Pointed Feather LLC has submitted a bid to open a restaurant in the previous Marshside Mama’s on Daufuskie Island. Marshside Mama’s closed more than a year ago, leaving the county-owned building empty. The proposed restaurant would be family-friendly and potentially serve pizza.

The contract still requires final approval from Beaufort County Council.

Hilton Head Island will soon have its own restaurant dedicated to biscuits.

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?
