Harold's Diner in Hilton Head, South Carolina

“THIS IS NOT BURGER KING YOU DON’T GET IT YOUR WAY. YOU TAKE IT MY WAY, OR YOU DON’T GET THE DAMN THING.”

MY QUALITY TIME AT HILTON HEAD ISLAND

Linda and I are back from our trip to the beach and after all the rain in Ohio seven days of SUN in Hilton Head, South Carolina was wonderful. Just as wonderful was a “New Find” for us “HAROLD’S DINER.” 641 William Hilton Parkway, Hilton Head Island SC 29928 (map)
843-842-9292. A REAL DINER WITH ATTITUDE.

Do you see the reflections of all the cars? Yes, the front parking lot was full. If you're new to the place, beware—there's a good chance you'll get yelled at. Linda (my wife) and I walked in, Harold looked at us and said to me “GLAD YOU BROUGHT YOUR DAUGHTER.” LOL .

sorry The diner is tiny. About a dozen stools line the counter, and about eight more seats with  small tables line the opposite wall. Just looking at their wall is an experience:

beersexA visit to Harold's means setting you diet aside and enjoying the amazing hamburgers and hot dogs served with hand-cut french fries and onion rings. enjoy the crazy bumper stickers and signs and don't forget to read "the rules" for ordering. Bring cash because they don't take credit cards. The guys that run the place try to act mad if you don't follow "the rules" but they don't do it very well - it just makes them more endearing. Food and humor go great together!” Visit Trip Advisor for more info.

“Harold’s Diner is an exception .  Harold’s does not have a website.  They do not advertise. The only Internet notes you will find about them (other than rave reviews by regular diners) is a small notation that they have the “Best burger on the island”. READ MORE

Linda and I love Harold's, and would recommend the experience and the food to all our friends. We are sorry we didn’t get to try their breakfast.

“Their motto: 'Eat here, or we both will starve' says it all!

Don't take the staff's comments personally it is part of the "floor show".

What fun! You have me laughing over my cup of morning coffee. I've never been to Hilton Head but will add Harold's to my list of destinations.

Cheers!

What a fun place! I wonder if Diners and Dives TV show has been there? That first sign (about not being Burger King) would be kind of funny in somebody's kitchen. I can think of a friend of mine who would just love it.
