“Not the cheapest burger you will find BUT one of the BETTER ones... Good Variety”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 23, 2012

At $10- 12 a meal for a burger Pawleys may not be everyday dining, but should we really be eating burgers everday :) .. Great place to go for a great burger if you are willing to pay just a little more for something better than the expensive combos of todays fast food world anyway. Recent visit reminded me of just how much I like it. Delicious! Definite must from time to time. Don't tell my fitness trainer.

Tuesday offers 1/2 price specials on burgers from 4-7 but limited to dine in. WELL WORTH IT !

Great beer select or mixed drinks to go with a variety of options for burgers. Bring a big appettite, burger is huge. You are paying a bit more but you are definitely getting it.. nice side choices fries, onion rings, pasta salad, etc. Even sweet potatoes fries are offered. Awesome change from the norm.

Outdoor Patio/ Bar is great on a nice day.
Place gets packed , especially in evenings. Usually a college atsmosphere but enjoyable for all.

“A $10 burger worth every cent”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 19, 2012 via mobile

Packed with college students at lunch on a Sunday but service was still great. We sat at the bar to avoid waiting. Bartender was attentive but nonintrusive. Had over 15 beers on draft. Ordered the onion rings and the burger with Boursin & green tomato as they were our server's favorites and I was very pleased.

“Average speciality burgers”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 3, 2012

Stopped by for a burger after someone recommended Pawley's. I ordered the Caw Caw burger and while it was good, it wasn't anything to write home about. I ordered it medium and it was slightly overcooked which made it dry. The toppings were all very good. I had hot onion rings as my side and was disappointed. Great beer selection!
