“Ocean views with great food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 17, 2013

We have dined at the Atlantic Room on a prior trip to Kiawah and enjoyed a lovely meal with fantastic service. On this trip we decided to try out the Ryder Cup Bar and were pleasantly surprised by a fantastic meal with better views and a cheaper bill at the end. We sat outside on the veranda and enjoyed appetizers and sandwiches. The Warm Carolina Crab Dip was a favorite along with the best She Crab Soup on this week long vacation. The Spicy Shrimp were also a delight. The sandwiches ranged from $13-17 and the cocktail list is inventive. We will be back soon.

“Awesome meal overlooking a championship golf course and the ocean”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 14, 2013

The evening we spent at the Ryder Cup Bar at the Ocean Course Clubhouse on the patio was a PERFECT evening. We were seated on the patio, overlooking the golf course and the ocean, temperatures in the low 80's with a beautiful breeze and then a exceptional sunset. The drinks were perfect and the staff exceptionally attentative. The best was yet to come when we each ordered their 3 course meal which had several choices for each course and it doesn't get any better than that. We all hated for the evening to end and there was no move to hurry us out. I can't wait until our next visit to Kiawah and for sure we'll return to the Ryder Cup Bar.

This is a great, great bar.
Eat here and save big money.

“good food, special service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2013

Staff couldn't do enough to please us. When our tuna melt came out with onions in it, they promptly took it away and made us something different (at no extra charge). Pretty dining area along the ocean, great views.

“Beautiful view, food not very good”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2013

Husband and I went last week. The views are unmatched and definitely worth a visit solely for this reason. My husband had a burger and said it was ok, but I had a tuna melt, which was not edible. As this is a public course, we were both surprised at the lack of decorum demonstrated by the guests. A woman next to me pulled out her hair brush and proceeded to brush her hair and many people were dressed poorly (think gym clothes). This is definitely not the norm for any club I have ever visited. Stick to cocktails if you do go.
