Visiting restaurants you can’t find at home is often a favorite thing to do when people go on vacation. Now is the time to experience new things and new flavors, and Hilton Head has tons of both! Brunch is a quintessential vacation activity, and lucky for you, there are plenty of restaurants that cater to this delightful Southern tradition. Here are our favorite Hilton Head brunch spots for you to indulge your taste buds before a fun day of shopping or beach hopping!

Upscale Hilton Head Brunch Spots

Chez Georges
Named one of the best restaurants on the island, Chez Georges is a neighborhood bistro serving French cuisine with a Lowcountry accent. They use locally sourced ingredients from around South Carolina’s Lowcountry in French-inspired dishes like their Omelette au Fromage and Tartine Au Possion.

Links, An American Grill
For an iconic Americana brunch experience, head over to Links, an American Grill at the Sea Pines Resort. Their extensive menu has everything from Avocado Toast to Filet Mignon and Eggs, so no matter how big (or small) your appetite may be, their brunch menu has you covered.

Named after the God of the Sea, Poseidon is a mid-island destination for some of the best dining, shopping, and entertainment found in Hilton Head. And their brunch menu is no exception!

For something a bit different, Relish offers an elegant and eclectic fusion of Southern and Asian culinary traditions. You can Build-Your-Own Omelette for brunch or try a Pork Pao (Taiwan Burger) or Bang Bang Shrimp as an early lunch starter. No matter what, we guarantee you’ll be glad you tried something new!

Jane Bistro & Bar
For good food and good vibes in a relaxed modern coastal setting, Jane Bistro & Bar strives to make everyone feel at home. Their Sunday Brunch menu is served from 11a-2p and has some pretty indulgent options like their Lowcountry Breakfast or the Breakfast Birria Quesadilla.

Casual Hilton Head Brunch Spots

A Lowcountry Backyard Restaurant
You don’t always have to get fancy for brunch, and A Lowcountry Backyard Restaurant is proof of that. Considered a hot spot for local island seafood with the best Lowcountry shrimp and grits in the entire Palmetto State, brunch here will surely leave you full and satisfied!

Nectar Farm Kitchen
If you’re a big fan of farm-to-table, then Nectar Farm Kitchen is right up your alley. You can taste the difference in their farmhouse atmosphere with the house-made dressings, sauces, soups, and desserts the chefs prepare daily with fresh-locally sourced ingredients.

Palmetto Bay Sunrise Café
The Palmetto Bay Sunrise Café serves up breakfast all day in a casual setting with dog-friendly outdoor seating! They have plenty of gluten-free and vegan options, so no matter the dietary restrictions in your party, everyone will find something they love!

Watusi Café
If sustainability is a priority in your life, then you’ll love the Watusi Café. They source all natural meats, fresh fruits, and veggies from local South Carolina farmers and lessen their impact on the environment by using gluten-free hay straws, biodegradable plant base cups and lids, and sugar cane to-go containers. Their tasty brunch menu also offers several gluten-free and vegetarian options.

British Open Pub
No brunch is complete without bottomless mimosas, and you can find the best at British Open Pub along with fresh baked complimentary scones for every brunch order. Be sure to fill up on some Watson’s Steak and Eggs or Bananas Foster French Toast so the bottomless mimosas don’t do you in before the day even gets started!
