Kiawah Island - Food Options? Eating on Kiawah Island or nearby off-island locales offers many options from inexpensive places, in condo cooking, and expensive restaurants - we've done all over the decades but for our 3 nights decided to splurge (see options below w/ pics). First night @ Jasmine Porch in the Sanctuary - shared a dozen oysters from New England (excellent!); Susan had the scallops & I the 'fresh catch' (halibut). Second night, we took a shuttle to the Ocean Course, far east end of the island and site of a number of major golf tournaments (see aerial map w/ my additions) - probably our favorite place - sat near the window looking out at the finishing 18th hole (views below); ate at the Atlantic Room - again we started w/ oysters and both of us had the seafood stew (described on the menu as: roasted Winter Squash and Shellfish Broth, Local Fish, Shrimp, Mussels, Clams, Crab, Crawfish, Boudin, Sage Toast). Last night we returned to The Sanctuary to dine at The Ocean Room - started w/ local oysters (again delicious) - Susan decided to go w/ a filet mignon which she enjoyed - I had the braised octopus dish and loved (rarely a choice around our parts - described as: Scallop Mousse Agnolotti, Butternut Squash Puree, Squid Ink Sauce, Aged Feta, Frill Mustard) - for dessert we shared the Sous Bois (Bourbon Cream Puffs, Pistachio “Moss” Cake, Hazelnut-Milk Chocolate Cream, Apricot Gelee, Peach, Crystalized Hazelnut), which was cute, unique and delicious, along w/ some great French press decaf coffee. NOW - one or a family can certainly eat much cheaper as desired - one off-island choice is Freshfields Village, a shopper's delight - restaurants, shops, and market w/ plenty of pre-made goodies, including sushi, and a LOT of seafood and meats to cook in, if desired. Also off-island is the Bohicket Marina & Market w/ a number of restaurants and shops. Dave .
