We had a delicious lunch of fresh grouper topped with lobster sauce on a bed of potato chips and fried spinach. It was hot and delicious. I ordered a side of broccolini which was also good. The server was over the top good. The manager and the owner came by to check on us. The iced tea glasses never got... More

I was a little uneasy about the price but then when dinner was served, what a meal! I could not eat it all! The homemade key lime ice cream was the best I have ever had! Will return!!!

My wife and I found Bistro 217 by accident on Trip Advisor when we were near Myrtle Beach, SC. and looking for a high-rated restaurant. Coincidentally, we were less than a mile away at the time, and starving, we rushed there. We were met by the sweetest server, Linda, who made us feel comfortable right away. When she overheard I...

Located on the main drag of Pawleys Isalnd, this is a popular place with locals and visitors. The ambiance is excellent. Very chic décor, lively bar scene, heated / covered patio area. The place was packed for a December Friday night. Service was excellent. Menu and specials offered a nice variety of fresh seafood, pasta and beef entrees. Our calamari... More

This restaurant provides a reliably good meal. Chef Kirby and staff prepares all the food served. I had the burger at the bar one evening-the meat was freshly ground, the bun kneaded and baked, cabbage slaw chopped and seasoned, french fries cut and fried in the kitchen. No freezer to frier here. And that was just the bar burger! The... More

We have only eaten here a few times and we always say the same thing - it's the BEST. I recently had the cold oyster appetizer with the 3 dipping sauces. The oysters were so fresh and the sauces are so tasty that I didn't want it to end. There is another appetizer with warm oysters that is layered that... More
