The Studio has a very extensive vegan menu as well as steaks poultry and seafood. The portions are generous and the service was great. We totally enjoyed it and would go back.

A hidden gem. Food was excellent, service was prompt and genuine, and it is not your typical HHI location. Definitely do the crab and Vidalia soup....on an island with some great bisques and chowders, this may be the best!

This was our second visit to the Studio and I found it better than the last. We were greeted warmly and seated promptly and the service was quite attentive. I tried their soup of the day, a creative take on hot and sour with many fresh vegetables (it was vegan so there was no chicken which is sometimes included) and the tofu was superbly flavored. My wife really enjoyed her Vidalia onion and crab bisque. Both were large bowls. The chef's take on Rogan Josh, an Indian dish, was different from any I've had before. Five perfectly cooked chops on perfectly cooked rice in a mild curry sauce accompanied by asparagus. I ate every bite. While my wife enjoyed her chicken entree with lobster mac and cheese she thought it over priced.
A neighboring table took advantage of the early dining menu, which is offered weekdays from 5:30 - 6:00; which we will certainly take advantage of next visit - a three course dinner for under $20 with a smaller portion of many of the regular entrees. This would be a bargain for such fine cuisine. However, they do not give you this menu unless you ask for it.
The restaurant is decorated with lots of original artwork and we were entertained by a fine acoustic guitarist who played some of my favorite songs of the past.

This was our first time at The Studio but it won’t be our last. The main dining room is small and intimate with low lighting, great for a ‘date night ‘. There is a larger back dining room. The wife is an artist and her husband is the chef. He is very good. I had the special which was seared scallops. I was expecting two maybe three. Instead I got six large scallops seasoned and cooked just right. Everything was delicious.

This was a family outing on vacation. Many of us are vegetarians. There were many vegetarian and vegan meals available, the food was excellent, and the ambiance was wonderful. We truly enjoyed the night and will make it a regular place.

Hosting friends on our visit to HHI. Always try to make The Studio a stop when we’re in town. We welcomed warmly and seated promptly. Service was timely and pleasant. Everyone ordered a different entree—from the seafood paella to lobster to butternut squash ravioli with seared scallops. The paella I especially liked with clams, shrimp and a mahi filet. Can’t go wrong at the Studio! Excellent selection of specialty drinks and liquors. Shared a nice bottle of La Jade wine with dinner. We will plan to return on our next time here.

We visit Hilton Head every year and every year we go to The Studio. The food is terrific and creative. There are paintings on all the walls which change seasonally and are done by the owner and the musician supports this artistic atmosphere. There are lots of vegan choices and the food is prepared perfectly.
