Romantic Restaurants in Hilton Head

The Sage Room

Cozy up to a private, romantic dining experience or be entertained at the chef’s table as you sip on your favorite cocktail at The Sage Room, one of the most unique dining experiences Hilton Head Island has to offer. Indulge in some of the island’s favorite appetizers or treat yourself to a 22-ounce Reserve Ribeye escorted by blue cheese potato sage au gratin and haricot verts. But don’t forget to save room for dessert! The Grand Marnier caramelized strawberries served over toasted angel cake garnished with a fudge drizzle is a perfect way to end a romantic night out.

Michael Anthony’s

If it’s hand-made pasta and Italian flair you’re looking for, look no further. This family-owned eatery captures the true essence of a small town trattoria, serving some of the freshest ingredients and award-winning wines on the island. Whether you’re looking for a five course meal or small plates, Michael Anthony’s has a little something for everyone. And don’t worry; if you’re limited on time, be sure to swing by and try the “Sips & Bits” menu from 5:00 - 6:30 p.m. and enjoy three small plate tastings accompanied by three Italian wines.

The Jazz Corner

Voted one of the country’s top “100 Great Jazz Rooms,” The Jazz Corner provides guests with a vibrant atmosphere and world-class entertainment performed every evening. This 99-seat restaurant in Hilton Head features an elegant, Lowcountry-inspired menu with extraordinary service. Must-tries vary from jumbo white shrimp and scallops to bacon-wrapped pork tenderloin, and be sure to treat yourself to a slice of pina colada cheesecake, an island favorite.

Ela’s Blu Water Grille

 Dine like a local at Ela’s Blu Water Grille, a waterfront restaurant with amazing sunset views, fresh seafood and a romantic garden patio perfect for couples looking for a night of peace and serenity. Want seafood right off the boat? Each morning, the executive chef meets local fisherman to get the night’s selection of fresh seafood. If you can’t make it for dinner, don’t sweat it.
