Big Jim’s BBQ, Burgers and Pizza opened in 2012 at the Robert Trent Jones course clubhouse.
Big Jim’s is open seven days a week for breakfast, lunch and dinner. They serve signature Southern dishes, including barbeque, gourmet burgers and grilled pizza and much more. It also offers a kid’s menu, as well as a wine and beer menu. The restaurant has big screen TVs and expanded outdoor seating overlooking the Jones course. Happy Hour specials run from 4-7 p.m. and enjoy live entertainment Wednesdays and Saturdays from 6-9 p.m. Take out and catering are also available by calling 843-785-1165.
Big Jim’s, named for Jim Self, a visionary who acquired Palmetto Dunes in 1979, resides in the heart of the resort.
It’s close to the beach, the Palmetto Dunes Tennis Center and the Palmetto Dunes General Store. It overlooks Palmetto Dunes’ award-winning, oceanfront Robert Trent Jones golf course.
“Big Jim,” the name Self’s grandchildren affectionately called him, was a successful entrepreneur and an avid sportsman who also loved to cook. He swore by a recipe for Tennessee coleslaw he found while scouting a potential acquisition and perfected his own special barbeque sauce, both of which are featured on the menu.
“Drawing on the success of our beachfront Dunes House, we believe that Big Jim’s will become a popular dining destination.
It combines a broad, affordable menu with a spectacular view of the Jones course,” says vice president of resort operations for Palmetto Dunes. “We’ve listened to what our guests have asked for. We responded by providing a family-friendly restaurant that is a short walk or bike ride from anywhere in the resort. It also offers a great view from our outdoor dining patio of the summer HarbourFest fireworks over at Shelter Cove Harbour.”
Other dining options within Palmetto Dunes include the Dunes House, which is located on the beach and is open to guests of the resort, as well as Arthur’s Grille at the Arthur Hills golf course and the Fazio Grille at the George Fazio golf course. Alexander’s is located at the front of the resort and is open for dinner. The hotels on the property offer several restaurants, including HH Prime and the XO Lounge.
