On our last night at the resort we decided to grab something and take it back to the villa. We decided on the Market and were very pleased. First off they have a selection of grocery items should you need something quick without having to drive somewhere off the island. They deli had a nice variety of foods to choose... More

As residents of Kiawah we regularly visit for breakfast and sometimes the occasional pizza. Breakfast selection is very good and delivered to your table in speedy fashion. Staff is very pleasant and manager can be seen working to make guests feel comfortable. A casual place that provides an alternative to the Sanctuary restaurants especially if one has children.

We have always enjoyed getting dinner takeout from here on our trips to Kiawah over the years. Many choices and you can have a "real meal" while kids can get pizza or more casual fare. Salmon and chicken are very good as well ribs and Mac n cheese.

This is a walk-up deli where you order food at the cash register, not the deli counter. Make sure you have your drinks when you're ready to order or you stand in line twice. Prices are steep and portions small

Ordering your food is an odd, clunky, dysfunctional system. The quality of the menu items is on par with an institutional company cafeteria, other than they use higher end deli meats/cheeses. Uninspired, slow, unfriendly, and outdated are appropriate descriptors of this time warp food service. It's unbefitting of Kiawah. Can't they contract this out to a restaurant operator to serve...

I bought breakfast the day prior. We had some leftover bread from lunch that I was going to use for toast the next day. I went into their area where they have free condiments and utensils and took a handful of ketchup packets. We are staying in a villa and I didn't wish to buy a whole bottle for two... More

A definite must-go. Great place for breakfast. Half as expensive and twice as much food as the Sanctuary restaurants. Great for kids. Excellent menu. Delicious pizza at dinner, and very reasonably priced.

We ate lunch here with another couple. Casual - order at the counter and they bring your food to you. The food was acceptable and there is a good variety. This restaurant is inside a general store-type place. A good place for a casual quick meal.

We stopped here a couple times in the 6 days we were on property. We got a meal to take back to the villa, BBQ chicken. It was really good, and came with nice veggies. We picked up snacks and soda, as well. Nothing special, but good in a pinch!
