A bit of a hidden gem on Kiawah. Great alternative to the pricey, fancy options that are more normal, standard on Kiawah. The Market at Town Center is just that - a small market where you can pick up some essentials, but also provides a cafeteria style food option from breakfast to dinner. Prices are fair, the food was good... More

Stopped by here to pick up dinner since places close early during the winter and our friends would not be arriving until 9pm. Ordered the Southern Chicken for family - came with 2 sides and corn bread. The staff was very nice - friendly, helpful. The she-crab soup is delicious. You can also buy some groceries, wine and souvenirs while... More

Good food at excellent prices. Very good menu - lots of choices. Also good for children, low key atmosphere, more choices for children than the hotel menu.

This mashup of a market and restaurant really offers a tremendous variety at reasonable prices. The food options are plentiful, with lots of sandwiches, pizza and soups. You can eat inside or outside with a beautiful view of a tropical lagoon, and your food is quickly served up hot and delicious. The market has a great inventory of fine wines,... More

On our last night at the resort we decided to grab something and take it back to the villa. We decided on the Market and were very pleased. First off they have a selection of grocery items should you need something quick without having to drive somewhere off the island. They deli had a nice variety of foods to choose... More

As residents of Kiawah we regularly visit for breakfast and sometimes the occasional pizza. Breakfast selection is very good and delivered to your table in speedy fashion. Staff is very pleasant and manager can be seen working to make guests feel comfortable. A casual place that provides an alternative to the Sanctuary restaurants especially if one has children.

We have always enjoyed getting dinner takeout from here on our trips to Kiawah over the years. Many choices and you can have a "real meal" while kids can get pizza or more casual fare. Salmon and chicken are very good as well ribs and Mac n cheese.

This is a walk-up deli where you order food at the cash register, not the deli counter. Make sure you have your drinks when you're ready to order or you stand in line twice. Prices are steep and portions small

Ordering your food is an odd, clunky, dysfunctional system. The quality of the menu items is on par with an institutional company cafeteria, other than they use higher end deli meats/cheeses. Uninspired, slow, unfriendly, and outdated are appropriate descriptors of this time warp food service. It's unbefitting of Kiawah. Can't they contract this out to a restaurant operator to serve...

I bought breakfast the day prior. We had some leftover bread from lunch that I was going to use for toast the next day. I went into their area where they have free condiments and utensils and took a handful of ketchup packets. We are staying in a villa and I didn't wish to buy a whole bottle for two... More
