance.
