This was my second time eating here and I definitely need to put this on the list of places to go when I visit HHI. The Painted Desert Soup is AMAZING. Not only is the artistry incredible, the soup is delicious! Everyone in our party...More

We first came here at the suggestion of our insurance person and it’s rapidly becoming a favorite. Great southwestern cuisine! Try the crab cakes or the vegetarian combo platter. Guacamole was superb and the atmosphere lovely.

We were a group of six and were seated immediately. The décor was very nice and the food and beverages were excellent as was the service by the wait staff. The Chimichangas were very good

Marshall runs a great shop and has for many years! It’s always hard choosing the right meal as there are many 5 star dinners to pick. The painted desert soup and the ribeye burrito are two of the best.

We were looking for a place with real green chili and they have it! The painted soup is a must. 2 stories and a roof top bar. Food was upscale and delicious.

The family decided we needed a break from the great seafood on the island. Picked this restaurant based on the great reviews, and we weren't disappointed. The ribeye burrito was AMAZING! They use a excellent cut, no mystery/skirt steak here! The rest of the families'...More

We bring the very best of Southwestern culture and cuisine home to the Lowcountry. Our menu has been an Islanders" preferred dining spot for over 20 years and with dishes like our famous grouper, to our bone-in cowboy cut black angus ribeye, our outrageous chimichanga to even lobster fajitas, we're sure to have a new favorite waiting for you. From the sounds of the live Ranchero guitar player to the smells rising from our mesquite grill, Santa Fe Cafe is a much welcomed reprieve for the senses. Even when you're outside underneath the stars on our Rooftop Cantina, we've got you covered.
