Our waiter was very cordial and had a great personality. The dining area was very pleasant and our four different entrees were very good. Our only disappointment was the fact that they did not serve desserts.

They had a special 1 1/2 lb Maine Lobster with corn on the cob, Cole slaw and baked potato! Reasonable and delicious! You can't fool New Englanders!!

The Cat Island Pub holds a lot of memories for me. Almost four years ago I held my rehearsal dinner here. I have come many times before and after that occasion and every visit/meal has been a delight. I have seen staff come and go, but the restaurant always feels like the same place. On Valentine's Day we were greeted... More

We had a very nice meal and the overall tone of Cat Island Pub and Grill is very nice. Despite GREAT efforts from our server and kitchen staff, the time delay for service will cause us to not return until we hear the staffing is better.

Once an enjoyable place to dine, this restaurant has fallen off the charts. We had reservations for 7 pm; drinks orders were taken at 7:45 pm; dinner orders were finally taken at 8:30 pm. Fish & chips ($11) featured soggy cod. Rib eye ($15) reminded us of the old "Western Sizzler;" thin & tasteless. Waitress, who also said she was... More

I have eaten many lunches at the Car Island Pub following rounds of golf. Always a friendly staff, always good, solid pub fare. If you are looking for fancy, foodie, gourmet, this is not the place for you. If you want a comfortable atmosphere with scent pub grub, then enjoy.

We came here on a recommendation from friends that they serve Brunch. It is located at a Golf Resort-Housing area of Lady's Island. Agree with other reviews here as nothing spectacular and has the feeling of a golf club "grab a burger and beer" feel vs. a nice pub and grill. I would say it is "ok" for families especially...

I've been coming here for years, when it was the British Open Pub and now, the Cat Island Pub and Grill. We had lunch there today. The menu now is much as it always has been. Same with the food. Their fish and chips is great, as I could see by my dining mate's order today. I ordered the French... More

We (group of 5) waited at the podium for almost 20 minutes for someone to seat us. There were no other customers waiting to be seated. When someone finally came to seat us, we then had to wait for her to push 2 tables together and reset the table. Menus were DIRTY, stained with food and drink, definitely not appealing.... More
