I chose 'Bistro 217' as the restaurant we would visit for my birthday while we were at the beach this year and was very happy that I did. Everyone at our table had a wonderful meal, in particular, my husband said that his flounder was one of the best fish entrees he has ever had. This restaurant has come a... More

Large family gathering on a Saturday afternoon. 217's staff were wonderful, and the food was outstanding. Crab cakes and stuffed mushrooms were nice appetizers. The Seared George"s Bank Scallops was perfectly done; others were very pleased with their Miso-glazed Salmon, pan seared Lobster/shrimp/scallops, and Chicken Carbonara. Other than a warm patio, our visit/gathering could not have been better. Wish we... More

The Beauty and I took her two sons, wife and girlfriend and three granddaughters there for our farewell dinner after hosting them for a week. Our server, Jamie, was outstanding. A high chair was provided for the nine month old. The hits were the two filets with shrimp cooked perfectly. The shell fish and pasta was also good. For the... More

Went in for lunch and I was extremely pleased. Service was prompt and very fast. Ordered the Triggerfish salad and soup. The salad was one of the best I have ever had. Both the soups we ordered were very good. Prices were very reasonable. Even dessert was good. The place was somewhat hard to spot because of its small signage... More

Unique and interesting combinations combined with great ingredients = best food in Pawleys. They have some of the best fries and the sea food special was great. Second visit for Lunch was less wonderful as they were packed (rain so no beach= busy restaurant) but still good

I have eaten here many times but was highly disappointed this time. We had the fish tacos and the special of the day, flounder salad. The flounder was tasteless and the tilapia was overcooked in the fish tacos. We spoke to the mgt about possibly a change in ownership but nothing had changed. On the positive side the tacos were...

We have eaten at Bistro 217 on many occasions and always had great meals. This time, I ordered the seared scallop salad. Big mistake.The greens were not swimming in dressing; they had long ago drowned in a sea of dressing. The scallop was sliced horizontally so that I would think there were four on the salad, but I am not... More
