We were very impressed with the Mac and cheese. My husband got the combo plate so he could have both.

If it's a BBQ place its best to try BBQ. Service was great, and food was as expected. We sat outside enjoying a warm December day, before the rain arrived. Less expensive than eating at the resort hotel.

Extended family met in Kiawah Island for the Thanksgiving holiday. Cherrywood was recommended by two locals. Menu prices fit the resort area economy. Generous food portions and good taste. The collard greens were excellent! The pulled pork is served with a small amount of mustard based bbq sauce, but you get a variety of sauces brought to the table that... More

Used T&A to find an alternate to the Ryder Cup Bar at the Ocean course clubhouse which was closed for a private party. The Osprey Point clubhouse bar has inside and outside seating. We were friends for dinner. We tried Brunswick stew made with pork for an appetizer and for a meal. The ribs were good. The triple grind burger... More

On a Hurricane Joaquin rain soaked night we made a stop to hide out from the weather. We ventured over and encountered a group filming a segment for the Golf Channels Morning Drive show also there to enjoy the beers and BBQ. The pulled pork, chicken, fries, Cole slaw and Espresso Porter beers are not to be missed. The combo... More

The food here was just okay. We had a family-style meal for 4 with brisket, ribs, pulled pork and chicken. Reasonably priced at $79 but it was not tasty. Everything a BBQ joint should be known for and none of the items were tasty. I was disappointed. The place is gorgeous at Osprey golf course and the service was fantastic.... More

Ribs were excellent. Brisket was average. Nice views of the course and alligators surrounding the ponds. Plus Michael Strahan and family walked in for dinner. Ambiance is a little off for a BBQ joint, but we enjoyed.
