We had lunch at the Ryder Cup Bar. What an amazing view of the golf course & Atlantic Ocean. There is indoor & outdoor seating. The built in bar is very cool. Lunch was delicious we had fried green tomatoes as an appetizer. I had the blackened mahi maui sandwich. I would definitely return to the Ryder Cup Bar on... More

This was our third visit to The Ryder Cup Bar (over a few years), stopped by for lunch and drinks. We were seated at the bar because there were no open tables. We decided to order a couple of appetizers and drinks. While you cannot beat the gorgeous view, we were less than impressed with the food. We had the... More

We have had lunch and enjoyed the raw bar at the Ryder Cup Bar. Lunch was great, the sweet fried shrimp were good and we split the fish and chips sitting overlooking the 18 th green of the Ocean Course. Tonight had the raw bar in the same spot. Bloody Mary shooters, cerviche, low country shrimp and a lobster slide... More

This is a favorite spot while vacationing in the area. The view of the ocean beyond the 18th hole of the Ocean Course is pretty fantastic on it's own, but the food here is GREAT and service is excellent. We usually come for a late lunch and lounge on the porch with a glass of wine - a perfect afternoon.

Great lunch food! Mussels were fabulous, the crab dip is superb and the wings, of all things, are fabulous too! But the best part is being able to sit outside and take in the beauty! The staff were all really friendly as well!

Granted, I only tried the burger but is was exceptional. Not for the price sensitive as the burger/fries runs about $18. Worth going near sunset for the view but get there early as it gets pretty busy.

Great service complements the fare very well. The fare, though yards from the Atlantic, is an array of meats, vegetables, fishes and fowl. The setting is beautiful inside and spectacular through the large windows toward the ocean or the golf course. Although prices are premium, the food is as well. And, again, service is great throughout dining, from the welcome... More

My husband and I visit Kiawah every summer, and we are slowly trying to hit every restaurant on and near the island. We visited the Ryder Cup one day for lunch a couple of years ago on our way to the beach beyond the clubhouse (it's very peaceful that far out on the island), and we were warmly greeted despite...

The Ryder Cup Bar is a spacious but cozy place to have a cocktail and/or sandwich while watching the golfers finish one of the great US courses. The gorgeous club house was opened in 2007 but feels like a classic old-time golf club retreat. Don't let that intimidate you: the folks are welcoming and friendly. Get a seat at the... More
