Since 1982, Tom and Dianne have owned and operated Reilleys. Their original pub they first established may not be there anymore, but they have remained on the island and have even opened up a pub in Hawaii.
In 1982 the Reilley family opened their first pub on the south end of Hilton Head Island. For over thirty years they’ve catered to millions of visitors, served amazing food, and contributed to Hilton Head’s stellar reputation as one of the best destinations in the southeast. That kind of experience produces the best food, atmosphere, and service you can ask for. Since 1982, Tom and Dianne have owned and operated Reilleys.

Hey, if your business is taking off, why not open your doors in paradise? We don’t blame you Tom and Dianne, good for y’all.
What Makes it Great Reilley’s North End Pub has a menu that ranges from seafood to burgers and sandwiches. They offer brunch starting at 11:30 in the morning, and they have a killer happy hour from 4 to 7 in the evening. Some menu all stars are the fish and chips, the Blarney Burger (this is an Irish joint if you couldn’t tell by the name) piled high with an eight ounce patty, lettuce, tomatoes, onions, and pickles on top of a fresh baked kaiser bun, and beef tenderloin-no messing around on this one; served with bleu cheese and a whiskey pepper sauce with potatoes, the way steaks were created to be served.
Who’s Going to Love It The atmosphere is laid back, like that of most restaurants on the island, and if you sit at the bar long enough, you’re bound to make some friends. It’s just that kind of place. If you love local, friendly bars, head here. Granted the regulars you meet at Reilley’s probably won’t want to join you for a ten mile trail run...but they’ll definitely drink a beer or five with you.
Directions Once you cross over the Hilton Head Island Bridge, look for Matthews Drive on your Right. Reilley’s is a block down the road. This is a moderately priced restaurant, but the food would have you thinking otherwise. The Reilley’s know how to run a fine restaurant, and the staff is friendly and ready to show you a good time...and serve you great food and drinks all evening.
