Top-Shelf Bourbon

Did you know that we here at Street Meet are Bourbon and American Whisky enthusiasts? In the true spirit of America, the tavern keeps a large collection of high-quality whisky on the shelves which is all proudly distilled, bottled, and consumed right here in America.

Booker’s is the best product available from the men and women behind Jim Beam, which is the world’s most popular bourbon. It’s high proof (128.5), does little to diminish the hearty flavor of charred oak and sweet corn in every sip. You can enjoy a glass up, with rocks, or a splash of water for just $9.00

Four Rose’s single barrel is another exceptional bourbon on the top shelf here at the tavern. A single barrel means that all of the whiskey in a given bottle came from one select barrel. Axiomatically, this means that only the finest and high quality barrels are used in these bourbons since they will not be blended with other barrels. A tasty Four Rose’s will only set you back $8.75.

Maker’s Mark is an industry standard when it comes to consistency and quality. A Maker’s on the rocks costs a mere $6.75, and the dilution of the bourbon by the ice tames the smokey texture of this whisky’s finish nicely.

Woodford Reserve small-batch bourbon is another excellent seller here at Street Meet. Priced at $7.50, its an excellent alternative to Four Rose’s. While it is a blended whisky, the smaller batches also requires distillers to be choosy with the barrels used to age the product to create a consistent and powerful taste.

Basil Hayden’s is another selection which we are proud to offer. When Basil Hayden first distilled whiskey from a corn mash George Washington was president. Steeped in tradition, the Basil Hayden method of fermenting, distilling, and aging bourbon remains true to the ways of the past. Also priced at $8.75 it’s become a favorite among many locals.

Bulleit 95  Rye may not be a bourbon as it’s made from a rye grain mash, but that doesn’t mean it is any less delicious. With a flavor that’s round, sweet, and sugary, it’s the perfect desert for a meal filled with beers and bratwurst. At $7.50 the value is hard to beat.

In addititon to our top-shelf bourbons, we also carry Jim Beam white-label, Wild Turkey 101, and Wild Turkey Rye for those with less expensive palettes. If you’re in the mood for old-fashioned, American whisky, look no further than Street Meet the America Tavern.

The Battle for Ohio

With a huge win over the Ravens this past week, the Browns are set to attack the top of the division, the Cincinnati Bengals. The Browns will be on the road on the 17th of November hosted by a very good Bengals squad. Andy Dalton struggled last Sunday while our current man-under-center Jason Campbell kept us in the game all four quarters. The defense will have their hands full up-front with one of the highest ranked offensive lines in Cincinnati, led by veteran Andrew Whitworth, but as the previous week has shown, if you can disrupt Dalton, he”s prone to mistakes. Here at Street Meet, the Official Browns Backer”s Bar of Hilton Head Island, we”ll have the Brownies on every TV we have. If you”re in town, come and root for Cleveland with the locals and enjoy great food and drinks. Pabst Blue Ribbon pitchers are only six bucks, and Bloody Mary”s are three bucks all day long. Let”s go Browns!! Like us on facebook for daily updates.

The Islands Best Bartender!

Who has the best staff on the Island when it comes to late night bartending? You guessed it, Street Meet the American Tavern. Neil Beatty, our lead late-night bartender has been at it for over a decade, and his tasty cocktails, speedy service, and jovial laugh are proof of his experience. Recently Neil was honored by his favorite patrons, as well as the rest of the island, and awarded Bartender of the Year by the Island Packet Reader’s-Choice Poll. Over 155,000 votes were tallied this year during the poll and Neil had stiff competition all across the Island. We caught up with Neil after he was presented the award and asked him what his secret was. “Experience is a huge plus in this business, and I’ve got my fair share of it – but what I believe is most important is attitude. Maintaining a good attitude is essential in keeping customers happy and comfortable. Whether I’ve seen them a hundred times before, or for the very first time, I strive to keep my customers with a beverage in their hand, and a smile on their face.” Neil works Thursday through Sunday and can’t wait to meet you, so head on over to the tavern where the kitchen doesn’t close until 1:00 A.M. Street Meet, home of the Islands best bartender – call us at 843-842-2570 for directions and daily specials.

