Six of us enjoyed a late lunch here today. From the top: service was outstanding, view was excellent, food was good. We all enjoyed our meals which consisted of sandwiches, salads and wraps. My crab cake was not lump crab but was still good. The chef should consider broiling rather than frying. The cheddar fries are dangerously good. Both the... More

This bar is great for an informal lunch and for drinks before dinner in the Atlantic Room. Bartenders are skilled and one drink to keep in mind is the "Skinny"--one of their specialties.

Everything about this experience was wonderful! The transportation from the Sanctuary to the Ryder Cup Bar, the service, the food and the VIEW - extraordinary! The rocking chairs on the porch and the chairs on the lawn offered the most stunning setting from cocktails and dinner. Will definitely return and soon!

Clubhouse is very classic, beautiful and has wonderful food. We sat outside on the porch and enjoyed the breeze from the ocean. The food was very good, especially the fried green tomatoes. Highly recommend for a casual evening with a gorgeous view.

As I said in my other review, this is a bucket list compliment!!! The service and food are outstanding. The views breathtaking, and seeing an area we had never been worthwhile. I will be bringing my family back as this is a family friendly locale.

Totally worth the 15 min ride from the Sanctuary. Special spot on earth with the views. Wish we did not go on the night of the special buffet (Friday). We would have preferred another night. Make the trip there!

Stunningly beautiful view of Atlantic Ocean and the 18th green of the Ocean Course at Kiawah Island. Shrimp and grits and wine selection were exceptional.
