Once upon a time, there were three Joaquinlings, troll-like creatures that washed up on the shores of Hilton Head during Hurricane Joaquin. They were wet, cold, and ready to eat before making the lives of Hilton Head citizens miserable! That's just what Joaquinlings did. They were attracted to one restaurant with the coolest vibe. It's music reached the three trolls'... More

Stu's is a fantastic little place in a plaza near the beach. Its small, quaint and has amazing sandwiches. The bread tastes as though its freshly baked and the place smells great. The Meatball sub is one of the best I've had. Not sure if this is a chain or not, but it sure has the feel of a small... More

We have made it a tradition to eat at Stu's at least once if not more while we visit Hilton Head. The sandwiches are consistently great. The bread is killer and the amount of meat they put on the sandwiches is like you made it at home, a ton! If you haven't make this place a must visit. Only tip... More

Cool little sub place in Coligny. The islander is my favorite sub there! Their bread is incredibly delicious so I'm sure every sub is good.

This is a perfect spot to get some delicious subs before or after going to the beach. The bread is delicious and there are so many different sandwich options. You can stay and eat here but it's a little small so I usually get mine to go. Friendly knowledgeable staff, nice comfortable atmosphere. Not at all like the other chain... More

DELICIOUS sub! Great bread! So many fun options on the menu of unique subs. Great service, friendly and quick. Not much seating on the inside (patio outside) so good to be aware of for a rainy day.

Do yourself a large favor and stop in for a sub at Stu's. This place is awesome! Everything is fresh including bread, toppings, some condiments are homemade, prices are very reasonable. Stu is always there to greet his guests and make everyone feel special. Can't wait to come back!

My wife and I live in the Charleston area. Hilton Head is only three hours away, but we don't get there much. We have been to Hilton Head three times and eaten at Stu's for six meals. Two of the trips were only one night. Stu's is our first stop when we get to town and our last one on... More

Waiting for our rental to be ready, stumbled on to Stu's. I have to say I was very impressed with the Jedi. Great bread with perfect chew! Fresh sliced cold cuts and perfectly cut veggies. Just the right amount of mayo, oil, and vinegar. Very close to the great sandwich places I remember from my childhood in NJ. Stu's Rocks!

Won't come back here. We gave our orders inside and after everyone else got their order...we finally left. Maybe it's good food but the folks here are a bit clueless. Service is awful

We are a sub shop, the best on the island and you have us listed as closed on a holiday weekend and the page is not allowing me to edit the hours, this is really not good! :( Donna Zigelstein Owner Operator