The Islands Best Hot Dog!

There’s a reason why we here at Street Meet win “Islands Best Hot Dog Award” year in and year out. We offer three different premium-style hot dogs here at the Meet. The first is our award winning Hoffman German Frank. The Hoffman is a classic-style hot dog made in Syracuse, New York. It’s a combination of three meats: beef, pork, and veal; it has a distinct flavor and comes wrapped in a natural skin casing similar to a sausage. The Hoffman brand is number one when it comes to premium hot dogs. In addition to the traditional German Frank, we also offer the Hoffman Snappy Griller. A white dog made with veal and pork, it has a mellow flavor and is perfect with a variety of different mustards. Last but certainly not least, we also offer the Nathans Famous dog that put Coney Island on the map. Made with 100% beef, the Nathans is a skinless hot dog that ball-park-frank enthusiasts are sure to love. Whether you’re in the mood for something traditional, or contemporary, Street Meet has a high-quality dog for you. Come out and see what you’ve been missing! Street Meet, where the kitchen is open until 1:00 A.M. and high-quality food, meets a no-compromise attitude. Call us at 843-842-2570 for more information.

Browns Versus Packers

This past week the Browns suffered a tough loss at the hands of the Detroit Lions. After establishing an early lead in the first half, the brownies wavered in the fourth quarter, and fall to a .500 win percentage at three wins and three losses. What didn”t waver this week was the support from the Browns Backers of Hilton Head. A patio filled with visitors and locals alike cheered on the Browns until the final whistle here at Street Meet. The weather may be fair here on Hilton Head, but fan support certainly can”t be described as fair-weather here at the Tavern. Win or lose, rain or shine, you can bet that the Cleveland Contingency will be here in force cheering for diving catches and enjoying complimentary jello shots for every Brownie touchdown. Don”t miss out on the great food, drinks, and fun this weekend when the Brownies take on the Green Bay Packers at 4:25 P.M. local time. If you need more information, give us a call at 843-842-2570. Let”s Go Browns! Continue reading

Browns versus Lions

This past Thursday, the Browns made up for a disappointing end to the Indians season with a win over the Buffalo Bills. Unfortunately, Hoyer, the up-start Quarterback was injured during a slide and will be out for the season with a torn anterior-crucial ligament. This brings Brandon Weeden back into the fold and under-center for next week’s contest against the Detroit Lions. With three wins, Cleveland is sitting on top of the division and will be looking to keep moving forward on October 13th.

If you’re a Cleveland fan and you’ll be on Hilton Head Island on the 13th there’s no better place to watch the Browns than Street Meet American Take-Out and Tavern. As the official Brown’s Backers Bar of Hilton Head Island, you’ll be able to watch the Browns with up to two hundred other fans. It may not be First-Energy Stadium, but the weather is a whole lot better and so is the food! Three-dollar Bloody Mary’s and six-dollar Pabst Blue Ribbon pitchers are available all day long as well as our full menu. Stop by and support the Browns with the local Browns Backer chapter, and a fast, fun bar staff.

The Ohio-Bowl

With a win over the Vikings last week, the Cleveland Browns stand poised to carry their momentum into tomorrow’s game versus the Cincinnati Bengals. After losing Trent Richardson to a trade with Indianapolis, and Brandon Weeden to a thumb injury, the team proved capable of handling adversity. While the victor of the Ohio-Bowl, as some are dubbing this week’s matchup, has yet to be determined, the best place to watch the Browns on Hilton Head this Sunday is definitive: Street Meet the American Tavern. As Hilton Head Island’s only “Browns Backers Bar” registered with the NFL, Street Meet is by far the premiere location for a Browns fan on Sunday. With fan group sizes ranging between 100-200 people, outdoor and indoor seating, delicious food and cold beer, and unbeatable weather, the only place a Browns fan would rather be is in First Energy Stadium.

Come out and Join the friendly staff and rest of the Browns fans on Hilton Head this weekend at Street Meet! Call us for more information at: 843-842-2570, or visit our Facebook page at
