Since The Sanctuary at Kiawah Island is on an isolated barrier island, the closest restaurants are the four eateries within the Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star hotel. The Ocean Room will hit the spot if you crave a hearty steak dinner. With sweeping ocean views and a chef's tasting menu that features fresh, local ingredients, your meal at this Four-Star steakhouse will be one to remember. If you prefer fish to beef, The Ocean Room also has a bar area that's the only place on the breathtaking island to serve sushi.
Jasmine Porch is a popular restaurant whose dining room resembles a large, elegant sunroom. Whether you dine here for breakfast, lunch or dinner, there's an extensive menu featuring local produce and seafood.
Next door is the tiny café Beaches and Cream. It's the place to grab a quick sandwich, cup of coffee or other house-made goodies. Take it to go or snag one of the nearby bistro tables.
The casual Loggerhead Bar & Grill serves delicious pub fare like burgers, frozen drinks, salads and wraps. The best part is you don't even have to get up from your oh-so-comfortable chaise lounge by the pool or on the beach: The wait staff will bring your food right to you.
If you want to leave the luxury Kiawah Island hotel grounds to explore other dining options, there are restaurants near the five golf courses, at the nearby West Beach Village and at Heron Park.
The Ocean Room at The Sanctuary at Kiawah Island is one of only two Four-Star steakhouses in the U.S. The resort is also home to 11 restaurants, including Jasmine Porch (Low Country cuisine), Tomasso (Italian), Loggerhead Grill and Night Heron Grill (poolside grills), Southern Kitchen (traditional Southern comfort food), the Atlantic Room (oceanfront seafood dining), Ryder Cup Bar (bar food), Cherrywood BBQ and Ale House (barbecue).
