We stopped in for lunch, and the shrimp salad was outstanding! This is definitely a new go to place for us! All the ingredients were so fresh, the tomato looked like it was just picked, like the ones we can only get at the farmers market. The service was excellent too. The place is small, but don't let that deceive... More

Not a high volume joint, but the consistent quality of the food and service is a notch above for lunches on Hilton Head

I should first point out that we arranged our informal wedding supper for 12 people from the UK by email and telephone. On top of that we were not entirely certain what we wanted or what the protocol was for using catering services. We spoke directly to Bess, who was amazingly helpful and proactive. She offered great food suggestions, variations... More

We rented a house in Sea Pines to celebrate a family event. Called Bess ahead of time to arrange for a catered meal. Bess is easy and pleasant to work with and her food is very good, reasonable, and plentiful. Deli sandwiches are available as well. The Morning Glory muffins are delicious!

For several years, my family has gone to Hilton Head for Thanksgiving and we go out to a Restaurant for our Traditional meal. This year we decided to order a "meal to go" as we always miss the leftovers. I picked Bess's over the local Kroger and Whole Food offerings thinking It would be better than store bought. Big Mistake.... More

Hey a great place to get a Deli sandwich. Bess's does a great job with a variety of Deli sandwiches to temp your taste buds. And filled with a good portion of meat on your sandwich.

Bess' Deli is a great option for lunch. There is a wide variety of fresh made sandwiches (about $8), soups and salads. The baked ham was baked there, not bought from someone else. I would assume the same for the roast turkey, etc. There are a fewf tables for eating in. We would definitely return.
