Just got back from a family trip in Pawley's Island and I just have to say, the Bistro was absolutely wonderful. Our server Pam was both lovely and attentive during the lunch service. We'll be back again next July!

Another lunch with the girls at one of our favorite restaurants. Always greeted by a friendly staff. The varied menu has something for everyone. Delicious soups, great salads (ten to choose from) and entrees such as their excellent burger; Pad Thai; fish tacos and a fresh corn beef reuben. But you need to save room for desert! Home made ice... More

Wonderful fresh food, every time, at this PI jewel! Wonderful selection of salads with/without seafood additions, Home-made goodness! No frozen freezer stuff here! We've tried almost everything on the menu over the years, and have yet to be disappointed!

Salad specials are always a good bet. The salads are a meal. Then we had to share the flight of house-made gourmet ice creams... chocolate with cayenne, key lime pie ice cream, come on!!! Great wines complete it.

nice atmosphere, staff, and food. a little upscale and pricy at dinner, less so at lunch. very good food, wine selection, and many good choices- just look at the menu and you will see an interesting selection.

Wow. She-crab soup and tomato-crab-jalapeño soup were delicious! The pan-sautéed lunch grouper was great as were the fried spinach and oysters. Anything on the menu would have been wonderful. We'll be back when in Pawley's Island in September!!

Stopped here for lunch today. Got the fish tacos. The tilapia is cilantro encrusted & fried. It's topped with lettuce, chipotle mayo. The best tho - the homemade ice creams! The salted Carmel is to die for!! Apparently they have a pastry chef from France - makes homemade carmel just to use in the ice cream. I would make the... More

I don't care for the interior of the restaurant but the patio is great. The bar area is wonderful and our bartender, Patrick...well he's the best thing since sliced bread!

I had the opportunity to be introduced to this restaurant last evening, July 9, 2015 and all I have to say is WOW ! I can understand why this establishment proudly displays a Trip Advisor Award inside. We were two couples, and each of us salivated over the others dish. I myself had the 217 Eggplant Treasure Chest which is... More

The salmon was very good. My husband had the ribs that was so big it reminded me of a turkey leg you get at Disney, but very tender and fell of the bone. This place by far has the best she crab soup on the island.
