This was my 2nd time at Pawley's and I've loved it both times. The burgers are big, taste great and are unique. You also get your choice of bun and how it's cooked. I also got the sweet potato fries w/cinnamon, but the Angus beef burgers are well worth the price. Last but not least, all the servers are very... More

I was near USC campus and the 5 points area is where it's happening. Great Burgers here and also draft beer selections with some local craft. Not the best looking place but very good food at reasonable prices. Our service was excellent. I'll be back.

We were headed home from Florence and Columbia showed up at lunch time. My wife jumped on TA and we ended up at Pawlys porch. We had some fantastic fried crawfish in a sauce that any Cajun would give a huge thumb up. Then came an isle of palm pimento burger and a wadamalaw burger that would make u slap... More

I enjoyed my meal here, I ordered the Fripp island burger with Frank's red hot onion rings. My burger was done perfectly and I liked the flavor of the onion rings but they were very crunchy, almost unpleasantly so. I will likely not order them again. But I will return to try one of the other great sounding items on... More

I love the atmosphere, it can get a little loud. They have nightly specials so make sure to look those up! Best thing on the menu-the cheese dip with the fries!!!

We were pleasantly surprise at how good the burgers and chicken wraps were here. I saw an episode of "Diners, Drive-ins and Dives" in which the restaurant was featured. The meat used in the burgers on the episode was extremely high quality. My daughter is a freshman, and she has already been back at least once to the restaurant. She... More

Recently ate here because we heard it had been featured on Guy Fieri's "Diners, Drive- Ins and Dives". Cool spot for a burger, a beer and some buttermilk ranch fried chicken tenders.

We rented Pawley's Front Porch for 2 hrs and it was a HIT! The fish tacos were my favorite. One can select up to 4 different types of food items to have on the Food truck menu so there's a variety to choose from. Each item comes with s side item (chips or French fries). Prices were between $7 to... More
