I typically eat at fine dining restaurants. The service and food was very sub par here. Attached is an email i sent to management. To whom it may... More

I cannot say enough about this restaurant that I chose for my son's rehearsal dinner! My expectations were not only exceeded but knocked out of the ball park. I had tried their food and knew it was superb but was not expecting the outstanding service, table accommodations, food quality for a very large group, and the list goes on and... More

Chef Bill Austin wowed the weekend's wedding guests from Atlanta. The guests were amazed at the food for the wedding reception. Since most of the 160 people were from Atlanta, they were blown away by the food and service experienced in 'little old Pawleys Island.'

Ocean One is a restaurant have visited many times. My wife and I have recently retired to Pawleys Island, S.C. We are both very picky eaters with food allergies. This is one of the 2-3 places in the world that we have traveled, that never disappoints. The Chef understands, that if someone is allergic to something the smallest amount is... More

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.
