Superb!

We've eaten here several times. The food and service are impeccable! A bit pricey but worth it. Go, you won't be disappointed.

We spend a lot of time in Pawleys year round and have always enjoyed this restaurant and have told many friends about it. The last two times we have eaten here, the food has just been ok, and the prices have continued to climb. In the best the chef made it around to the tables and checked on people's entrees.... More

We have been here for lunch twice and also for bar appetizers at their happy hour. Both lunches were wonderful. We had the crab nachos twice and I must say they are out of this world! They have some nice wines as well. The only reason for the 3 rating instead of 5 was because our waitress at our second... More

Back when I first began coming here in the early eighties the place was a beach kind of dive. now it tries to keep pace with Franks. Food is on par but service has a long way to go. If you charge these prices the service should be commensurate with that pricing. Our server was somewhat distant and not always... More

We were so pleased to be able to meet with a large family group that included children. We had reservations so we were seated quickly. Our appetizers were phenomenal...crab, fried green tomatoes with pimento cheese...you have to try these! Quaint atmosphere inside and out...great place to eat...we will be back

While the food was very good, the overall ambience was poor. The staff was aloof. When I asked where the restroom was, the hostess jerked her thumb toward the outside. Yes, you have to go outside to access the restroom. We were seated at a very small table, butted up to a windowsill that was awkward. We were also seated... More

Place was great. Attentive wait staff, great decor. Food was outrageously good. Pricey and hard to get a reservation but well worth eating late or getting a tiny table in the corner.

We came here for a late lunch almost by accident after taking a quick spin onto Pawleys Island. We noticed this place on the way back and it looked charming and like a place that the locals go. What a great lunch!! Not cheap but certainly affordable and you get bang for your buck at lunch. Highly recommend the pepper... More
