It’s a lovely day outside and you and your buddy are driving some golf balls out on the green. What better way to start and top your afternoon than to come inside Lady’s Island Country Club for some delicious grub at the Royal Pines Bar and Grill?
Every Thursday, Lady’s Island Country Club has a buffet at lunch, and every third Thursday of the month they feature a special prime rib dinner with other entrée options. Also, on Sundays, hungry restaurant goers can feast on classic brunch dishes including crab omelets, steak and eggs, or blueberry pancakes from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.
On this Thursday afternoon, popular local chef, Chef Will, prepared Lunch Bunch some tasty food, each dish for $8. Buck’s chicken BLT looked mouth-watering and he hailed it as one of the best chicken sandwiches he’s ever eaten.
Our new salesperson Nikki couldn’t resist her love for Italian and ordered the grinder with ham, Genoa salami, onion, pickles, tomato, lettuce, Provolone and Italian dressing on a hoagie.
Pamela’s ahi tuna salad, as recommended by our excellent waitress Glenda, looked gorgeous. Pam loved the flavor and texture of the mandarin oranges and cashews. She said the tuna was cooked perfectly. I also went the tuna route, ordering the tuna burger with a tuna steak two inches thick! The homemade coleslaw was a delicious side.
Elizabeth had the black bean chicken quesadilla, which she said was really yummy. And Gene ordered the Blues Burger, a burger with crumbled blue cheese, lettuce, tomato and sautéed onions on a Kaiser roll.
If you have a sweet tooth, I highly recommend one of the clubhouse’s homemade cookies.
After lunch, we all got to hit a few golf balls out on the course under the sun. It was a wonderful afternoon at Lady’s Island Country Club.
