“One of the best burgers I ever had”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 10, 2013

We finally decided to try one more time to eat here since they are usually very busy and packed. We did have to sit at the bar but the service and food made up for it. I would recommend this as casual eating place any time.

“Best burgers you will ever have in your life”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 5, 2013

I have been here several times. I have never been disappointed. This place was on the food channel for a reason as the best burger place to go to. The Southwest burger was offered on May 5 not sure is on the menu every day but it is a must. Incredible!!

“Pawley's is the bomb !!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 5, 2013

We went for my 19 year old son's birthday dinner. Everyone each had something different. From the burgers to the Fried green tomato and pimento sandwich to the Mahi salad, everything was delicious. The appetizer was the fried oysters, and everyone said it was the best they ever had. The service was excellent, and even though they were packed, the food came out in less than 10 minutes. It is a bit pricey for a burger joint, but the quality and quantity of food you receive makes up for it. I can't wait to go back and try another selection, and I am not much of a burger fan.

“Don't eat anywhere else!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 26, 2013 via mobile

Best burger I've EVER had. Went with two work colleagues who agreed they couldn't remember having a better burger. Waitresses and bartenders were super helpful and willing to let you try beers they had on draft. Fried pickles as an apetizer were huge and dang tasty. The outside seating was very relaxed and not rushed by staff. There was a good line by the time we left, but only had to wait 10 mins for outside seating on a wed night at 6:15. The pretzel buns are to die for... Chewy and a bit salty... Perfection! If I lived near this place I'd weigh 1,000 lbs.!
