What to Do at The Windjammer

Enjoy Food & Drink with a View

One of our favorite bars on the Isle of Palms, The Windjammer offers a tasty menu full of food and beverages. What The Windjammer menu doesn’t tell you is that you’ll be enjoying all these delicious offerings from a spacious beachside deck overlooking the ocean. You’ll find everything from spicy buffalo wings and fried pickles to peel ‘n’ eat shrimp and snow crab legs. You can also enjoy a full bar with an extensive drink list that includes specialty cocktails, beer, and wine.

Attend an Event

From country music concerts to Tuesday night karaoke, there’s always something going on at The Windjammer. Check the live music calendar for upcoming events which are open to guests ages 21 and up unless specified otherwise. On most weekends in the summer, you can catch a live band or show at The Windjammer.

Watch & Play Volleyball

The Windjammer maintains a few sand volleyball courts that host a number of tournaments throughout the summer as well as casual pick-up games. Located on the beach, just below the bar’s deck, the main court can easily be viewed while sitting upstairs. Watch from the deck or join the fun and play a game yourself! The beach courts are free and open to the public on a first-come basis unless a tournament is taking place. You can check the volleyball cam to see who’s on the court right now!
