We ordered food for takeout (a few platter combos - ribs and chicken) along with some sides and an appetizer which we didn't receive. It was pricey and the ribs were disappointing. The sides were small, 2 items were left off our order and the bill was close to $100. In addition, the google address was incorrect and therefore it... More

This restaurant that specializes in BBQ food is just average when it comes to that type of food. They try real hard to be different but they just miss the mark. When our group of 8 arrived with reservations, they sat us at a table that was at a window and the sun was so strong that we asked to... More

Went here for dinner on one of our nights on Kiawah. We made a reservation but probably didn't need one. We were seated in a standard room within the clubhouse, which made us feel like weren't in a restaurant. We ordered a bunch of different entrees and they arrived pretty quickly leaving us to believe it was just sitting in... More

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.
