Vegetarian and vegans should feel welcome at The Ocean Room, a Forbes Travel Guide Four-Star restaurant tucked inside The Sanctuary at Kiawah Island Golf Resort. While it may seem counterintuitive, the steakhouse has many vegetarian and even vegan guests (it’s the premiere restaurant on Kiawah Island and attracts diners with its food, ambience and ocean views). Every night, at least one item on the menu is vegetarian — usually a risotto or pasta dish made with fresh, local ingredients. Chef Jason Rheinwald often visits tables to speak with vegan guests to discuss various options he and his team can create — he discovers dietaries needs and then builds dishes around them.
