Good BBQ and great sides

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.

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.

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.

There were 6 in our party, we were seated promptly and drink orders taken promptly, Service was excellent. My steak was very good as were the ribs, salmon, brisket and chicken fried pork. Pricey but worth it.

Southern Style BBQ like you Mama makes it and makes you Daddy cry. It is finger licking good and don't try to take some back to your room because the other guest on the shuttle will rip open you sack and gobble down your leftovers.

Lovely views, good service and great food. Expect to pay $50 for two excluding drinks. Nice after a long day at a meeting, golfing or off site shopping. Watch out for alligators!! We saw a 12 footer.

We liked the scenery - alligators on the pond over the balcony, ospreys on their nests visible from the balcony. Nice views across the golf course. It was one of the only places in Kiawah we found Gluten free beer - and we drank plenty of it too! The food was good. We had ribs and pulled pork. The portions... More

Popped in for lunch after golf and wanted a simple meal. My BBQ Nachos were a massive disappointment. The rest of the food was just plain ordinary which, for a resort and given the choice locally, was a surprise. There are a lot of better choices on the Island or in Bohicket Marina e.g. Fishers or Reds.
