Dozens of the island’s finest restaurants are helping you watch your budget by offering “early bird” specials and significant discounts. Where to find them? Right on the web. Alexander’s, which has been on the island since 1977, is a good example. For under $15, you’ll get a three-course meal, featuring entrees like Stuffed Filet of Flounder and Grilled Mahi Mahi. The very popular CQ’s in Harbour Town takes a slightly different approach, offering a $25 gift certificate on your next visit.
The way to learn about specials and discounts at Boathouse II is to sign up for their newsletter. Skillets Café has an on-line 10% discount you can print out. Or you can join their club and get special offers via email. Frankie Bones “early bird” menu features entrees like prime rib, spring and seafood platter, and seven more for $12.99.
If you want to check out just about every “early bird” special for area restaurants you’ll find them at Hilton Head Island Restaurants Magazine site. The site is also full of information about the entire restaurant and club scene on the island.
Two monthly magazines have an excellent on-line presence and offer good, local information that includes restaurant features. Celebrate Hilton Head (CH2) includes a free “local card” that will get you discounts at over 140 local restaurants and businesses. The dining section of Hilton Head Monthly magazine has features on both new and well established restaurant on Hilton Head.
