After golf lunch - twice

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... read more

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.

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.

Wonderful meal although a little pricey, but very good food and beautiful scenery. Service was very good as well... only thing missing was a little smile or some sign of joy.

intimate and relaxing casual place to grab a bite. 6 tv screens great for watching the games. Chicken wings were pricey but good and the bar tender Patrick was knowledgeable about beer and food.

First for all of you not familiar with Kiawah Island, it is a gated secured community. We had to pass through not one but 2 check points to get to Cherrywood BBQ. We had a paper from each one to put on the dashboard of our vehicle. That being said, we had decided ahead of time to order the pulled... More

When we finally found the restaurant or should I say the clubhouse at the golf course, we were reluctant but decided to try it. I am regretting that choice now that I am back at the hotel. My son ate one wing, they were bland at best. I had the ribs that everyone raved about. They were awful! Stopped at... More

We came to Cherrywood BBQ on last year's Kiawah Island trip and remember loving this place for lunch. We were slightly disappointed with this visit. Service was lacking and we had to wait quite a long time for a server to approach our table. The brisket was not as moist as last time and tasted slightly "old". The coleslaw was... More

Half rack will be plenty for those with even a hearty appetite. Get a whole rack if you dare! It was quiet being winter hours but totally enjoyed the ribs and a couple of cold ones. Cornbread was ok as was the slaw. Ribs were the standout, mopped with sauce and other sauces available for changing it up.

Just like everything at Kiawah Golf resort, this place is overpriced. $25 for a cheeseburger! I don't mind spending for a nice meal, but the food should justify the prices. There is really no ambiance to speak of, though they do have outdoor dining which probably would be nice but it was dark when we arrived. My BBQ chicken was... More
