Great View and Good food

Cant beat the view and the food was some of the better food we had while on vacation. I would make this one of your stops.

July 2015. This review is not about the long wait and will not discuss the food or the scenery. Basic service is sorely lacking. I am not talking about expectations of suburb service. At a restaurant in this price bracket ($35 for Snapper), one expects at least the basic service provided at a chain restaurant. here is an overview: (1)... More

I really wanted to try the Ryder Cup Bar and Grill. This seemed a great alternative to The Atlantic Room. I had phoned earlier for a reservation at the Atlantic Room and was told it was closed tonight "for maintenance". There was no mention that the Bar and Grill was also closed. We were not the only people with this... More

While visiting Kiawah, we were repeatedly told to go to the Ryder Cup Bar & Grill for sunset, drinks, and dinner. The views of the ocean and the sunset were great, and the view over the 18th green was equally awesome. You can sit inside or out, and if it is not too hot, then I highly recommend the outside...

We only visited the Ryder Cup bar for cocktails, so this review won't cover food. The bartenders were so nice, as we were able to get two seats at the bar. Great cocktails and ice cold prosecco. We then wandered outside, sat in the rockers and just enjoyed the view and ocean breeze. Would definitely return for dinner and would... More

I can promise you this is one of, if not THE best view in the US. It's mesmerizing, and so tranquil. The food is actually better than it would need to be since the view is so wonderful. We had the crispy shrimp, decikle, and fish of the day which I believe was wreck fish. All were very good. You... More

We had a one hour wait for dinner, which we had anticipated. The bartenders were attentive. The view is gorgeous. The food is average, had crab cake sandwich and average bistro potatoes. The waiter was not that attentive. We could have done so much better but got pulled in by the number one raising, definitely over rated. Skip dinner and... More

Amazing views at sunset. Easily a highlight of our stay. Grabs drink from the bar and sit outside for the views before having dinner. We ate inside but there is outside seating as well. We would definitely visit here again.

We sat outside and enjoyed the great weather while sampling crispy shrimp (awesome!) and many of the other menu options. The service was great and we had the opportunity to linger in a spectacular setting. Would highly recommend for visitors to Kiawah Island.

We always love this place. First you cannot beat the view. The service is always impeccable. For kiawah the prices are reasonable. This time we had the fried green tomato appetizer, the duck confit sandwich and the burger (we substituted pimento cheese and added a fried green tomato). The sandwich and burger could compete anywhere as a top choice. Depending... More
