A friend and I wanted to experience the Ocean Course during a visit to Kiawah over Memorial Day weekend and ventured into the restaurant during a lengthy rain delay.

Hostess recommended seating at the bar and said she would bring us menus which never materialized. The 3 staff behind the bar were very busy pouring drinks and did not offer drinks or a menu for 3-4 minutes after we sat down, only doing so upon request (there were 2 other guests at the bar at the same time). After the long delay, we placed our order and were dining shortly thereafter on delicious mussels on a bed of rice.

We returned for drinks at the restaurant after our round and again waited for close to 5 minutes before we received service. The wait staff we flagged down was unfriendly and simply stated she would find our server - no offer to take drink orders first.

Given the reputation and prices at the restaurant, I expected a higher level of service than one would find at an IHOP.

This was a great place to have a drink and eat. We sat on the porch and overlooked the 18th green of the ocean course and the ocean. It is pricey, but that what you should expect on vacation at a resort like Kiawah. I highly recommend.

A must do when in the Kiawah area. Huge Atlantic Ocean views with outdoor seating. A first class operation. My family of five really enjoyed our visit here. Eugene our waiter and Pietr the manager were both exceptional. In fact, Pietr, being Italian, comped my son's desert because he was wearing an Italy tshirt! Really cool for my son and the kind of thing that will make us return whenever at Kiawah and also send others here. The food was surprisingly good too considering it is such a destination and view-type restaurant. Definitely try the fish tacos and the chocolate bread pudding was perhaps the best I have ever had! All told, this was a fantastic dining experience for my family:)
