Dining out allows friends and family to form a closer bond than the tradition of arguing over the validity of the word "flibbertigibbet" during heated Scrabble matches. Form a fare-fueled bond with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of American cuisine at Nick's Steak and Seafood in Hilton Head.
Nick's Steak and Seafood boasts a diverse menu brimming with cuisine raised in land, sea, and sandwich environments. The build-your-own burger ($7.49) turns diners into meat architects as they pile on sautéed onion windows, jalapeño shutters, and a bacon rooftop ($0.50 each topping). Sizzling baby back ribs come in halves ($14.99) or wholes ($19.99) and northeast Atlantic salmon ($18.99) takes a detour from its migration to rest deliciously on plates. The 8-ounce filet mignon and crab cake combination ($27.99) pleases diners who can't decide between land and sea, a decision just as difficult as what to drink, with draft beers and margarita specials accompanying Firefly vodka-infused signature cocktails on the drink menu. Owners Josh and Katie display their Pittsburgh pride inside the restaurant, where Steelers fans can watch games on a large-screen TV or blend into Pittsburgh sports memorabilia, where it feels just like home.
Nick's Steak and Seafood
Nestled in among the trees, sunshine, and ferns of Hilton Head, Nick's Steak and Seafood looks like a friendly local joint from the outside. A simple step through the door, however, teleports diners from the Lowcountry to pure Pittsburgh sports mania. Owner Josh and his wife, Katie, both love the Steel City teams, and they celebrate that love with apparel and memorabilia from the Steelers, Penguins, and Pirates all over the walls. To fuel the fanaticism, their chefs dish up a menu of classic surf 'n' turf, which includes filet mignon, and lobster tail.
