Clubhouse

The Clubhouse at Dataw Island is 40,000 square feet of Southern grace. Storied spiral staircases lead to grand windows that open to maritime vistas. Food preparation and presentation are forms of art here. And whether you’re enjoying casual pub fare or the local seafood, the culinary masters create gourmet delights prepared so that the flavors linger as long as the conversations.


At the Dataw Island Club the culinary staff does not take their role lightly. The team is regarded as one of the best in the area and they prove that night after night with each meal they serve.

The formal dining room which features both indoor and outdoor seating serves the kind of meals you will talk about for weeks to come. Spectacular dishes that blend classic recipes with the freshest local ingredients are combined with a “Distinctively Dataw” imaginative twist. The extensive wine list complements the ever changing menu of chef de cuisine Penn Ten Eyck. Creative meals, spectacular service, views of Jenkins creek and the company of good friends…islanders call it the Dataw difference.

The Pub is the perfect alternative to the formal dining room. Although more casual, the attention to excellence in the Pub is just as high a priority. With an astonishingly wide variety of the items on the menu the Pub has something for all tastes.

The Pub is a favorite for lunch or dinner with friends, drinks after tennis or a quick stop to settle up your golf bets. The recently completed renovation opened up the Pub to spectacular water views while the new patio is a popular member’s choice for cocktails by the fire while the sun sets over Jenkins Creek. An extensive variety of wines and beers, appetizers and the new “lite bite” menu make the pub the place to meet old friends or to make new ones.


The Tabby Room, featuring a verandah, private bar and fireplace, is designed for more intimate gatherings or small meetings.

The Carolina Ballroom features a large foyer with private bar and grand piano, wrap-around verandah and state-of-the-art audio-visual equipment and can accommodate larger groups. Dataw’s culinary staff is nationally trained and offers excellent cuisine with a Lowcountry flair.
