Restaurant Suggestions?

We will be down in HH for the first time the week after July 4th, and I already know that it will be busy. So we are planning ahead and checking out restaurants for dinner. We'd like to eat around 7pm (and I guess everyone else too) so where possible we're going to make reservations.

What are your feelings on these places?

Frankie Bones
Bistro Mezzaluna
Hilton Head Brewing Company
Guiseppi's Pizza and Pasta
Just Pasta
Remy's
Big Bamboo Cafe
La Familia

I know the first two take reservations and Frankie Bones is a definate so far. I've read reviews on tripadvisor and descriptions on HH site, but what are some good recommendations. We are looking for one or two nicer dinners and the rest less expensive, casual but nice family places. smiley

During our trip last week, we went to both Guiseppi's (on your list) and Mellow Mushroom for pizza. If you don't have a Mellow Mushroom in your hometown, I'd definitely recommend you go there for pizza instead of Guiseppi's. We went to Giuseppi's first since it was close to our condo and we like to go someplace different from home, but we loved the pizza, parmesan pretzels, and salads at Mellow better. Mellow Mushroom has a pretty kid-friendly decor with a cartoon-like mushroom character coming out of the wall on a surf board.

I am not familiar with any of the other places on your list. My favorite "nicer" dinners are Sage Room, Michael Anthony’s Cucina Italiana, and Santa Fe Cafe. However, the first two aren't really the type of place I would take small children, so that may not work for your trip depending on the age of your kids. (There was a baby and screaming toddler at Sage Room last week and suffice it to say that both patrons and chefs did not seem happy. :ggrin: )

Have a great trip!

We love the Big Bamboo for a casual dinner. My husband insists we go there every trip! It has really fun atmosphere and excellent food. Their micro-brew is one of the best we've tasted as well!

I did look at Mellow Mushroom, and thought it was a strong option. Between the two, which might be less crowded around 7pm to dine in? We are set to check-in Sunday 7/6 and thought that pizza would be a good choice that night. BTW, our daughters are 24 and 21, each bringing a friend so there would be 6 of us. smiley

Hmmm...I am not sure. There are several Guiseppe's locations (I think) and I am only familiar with the one near Shelter Cove/Palmetto Dunes. That location is not as large as Mellow Mushroom, but I am not sure what it would be like at 7pm (we went earlier in the evening). A local may be more help on this one, especially to know how busy the island would be during your vacation.

Have a great trip!

The Big Bamboo is on our list of musts for next month. It seems to be a fun place. We stay across from Coligny but have never tried the Big Bamboo.

What is the general opinion of Hilton Head Diner and Harold's Diner. To be missed or not to be missed?
