UnknownThe Lunch Bunch traveled to the Lady’s Island Country Club in Royal Pines this week, and once again, we were treated like Lowcountry Queens. Lori Westerfield, Events Coordinator at Lady’s Island Country Club, invited us to enjoy the Bar and Grill’s casual cuisine.

We started with an entrée for the table to share, the Club’s signature Crab Quiche.  We were quite pleased with each bite of savory crabmeat, which exceedingly overpowered the egg and cheese favors.  Needless to say, the quiche was gone in less than 2 rounds of the table.

Royal Pines Bar and Grill has the typical Country Club menu, perfect for a post round of golf meal or a girlfriends’ luncheon.

Elizabeth and Kim were in the Soup and Sandwich mood, each ordering a cup of the Tomato Bisque and thoroughly pleased with their selection. Kim paired her soup with a BLT on Wheat and Sweet Potato Fries, while Elizabeth favored the Triple Melt Grilled Cheese with American, Swiss and Provolone Cheeses.

Christina opted for the French Dip, Roast Beef and Provolone with au jus on the side. She also asked for the Sweet Potato Fries, which the table agreed were the favorites of the week. When you go to the Club, the Sweet Potato Fries are a Must-Have!

April, still counting her Weight watchers points, ordered the Pita Pocket filled with Turkey, Swiss, Raspberry Vinaigrette, Sliced Almonds and Baby Greens. She carefully added her low points for that selection so that she could order the Cake Brownie for dessert. And, boy was it heavenly! Yes, she shared!

Heather asked for the Chicken Tenders and Onion Rings, and I opted for the traditional Cobb Salad, complete with Mixed Greens, Diced Chicken, Bacon, Egg, Tomatoes, red Onion and Cucumbers. Each of us finished our portions…eagerly.

The meals at Lady’s Island Country Club are reasonably priced. Most selections are between $5 and $8. The service is outstanding, and the atmosphere is relaxed.

The Club also offers banquet services for private events.  The Club has a pool, a dance floor and a large dining facility, ideal for a wedding, corporate meeting or club gathering.

My family hosted my mother-in-law’s 70th birthday party at Lady’s Island Country Club, and we were delighted with the professional staff, the delicious food and the casual environment. I highly recommend calling Lori Westerfield at 522-9700, ext. 224 to book your next event.

Thanks Lori and the staff at Lady’s Island Country Club for the delightful experience.

"I love Wendy Pollitzer’s writing. Her instincts are remarkable, her nose for truth infallible.
