We spent the day on Kiawah riding bikes around the island and on the beach!! Stopped into the Ryder Cup restaurant for lunch and both had burgers. Expensive burgers but given the location, that could be expected! We were in exercise clothes based on our bike riding and felt a bit underdressed. Amazing view of the golf course and the... More

We had a light meal while watching the sunset over the Atlantic Ocean. It is a long drive to the Ocean Golf Course. Upon arrival the clubhouse displays a wonderful view of the ocean. Both the Ryders Cup Bar and the Ocean Course Dining is designed for nightly views of the sunset and ocean breezes. The menu is limited yet... More

The food and service are good, but the setting is incredible. We probably spent 3 hours in the Ryder Cup bar after our round.

Winters on Kiawah, for us, are highlighted by visits to the Ryder Cup Bar. Of course the sunsets are alone worth a visit. The excellent execution of their limited menu and the professional friendly service in this Club Bar make it 1# on the island. Go early to get a great table for natures light show, about 1 hour before... More

Tables line the periphery of this circular room and most provide a magnificent 180 degree view of the beach and ocean. The menu is not extensive, but provides a nice enough selection for casual lunch fare. We enjoyed the fried green tomatoes to start and each ordered a sandwich to follow. The portions are so generous that we could have... More

The food was great and the views of the Atlantic Ocean are amazing. My only complaint is that our waiter didn't mention all of the specials to us, not a big deal because the hamburger was really great. If you play the Ocean Course, do not leave without at least getting a drink here.

Met my husband for lunch after his round at the Ocean Course. We were given a perfectly gorgeous day at the end of January, so dining on the porch was amazing!!! I had the fish tacos. They were good, but the onion rings were every bit as good as all of the reviewers have said! I admit, I do not... More

Stopped in for snacks and a drink. Food was very good. Sliders and crab cake both were very good. recommend the bread pudding as well. Always high quality and even better when you are there for sunset.

I had lunch at the Ryder Cup Bar during my last visit to Kiawah. The views are exceptional and I highly recommend their burgers. I try to have lunch there every time I visit Kiawah. You cannot beat the views and the food and service is also very good.

While playing Dolphin Point, we were partnered with a local. He informed us that we needed to visit the Ryder Cup Bar for their shrimp and we were not disappointed. Service/food/prices were all a-one.
