New BBQ, Burger & Pizza Restaurant Now Open at Palmetto Dunes’ Robert Trent Jones Course

HILTON HEAD ISLAND, S.C. –Palmetto Dunes Oceanfront Resort is introducing a new restaurant concept to the Hilton Head area just in time for the summer season. Big Jim’s BBQ, Burgers and Pizza opened last week at the Robert Trent Jones course clubhouse, offering a relaxed dining option for families, golfers and Hilton Head residents and visitors alike.

Big Jim’s is open seven days a week for breakfast, lunch and dinner, serving signature Southern dishes, including barbeque, gourmet burgers and grilled pizza, as well as soups, salads, seafood, steaks and ribs. It also offers a kid’s menu, as well as a wine and beer menu. The restaurant has big screen TVs, expanded outdoor seating overlooking the Jones course, Happy Hour specials from 4-7 p.m. daily and live entertainment Wednesdays and Saturdays from 6-9 p.m. Take out and catering are also available by calling 843-785-1165.

Big Jim’s, named for Jim Self, a visionary who acquired Palmetto Dunes in 1979, is situated in the heart of the resort, close to the beach, the Palmetto Dunes Tennis Center and the Palmetto Dunes General Store. It overlooks Palmetto Dunes’ award winning Robert Trent Jones golf course, known for its 10th hole, one of only two oceanfront holes on the island.

“Big Jim,” the name Self’s grandchildren affectionately called him, was a successful entrepreneur and an avid sportsman who also loved to cook. He swore by a recipe for Tennessee coleslaw he found while scouting a potential acquisition and perfected his own special barbeque sauce, both of which are featured on the menu.

“Drawing on the success of our beachfront Dunes House, we’re sure Big Jim’s is going to become a popular dining destination with its broad, affordable menu combined with a spectacular view of the Jones course,” says Bret Martin, vice president of resort operations for Palmetto Dunes. “We’ve listened to what our guests have asked for and are responding by providing a family friendly restaurant that is a short walk or bike ride from any location in the resort. It also offers a great view from our outdoor dining patio of the weekly HarbourFest fireworks starting June 19 over at Shelter Cove Harbour.”

Other dining options within Palmetto Dunes include the Dunes House, which is located on the beach and is open to guests of the resort, as well as Arthur’s Grille at the Arthur Hills golf course and the Fazio Grille at the George Fazio golf course. Alexander’s is located at the front of the resort and is open for dinner, and the hotels on the property offer several restaurants, including HH Prime and the XO Lounge.
