Beautiful view! Good food and very creative cocktails. What a lovely place to walk to when staying at the Cloisters- on the property- across the street from the main building.

Seafood flare is obvious AND expected. Fish sandwich for my meal was blackened corvina. It was great! I choose fries as the side. They are large and have a seasoned layer to them -- loved! The calamari was OUTSTANDING! My friends ordered the deviled eggs with pimento cheese dip. The dip was great (to them) but the eggs were just... More

Terrific alternative dining sport for lunch and dinner whenever the mood of relaxation overpowers your need for fancy. Outside lunch is especially nice on warm winter days and when the midday light is just right bouncing off the ocean.

My husband and I stayed at The Cloisters....our first time to the Island. We arrived in the evening and were tired from a day of travel and sightseeing. So, we asked for a causal place to eat on the grounds. He ordered the fish of the day, blackened Corvina, with broccoli, and I ordered the cajun shrimp and grits, with... More

I had the hamburger and fries. It was just what I wanted and prepared to perfection. The hamburger had a beautiful sear on it that made it taste amazing. For dessert I had the Sea Island Sundae. The homemade ice cream was delicious and the topping was fun!

We had two meals during our stay on the property at southern tide: thanksgiving dinner and a regular night. Neither were inspiring. Thanks giving dinner was slightly below ok and the only thing on the $58 plate worthy of mention was the Brussel sprouts which were excellent. Going around the table: smoked turkey was very dry & lacked flavor, fried... More

Today my wife and I ate here for the first time, taking advantage of a special promotion that gave non-residents of Sea Island / The Cloister the opportunity to try its restaurants. This restaurant is located within the beach club complex and fronts onto either the ocean or poolside, both offering lovely views. It's a relaxed, more casual restaurant and... More

This was the only place we at at the Cloister that didn't wow me. It was a late lunch and the service was off and the food average. It's definitely casual with a nice, fun and open floorplan, and the beach view is fantastic. It could be great at another time, but not in my one experience.

This was very close to our condo and on the beach so ate here twice. It was a very nice family restaurant, you wouldn't want any thing fancier with kids. Can't remember any specific dishes I just hope the hurricane doesn't ruin it

The restaurant is set overlooking the sea. We dined here twice and both times had good simple seafood with good service.
