Great seafood

This is a great place to eat, I had yellowfin tuna med/rare that was cooked to perfection, mouth-wateringly good! Soft shell crab starter was fantastic. The restaurant is reality small and very busy but service and food are excellent. $130 for two starters, two mains and a bottle of wine. Well... read more

This has been our favorite place for years but the last several times things have not been the same. They seem to always have an abundance of staff and yet your pricey cocktails can sit at the bar for ten or fifteen minutes before being delivered/ same goes for the food. There are a few great servers and a couple... More

Chives Blossom is top on our list of restaurants...anywhere! It is that good! Interesting choices and flavor combinations at both lunch and dinner. Expensive, but worth every penny in my opinion.

This is the perfect little spot for lunch or dinner! The menu changes seasonally, but everything is always interesting and delicious! We make it a point to go to Chive Blossom Café any time we are in town! They have a great outdoor patio area for the warmer months. The atmosphere of the restaurant is warm & inviting, simple yet...

We had lunch and did not have to wait for a table. Started off with a sherry blackberry special drink that was absolutely divine! She crab soup was the best on the Island. Lunch was so good that we almost went to this place twice. The atmosphere is casual but very nice. The wait staff was knowledgeable and did not... More

We came to Chive Blossom last year and had to come back. The service was excellent, the food scruptious and local and so fresh, great wine list. Not inexpensive, however, you get what you pay for here. On the list for our next visit in June.

This used to be my favorite place to eat in Pawleys. During my last visit their main focus was to get us out so they could turn the table. We ordered appetizers and were still eating them when they brought our entree. The entree was cooked incorrectly-raw and then returned overcooked. Our waitress kept trying to take our plates while...

Had a chance to eat here in February 2015, stopped by after being told that the Chive Blossom had some of the best She Crab soup in the area. Let me say we were not disappointed, incredible soup. Menu was fairly priced, and everything we had, braised short ribs, mussels, soup, and salads were all delicious, compliments to the chef.... More

So enjoyed this restaurant. They have several Chicken liver dishes which my husband and I enjoy, but seldom find. The fried chicken liver salad was delish! The She Crab soup, which is offered by most of the low country restaurants, was the best I've ever had. And, their version of shrimp and grits, which included scallops, was perfect. I just... More
