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.

Delicious food. Noisy and expensive. Worth it all for the food. Great service, just noisy! Outside area with fire pit / great for cool evenings.

Chive Blossom may be a little difficult to find (look on the corner for a gasoline station with a blue sign that says ethanol free) but it is well worth it. Drinks are made well. I had a glass of the Gewurtztraminer wine. It is...More

The Chive Blossom benefits from a very creative chef who uses seafood in unique ways. I ordered a starter, fried oysters ( perfectly fried small, sweet oysters) on a bed of fresh corn salad. It was scrumptious. I also had mango gazpacho ( usually a...More

One of Pawleys Islands most popular dining destinations is Chive Blossom Restaurant & Bar. Shaded by signature Lowcountry live oaks, the establishment is owned and operated by Paul Kelly and Trina Renualt, culinary professionals who combine their skills to create Southern classics with flair as well as delicious dishes with Mediterranean, French and Asian influences. Incredible soups are a mainstay; Trina’s crab soup is local legend and not to be missed. All soups are offered in sips to a quart. Enjoy a taste, or take home a bounty! Choose from a variety of speciality salads, sandwiches, entrees and desserts. Only the freshest ingredients are used, and the menu changes seasonally to take advantage of the locally sourced seafood, meats and produce.
