Food was average. The duck and salmon were "fine". The wine list pricing is outrageous. A reasonable mark up is expected, but their pricing kept us from buying one of the better wines on the list. A glass instead cost over $10.00 and was served in a dime store glass....That translates into a loss for the restaurant.

We were seated next to a window overlooking the ocean. Beautiful. The staff was friendly and attentive. Delicious duck, mashed potatoes and spinach. The entres come with a great salad, so actually not too pricey. My husband's fish was also wonderful.

We are locals and love to eat at Ocean One. It is always excellent. I can't imagine what happened on Easter. Perhaps too large a menu? We waited 1 1/2 hours for our dinner and then had duck that was inedible. It was so well done I could not get the knife through it. What a disappointment!! Next year we... More

Situated on the beach in Pawley's Island, this is the perfect place to watch the sun set. We chose to wait on a window table which was worth the wait. We shared calamari, spinach-strawberry salad, and pistachio crusted grouper. Servings are generous so it was plenty for both of us. It was all exceptional!

We chose this restaurant to take our brother and sister-in-law for their first dining experience in Pawleys. They loved it so much, that they made reservations that evening, for the night before they returned home to NY! The service was great and Cindy served us both evenings and is a seasoned wait person as well as an excellent wine Somalia.... More

My husband and I enjoyed a Valentine's Day dinner at Austin's Ocean One. The view was spectacular. They say there are no tables without a view, but I would say that the view from the tables on the back window would be best. We sat by windows on the side of the restaurant, and although the view was great from... More

Fresh delicious food and very professional friendly staff!! We were greeted right away by the very accommodating manager and decided to sit at the bar. Wonderful company by the bartender dave. I recommend the scallop app and the pistachio encrusted grouper but everything I've ever had there was fabulous!!
