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 Uninspired, slow, unfriendly, and outdated are appropriate descriptors of this time warp food service.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!

We arrived after most places were closed for our first night. We needed milk so this was a perfect stop for us since they have most grocery items. We asked for food recommendations. The fried chicken was good but mostly fried skin with very little meat. The ribs were good too. They had lots of sauce which I'm not a... More

We just missed the Cafe at Nigh Heron and was really hungry on our last night at Kiawah this year. Saw that this place was open a little later, so decided to give it a try. Glad we did, lots of choices so everyone got what they wanted, Jr wanted Pizza, Mom wanted Fried Chicken and I got BBQ which... More

The Market deli at East Beach Town Center is probably the least expensive place to grab a quick bite. Nice breakfast menu and plenty of pizzas and sandwiches. Order with the cashier and a short wait for your food. Plastic utensils. On three different occasions we had a nice hot breakfast, very good reuben sandwiches and a takeout pizza. Modestly... More

We loved Kiawah Island, however we found out early on not to do too much business at this market. We found the prices to be higher than expected. But most importantly, the staff at the Market was not friendly. Almost as if it was an annoyance that you were there (And we met at least 6 through out our stay... More
