Don't be fooled by the decades old decor. This place has connections for the best local seafood on the island. Call them ahead of time, ask them to steam your shrimp. Then grab your favorite beverage and head to the beach to watch the sunset.

I know, the picture shows a clothing store, but right next door is where you can pick up any essentials you might have forgotten. You might pay a premium, but you be glad you only had to walk there - especially if it's something like a toothbrush.

Here is SERG's description: Located just steps from the water in Hilton Head, South Carolina, its covered patio and outdoor bar brings diners a breathtaking view of Skull Creek. From the views, to the staff, to the fresh and elegant cuisine, you will not want to leave. I will leave it at that! This is, without a doubt, one of my all-time favorites.

When you dine at a SERG restaurant, you know what you are getting. Quality food and service at a value price point. It's hard to find any product these days, let alone a restaurant chain that can deliver on this day in and day out, but SERG does.

Ok. Get ready. I don't want to post a spoiler so here goes. This is a must. It's a once in a lifetime. It's a story you will tell over cocktails forever. It's a breakfast haven or maybe a heavenly breakfast? Be prepared - they don't offer valet parking.

If you ask most people who have ever been to Hilton Head - "Where did you eat?" - This has go to be one of the first restaurants they mention. Don't worry - this is not a tourist trap - it is simply one of the most iconic restaurants on Hilton Head and you would be remiss not to dine there one night.

If you want authentic Italian cuisine, then you must seek out Il Capraccio. Simply the best Italian food on the island. If the owner/somellier/host is there, I will give you a $5 credit on your invoice if you can make him smile.

OK, so I went to Michigan State. Good thing the owner of this Ohio State mecca doesn't recognize me or I might never make it through the door. I would have to explain that I actually grew up in Ohio. So if you are from Ohio, or even if you aren't, this is a great sports bar with good food and good prices. They even have a University of Michigan decal in the urinal...oops.

Ok, so I am just going to tell it like it is. This is my go-to restaurant on the island. The food and the flavors are spectacular. If you want mainstream fare, there are plenty of other places nearby on Pope Avenue, but this food will knock your socks off. How do they do it? I have a hunch it's a) the very talented chef, and b) the SERG ownership and management.

When someone asks me about a place to go for a special occasion, the Sage Room is my answer. Call ahead for reservations and if you want to take in the whole experience, request a seat at the Chef's Table - better known as the bar. You will enjoy a lineup of top flight chef's preparing top flight meals. When you follow your iphone map to get there, you might think you're lost. Don't worry, you're not.

You're so lucky! This iconic Hilton Head restaurant is right next door! There are so many options as to where to hang out around the marina. And plenty of things to do even if there is a wait. Be sure to ask for the Jakester - even if you don't know what it is, you will be glad you asked because then you will know what I eat when I'm hungry at the Dog.

I don't want to give away all my secret haunts, but if you are reading this, have at it! My favorite table is upstairs on the outdoor deck overlooking the South Beach Marina. Maybe they should put my name on a brass plaque. But even if you are inside, this is a great place to wander over to in your flip flops and feel the honky-tonk vibe of a fishing village setback along the Calibogue Sound.

Take some time to see the Plantation Club. Contrary to what people think - oh it's a country club - well, it is and it isn't - it's designed to make John Q. Public feel like they can enjoy the club without the membership. Honestly, this a very reasonable dining experience that allows you to take in a beautiful vista of two of Sea Pines Resorts' most special golf courses - Atlantic Dunes and Heron Point.

Beaches
All about Sea Pines beaches.
South Beach is at the southern tip of the island often identified by the Salty Dog Cafe and the South Beach Marina Village. The beach itself is a calm, private stretch of sand that runs along the Calibogue Sound from beach marker 0 to where it meets the Ocean and continues on past Tower Beach. There is no beach parking, so the sands are almost entirely exclusive to residents and guests staying in the area.

Tower Beach is a private beach and pavilion for the exclusive use of Sea Pines residents and their guests. So don't try to park there. However, it is an easy bike ride on the beach (preferably at low tide). Insider Tip - this is one of the few places you will find a restroom near the beach!
