“Neat Place”
Reviewed June 24, 2014

Visited Paley's for lunch. The Mahi Mahi Tacos were great. Burgers were fresh and juicy. Serving sizes were good. Fresh cut fries nice and crispy. Service was good and friendly. Atmosphere was very relaxed. It was a neat lunch experience. I will visit again

“Really good burger, cold beer...”
Reviewed June 17, 2014

There was a time when Pawley's was the undisputed king of burgers in Columbia-town. And I'm not saying they aren't still, but it's closer than it once was--which is a testament to the plodding but steady evolution of culinary culture in the capital of the palmetto state.

Lunch or dinner, if you're looking for solid apps, cold beers, and a great burger: this is your place.

It can be tough to park but just figure it out & get there!

“Great burgers and fried pickles!!”
Reviewed June 9, 2014

Amazing hamburgers and fried pickles -- earned its props from Diners DIves and Drive Ins -- sat outside, enjoyed the burger, too big to finish. Also excellent service. No complaints. The pics say it all.

“Love the Menu”
Reviewed June 8, 2014

My family loves Pawleys! The burgers are great--love the gourmet combinations! Fried green tomatoes are awesome! We've been 3-4 times. We've experienced a little inconsistency with the food--last time we were there the balsamic reduction wasn't even put on the appetizer (and it's my fav)--the waitress implied that it wasn't usually added (even though it's always been on the appetizer and is even described as such on the menu). I will say that service is hit and miss. Sometimes we have a good experience, sometimes we have a lot of errors and a lot of waiting. The waitresses stand in the door to the kitchen and chat while we wait for tableware and/or drink refills. It's obvious that the staff are predominantly college students that aren't very conscientious about providing exceptional service. That aside we do enjoy Pawleys and will go back.
