Summer is the biggest season for restaurants on Hilton Head Island, but one popular eatery won’t be opening its doors anytime soon after being destroyed in a weekend fire. 


That’s what the owner of The Smokehouse called yesterday’s fire which ripped through his business.

One day later the shock was still setting in, and his restaurant destroyed.

A passerby noticed those flames about 6 AM Sunday and called for help.

Fire officials battled that blaze for more than 3 hours. pumping water into various areas – and fighting much of the fire from the inside out.
