The Ultimate Guide to Hilton Head, Summer 2024 Edition

By and

Hilton Head Island has been a popular vacation destination for generations, and it seems like every year the restaurant scene gets a little better. Of course, seafood is the thing at the seashore on the South Carolina coast, but there’s much more these days for diners in the know, from messy-but-magnificent baby back ribs at One Hot Mama’s to a decadent early three-course tasting menu at Nunzio’s.

And it wouldn’t be island living without summertime porch sipping. The craft cocktail list at Quarterdeck pairs perfectly with the sunset views, the best happy hour for happy meetings and half-off drinks is at Reilley’s, and a frozen lemonade overlooking the ocean at Coast might just be the perfect way to end a day at the beach.

From beach eats to fine dining, here’s our Resy Hit List for Hilton Head Island in 2024.
