Those who give you their food, give you their heart. Managing the daily challenges and long hours that come with being in the restaurant business reflect a unique ability – few are up to the task but Ginny and Rocky Whitehead of Bomboras Grille relish it. After moving to Hilton Head Island from Cincinnati, the Whiteheads purchased The Art Café in 2008, and then launched Bomboras Grille in early 2011 at its original location off Coligny Circle. Their plan was to have a family business, a few in fact, and soon their daughters, Stacey and Brittany and son Taylor, all became involved in the day-to-day operations and all aspects of running their successful enterprises.
The members of this entrepreneurial family bring their talents and strengths together which has earned Rocky the nickname “Norm at the end of the bar,” since he enjoys chatting with the restaurant’s customers. If you want to engage Rocky in a conversation, start with the Cincinnati Bengals and dress in orange and black on game day or any day, for that matter.
