Went here for dinner. Had a 6:30 reservation and we were seated immediately. Server was nice but very inexperienced. He had no idea how the dishes on the menu were prepared. You expect slow service for "island time" but dinner took 3 hours. Food was delicious but portions were excessive. The cornbread is made to order and is worth the 25 min wait. Too full for dessert 🙁
Excellent and informative server. We enj ...
Excellent and informative server. We enjoyed all our appetizers, except the bacon cornbread which was just "ok." The gumbo was delicious with a nice smoky flavor and blackened shrimp lettuce wraps tasty as well. I enjoyed the fried green tomatoes, a favorite of mine. The shrimp wrapped crab cakes were good but not special. My son's pork chop was , however, outstanding, moist, cooked and seasoned perfectly. The catch of the day also delicious. They give you a great deal of food since each entree comes with two sides. Try the cheesy grits. Yum!! The restaurant is on the golf course and you can dine inside or outside. We dined in and were seated by a window with a lovely view. The thing we all noted first after dining was that we were not rushed. We ate at a relaxing pace and were even encouraged by our waitress to relax and enjoy! Would definitely come back!

Live Oak is the sister restaurant of Links. It promised excellent low country Southern Cuisine. And boy did it deliver!
As of tonight this is my favorite restaurant in Savannah/ HHI. From the Skillet pan bacon Corn BREAD, Low Country Crab Cake appetizer, Shrimp wrap crab cakes, and Coastal Empire Mac n Cheese....loaded with seafood. This last dish is so wonderful, we are returning tmw for lunch.
The restaurant, just like Links is architecturally beautiful.... beautiful water views... A true Southern experience...
I can not in good conscience give this landmark restaurant a 5..... I must give it 5+++.
The Jamaican staff are courteous, lovingly attentive, and a most important part of the entire experience. Yeah mon!

This is a wonderful place to eat. Food was great, although menu could have a few more options. Great wine list and the atmosphere both in and out is fantastic. We always eat outside and our server was more than gracious. It's a little pricey and well worth it. We enjoyed seafood and fried green tomatoes outstanding

I wasn't expecting much, even though I had read several positive reviews. I was very impressed. Great setting, great view, and not crowded- a rarity in summer in Hilton Head. Great outdoor dining if you have little ones. The food was sophisticated-- my mahi- mahi was done perfectly with a nice, light sauce. Dessert was also very good. This is a hidden gem, I highly recommend.

Food was really good. Service is usually very good but it was off tonight. Did not get bread after asking three times for it and water glass did not get refilled until I asked for some after dinner. Hopefully it was a one off because it is usually quite good.

Live Oak's ambiance was a perfect balance of elegance with an inviting Low Country style. The food was representative of that same theme. Beer can half chicken was succulent and juicy. The shrimp skewers was a generous portion with a nice delicate flavor. The waiter was attentive and friendly. Best of all was the view of the evening sky over The Heron Point golf course. Breathtaking.

I hesitate to post this because I would like to keep having great access to this restaurant. This is the best run eatery in Sea Pines. The other restaurants are staffed with temp workers from Jamaica while Live Oak has a fantastic core staff with only a few temps. It does not have the view of Coast, but food and service make up for that. Have a drink at the 2nd floor bar at the beach club and walk over to Live Oak for dinner.

So glad my family chose this excellent restaurant for a delicious meal and memorable birthday celebration! Service was friendly and efficient (even thought it took a long time to get and pay the bill on a relatively quiet weeknight) and nearly all the food was outstanding. The fried green tomatoes and cornbread skillet appetizers were devoured quickly -- jalapeno marmalade on the latter was a spicy standout. Fried pork rinds in the bread basket didn't go over well with the girls, but they were nicely seasoned, which was unique and a pleasant surprise for those who've tried other plain ones before. Perfectly cooked shrimp skewers with strawberry bacon jam, mac-and-cheese and collard greens were very satisfying and the shrimp-wrapped crab cakes and cheese grits were equally delicious. Our oldest (10) raved about the kid's pulled pork slider, but our younger (7) one's entree looked and tasted like nothing more than Kraft mac-and-cheese from a box. (It didn't have to be spruced up the same way the homemade "adult" mac-and-cheese was, but be prepared for the difference if you order. Most kids probably prefer the more familiar recipe anyway.) Both girls loved their large bowls of fresh fruit (included) and their choice of cookies from a list of several "side dishes" -- awesome! Kid's place mats with interactive 3D iPhone app were also a cool first. Complimentary key-lime-pie-in-a-mason-jar with sparkling candles added a nice touch and was appreciated and enjoyed by all, but it would have benefited from a little more key lime flavor and fewer graham cracker crumbs. Overall, very tasty and authentic Lowcountry cuisine served by friendly staff and hosted in a beautiful setting inside and out. We highly recommend Live Oak and will definitely return on our next vacation to Hilton Head!

Found Live Oak on a "Top Restaurants of Hilton Head" list on-line. It was #12 overall. We didn't know it was located in the Plantation Golf Resort clubhouse. Despite being a bit hidden in the clubhouse (we followed the sounds out silver, glassware and talking to find it), we were warmly greeted once we found the host stand. Our server Andre was attentive and upbeat. The food was art of a plate. In particular the shrimp wrapped crab cake entree was outstanding. We sat along the windows and had a great view of the beautiful golf course. Overall a very nice time with excellent service. And given the quality of the presentation and flavors of the food, I would add it is actually a strong value as well.

My family and I highly recommend Live Oak to anyone visiting Hilton Head Island. It is a treat that should not be missed. Every single person in the establishment went out of their way to enhance our visit...and the food was AMAZING!!! We will definitely come back here again and again and again.

Absolutely beautiful views out onto Harbourview Golf Course! The food was spectacular. We had the filet and the pork chop and they were delicious! One of the best parts of the meal was the pimento cheese that you get before your meal with crackers and the pretzel roll!!!

Food was great! I got the beef tenderloin and I could cut it with a butter knife. Another member of my group got the crab cakes and they were delicious! I was also very impressed with the kids menu! I will definitely be dining there again.

The food, service and ambiance of Live Oak is always first-class for a special meal with family/friends or a quick dinner for two at the bar. For the night of this review, our server (James) was cordial, professional and attentive. The food, farm to table/southern (shrimp/crabcakes, short ribs, filet mignon and sides), is always delicious, well-prepared and plated. The view of the golf course is gorgeous and there is additional seating outside (covered).

My hubby and I chose to eat at Live Oak to celebrate our 2 year dating anniversary and recent 6 month wedding anniversary. We were in town to get away for the 4th of July weekend. I had requested a window view which was perfect. Our server James was very attentive as was the manager Alex who stopped by several times to check on us. We enjoyed a glass and a half each of the Fume Blanc (James offered to split a third glass between the two of us). Our appetizer was amazing -- Crispy Oyster Lettuce Wraps. My hubby had the special -- meatloaf -- which he said was phenomenal. I had the shrimp skewers which were delicious. James worked with me on my dairy allergy which was much appreciated. We will definitely be back!

Wait staff very slow and not experienced. Nobody in dining room for breakfast but still had to wait for food close to 15 mins for breakfast I shudder to think what it would be like for dinner with a dining room full of people.
