Mingo Point Oyster Roast and BBQ

Mingo Point Oyster Roast and BBQ is Kiawah Island Golf Resort’s longest-running event, a treasured family favorite and a genuine Lowcountry tradition offered over most major holidays and every Monday evening all summer long. Guests of all ages enjoy feasting on fresh oysters roasted over an open fire, along with other BBQ specialties such as ribs, pulled pork, smoked chicken and grilled steaks with all the Southern side dishes and desserts you could ever desire. Plus family fun, live music and more activities. Best of all is Mingo Point’s natural setting—right on the banks of the Kiawah River.
