Just a beautiful location, gorgeous views, good food, and a very nice waitstaff! Yes it might seem pricey but you have to remember where you are! We thoroughly enjoyed and we're so glad we took half a day from Charleston to visit.

I had dinner here with my wife while staying in Kiawah Island back in June 2016. This review is late, but I wanted to say how much we enjoyed coming here. We sat outside on a beautiful night and had dinner while watching the sun go down. You have a perfect view of the ocean and Kiawah Island's ocean golf... More

We had lunch at the bar after playing the Ocean Course. The Ocean Course was spectacular but the Ryder Cup Bar was not. We both had a draft beer and chicken salad wraps with fries. The wraps were a little small for the price but tasted OK as were the fries. It is one of those places where you are... More

I live on the Island and rarely eat there as most of the food is overpriced and not that good. But I always bike my guests out to the Ryder Club. The food is good, prices fairly reasonable for a resort, the service is good, and the views unmatched. Always have the crispy shrimp appetizer and everything else is good... More

I love going to the Ryder Cup for their shrimp appetizer and their great view. But other than that, their entrees aren't worth the price. Very average food for fairly outrageous prices. I would recommend grabbing a drink and an appetizer right at sunset, then grab dinner elsewhere.

Ate a fantastic lunch - the blue crab wedge salad was one of the best I've had in a while! We also enjoyed great burgers and the fried chicken salad. The view can't be beat. Be sure to arrive early to get a table. It's a tad pricey but nothing out of the ordinary for a resort.

We eat here regularly, and enjoy the ambiance and the scenery. Overlooking the 18th green of the Ocean Course as well as the ocean, it is hard to beat this location for pretty sunset views. Love the "Skinny" cocktail (invented by one of their bartenders) and the fish tacos. Can get busy, so good to go early if you want... More

We went here for lunch - we both ordered the She Crab Soup, delicious. I had the blackened Mahi Mahi Sandwich with a side salad of fresh greens and a blueberry vinegar dressing. Salad was very good, sandwich was rather dry. My husband had a shrimp sandwich & onion rings. Both were just "OK." The Down side was that our... More

Ate dinner at the Ryder Cup Bar after playing a round of golf at the Ocean Course. You have a great view on the green of the 18th and the beach and ocean. The service is very attentive and friendly. The menu is good and the food was tasty. All comes with a high price tag.

If you are a golfer and sit outside here on the 18th hole you will be in awe of the beauty. Can't beat the view and at sunset it was magical. Drinks are expensive, but everything here is. All part of the wonderful experience. Would come back in a heartbeat.
