“Ocean views, good food, what else do you need?”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 28, 2013 via mobile

Skip the overpriced Atlantic Room and eat here instead! Food was very good and sitting looking at the ocean is great. Family friendly too. Will return.

“Fantastic experience!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 27, 2013

Our waitress was super friendly and attentive. The food was tasty fresh and beautifully presented. The portions were on the small side, which was a nice change to the huge portions served at other places. Atmosphere was legendary! Will try to return again for a megaliths trip.

“Great Waitstaff Nice Presentation Relaxing Enjoyable Experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 6, 2013

Start with apps. Oysters on the half shell very fresh but the three sauces that come with it especially the mustard mango was awesome. Basic chicken wings done well. Crispy, juicy with just enough bite along with the blue cheese dressing. Fresh fish tacos, jerk chicken BLT were done right. Tacos fresh, BLT smokey and tasty. Onion rings very good. Fries the same Cole slaw fresh but more on the bland side for my taste. Kids burger and grilled cheese were gobbled up. Desserts of crème brulee, blood orange sorbet and citrus white chocolate mouse were again excellent. Portions were all good sized. Pricey but the best bar food around. Worth the drive.

“Beautiful View”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 1, 2013

We sat outside for dinner just when the sun was setting providing a stunning view of the ocean and the 18th hole. We had burgers and the fish tacos and they were very good. The cosmos were good too! Made just the way I like them, light pink.

“Location-you couldn't ask for more beautiful view”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 24, 2013

You don't have to be a golfer to enjoy this setting. Make sure you go close to sunset and take a sweater it can be cool and breezy if you sit outside which I would recommend. Yes the drinks are expensive but enjoy yourself. The food we ordered was good, service was good and we just relaxed and enjoyed ourselves. Getting to and leaving the the clubhouse can be a challenge. It is at the far end of the island, there is some road construction, and no street lights. If you are staying on the Kiawah Island, you need to get here even if all you do is have a drink. Take your camera.
