Seabrook's Culinary Experience

The most important health benefit offered by The Seabrook of Hilton Head is the opportunity for socialization. Attending special events and parties, along with the camaraderie of our companionable residents are the vital ingredients to happiness and living a long and vibrant life. Of course, it makes those memorable times much more special if you attend a world-class dining experience as well.

Our picturesque waterfront dining room and mouth-watering food are up to par with anything you would enjoy on any major cruise line. It is just another reason why The Seabrook is a unique retirement community.

We kick off each week with our signature Happy Hour every Monday at 5 pm, which includes complimentary wine, beer, soft drinks, and snacks. We do it again on Fridays at 5 pm to get folks ready for the weekend. Music is typically part of this social affair, which brings out the best of our residents’ singing ability.
