Wife and I went for dinner. Restaurant is in the club house at Osprey Point golf course. If you are visiting the island, don't miss this one. We dined outside on the patio overlooking the alligator pond. Server was (Icylin). She was fantastic. Very good knowledge of the menu as well as the beer menu. We shared the shrimp cakes... More

This restaurant is a "must" for us on every visit to Kiawah Island, SC. They have a fantastic bar-b- que lunch which they're known for; and their big, fat, juicy onion rings are the best I've ever had (and I've had a lot everywhere). The outdoor terrace is the best place to eat, overlooking a great vista and golf course... More

I was not expecting much when i saw a BBQ place on Kiawah Island, but i was happily surprised once i arrived. The beer selection covered a very nice range but ran slightly higher in price than average. The BBQ nachos were a hit at our table. We had those finished in a matter of moments. The Jalepenos for the... More

Very good BBQ, especially the ribs! Located at the Osprey Point Clubhouse on Kiawah Island, not where you would expect to find such great BBQ. Also a great beer selection, and beautiful setting, but typically high Kiawah prices and lackluster service.

We ate at Cherrywood because Rosebank Farms is gone and Chez Fish had an hour and a half wait. We were seated promptly in the spacious dining room. We had chicken wings to start which arrived hot and tasty, but $15 for wings? I had the BBQ combo for $25. It. Came with ribs and brisket. Ribs were good, brisket... More

The menu here is more diverse than just bbq, which was nice for the diverse palates of our group. The typical bbq dishes (pulled pork, brisket, etc) are good, but are just good, not great or memorable. Most restaurants on the island are pricey, which is to be expected, but I felt like the smallish portions of some of teh... More

The staff was very nice and accommodating. We enjoyed sampling flights of beer, but the food was disappointing (no one in our party of 9 had a meal worth bragging about) yet our bill was very expensive.

We went here for a late lunch and chose to eat out on the veranda overlooking the golf course. There was a nice breeze and there are also fans to circulate the air. There is a small pond below the veranda and we got to see an alligator sunning itself on the shore during our lunch. My husband had a... More

The food here is delicious! It's straight-up BBQ without much variation, so if you need variety for all members of your party it might not be the place to go. That said, the smoked chicken is fantastic and the view is great if you sit on the porch. Be sure to walk the path out back to do some gator-spotting!

Nice atmosphere, staff was friendly. BBQ and other food was good, but I would definitely have expected something more exceptional for the price. My husband had ribs that were well cooked, but most of the flavor came from the bottled sauces provided on the table.
