Everything was delicious. We tried small plates (scallops, shrimp and grits) and the special which was soft shell crabs. Great friendly atmosphere and nice people. I find HHK to be one of the best restaurants in the area, we had a very nice evening celebrating a birthday.

What a find! Every morsel from start to finish was delicious. We were searching for a restaurant with shrimp and grits and found Hogsheads...OMGoodness, they did not disappoint. The extra dirty Tito’s martini with blue cheese olives made the experience even better.
Looking forward to going again.

These folks are great. It is our favorite restaurant on and off the island by far! Alexis went above and beyond buying candles and a balloon for our son’s birthday celebration at Hogshead. The food is always excellent and the staff is top notch!

The food was amazing. We had four different meals at the table along with sides and every single item was amazing. Cooked perfectly. The homemade bread was the best we have ever had. We will return on our next trip to HHI.

A restaurant we always enjoy with fresh, nicely herbed and spiced dishes. Very fun array of dishes. The tuna tartare never fails to please. The waitstaff was a little harried on this visit, but they are usually very attentive.

Great food. WONDERFUL server. Unfortunately it was cold and rainy, so every time the door opened, we got a blast of frigid air. And we were very early - we should have been given a more “protected” table.

I had their prime rib special, as did one of our friends, and it was meh. The scallop appetizer was excellent, as was the beef burgundy, Brussels sprouts, and loaded baked potato, and the blueberry lemonade cocktail. The meatloaf taste was good, although it was more of a hash - bad texture. I wish they would have informed us of that prior to ordering.

A new favorite! This is one of those places that locals tend to not want to tell tourists about because it's too good to share-- however it's also too good to NOT share. A cozy atmosphere and well thought out menu. Will definitely be coming back as much as we can!

The food was fantastic - prime rib, chicken & waffles and best of all peach cobbler with homemade ice cream. It was a little strange to have fall decorations up on New Year's Eve. That took away from the ambiance.

Stop for an excellent dinner at Hogshead before crossing the bridge into Hilton Head. So good that we stopped for dinner a week later on our way out. Truffled Honey Salmon just the best, Mushroom pasta, meatloaf, ribs all excellent, Warm Brie & Pear Jezebel and Ahi Tuna Steak Tartare apps were great too!

If your staying on the island, this restaurant is further out. The majority of the food we sampled was really good. Two people ordered 'well done' burgers and they came out medium. Fried green tomatoes were incredible. I would eat here again but only if I'm driving past it. HHI has so many incredible restaurants closer to our resort.
