It Just Doesn't Get Much Better Than This!

Met my husband for lunch after his round at the Ocean Course. We were given a perfectly gorgeous day at the end of January, so dining on the porch was amazing!!! I had the fish tacos. They were good, but the onion rings were every bit as good as all of the reviewers have said! I admit, I do... read more

Stopped in for snacks and a drink. Food was very good. Sliders and crab cake both were very good. recommend the bread pudding as well. Always high quality and even better when you are there for sunset.

I had lunch at the Ryder Cup Bar during my last visit to Kiawah. The views are exceptional and I highly recommend their burgers. I try to have lunch there every time I visit Kiawah. You cannot beat the views and the food and service is also very good.

While playing Dolphin Point, we were partnered with a local. He informed us that we needed to visit the Ryder Cup Bar for their shrimp and we were not disappointed. Service/food/prices were all a-one.

We stopped by this golf course-country club while riding our bicycles on Kiawah Island. The restaurant had a nice atmosphere and overlooked the ocean. The service was prompt and friendly and the food was very good.

Kiawah island is a paradise of great homes, oaks with Spanish Moss and untouched marsh lands along several golf courses. I have not seen any island as beautiful along the Atlantic coastline. The Ryder Cup will require that you stop and get a pass at the guard gate and then a 5 mile drive through the scenery. We stayed indoors... More

Eat at end of the day and watch the golfers come in! Eating outside was great in the fall. A beautiful view which makes you feel like you are living the good life! Great casual food

If you are on this island then this is the place to enjoy a dining experience. Gentle breeze, gorgeous vistas and a lush golf course are the perfect backdrop for a wonderful time with family. Wait staff is always close by without being interruptive and the chef knows how to layout a meal. I had the smoked bacon cheese burger,... More

The view of the ocean from the porch is fabulous, especially when birds are migrating and/or shrimp trawlers are working. The food is pretty good and would recommend for lunch, but if you are looking for fine dining for dinner, I think there are better places. It is perfect for happy hour to watch the golfers finishing golf on the... More
