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.

The service was great. The view cant be any better. If you are on Kiawah and have a few minutes to relax in a great setting, this is a good one.

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!

We had the best impromptu lunch here in the middle of an island bike ride! The place is absolutely gorgeous and just happened to have amazing food as well. I recommend the jerk chicken BLT... it was AMAZING! And, everyone in our group loved the drinks! Definitely recommend! The beach area is spectacular... you must walk down the path to... More

About a 15 or 20 minute lovely ride from the gate - I wonder why Kiawah HAS a gate, anyone gets through, anytime - this restaurant is so beautifully located, that the average at best food is still worth it. To sit comfortably and gaze at the nearby Atlantic makes the quality of food far less important. If you are... More

The approach to Ocean Course is one of the most beautiful you'll experience, and that is certainly part of the allure. Of course the food is over priced, as this is marketed as luxury dining in the middle of prime real estate. I'm just not sure the food is on par. $13 for thinly sliced, marginally seasoned fried green tomatoes... More

on a beautiful fall day after a round of golf, we stayed to have some cocktails, eat a meal, and watch some football. Very busy and staff seemed a little overwhelmed. Food was good, drinks, better, but you really come here for the view which can't be beat
