Perched on high chairs and table in the bar, there is no better place in Pawleys Island for lunch than Bistro 217. Always inventive specials, usually Adam or Elvis comes out to check on the meal's reception. Great waitstaff that's been there since the get-go. And the food never disappoints. Uptown and sophisticated décor but downtown delicious!

Went to lunch today with my mom and brother. 2 of us had the specials, pork tacos and almond encrusted trout salad and mom had her "usual" asian shrimp salad. Everyone was very happy with their food. My salad initially had blue cheese crumbles (not my fav) but the server was very gracious about getting one without it! A lovely... More

We had a great lunch for New Years Eve. The luncheon grouper was delicious and the lunch special was special. Will definitely go back.

We've been here several times before, but never reviewed it. We noticed that the chef had been chosen by the SC Governor to be SC chef ambassador for 2017. So we went again. My wife and I are around 70, so if portions are generous (which is the case for our experience with this restaurant), we often split a meal.... More

Ate here last Friday for my birthday dinner - our first visit to Bistro 217. Bruce was our server - he was excellent! Knowledgeable, fast, courteous and considerate. Everything was wonderful, from the Bistro's Manhattan cocktail, to the perfectly-cooked filet, to the scoop of homemade salted caramel ice cream I was surprised with for my birthday (with a candle). Great... More
