I have eaten here several times and have enjoyed it every time. Nice atmosphere and many beer choices. Great cornbread. I recommend the pork shoulder or brisket. Good place for families.

This restaurant was a mix of good and bad. We had the brisket and ribs, and both selections were pretty fatty. Probably about 20% of the brisket meal was fat. The view was gorgeous and service was attentive. Prices are a bit high but we knew that beforehand and expected based on the location. I would not choose to return... More

We had a very nice lunch here. We asked to be seated on the terrace overlooking the 18th green and the driving range and the view was great. There Bar-B-Que sandwich was quite good and their cle slaw was outstanding. I had the seafood roll and found it disappointing. It had so much seasoning and mayo that one could not... More

We got there right when there were closing, they still sat and served us! Jason was the bartender and was not annoyed that we were there at closing! The hamburger was amazing!!! Get the beans and Mac and cheese for sides , you won't be disappointed! I would pass on the Reeses pie, just ok.

We visited Cherrywood 3 times during our one week stay in Kiawah. My husband and I loved the casual elegant atmosphere. With teenage boys it was just right - great selection of ales, tv's to watch the Olympics and an award winning Mac and cheese that's worth the trip! Jason at the bar was so friendly too. Love this place.

Good selection of food even for my picky eaters! Beautiful view of the golf course and gators! A little pricey for families. Service was excellent!

This is advertised as "authentic barbecue" but is really a resort restaurant that seems clueless. The portions were small, the prices outrageous and the barbecues mediocre at best

Ok for drinks and appetizers. Otherwise the beautiful view and friendly staff could not make up for a horrible dinner. Over priced local catch was rubbery and inedible and ribs were like shoe leather. Mistake was made with my husband's dinner and server never apologized or tried to remedy. Server brought out sauces for meat at end of meal which... More

This restaurant has great scenery since the Osprey Golf Course is right out back! You can wait on the porch and watch the wildlife. You will see any kinds of birds and alligators. Now on to the food! Both times I have been there the food was great. I got the sample platter where you get a little serving of... More

The food we had was good, and the variety was good. The view was good from the golf course clubhouse and the ponds had a few alligators that made it worth going. Better food than expected for a golf clubhouse restaurant.

Thank 55rdss
