On our way back to Charleston (this is about an hour and a half north), we returned to a restaurant that's right on the main drag (Route 17); food is not served from 4:00-5:00 but the outside bar at 4:30 was inviting; cocktails were excellent and the bartender friendly, and we were brought a basket of yummy breads; then at...

We recently ate at Bistro 217, after reading reviews on TripAdvisor, and it truly lived up to the wonderful reviews. We enjoyed their veggie wrap, and it was delicious. Our waitress was very attentive and helpful. We will certainly eat here the next time we are visiting this area.

We often go here for lunch. The food is very good and the service is also great. I would highly recommend going. It is a little pricey at night.

Great restaurant. Table dining is pricey but worth it. You'll find a lot of locals eating at either the indoor or outdoor bar where there is a different and less expensive menu. Good selection of appetizers and entrees. Staff behind the bars are great.

This restaurant has a very nice courtyard to dine in. The food is very good and lots of it. It's a little pricey, but worth it.

It was my husband's birthday and we went to Bistro 217 with three other couples. Our waiter was very pleasant and explained the specials for that evening. My husband had the ribeye special and I had the veal piccata. My veal was so tender I could cut it with a fork. The others had the fish specials and were very... More

We ate outside for dinner on Labor Day -- surprisingly, it was one of the few nice places open! So thanks Bistro 217 for working on Labor Day. Employees were very pleasant & service was good. We were seated at the edge of the outdoor dining, which meant a plastic table & chairs & an umbrella as cover. The outdoor... More

Excellent fish, perfectly prepared. Well above average wine list and lovely service. Will be back again. It is near the north causeway to Pawleys Island on US 17. Be sure to try the fried green tomato and fried oyster appetizer.
