LagerHead is not your typical tavern; Chef Michael Toscano, a James Beard “Rising Star Chef” Semi-Finalist, inspires the dining experience at LagerHead Tavern. The name and décor for LagerHead were inspired by the indigenous Loggerhead Sea Turtle and the natural beauty of Hilton Head Island. Developed by Chef Toscano, the menu showcases southern comfort food with a twist, using fresh, regional ingredients and features signature items such as our House-Smoked Chicken Wings and the Low Country Reuben featuring in house pulled pork and smoked ham. The Grilled Salmon Salad is completely unique in that we use fresh grilled salmon that we prepare every morning. Fresh Grilled Oysters are also a Lagerhead Staple, shucked fresh per order and prepared using garlic butter and breadcrumbs for an oyster packed full of low country flavor!! LagerHead Tavern offers creative features and specials, Friday night come and listen to music by some of the islands favorites.

Went on a Wednesday for burger night. The beers were at a great price as was the burgers! The food was hot and fantastic! The waitstaff was really moving at a fast pace, but did not seem to ignore anyone. The place was packed! A little noisy due to no rugs or drapes. But nice room and views! Will be our “go to local place “ since we just moved into HHP and are only a few roads away. But even if we were far off, we’d make the drive!!

Our family went here during vacation to get away from some of the crowd and bc we were booking a last minute reservation and this showed open with decent reviews. The space was a bit warmer than was comfortable and our food was all good, but nothing anyone found amazing. Tried the coconut shrimp, crab artichoke dip, grilled peach salad, shrimp boil, and some other dishes. Overall, not bad but not stellar.

The restaurant is betrayed by its location. The site is open with high ceilings and no drapes and consequently it is very, very noisy. It didn't help that it was trivia night complete with a person using a PA system which added to the din. To top it off, the air conditioning was broken so the restaurant was not only loud, but uncomfortably hot as well. Our waitress was run ragged first by a 12 top who had separate checks and then an 8 top with the same - management REALLY needs to stop allowing that as our server was FAR TOO BUSY sorting that nonsense out. The food was good overall, pimiento cheese dip was spicy but good. Calamari was what you would expect as were the wedge salads. The coconut shrimp was big on flavor but were a bit too chewy due to the batter used. Its hard to recommend this place, while it is a well appointed space, there is nothing to baffle the noise and the Tuesday night trivia crowd is a big detraction from an enjoyable dinner. The food is good, but not remarkable enough to warrant a second look.

Food was excellent and came out fast. The wait staff seemed to be short handed. We had to repeatedly request refills on drinks and after sitting for some time after our meal, we had to wave down the waiter to bring our check.

LagerHead tavern was great. The location is beautiful and the restaurant is medium sized with large windows. Food was excellent and reasonable but HH standards. Service was a little slow as they seem to be a little understaffed. Our waitress was doubling as a bartender. We were overall impressed and we will be back.

Fantastic food and service. Not one of our party (14) had a complaint and all very reasonable prices.
We needed seating for 14 and it was met without any issue. Indoor and outdoor seating available and excellent island touches.
Menu had food with southern touches (stuffed flounder with crab).

As always, Lagerhead Tavern is a great place to dine, meet up for happy hour, relax and unwind. It’s fun going to a place where you see your neighbors, you know all the staff, they all welcome you by name, are very happy to see you! The food is excellent! The prices, early bird menu, happy hour menu, dinner menu and special meal deals ( Thursday- Prime Rib nite, Wednesday- Burger nite, Tuesday- Trivia nite, 1/2 price bottle of wine nite) are best around! No “coin” for $1 off tab deal, just excellent low pricing! Worth trying it out!!!

We brought our Texas guests here because we’ve always enjoyed each meal - and we were all very pleased. It was $10 burger night so it was quite crowded but the service was still wonderful and our burgers arrived in a reasonable time and hot. We all ordered a different type and there were sighs of contentment all around. Definitely a great deal.

We went on a Thursday evening for the Prime Rib special, and discovered that bottles of wine were half price at dinner. One of us had stuffed flounder, one had prime rib. Meal with wine and 20% tip was $90., a good value for HHI. The meal was delicious, the surroundings lovely, and the service attentive. A great meal! There is a special each weeknight, so it’s well worth checking out.

Should not really rate this except for the service. We arrived right on time for our reservation. There was no hostess so we stood there for 10 minutes. Wait staff passed several times and would not stop for us. I finally flagged down the chef who was also waiting tables. He said they have no hostess, are low on staff and before I could say anything else he walked into the kitchen. We left. Not sure why they are taking reservations at all. Won’t go back. Just for their rudeness.

We love to go weekly for a quick dinner but also bring out of town friends & family knowing service will be great. Children's menu is nice and the happy hour pricing and food is great.

Service was horrible, even though the place wasn't crowded. It was a weekday around 6:00. They simply don't have enough staff. We ate outside near the golf course, which was great. Food is pretty good -pub/tavern type of food with something for everyone.

Our party of three couples arrived by 5:15 to take advantage of the early dining menu - which offers seafood, beef, pork and pasta entrees. Included in the price of $19.95 is a glass of house wine or domestic draught beer plus soup or salad. And they discount their desserts too. What a fantastic meal! Our server, Carole, was friendly, competent and attentive. Another plus is their beautiful little gift shop with many low country items to choose from. And such a beautiful location, nestled within the beautiful grounds of the Hilton Head Plantation, part of the Oyster Reef Golf Club. We cannot wait to go back!

Our waitress, Claudia was excellent!!!! Considering for quite awhile she was the only waitress for the entire outside area of about 10 tables and because of no bartender ( she had to make and get her own drinks), she was very pleasant and efficient. She didn't complain or take it out on the patrons. Quodos to her and give her a raise or bonus!!!!!!!. The food was delicious and very creative - quodos to the chef!!. Live music outside while dining - not too loud and nice choice of music and songs. Management needs to hire more help.

The tavern was nicely decorated, but we didn't realize it was basically a golf course tavern. That said, our meal was very good and the service was excellent. It had a nice area for outdoor seating near the putting green. I wouldn't go out of my way to go back, but overall we had a pleasant experience.
