Food is not very good. Had pimento grilled cheese and crab cake. I did not know it was possible to burn a crab cake, but apparently it is!

I can see why this is #1 just for the location and views but our experience here wasn't great...I know this is not the fault of the restaurant but the clientele eating here the day we went were awful. I am not a snob, but I do expect reasonable manners from those around me. For such an expensive and exclusive... More

We visited in September of 2016. Great fall off the bone ribs and delicious onion rings. Slow service.

The security guard at the gate wouldn't let me in to get to the club. I was going to meet my boss to discuss bringing our conference to Kiawah, but this guy wouldn't let us pass through the gate.( P.s. I've dined here a bunch of times in the past! ) Therefore I had a terrible experience without stepping foot... More

I have been here a number of times. It is great in nice weather. You are on #18 of the Ocean Course with a 180-degree ocean view. The architecture is great. It is kind of a two story-octagon room with a vaulted ceiling and walls of windows for the view. Service is always very pleasant and attentive. Food is average... More

December is a great time to go since the bar was mainly empty. The room was very warm and the specialty drinks and bartender were great company.

Just a beautiful location, gorgeous views, good food, and a very nice waitstaff! Yes it might seem pricey but you have to remember where you are! We thoroughly enjoyed and we're so glad we took half a day from Charleston to visit.

I had dinner here with my wife while staying in Kiawah Island back in June 2016. This review is late, but I wanted to say how much we enjoyed coming here. We sat outside on a beautiful night and had dinner while watching the sun go down. You have a perfect view of the ocean and Kiawah Island's ocean golf... More

We had lunch at the bar after playing the Ocean Course. The Ocean Course was spectacular but the Ryder Cup Bar was not. We both had a draft beer and chicken salad wraps with fries. The wraps were a little small for the price but tasted OK as were the fries. It is one of those places where you are... More

I live on the Island and rarely eat there as most of the food is overpriced and not that good. But I always bike my guests out to the Ryder Club. The food is good, prices fairly reasonable for a resort, the service is good, and the views unmatched. Always have the crispy shrimp appetizer and everything else is good... More
