Our guests are treated to daily dolphin sightings, beautiful evening views, full moons and the occasional surfer! Regardless of the weather or the time of year, the view is always interesting and serene. Our Restaurant~~ There is a small private dining room at Ocean One, The Fish Bowl, which can accommodate up to 14 guests in a private setting with an ocean view. We also have a completely separate banquet room, The Spirit Room, for private party catering from 10-100 guests. Our Menu~~ The Ocean One menu is eclectic Contemporary American. The menu changes frequently based on seasonal availability of locally sourced products, fresh produce and the daily catch. We prepare all of our sauces, dressings and desserts on the premises and every dish is made to order and can be modified to your personal preferences. Wine Wednesdays and Specialty Cocktails~~ Ocean One has an on staff Sommelier to assist in your wine selection from our extensive list. On Wednesday evenings all bottles half priced – Wine Wednesdays! There is a large selection of great wines by the glass and specialty cocktails prepared with our own infused alcohols. We’d love to have you dine with us!

“Great food, bad decor.”
Reviewed March 18, 2013

This place has amazing food and a great view of the ocean, but the decor is like a very bad high school prom or a cheap disco. They are better than that. My advice - grab a table by the window and keep your eyes riveted on the view or on your date. As another plus, they have really knowledgeable, attentive service.

“Another gem in Pawleys”
Reviewed March 17, 2013

I know I'm going to love a restaurant when there are about 10 appetizers and entrees that I want and have trouble making up my mind. Kind of an "old-fashioned" restaurant feel, it's an older room, with less than modern furnishings, but the view (during daylight) is spectacular. Service was spot-on, got a quick cocktail and got the wine list right away, which is a quirk I have. All of our entrees were very good to excellent, appetizers were great, the desserts we shared were outstanding. Wine list could offer a little more, but was still good enough. I was thoroughly surprised by this place, sort of went here by accident. Put this up there with Bistro 217 and Frank's as Pawley's three best restaurants.

“Lovely location and excellent grouper sandwich!”
Reviewed March 12, 2013

We have eaten at Ocean One several times - both lunch and dinner - and have yet to have less than an excellent experience. The location overlooking the beach is perfect, the service is good and the menu items we have selected have been outstanding. We have taken guests there many times and never been disappointed.

My favorite item on the lunch menu is the grouper sandwich. It is the best I have had anywhere.

“Fabulous Restaurant ocean view!”
Reviewed February 24, 2013

The chef at this restaurant must be the best in the area! The view can't be beat, either. The Grouper is always perfectly cooked and the She-Crab soup is wonderful.
