when this place firdt opened it was great. The prices were right and the food was great. They had someone come in and rrdo the place. Lunch is still very good for the money. Dinner I feel is not as good. The owner recently opened up a new place right next store.

Ate here three times. Fresh organic ingredients with flavors brought out to make any mouth water. Great presentation and wonderful she crab soups. One of our favorites. Love the patio. Makes me feel like I am at a bistro in Europe.

Ate here with family and friends, enjoying the covered courtyard atmosphere. I enjoyed my pear salad, and the scallops were spectacular. Others thoroughly enjoyed their meals as well. It took them a few tries to get my daughters steak cooked to her liking, but they stayed after it until she was satisfied. Would definitely go back and recommend to others.

I don't know how to say anything more than has been said, except we have eaten a lot of places and this will stand out from the crowd. Anyone who comes to Pawley's Island must be sure to come here at least once; we will go back for sure. There's simply nothing not to like.

Top quality fresh local ingredients, plus everything (including the breads) are made in house. Great selection, staff and bar. Love everything about Bistro 217!

Our family chose Bistro 217 for Easter Lunch. Most of the restaurants in the Pawleys Island area were not open on Sunday. We had 4 adults and a 9 month old baby. The staff was very helpful in setting up our table with the high chair. We sat on the covered outside patio. Service was excellent and the food choices... More

Great bar menu. Best butter I have ever had. Steak Tartar was amazing. One of the friends had a filet. All of the food is very good. We ate at the bar sna that menu is different. I will definitely return when we are back in Pawleys.

We had lunch at Bistro 217 and had to wait about 15 minutes for a table. We sat "outside--a clear tent covered area. They had several large groups and once they filed out the atmosphere was much nicer--quieter and calmer. We started with a blood orange margarita and it was delicious! She crab soup was good. The main course was... More
