“For the most part, and excellent dining experince.....”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 20, 2013

Appetizer and main entire were outstanding, as was the service and hospitality! Unfortunately we ordered the churros for dessert and they served two orders of them even though they were way overcooked (burnt). More troubling was the fact that it appeared that in an attempt to hide the fact that they were burnt, someone had turned the more severely burnt sides down on the serving plate! Shame on the kitchen for sending something like that out to a guest!

One other observation, this restaurant is very noisy, making it difficult to carry on a conversation with our gusts, other than those seated immediately to your right, left or directly across from you. Another situation where I suggest they get someone in to add some sound deadening materials to enhance the dining experience at a rather upscale restaurant.

“So good - we went back again!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 19, 2013

This is a very good place to enjoy a classy evening dinner. We both had the sea bass both times we ate there - and it was wonderful. Our waiter was very friendly and the service was excellent. Out of all of the restaurants we ate at (which were almost all of them), this was the best one associated with Kiawah Resort. I highly recommend this to anyone going to the island!

I love the view from this room.
Food is excellent but the view is heaven on earth.

“I would highly recommend this restaurant!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 2013 via mobile

My family had dinner at the Atlantic Room at Kiawah Island's Ocean Course Clubhouse. We had the bone-in ribeye, striped Bass and a grouper special also ordered the Crispy Shrimp as an appetizer. The Crispy Shrimp was good but was not my favorite although both of the guys really liked it . I had the Grouper special and it was just delicious. The persons having the other entrees really enjoyed theirs as well . The bread was hot and delicious. We also ordered 2 desserts, the first was an Olive Oil cake with a sauce and berries. I really didn't like it. The berries were good. The other we're Churros with three sauces, a milky sauce, a caramel sauce and a chocolate sauce . The Churros were a little doughy and the sauces were too thin. They brought us an order of their White Chocolate Bread Pudding after learning that we weren't impressed with the other 2 desserts. It was excellent but I was too full to enjoy it. Our waiter was named Jack and he was absolutely wonderful. He made us all feel so comfortable and he just did a great job. We would absolutely recommend this wonderful dining experience.
