Restaurant Spotlight: The Dunes House

If there’s one thing that signals summer at Palmetto Dunes, it’s the bustling patio at The Dunes House. This exclusive beachfront restaurant is open to guests and residents of Palmetto Dunes Oceanfront Resort and is the place to be for stunning views, easy summer eats, and a good time.

Whether you’re grabbing a light lunch before hitting the beach, or enjoying live music on a warm, summer night, or swinging by for one of The Dunes House’s epic Lowcountry Boils, you’ll love the casual, laidback atmosphere, frozen cocktails, and friendly service.

The Restaurant

The Dunes House is open for lunch and dinner, weather permitting. Its patio is extra large because it has to be—all of the cooking is done in The Dunes House’s outdoor kitchen. So even if you stop by for a casual drink, we bet that once the smell of the grill hits your nose, you’ll be reaching for the food menu in no time.

There’s limited on-site parking at The Dunes House so it’s no wonder that many prefer to get there by bike. Between April 1 and September 30, you also have the option of taking the free Dunes Buggy shuttle to and from The Dunes House, for the ultimate convenience. Although, once you’re there, relaxing under the shade of an umbrella (or soaking up the sun) and taking in the sights and sounds of Palmetto Dunes’ beautiful sandy beach just steps away, we bet you won’t want to leave.

The Food

When you’re working in an outdoor kitchen, the grill is your star player—and boy, do the chefs at The Dunes House know how to grill! Their fish tacos are legendary, the burgers grilled to perfection, and their Carolina BBQ chicken sandwich has just the right amount of sweet and heat.

Looking for something a little lighter? Grab a salad topped with grilled shrimp or share a plate of nachos. For those who are on a family getaway, there’s even a special menu just for kids! The Dunes House also offers catering for special events, making it the perfect venue for a family reunion, beachfront wedding, or corporate event.

The Drinks

The only thing that rivals the incredible beachside food menu at The Dunes House is their drinks menu! It’s definitely one of our favorite places to grab a drink. Craving an ice-cold beer on a hot afternoon? The Dunes House offers a selection of domestic, specialty, and seasonal selections.

If you really want to try what the bartenders at The Dunes House are known for, go for one of the frozen drinks. The frozen margaritas are blended with Sauza Gold Tequila and classic flavors, or if you’re feeling more adventurous, try one of the house specialties like the Tiger Paw or the Carolina Beach.

If you’re into more of a “stirred, not shaken” kind of cocktail, try the Ruby Mule or any of their cocktails on the rocks.

And, since we're in the South, you can bet there's tea on the menu if you're looking for a Lowcountry sip that's non-alcoholic.

The Events

Did you know that there are special events happening at The Dunes House almost every day of the month? Live local entertainment livens up the atmosphere every Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday nights during peak season. If you’re visiting in the summer, swing by on Wednesday for a treat! From Memorial Day through to the end of August, Wednesdays are Lobster Night when they serve up fresh lobster dinners with all the fixings. Looking for an authentic Lowcountry dining experience? The Lowcountry Boils at The Dunes House are a must! They take place on Saturday nights throughout the summer. Check the latest events calendar to see what’s going on.

When it comes to casual beachside dining and laidback Lowcountry entertainment, The Dunes House is the place to be! What’s your favorite thing about The Dunes House? Tell us in the comments! And don’t forget to share your Dunes House photos with us on social media using #PalmettoDunes.
