Major restaurant reno goes from rustic Italian to modern beach bar

Located at 14 Folly Field Road on Hilton Head Island, owners of the Leffew Restaurant Group have joined with Charleston-based David Thompson Architects and Tom Lennon Construction for the massive renovation of an existing restaurant space, a former Carrabba’s Italian Grill. Lucky Beach Bar + Kitchen will offer seating for about 250 guests, with welcoming indoor and outdoor dining areas, an exciting bar, space for live music, a dedicated to-go pick up window and bicycle parking connected to the town bike paths.


“We are creating a modern, comfortable, tropical, and relaxed beachy vibe,” said managing partner David Leffew. “We are opening up the walls with floor-to-ceiling windows, building fresh new outdoor seating areas and large openings into the building to create a fun indoor and outdoor atmosphere for guests.”


However, sometimes you just want to grab something to go — Lucky Beach Bar + Kitchen will feature a dedicated take-out window that will be open from breakfast to late night and offer great coffee and espresso drinks along with creative grab-and-go food options. Coupled with an online ordering system, the take-out window will make picking up meals easy for those who want to take food to the beach or back home.
