Description: The Forbes 4-star/AAA 4-Diamond Ocean Room at Kiawah Island Golf Resort specializes in an unparalleled steakhouse experience. Chef Nathan Thurston and team have sourced the finest meats obtainable from artisan and local cattle ranches.

The décor reflects a classic “steakhouse” ambiance including the elegant lounge furnished in mahogany and leather to enhance this incomparable oceanfront dining room.

“Fine night at dinner”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2013

The staff, from the greeter, to the server, to the ancillary staff was very friendly and knowledgeable about the menu. We had an excellent experience, approaching a pampered feeling.

“Not worth it”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2013

We were very disappointed in our dinner at the Ocean Room. We were looking forward to a special evening out, celebrating our 20th anniversary. It was anything but special. We felt like we were ignored. The food was just mediocre, the service was poor, the price was very expensive and it was by far the worst meal we had on our weeks stay at The Sanctuary.

“Not exciting.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2013

Waited about 10 minutes before waiter appeared. Had to request bread for the table. Husbands steak was bland and overlooked. Veggies a bit soggy. Kitchen was slow as well. The room is beautiful and overlooks the beach. Wine choices were varied and numerous.
