The RBC Heritage Golf Tournament is just around the corner, and we’re all eager to witness those spectacular swings and birdie celebrations. However, let’s face it; all that golf-watching can work up quite an appetite. Luckily, Hilton Head is packed with notable restaurants and cafes to satisfy your hunger — and we’ve got the perfect list of places to check out for you.
Harbour Town Golf Links is the heart of all the golf action this year. We’ve scouted all the best places to eat around the venue. There’s no need to go far just to get a filling meal — with all places within a mile of the golf course, you can easily walk to the restaurants before, after, or even between matches.
The iconic Quarterdeck is the perfect place if you’re looking to savor the sea’s finest food. Picture a lovely outdoor patio seat, a gentle breeze through your hair, and a platter of the ocean’s finest bounty before you — that’s the experience you’ll get at this restaurant.
Located just a stone’s throw away from Harbour Town, Quarterdeck is a delightful seafood joint where you can indulge in the freshest catch of the day while sipping on refreshing specialty cocktails or draft beer.
A must-try dish here is the Fried Captain’s Platter, bursting with shrimp, oysters, catfish, fries and creamy Asian slaw. If you want something gluten-free, check out their Atlantic salmon served with pineapple salsa and shrimp risotto. It is a flavorful and filling treat.
Links, an American Grill
For those craving classic all-American goodness with a touch of elegance, Links is the place to be. With breathtaking views of the golf course, this restaurant offers a fine-dining experience without a stuffy ambience. Instead, you can enjoy their stellar dishes and laid-back atmosphere.
Links is the perfect place for breakfast or brunch. Try one of their three styles of eggs Benedict — Southern, crab cake, or their signature Links Benedict — together with a mimosa. For anyone looking for a hearty and meaty breakfast, their filet mignon and eggs might be what you need.
The Crazy Crab Harbour Town
If you’re in the mood for some finger-licking-good seafood, The Crazy Crab Harbour Town won’t disappoint. Located conveniently close to the golf course, this restaurant boasts a delightful atmosphere, waterfront dining, and a menu that’s as packed with flavor as the restaurant is during its busiest hours.
The place might be known for their crab, but they also serve awesome shrimp, lobster, scallops, and even a mean plate of ribs. Be sure to try their take on the iconic Lowcountry shrimp boil or their original snow crab legs boil — both served with red potatoes and corn on the cob.
Harbour Town Bakery and Cafe
Need a quick breakfast or pick-me-up during the tournament? Harbour Town Bakery and Cafe is your go-to spot. This delightful bakery offers a selection of treats and savory delights, perfect for satisfying those between-game cravings.
The cafe serves breakfast from 7:00 AM all the way until 2:30 PM, so you can get their gluten-free pancakes, waffles, and French toast even after lunch.
If you want something savory to start your day, then go for their flaky, buttery chicken salad croissant sandwich, stuffed with chicken salad, spinach, and tomato. For those with a sweet tooth, their assortment of freshly baked muffins, scones, cookies, pastries, and danishes will make your taste buds dance with joy!
Truffles Cafe Sea Pines Center
When you need a break from all the excitement — or some good ol’ comfort food — head over to Truffles Cafe. The place offers a comforting and hearty meal and a relaxed atmosphere that’s perfect for memorable conversations or simply discussing the plays of the last game.
Their French onion soup is a divine appetizer that will leave you craving for more. For the entrees, their mango chicken sandwich is a crowd favorite while the chicken pot pie is a true winner, boasting a golden crust and a creamy, flavorful filling that will warm your soul.
Cinnamon Bear Country Store
This place might not be a restaurant, but we think it still deserves a spot on our list. Cinnamon Bear Country Store is your one-stop-shop for delicious snacks and charming souvenirs.
When the heat starts to get to you, head over to the Cinnamon Bear Country Store and treat yourself to a scoop or two of their scrumptious ice cream. They offer generous servings, served in either a cone or bowl. Even better, they also serve gluten-free, nut-free, and dairy-free frozen goodness!
Here’s another place to pop into when temperatures rise. Nothing beats the summer heat like a gourmet popsicle from Palmetto Pops. All their popsicles are handmade using the freshest fruits and ingredients, with no artificial flavorings in sight.
Indulge in their fun fruity pops like watermelon lime or chunky mango. You could also try something creamy and decadent like the chocolate and sea salt or toasted coconut — all of these are perfect flavors to keep you cool and refreshed during the tournament.
Giuseppi’s Pizza in Sea Pines
Have you found yourself craving a slice of pie while watching the RBC Heritage Golf Tournament? You’re in luck, because the best pizza place in town is less than a mile away from the golf course. Giuseppi’s Pizza in Sea Pines serves up mouthwatering pies that will satisfy your cravings.
Start the meal with their famous skinny stix or the crowd-favorite meatball bake before moving onto their handcrafted pizza pies. Their classic margherita pizza is a favorite among locals, but if you want a true experience, then get the Giuseppi’s Special — filled with pepperoni, sausage, and veggies.
