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.

First time at the Tavern. We where seated at a high top,on the covered patio which over looks the golf course. Since we came early to avoid the Hilton Head Spring Break traffic, we could and did select from the early dinning menu. We had a choice between a glass of wine or a beer. A couple of salad choices and an entree for $19.95. Food and service where outstanding.

The food was delish. It was a hamburger special night. They were juicy and made to the correct temp. All four of us had different ones and all were good. It was a bit loud and they probably needed on more server but in these times it’s understandable. She did a good job with lots of tables. Would come back again. All the dishes coming out of the kitchen looked mouth watering.

I have been to this restaurant several times and usually have a salad ...which I enjoyed...this time I went i ordered a pasta entree and was disappointed...seafood pasta with asparagus with angel hair pasta...pasta was overcooked and I had barely a spear of asparagus...but I was with 3 others and was happy to sit outside on the patio on a beautiful evening so I never complained ....the thing that bothered me, and this had nothing to do with the restaurant, were the 4 men near us who were loud and used a bit of unacceptable language....luckily they left before we did so we enjoyed the remainder of our evening....I will return to Lagerhead and will stick with a salad, sandwich or burger in the future...

Service was not fantastic. Server was friendly, but not very attentive. There was another couple inside that maybe she knew? She was over by them talking most of the night. Didn’t get any refills and even asked for another beer that we never got.

I was super disappointed when I booked this is said happy hour. My kids were super excited and had plans on what appetizers to get. It said no where online that it was for the bar area. I asked to switch to the bar because there was several open tables the whole time we were there.
They were reserved yet no one sat there the whole time we were there. It said angry orchard was on tap online
But it wasn’t. My waitress did a great job even though I was super annoyed about not being able to be accommodated for what we thought we were getting. Food was great and service was great.

Food was amazing , lots of variety on the menu with nice specials. Prices were reasonable and portion sizes perfect . I hate huge portions as I will overeat when they are too big. Our waitress was attentive without being overbearing. Coming from NY where we take covid seriously, this place was refreshing as the rest of the Island is a disaster . The restaurant was very clean and not over crowded and all staff wore masks properly. 5/5 Stars

Went for the Friday special fish and chips for $10. The sweet tea I ordered was so clear you could see thru it. Evidently the waiter didn't notice. It was not sweet & tasted like water. He replaced it with another that was marginally better. The food was excellent and it came out quickly. Unfortunately, it was very hard to find him for refills on drinks. Finally asked the manager. They also seem to get as much $$ as they can in taxes & hospitality fees. They charged full price for the dinners and then discounted with a promo code after adding all the taxes & fees. That's too bad because the food is really good. Service needs help.

Lagerhead Tavern is located at the Oyster Reef Golf Course which is part of a gated community. There are no issues passing through the gate provided you identify that you are dining at LT. It's a 19-hole/grill-like dining establishment. Very casual. TV screens. Great outdoor seating weather permitting. There are no heaters or fire pits. We dined on a Friday night and the restaurant was busy. The wait staff were challenged to keep up. Our server, however, was pleasant and helpful. There was an issue with service but it was promptly addressed and more than adequately resolved. We enjoyed cocktails--martini and turtle punch. Both very good. Selected macadamia encrusted mahi and herb crusted salmon with a side substitution of seasonal vegetables. The mahi was excellent and served hot. The salmon was soggy with butter and not as hot. Prices are extremely reasonable. May return for lunch or early dinner to enjoy sandwiches on the patio.

Please tell me why I should use Open Table. My assumption is that you get some sort of "kickback" for filling the reservation, but you don't give points. Seems like going straight to the restaurant would help "support them" better.
