Visited mid-afternoon on a Tuesday. Tucked away in the shopping area that also has the Hilton Head Brewing Company. As you enter, its very dark compared to other bars on the island - very much a Lodge feel. The use the Digital Pour boards over the bar, which I always appreciate in terms of sharing perfectly up to date information on their draft selection. Selection was 36 beers, with specific highlights of local offerings (13 locals when I visited). They had both Hilton Head brewing and River Dog which are not on at most spots. Beers are served by glass, 5 oz sample or growler measures for all beers. Friendly service. I didnít have food, though appeared to be a standard bar menu. This was the best tap selection I saw on the Island. One note, the hours listed on the door were 4pm to close though opened The Lodge opened at 11:30 on the day I visited.
76 = ★★★ (Worth the visit, must for locals, and visitors with time)
I only use the total score, not the component parts.

Decent place for the beach. 36 taps with mostly southern and national craft beers. During August they are mostly summer varieties. I was there for 3 dollar pint nightso this provided great value.

Perhaps the best on tap selection on Hilton head, if a bit heavy on pale ales and IPAs. Came for beer and appetizers in the late afternoon; will definitely come back on the next trip to try the food.

Decent selection if not from the area. Trivia night was not fun. Funny moustache from bartender.

A great place to buy beer. There is a restaurant right across the courtyard called One Hot Mamaís, which has great food, but not much in the beer department. So I bought a couple of pints off the draft at the Lodge and brought them over to go with the burgers. Iíll go back to buy a few bottles before I leave the island. Great place the barmaid knew the beers well including all about the local beer culture, which is very small. The only place around for buying growlers.

Right next to One Hot Mamaís BBQ and the Hilton Head Brewing Co. This is a bar for drinking beer and thatís about it. Decent decor, lots of hunting lodge theme. Service was mediocre, music was too loud, and thereís no food served. However, the beer list was pretty impressive and the prices werenít too bad. One nice thing is that they did sell 5 oz. pours, so if you were in the mood to sample a bunch, it wouldnít be too expensive. Best thing to do would be to have dinner at Hilton Head Brewing (great food, mediocre beers) or One Hot Mamaís (good BBQ), then head to The Lodge for lots and lots of good draught beer.

I stumbled upon this place on accident and was very pleasantly suprised. Apparently it used to be a martini bar but just recently switched to a growler bar. They have around 35 different beers on tap with an excellent variety. All pints were pretty much $5-7 if I remember correctly (been a few weeks) and the growler fills were $15-20. The only food they have is hamburgers/hot dogs/fries type stuff however they were very tasty and very cheap.
The bartender at the time, Chris, was very knowledgable and was very prompt. The place also had two billiards tables that were in ok shape - better than most bars. Overall I was very pleased to have found this place and will defintely be returning.
