We went for breakfast and order biscuits & gravy, southwest scramble and peach & granola pancakes. Each plate came with a side! Only complaint was there were just four slices of a peach , pictures on their website look very different!Everything was delicious. Great service!

we had dinner here. The service was very good and our waiter attentive and pleasant. The chef knows how to do real low country dishes and the portions are adequate. Being on Kiawah, be prepared for sticker shock

I have been here a few times over the years and I personally have never had a bad meal or a warm beer. This specific time I had the crab cakes and they were wonderful and my beer was perfect.

Hubby and I took the kids here for breakfast. I had the southern scramble, sans black beans. It was delicious!!! Loved, loved the flavor and that it was just spicy enough to leave a little burn down my throat. Lovely. We also had the sausage, biscuits, and gravy with a side of sausage. That was pretty good also. Pancakes were... More

We had a wonderful blackened grouper sandwich today at the Southern Kitchen. It was presented beautifully! Brianna was our server and she was outstanding. So attentive to our needs. We have at least one meal there every year and have never been disappointed.

So, so at best. For Kiawah Island to be rated as the best resort in the U. S. This place falls way short. I understand not all of their restaurants are 5 star. That being said I've been to dinners that are better quality and less expensive! The only real thing it has going for it is convince!

The food is great, I honestly believe you can not get any bad food in the South!! I believe this place is only open for breakfast and lunch. Limited menu but there should be something on it for everyone! If you are on Kiawah and looking for a relatively cheap eat, Southern Kitchen is a good choice!

Have been going to Kiawah for about 30 years with the extended family. After a short hiatus, we went to the Southern Kitchen at the Straw Market near West Beach for the first time this summer. Wow. Wow. Wow. Had lunch then in the middle of the week and then just had to find time to get back. Kids and... More

Located on Kiawah Island, the best place for breakfast any time of the day is Southern Kitchen. The chicken and waffles are super, as well as eggs Benedict or Praline French toast. The service was outstanding, very polite people!

My husband had 2 eggs scrambled, bacon, hash browns and toast. The food was good - better than average. The service was attentive and friendly. My bloody mary was spicy, came with a slice... More
