This place was awesome. The best shecrab soup in SC. Had 12 people and everyone was extremely satisfied. Dinners ranged from the NY steak to the braised beef to the various fish specials to the house burger. Unbelievable large portions. Excellent seasonings and presentation. Wanted to try a signature desert but no one could down another bite. Had a great... More

Eclectic menu charging top dollar for run of the mill dishes. What ever is popular they throw it on a dish

We started with soup, then my wife had snapper and I had salmon. We finished with peach cobbler (my wife) and creme brûlée. Everything was excellently prepared and the service was faultless.

The food here is really good .. Entrees are large enough for 2 to split after an appetizer and a couple drinks. We really enjoyed our meals.

We love going to Bistro 217 -- the menu items are inventive and delicious. The wait staff is attentive and they were able to do sauces on the side for our teens.

Enjoyed an excellent dinner here on our vacation this past week. Terrific food and service, very nice atmosphere, good selection of wine/cocktails. My husband raved about his meal (from the daily specials...pistachio-crusted snapper over shrimp risotto) and my veal was delicious, as well. Would definitely eat here again and recommend to others. We did see a few children with their... More

Ok. This restaurant was a surprise because I would not have guessed how large it was based on the view from the street. Good points were soups, steaks. Onion soup was a bit salty tasting. Seafood was so-so and shrimp risotto was overdone. Ice cream is homemade - try the three-portion sampler. Don't get me wrong. This is a nice... More

I never miss having lunch here on any of my trips to Pawleys. The tomato/jalapeno/crab soup is the best ever and the she crab soup is also wonderful. They have a wide variety of entree salads that are all delicious. My favorites include a crispy Thai shrimp salad and a shaved grilled chicken salad with tortilla strips with a lime... More
