Sean Carroll joins the Palmetto Dunes Oceanfront Resort family as new Chef de Cuisine for Alexander’s Restaurant. Graduate of Atlanta’s Le Cordon Bleu College of Culinary Arts comes to Alexander’s from Williamsburg, Virginia

HILTON HEAD ISLAND, S.C. (June 2017) — Sean Carroll has joined the Palmetto Dunes Oceanfront Resort family as the Chef de Cuisine for Alexander’s Restaurant & Wine Bar.

Located at 76 Queen’s Folly Road on the main Palmetto Dunes entry road, Alexander’s has been a popular choice of the Hilton Head Island dining scene since 1977. Alexander’s closed last October following Hurricane Matthew, but reopened in March featuring a fresh look and a revamped menu following a complete renovation.

The menu pays tribute to many classic Alexander’s favorites such as stuffed flounder, shrimp and grits, and Wiener schnitzel, with seasonally inspired cuisine; locally caught seafood and many locally sourced ingredients. The new décor in Alexander’s lagoon-front setting offers more of a Lowcountry appeal. Alexander’s is open for early dining and dinner, seven nights a week.

Carroll came on board just as Alexander’s reopened its doors to the public and has been hard at work getting the restaurant through its initial phase.

Carroll graduated from Le Cordon Bleu College of Culinary Arts in Atlanta, Georgia and went on to work at The Inn on Biltmore Estate, a 4 Diamond and 4 Star hotel in Asheville, North Carolina. His experience includes time at the Bistro at Biltmore Estate along with two restaurants in Georgia (TWO Urban Licks in Atlanta and The Partridge Inn in Augusta) and two restaurants in Williamsburg, Virginia (Blue Talon Bistro and Waypoint Seafood & Grill).

“When we acquired Alexander’s Restaurant, I thought of my experience working with Sean Carroll and knew he would be the perfect fit for Chef de Cuisine of the restaurant,” said Palmetto Dunes Director of Food and Beverage and Certified Sommelier Brian Couey. “Working with Sean at The Dining Room at the Inn on Biltmore Estate, I immediately recognized his talents and focus to providing a memorable meal for our guests. Sean is creative, driven, and organized and these qualities are hard to find in a chef. I am eager for Sean to put his stamp on the Alexander’s menu and further showcase his talents.”

Originally from Williamsburg, Carroll relocated to Hilton Head Island with his wife and young daughter.
