My impression was that they were trying to be 5 star restaurant in a very rual area. Should have concentrated on being a family style, local restaurant than trying to copy the high end restaurants in Hilton Head.

Unfortunately the place has closed permanently and most of the interior sold off! Don't know what Frank the Owner / Chef will be doing?

Don't judge the book by its cover. Wonderful food? The lamb was excellent. The she crab soup was great! Will go again!

Over the past five years, I have enjoyed so many wonderful meals at the Old House. Chef Frank Crutchfield takes all he learned from Chef Prudhomme and gives it a Carolina twist. Whether it is a generous Shrimp Creole or perfectly manicured and spiced Crispy...More

This is worth being off the beaten path. It does look a little rough from the outside but once you step inside you enter a quiet little restaurant with good food! The staff is great. Great place for dinner or to just stop in for...More

Love this restaurant and want it to succeed, but it has slipped a little. They have been without a liquor license for a while; (BYOW) works for us, but this cut into their profits. Road construction in front of the restaurant is a temporary annoyance,...More

Marsh views under hundred year old oaks. Have a romantic dinner or good times with friends. Fresh seafood, salmon, flounder and shrimp dishes. Local dishes as well as some New Orleans favorites Chef Frank Crutchfield was taught by Chef Paul Prudhomme at K Paul's Louisiana Kitchen. We run four to five daily specials, ask your server to recommend a wine from our 200+ wine list. Frank calls it upscale redneck dinning.......the best of both worlds, a one of a kind place.
