    I have celiac so I am extremely careful about where I dine out. Low Country has a phenomenal menu for both celiacs and the normal folks like my husband. I explained to the server that I was celiac and she explained to me that the owner has always tried to be gluten friendly but this past year has taken steps to make all of their sauces gluten free! You can get just about any sandwich GF and they use Udis bread. I had the BBQ meatloaf with apple slaw and creamcheese mashed potatoes. It was delicious! The meatloaf is made with potato chips instead of bread crumbs and the BBQ sauce was yummy and GF. They have a GF beer but I Opted for wine. I cannot wait to go back next week and try something else. And have their GF banana pudding made with homemade GF shortbread cookies!!!

    Very good and no problems at all. We are here twice during our stay. Had the bbq chicken sandwich with pimento cheese the first time which was great! The second visit I ordered the burger and it wasn't the best (but that was my fault because the waitress warned me that the bun makes the burger and obviously I couldn't have the bun)

    Extremely disappointed. Attempted dinner here and left because of the wait time. Went for lunch the next day. Ordered the crab dip and felt sick right after, too fishy. Ordered the potato chip meatloaf with cream cheese whipped potatoes. The meatloaf was cold and the potatoes were barely warm. Terrible service. They returned our meatloaf back and it was still not hot!! Barely ate the food, spent all that money and still got sick.

    Cute dining spot. We ate brunch here on Sunday. The gf crab dip was rich and thick, cheesy and full of delicious crab. We had the gf shrimp and grits. The portions were generous and the dish was hot, and full of perfectly cooked shrimp and creole sausage. We had a gf banana pudding. I did not care for it as it had a strong cream cheese taste rather than a whipped creme/ pudding flavor that I am used to. It was served in a mason jar (so cute), had fresh banana slices and was not overly sweet. My daughter really liked it. The host and server were attentive but not overly friendly. It was a scorcher of an afternoon hitting nearly 100 degrees when we arrived and we sat outside in the shady patio. Even though it was lovely, it was just so hot. There were other patrons there with children playing games. This place is charming, casual with an authentic atmosphere. There are lots of gf choices sited on the regular menu.

    Lots of great GF options! I had the crab dip and shrimp burger on GF bread and the waitress (who was extremely friendly) confirmed that the burger was cooked in a separate pan and not on the general grill. A must try!

    Great service. Fantastic food. The gf shrimp & grits were amazing! My husband had a gf meatloaf sandwich and it was great too! I'm extremely sensitive and I had no issues after eating here. We will likely go back before we leave.

    Great food and great service! They had a large variety of gluten free options and absolutely delicious food. Get there early as they do have very limited seating. We got there at 5pm and had to wait about 30-45 minutes.

    Lowcountry backyard restaurant is the best restaurant in Hilton head. My husband had the shrimp and grits that was the best he's ever had; I ordered the GlutenFree meatloaf grits and greens Yum! Then we shared the banana pudding, Wow, was that great. We also had a very knowledgeable and energetic waitress. The atmosphere is cozy and unique and everything is homemade.

    Great meatloaf made with potato chips instead of breadcrumbs! Several good sides, too. Not a lot of options for gluten free, but what they have is yummy! They also fixed me a great banana pudding without the wafers.
