I have been coming to HHI for almost 30 years after my parents retired to the Island. I have tried most places and have a few favorites. We were in town for spring break with friends and decided on an adults night out for dinner and reviews led us to Lucky Rooster. What an amazing evening we had!
Started with SPECTACULAR service by Chris. The guy knows his job and performs it exceptionally. We enjoyed a few of the house cocktails which only got us more excited for the food. We ordered a bottle of wine and they happened to be out of it. The chef personally selected two alternates we may like - despite them being a little more expensive than what we picked. They were explained and offered at the same price as our original bottle. Needless to say - we were not disappointed.

Onto the food! Again, an interesting story. One friend ordered the Bacon Wrapped Trout. A little while after our order, Chris came back and advised that the owner and chef had decided that the trout was not up to par and they did not want to serve it - it was being removed from the menu for the evening. He profusely apologized and asked if another selection could be made and her meal was on the house?!? Handled so well and they did not need to buy her meal but it was a classy gesture. Our table enjoyed two NY strips, a whole marinated fish and shrimp and grits. the sides were asparagus, broccoli, the grits and they brought a bonus of the mac and cheese. While all outstanding, the mac and cheese was beyond reproach.

Our friends were beyond impressed and we thoroughly enjoyed the service, atmosphere and dining experience at Lucky Rooster..Can't wait to come back this summer to enjoy it again.

We had heard that it was a new restaurant on the island that was a must try. The six of us enjoyed bantering with Stephen but had mixed reviews of the meals. Scallops were tasty, the pork chop was tender top layer and a chewier lower layer, the fried chicken was excellent, the shrimp and grits good but the lamb was very small. We also ordered spring vegetables which has what tasted uncooked. The okra was tasty. All in all over rated.

We have been coming to the island for many years and have gone to several restaurants. How did we miss this place? The food is excellent, the options may look a bit limited but you can't go wrong. If you like burbon, you have found your nervana here, the even have pappy van Winkle at $200 for 2 oz shot. The Mac and cheese side is pretty awesome, as was the NY strip steak. Extensive wine list too. You're going to love it.

We were visiting Hilton Head for a very last minute spring break trip and were "lucky" enough to grab a reservation at Lucky Rooster! We had a party of 6 - 4 adults and 2 children and were sat at a fun booth!! The energetic atmosphere and friendly service started the dinner off just right!! The kids ( and adults) enjoyed writing and coloring the paper table cloth cover and the adults enjoyed some fun cocktails!! We opted to all get different itxmsoff the menu so we could all try! Yep - everything looked that good & it tasted that good as well!!!! While this isn't a beach or water front restaurant it is a restaurant you should try out - or go back to as we will - when you visit Hilton Head
