“Rice Paddy - Highly Recommended!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 24, 2006

I spent my whole life going to Pawley's Island in the summer and love this area so much. Georgetown, SC is a great little historical town right on the water. You'll find some charming little shops with a boardwalk behind them right above the water's edge. The historic homes in the area are also great to tour.

But one of my favorite restaurants is hidden right on main street on the corner (hidden because there is no real sign that stands out). It's "Rice Paddy" and it makes an EXCELLENT place for a lunch on a sunny day or a relaxed dinner one eve.

The atmosphere is one of the positives with very high ceilings, all wood floors, old brick walls with Persian carpets and interesting artwork on the walls. The lighting is tasteful and each table has a candle and small flower arrangement. Grabbing a lunch at a table near the front window ranks as one of the favorite ways to spend an afternoon in the area.

As stated by another review, the SERVICE is excellent, some of the best I have had anywhere. Thankfully, the food is also well prepared and served with care. IF going for lunch, which is highly recommended, you cant leave without having the OYSTER PIE!

While sitting at the bar on a Saturday night, you'll see many locals come through, calling the bartender by her name - it seems everyone speaks to each other and all were friendly. The place just has a great atmosphere with a good "life" to it.

If looking for somewhere to eat in Georgetown, SC area, this would be one of my first choices, without a doubt.
