Skull Creek Dockside Restaurant, dropped its anchor in the Fall of 2017 and forever changed the culinary landscape of the Lowcountry. In early 2017 the partners of the restaurant began to transform it into their vision for Hilton Head's newest waterfront dining destination. This restaurant, which resembles an old-style river house, is full of authentic architecture, reclaimed wood, and nautical accents that leave you feeling like you've stepped into a Melville novel. The sweeping waterfront view is showcased by full pane glass windows throughout the restaurant which you can enjoy no matter where you dine. The covered patio dining area, and massive outdoor bar, the shark bar, allows patrons to enjoy the Lowcountry climate and serve to further highlight the amazing sunset views over skull creek. If you are concerned about long wait times, the good news is the restaurant accepts reservations and provides a family recreation area between dockside and boathouse. Kids and adults can enjoy a variety of games, the very popular shark bar and 'shrimp boat' playground. Kids can play while families are waiting for a table, or simply enjoying the amazing waterfront views.

    This is a massive, tourist-oriented place that is focused on volume rather that culinary expertise. If that’s your thing, you’ll love it but if you’re looking for a chef-driven experience where every plate matters, you should look elsewhere

    This is our first visit and not our last. The staff, from the greeters to the waitress, were friendly and nice. We sat inside yet still had a great view of the water. The food was Excellent! Probably the best seafood we have had here since moving down to Bluffton. The waitress was efficient and took really good care of us in a cheerful way. The bathrooms were very clean and stocked with what you need in there. I had the low country boil and my wife and I could have shared it since it was a lot of food. To keep the cost down next time, we will share something. There were three of us and we had a drink each plus a starter and dessert so we were stuff when we left.

    Every staff person we had contact with was exceptionally pleasant. Happy, asked about us where we’re from and if we’d been to HHI previously. Food was excellent. Views amazing!
