Great burgers!

My husband & I really enjoy coming here when we drop our son off at U of SC. We've been here several times and always love the burgers. We went during lunch time so we didn't have to wait too long for a table. We sat outside on the deck, it was pretty hot out but the fans helped. Server... read more

I'm all about trying food at various places - to include those dive spots that most people would shy away from. I also like to give those restaraunts that were on Triple D a try. The smell outside of Pawleys Front Porch should have been my first clue to run away. As we walked up to the "Front Porch" it... More

We wanted to experience some college atmosphere without the deep dive into a 21 and over bar. There was a nice mix of USC students, families and football watching barflys. We had burgers, they were big, juicy and awesome. I liked the portable draft dispensers brought table side.

This was my first visit. The burger I ordered-The Edisto-was out of this world. The fries weren't great-too soggy and greasy. The chips and salsa were good as was the service. They were a little crowded but it was a Saturday night. We didn't have to wait too long for a table even with the crowd. I will definitely be... More

We ended up going on half price entree night by accident. It was a out 30-40 min wait for a table. It was wall to wall college kids. Only a few of us over 40 in there and we noticed the bar area, a standing room only area became more crowded and loud as we finished up our meal. We... More

I came here with my family and we all got something different but every burger was cooked how it was ordered and the service was fantastic. There is a good variety of food as well. Get the sweet potato fries, they are seasoned with cinnamon and sugar.

Stopped in for a beer. Great atmosphere. Really great burger options. Buffalo shrimp tacos were very good and everything tasted fresh. Would definitely visit again. Staff was very friendly.

We had an early evening meal and really enjoyed it. The BLT with fried green tomatoes was so good. Although neither of us ordered a burger, we understand Pawley's is known for their burgers.

Casual, relaxed atmosphere. Serves liquor and lots of beers on tap. You can decide to eat outside or in. Great burgers, salads and wraps. Fun place would definitely go back!
