Food was excellent and the service was exceptional. Our waiter knew all about the menu and made some excellent recommendations. We didn’t know if there were kid friendly meals but they have a separate kids menu. Would highly recommend the bread cheese when they have it as well as the fried green tomatoes.

Chicken was undercooked and ruined our meal. We had reservations for another night and cancelled. Not worth getting sick

First time trying The Lucky Rooster...did not disappoint in any way. We had the fried okra & oysters small plate to start off, along with a couple of Griffin cocktails. If you like toasted coconut, you'll enjoy the Griffin. We each ordered the burgers & both were delicious. The balance of flavors from the bacon on my companion's to the fried chicken skins on mine each made for a phenomenal burger! Our waiter, Jarrod(spelling?) was awesome! He was so kind & patient, answering every question we asked. Great experience & would highly recommend to anyone.

As always Lucky Rooster does not disappoint; had the perfect table and they had Happy Birthday stamped all over it. This is always a must go to place when we are here in Hilton Head, the best farm to table restaurant in the state!!

My only complaint is really what is becoming more and more common, serving tepid, pretty, bottles of tap water w/o ice. Like motels that have touted their "green" requests for decades, asking you to reuse towels[I often do], ostensibly to save the planet; it's really to save them $'s. I worked 70-80 hour weeks for decades. I will not be forced to drink water slightly cooler than the air Now, I simply asked for ice and it was promptly delivered. But, I should not have to ask. I have been served ice water since the 60's and refuse to go backwards.

Aside from my rant, which as stated is about a trend, this restaurant is very good to superb. I had a roasted red fish w/ grits that was very fresh and superbly cooked. I will return. And, I will ask for ice. I know millennials are fine w/ this "green" no ice rule. Most us older and wiser folks are not.

We always go to the Lucky Rooster when we visit Hilton head. Can’t say that about any other restaurant. Food is excellent and always has an extra special “foodie” twist. The service is incredible. And their cocktails are unique and sensational.

The food is miles ahead of a places that get everything off the Sysco truck. I'm not the best judge of value in this case because I'm not from the area, but the prices didn't seem out of line for what we got. The portions were surprisingly large. The two of us split some deviled eggs, the cornbread, and the 1/2 chicken, and we couldn't finish it all. The only complaint I have is that they seemed understaffed. Our waiter was running all over the place, but it seems like we barely saw him.

We asked for a specific wAitress because of past experiences. Menu had recently changed and we were moderately disappointed. There was no bread service any more, you had to pay for corn bread. Our last trip had wonderful French bread slices, but no more.

We are visiting Hilton Head for the week and came back to Lucky Rooster since we had an excellent dinner there last year. Again we were amazed at the quality of the food and enjoyed our meal immensely...the food is low-country fare but prepared very uniquely...DELICIOUS!! We liked it so much we made another reservation for our last night here...Absolutely one of the best restaurants in Hilton Head!
