A firm is proposing a restaurant named Slapfish for the half-acre site once home to The Pantry gas station and convenience story on the corner of Arrow Road. The restaurant describes itself as a “modern seafood shack.” David Ramsey presented plans for 153 Arrow Road to the Town of Hilton Head Island’s design review board in March. 

Hilton Head Island will soon have its own restaurant dedicated to biscuits. Located on Dunnagans Alley, Bad Biscuit is owned by Dave Peck — owner of A Lowcountry Backyard, a Southern-style restaurant on the south end of Hilton Head. Bad Biscuit will be a fast-casual restaurant with indoor and outdoor seating where customers order from a counter. It will be open for breakfast and lunch, serving up Southern comfort food with a creative twist. The restaurant is opening this spring.

Bluffton-based micro-roastery May River Coffee Roasters has launched a line of CBD-infused gourmet coffees. The CBDC coffees, which each contain 350 milligrams of CBD, are available in three flavors as well as regular and decaf and can be purchased at The Juice Hive & Hemp Emporium and The Cottage Café, Bakery & Tea Room.

Staying power in the restaurant business on Hilton Head Island requires a smorgasbord of ingredients. Tenacity and consistency probably top the list, along with great customer service, high quality food, a loyal staff, a friendly vibe, a refreshing and inviting environment, and amenities for enjoying two hours or three with friends and family on game day or any day. Add a daily happy hour with a bar menu, live music, Sunday brunch and catering…and, fresh from the smoker, you have The Smokehouse at 34 Palmetto Bay Road.

Elegant gourmet recipes would be great for Mother’s Day brunch. But they require cooking and grocery shopping skills that, in many households, are possessed exclusively by mom. Isn’t she supposed to get a break on her special Sunday?

More than expensive gifts, most mothers love spending time with their families and are touched when loved ones spend time on them.

But sometimes you just want to rest a minute or catch up with friends and socialize. Luckily, there are several great places to do so. After all, the Heritage is all about Southern hospitality.

They continue to offer a warm and friendly atmosphere and menu items with high quality ingredients. The restaurant retains a Southern influence and generous portions.
