As we approach Valentine’s Day, we wanted to share with you some of the most romantic restaurants for dining with your sweetheart on Hilton Head Island. From waterfront views to gourmet cuisine, here are some of our favorite romantic Hilton Head establishments:

Skull Creek Boathouse

Skull Creek Boathouse, at 397 Squire Pope Road, offers a delicious view along with the food. Head over at sunset and watch the sun go down over beautiful Skull Creek. Dine indoors or out, selecting from their menu of fresh seafood or American favorites with a twist. They also offer the “Dive Bar,” a raw bar with fresh sushi, oysters and more. They’ll be hosting a special Valentine’s Day party with live music from South Beach Orchestra from 6-10 p.m. on Feb. 14.

ELA’s Blu Water Grille

ELA’s Blu Water Grille also offers a waterfront view but this time of Broad Creek at Shelter Cove Harbour located off Highway 278 mid island. With a menu of fresh catches and steaks, this popular restaurant has hosted numerous celebrities, including Paula Abdul. Enjoy a leisurely stroll through Shelter Cove Harbour and Marina as the sun sets before or after your meal. If you’re loved one enjoys shopping, there are plenty of unique options in Shelter Cove.

Vine Bistro and Wine Bar

Feel like you just stepped into a European bistro at this Greenwich Village-style restaurant near Coligny Beach. At Vine, located at 1 North Forest Beach Drive, the owners warn that you should “prepare to be bumped!” because the restaurant is small and cramped just like you’d find in Europe. The menu is fresh farm-to-table produce and inspired by Napa and Sonoma Valley. Dress is club casual and no kids are allowed, so leave the little ones at home with a sitter J.

Truffles Café           

Located in both Sea Pines Center and on Pope Avenue, Truffles is a cute little café with outdoor seating with fireplaces and eclectic décor inside. Their recipes use local products whenever possible and include sandwiches, burgers, salads and entrees like Mango Salmon, Chicken Pot Pie and Steak and Fries. This is a more affordable option if you’re not up for dropping $100 on your Valentine’s day dinner J.

Trattoria Divina

Got a hunkering for Italian? This is your spot! Located in the Park Plaza Shopping Center at 33 Office Park Road tucked back a bit in a corner, Trattoria Divina is wonderfully decorated with Italian-inspired murals from the students at Savannah College of Art and Design. The restaurant serves Northern Italian dishes with fresh pasta made daily, along with a complimentary prosecco and the Chef’s Amuse.

Where will you dine this Valentine’s Day? Let us know if we missed any of your favorite romantic spots.
