If you want to escape the norm on Hilton Head Island, go to Ruby Lee’s. This joint was opened in 2012 by Tim Singleton and his mother, locals with a love for serving up fine southern food, and together they have curated the island’s best blues and jazz club that just so happens to dish out some serious soul food. Locals and visitors alike love this place, and it’s easy to understand why. If there is a ball game going on, you can bet you’ll be able to catch it at Ruby Lee’s, and afterwards you can enjoy local and regional blues singers. Ruby Lee’s is open Monday through Saturday 5 p.m. until. Live music happens every night, and the food is fresh, made to order.

What Makes it Great The menu features staples like fried chicken and pulled pork, as well as lowcountry favorites like rice bowls loaded down with shrimp, sausage, and chicken, and seafood from local fishermen. One thing's for sure, if you’re trying to cut back on your fatty, greasy food options, you’re going to want sit as far away from the kitchen as possible, otherwise your diet is going to go down in flames. Ruby Lee’s food is rich with years of experience in creating soul food dishes. There’s a reason the term “comfort food” exists, and it’s because of joints like Ruby Lee’s.

Who’s Going To Love It This is a great spot to bring a group after a workout, or after you’ve been outside all day. Pull up a seat at the long bar, order a cold local brew, maybe some prime burger sliders, and recover to the sounds of blues and jazz. Most of the blues joints in this area are great for going to see music, but the food is a different story. Ruby Lee’s shows the same amount of love and care for their food as they do when picking a musician to play at the restaurant. Go check out Ruby Lee’s. It’s a great escape from conventional Hilton Head Island cuisine, and you may even find your new favorite musician.

Directions/Regulations Ruby Lee’s sits on Old Wild Horse Road, a very fitting place for such a rootsy dining establishment, and one of the oldest streets on the island. Once you’ve crossed the Bridge to Hilton Head, look for Old Wild Horse Road on your left, about a mile from the end of the bridge. Ruby Lee’s is just down the street on the Right in a small shopping center.
