The Most Popular Seafood Dishes in Hilton Head

If you’re into seafood dishes, we’ve got great news for you:

The island is an amazing place to sample some of the best seafood in the Southeast. From mouth-watering seafood platters to succulent fish cakes, Hilton Head has every dish to tickle even the pickiest of palates.

Here are the top seafood dishes to sample when you come to the island.

Seafood Pasta

If you’re up for a blend of Italian and seafood from the Southwest, then try one of the most popular dishes for vacationers and locals alike — seafood pasta.

A delightful combination of fresh seafood and perfectly cooked pasta, this dish balances flavor and texture. And because of all the seafood and pasta in it, it’s a filling way to either start the day or cap it off.

If you’re looking to sample this delectable crowd-pleaser, head over to Skull Creek Boathouse along Squire Pope Road.

Fish Tacos

Fresh fish tacos are a burst of coastal flavor in every bite. Think tender, flaky fish like mahi-mahi or cod, seasoned and cooked to perfection. Topped with vibrant slaw, creamy avocado, and a zesty lime crema, all wrapped in a soft tortilla, these tacos are the ultimate seaside snack.

Numerous spots on the island offer this seaside favorite. For fish tacos with a creative twist, check out Fishcamp on Broad Creek.

If you prefer a laid-back vibe, The Sea Shack offers deliciously simple fish tacos that never disappoint.

Seafood Po’Boys

The seafood po’ boy is a New Orleans classic that’s made its mark on Hilton Head. Crispy fried shrimp, oysters, or soft shell crab piled high on a soft French baguette, layered with fresh lettuce, juicy tomatoes, pickles, and a zesty remoulade sauce — the perfect sandwich to satisfy your seafood cravings.

Besides the Sea Shack, Hudson’s Seafood House on the Docks makes a mean po’ boy sandwich that’s as mouth-watering as it is filling.

Seafood Platters

Are you up for a feast? Then look no further than the island’s seafood platters.

Seafood platters are the ultimate feast for the indecisive foodie. When you order one, you’re in for a generous spread of fried shrimp, grilled fish, succulent scallops, and sometimes even crab or lobster. Each bite offers a different taste of the ocean, making it a seafood lover’s dream come true.

Two spots offer the best seafood platters on the island. You can choose between Hudson’s Seafood House on the Docks or The Sea Shack.

Lobster Rolls

Lobster rolls are the epitome of seaside luxury in a bun. Fresh, sweet lobster meat is mixed with just the right amount of creamy mayo and a hint of lemon — all inside a stuffed buttery, toasted roll.

It’s simple.

It’s decadent.

And it’s oh-so-satisfying.

If you’re up for a top-notch lobster roll, Red Fish is the place to be.
