“Limited Menu...Severely Overpriced...Nice Views”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2013

After a round at the Ocean Course me and my wife were looking forward to having a nice lunch at the Ryder Cup Bar. I guess you are paying for the views as the price per plate was unbelievably overpriced. I realize that you are paying for the facility but $7 for a beer and $15 for a grilled cheese was a little much. The food was OK...not great but sitting on the porch viewing the 18th hole with ocean views made up for it...I would eat elsewhere if done all over.

“Phenomenal Ocean views. Amazing unique cocktails! Delicious well crafted food with a southern touch! Get here!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2013 via mobile

Love this place. A huge wrap around covered porch with big padded wicker chairs and a view of the Rolling surf and the beautiful Ocean Course golf course. The drink menu is original and well done. I like the "On the Green" martini with a cucumber and dill infusion. My wife enjoys "The Skinny" with its pomegranate and vodka. The Warm Carolina Crab Dip is absolutely delicious... thick with the freshest and most flavorful crab around. You can't go wrong here. Indoor seating also available and a higher end indoor restaurant right next door. Enjoy!

“Ocean views, good food, what else do you need?”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 28, 2013 via mobile

Skip the overpriced Atlantic Room and eat here instead! Food was very good and sitting looking at the ocean is great. Family friendly too. Will return.

“Fantastic experience!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 27, 2013

Our waitress was super friendly and attentive. The food was tasty fresh and beautifully presented. The portions were on the small side, which was a nice change to the huge portions served at other places. Atmosphere was legendary! Will try to return again for a megaliths trip.

“Great Waitstaff Nice Presentation Relaxing Enjoyable Experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 6, 2013

Start with apps. Oysters on the half shell very fresh but the three sauces that come with it especially the mustard mango was awesome. Basic chicken wings done well. Crispy, juicy with just enough bite along with the blue cheese dressing. Fresh fish tacos, jerk chicken BLT were done right. Tacos fresh, BLT smokey and tasty. Onion rings very good. Fries the same Cole slaw fresh but more on the bland side for my taste. Kids burger and grilled cheese were gobbled up. Desserts of crème brulee, blood orange sorbet and citrus white chocolate mouse were again excellent. Portions were all good sized. Pricey but the best bar food around. Worth the drive.
