When youâ€™re on vacation, eating great food is half the fun! At Palmetto Dunes Oceanfront Resort and Shelter Cove Harbour, we have plenty of wonderful places to dine whether youâ€™re looking for a casual stop on the beach or a gourmet meal overlooking the water.
This week, we wanted to share some of the best Hilton Head appetizers from around Palmetto Dunes and Shelter Cove.
Dunes House Chicken Nachos
Take a break from the beach or ride your bike over to the oceanfront Dunes House within the resort. Our appetizer pick from this fun outdoor restaurant is their Chicken Nachos. Indulge in tortilla chips smothered in grilled chicken, queso, black bean relish and jalapenos. Sour cream and salsa is served on the side. Tip: Get plenty of napkins!
Big Jimâ€™s BBQ, Burgers & Pizza Sliders
At Big Jimâ€™s restaurant, located at the Robert Trent Jones course, try the sliders. Itâ€™s the perfect appetizer to share with a group of buddies! Choose from three smoked pulled pork or smoked chicken sliders with cole slaw and pickle OR three Angus beef sliders with smoked onion and pickle.
San Miguelâ€™s Guacamole Dip - Shelter Cove Harbour
This is one of the best guacamole dips on the island complete with fresh avocados blended with tomatoes, onions and spices and served with their flour tortilla chips. Enjoy the view, aÂ margarita and chips and guac!
HH Primeâ€™s Shrimp & Grits (Omni Hotel at Palmetto Dunes)
You canâ€™t come to the Lowcountry without eating shrimp and grits -- itâ€™s a Southern staple! HH Prime, located within the Omni Hotel at Palmetto Dunes, offers a plate full of jumbo shrimp and grits made with smoked cheddar cheese, tasso ham and sherry butter sauce. Delicious!
Elaâ€™s Blu Water Grille, Shelter Cove Harbour â€“ Mamaâ€™s Fried Green Tomatoes
Another Southern must-have is fried green tomatoes! Get your fill at Elaâ€™s Blu Water Grille, a Shelter Cove restaurant with a fantastic view. Your tomatoes will come lightly fried and crispy and served with Creole sauce, the ownerâ€™s family tradition.
Alexanderâ€™s Seafood Restaurant & Wine Barâ€™s Oysters
If youâ€™re a visitor to the island, you may not have been exposed to the joy of eating oysters! We consider it a delicacy down south. Alexanderâ€™s, located within the gates of Palmetto Dunes Oceanfront Resort, offers North American cold water oysters on the half shell in half dozen or a full dozen. You can also try their Oyster Baked Oyster Combination of three Rockefeller oysters topped with bacon, spinach and hollandaise sauce and three Savannah oysters topped with shrimp, crab, scallops, bacon and cheddar cheese. This dish will make anyone a fan of oysters!
Which dish sounds the best to you? Which appetizer are you dying to try? We hope you enjoy dining at Palmetto Dunes and Hilton Head when you visit us this spring and summer. Bon Appetit!
