Great food, friendly staff, amazing view

A very casual place, despite being part of the Ocean Course and an excellent place to have a drink or lunch. Sitting outside on one of the wicker chairs overlooking the ocean with a cold beer is very hard to beat.

Usual fried fare nothing wrong but not exciting either, service fine and twenty minute shuttle service drive from hotel. Great views over sea unfortunately 18th hole gets in the way

Ocean views, the 18th green of a championship golf course, good food and service is what one will get with a visit to The Rider Cup Bar. Kiawah is a private island with restricted access however one can get a limited pass to visit the Ocean Course Clubhouse and it is well worth the effort required to clear security.

what a place to enjoy a post round drink or meal overlooking the 18th and ocean. phenomenal it is small so it fills up quickly but the drink selection is very good and though its a small menu everything is prepared very well.

My husband and I came here for lunch so we could watch the golfers. I had no idea that the view would be this great - this is right next to the 18th green, and right on the ocean. We sat on the veranda and enjoyed the view while we had a very nice lunch. I had the grilled pimento... More

After a round or just stopping by to have a drink, you'll love this bar. With incredible views of the Ocean Course and the Ocean, it's a great setting!

What amazing views and so relaxing. We stopped for drinks and lunch. The mussels were fantastic as were the rice balls, shrimp and cheeseburger dishes. The skinny drink was very tasty. Have lunch and then go walking on the beach for a long, relaxing walk. You will enjoy beautiful vistas.

Nice place to have a drink and relax following a round of golf on the Ocean Course. Bartenders and servers friendly. Unable to eat this particular day as there was a power outage but everyone did there best in a challenging situation. We got to say hello and catch up with one of our favorites, Rodney who now works in... More

Wonderful place to sit and chill after a terrific round on any of the courses on Kiawah Island! Cold beer. Friendly, competent waitstaff (thank you Detroy!) and a wonderful pimento grilled cheese sandwhich with green tomatoes and ham on jalapeno cornbread...yum!
