The Ocean Room, located on the second floor of The Sanctuary at Kiawah Island Golf Resort, has an adjacent lounge area where you can sit and wait for a table or grab a post-dinner nightcap. Dubbed the Sushi Lounge, this area also boasts views of the ocean and the décor mimics the dark, sophisticated feel of the main dining room. Here, you can find a menu with lighter bites and signature cocktails including a variety of sakes. If you’re up for a snack before dinner at the Forbes Travel Guide Four-Star restaurant, order from the sushi menu — we like the “low country” maki roll made with fresh spicy crab, fried green tomato and country ham.
While waiting for a table at The Ocean Room at The Sanctuary at Kiawah Island, we encourage our guests to visit our Sushi Lounge. East meets South as traditional sushi dishes are served along with "sushi southern style," featuring locally and regionally sourced heirloom grains, produce and seafood. In addition to sushi, our menu includes a variety of contemporary Asian small plates and cocktails including both hot and cold sake offerings. The lounge is open and available Tuesday through Saturday from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m., no reservations required.
