Went for the noon buffet at Dye's. The two meats were fried chicken and fried pork chops, maybe the best I've had for both. Also was corn beef and cabbage that was delicious.
The real stars though are the vegetables, as Dye said, cooked in the 'Gullah tradition' with few added spices except sea salt, pepper, and sugar. All the vegetable dishes-lima beans, collard greens, sweet potatoes, fried okra, were absolutely delicious. You could tell everything was prepared by someone who knows food and cares deeply.
The Mac and Cheese as well as the home style egg salad, coleslaw, and corn bread were equally delicious. I always wondered why people talked about "Low Country food" because previously I was not impressed in the least by the dishes. Now, after tasting Dye's food, I understand the popularily of Low Country cooking. The restaurant is very nice also, very homey, the servers are frienedly without being overbearing. The restaurant is hard to find since it is in the back of Pine Station Mall, but worth the trouble to look. I think we have found another 'must stop' restaurant in Hilton Head.Edited: 16 March 2010, 19:20
