Good view. Solid food

Ribs were excellent. Brisket was average. Nice views of the course and alligators surrounding the ponds. Plus Michael Strahan and family walked in for dinner. Ambiance is a little off for a BBQ joint, but we enjoyed.

The food here was just okay. We had a family-style meal for 4 with brisket, ribs, pulled pork and chicken. Reasonably priced at $79 but it was not tasty. Everything a BBQ joint should be known for and none of the items were tasty. I was disappointed. The place is gorgeous at Osprey golf course and the service was fantastic.... More

Living in the south I get to experience great BBQ whether it is in NC or SC. Unfortunately it was not here in Kiawah at Cherrywood. The setting is nice and picturesque. The BBQ nachos were a good start. But the fancy BBQ was too salty and just plain over prepared. It was not a bad meal but certainly I... More

My husband and I took our two teenage kids here for dinner and are so glad we did! This restaurant is located at the Osprey Golf Course. We walked in with no reservations and we were seated immediately. Beautiful inside seating. Arthur was our server. He was top notch and attentive the entire time. We ordered the Family Style Dinner... More

A somewhat friendly wait staff tried to make the food look good, but they couldn't help out that much. Mediocre food at high prices. Decent tap selection at $9+ a pint.

Ate here recently with my husband while all the teens had other plans. Nice to have dinner as a couple on vacation. I got the BBQ nachos and my husband had the ribs. Unfortunately, our order took forever and both dishes were overlooked. Our waiter kept apologizing as the food was taking so long, the kitchen just seemed really backed... More

Love the casual feel but good food, wine and lots of gators to be seen by the pond. Went on a date night and went back again with our kids.

The BBQ is usually just fine, and the salmon I had excellent. Mac and cheese a real winner and the onion rings huge. The portions are large and lots of sauces on each table for the brisket and ribs. Ask for the really hot sauce.

Located at Osprey Point Golf Club. Stopped in the bar area after our round and decided to try the BBQ nachos. WOW! They were absolutely fantastic. Try them with a sprinkle of their vinegar sauce. Many other menu items that looked awesome as well. Good selection of local beers. Worth a stop.
