We received a recommendation to have lunch at Chive Blossom during a day at Pawley's island, and we were blown away by the food! The unassuming exterior hides an amazing menu of southern specialties, all with a fresh, local-sourced flair. We enjoyed the local greens salad with crab/tomatoes/artichoke hearts, crab stuffed deviled eggs and fried green tomatoes. It was all... More

Arriving at Chive Blossom for lunch, I was a bit apprehensive. It looked more like an older coastal house than a restaurant. Once I stepped in the door, my apprehension disappeared and was replaced by delightful aromas, white tablecloths, chandeliers, and a room full of obviously very happy diners. The menu was equally as unexpected. Innovative choices using locally sourced... More

It advertised pet friendly, miss. Booboo and Sampson (2 dogs) were the host. We call just to make sure as we were on our way there. The lady told us dogs are not allowed. I pointed out the web sight said different. How disappointed we were

Friends told me to visit this restaurant and I was wonderfully pleased from the pre dinner drinks to soup appetizer and main course Had the Hoo Doo which was a nice change from a classic bourbon drink. She crab soup was the best I have had Chef cooks the sherry into the soup rather than pouring over the top. Definitely... More

Last minute lunch destination. We were able to make a reservation. The food was perfect. Try the seafood gazpacho...more like a chopped salad and delicious.

This place is small so you should have a reservation but if you can't you can sit at the bar. All the dishes I've had here are good but crab may be their best. The varied menu makes it special.

Long story short...we went there for dinner with our mentally handicapped daughter and I wanted to see the menu before we were seated. I was concerned there wouldn't be anything she would eat and didn't want to pay a big price for a meal for something she would not eat. While I as doing that, my husband overheard the hostess...

We were driving around looking for a place to eat and sort of stumbled across this restaurant. We were blown away, to coin a phrase. It gets crowded, we were lucky to get a table. Shawn was our waiter and could not have been nicer. Very creative dishes. Unique rendering of fried green tomatoes, extensive wine selection (would have liked... More
