Mingo Point Oyster Roast

Every Monday night during the summertime months, there's an Oyster Roast held out at Mingo Point. I say "Oyster Roast" loosely because it's a lot more than oysters. There's oysters, crafts for little kids, nature talks, a buffet filled with amazing food, a great view of a marsh sunset, etc.

My parents, a family friend, and I all went down to Mingo Point last Monday night to check things out. My parents and I had never been before so it was something we were able to cross off of our Kiawah to do list. Plus, the weather was cooperating and it was a good night to be outside.

 This is venue that is often used for weddings &/or receptions. Can you tell why? Gorgeous.

 They do have alcohol for sale at the Oyster Roast. There were four types of wines, a couple of local beer options, and some mixed drinks. I stuck with the pinot grigio as per usual.

The oyster fans in our group. My mom and I opted out of oysters for the buffet.

 My plate: loaded baked potato skins, barbeque chicken, red rice & sausage, mac & cheese, and pulled pork. Everything {with the exception of the chicken} was outstanding. I went back for seconds on the rice, mac & cheese, and pulled pork. We also went for a bike ride as soon as we got home from this because we ate soooo much food.

 They do a nature talk each week for all of the kids that are at the event. I may not qualify as a kid anymore but the program was on alligators, so I had to stick around & listen.

 Mingo Point is one of our favorite places to bike to. The views aren't too shabby and every once in awhile you can spot a dolphin hanging out back here.

If you ever come out to Kiawah to vacation in the summer, I highly recommend hitting up this Oyster Roast. It's a little pricey but well worth it.
