We are just seconds from the Hammock Shops and have been here since 2007. You’ll feel right at home at IBG Pawleys, with our friendly staff and outstanding food! Come enjoy our outdoor patio where we host live bands throughout the year and most major sports packages shown on the outdoor TV’s. Watch your favorite sports teams in our main dining room and in our upstairs sports bar on one of our 30 TVs. Each and every guest that walks into our establishment is considered family, and our intention is to provide the best, most friendly service possible. Our team believes that whether you are a local or just visiting our great area, you deserve nothing but the best.

Our bands are in full swing, 5 nights a week through the summer, and we have Karaoke moving to Monday nights through the summer with #DJJessieJames. We’re always happy to entertain groups, so please let us know if you’ll be in the area and how we can help you! Please come in and visit us soon; we think you'll be glad that you did. - Doug & Angie Doolittle, co-owners

Gotta say, we are regulars at IBG. I love the shrimp quesedilla, the burgers and the fish bites. It's not fancy but it's fun!

“Outside entertainment”
Reviewed October 7, 2012

This restaurant has entertainment on various days. We visited when a husband and wife duo called Latitude was there. I believe that he was a member of the New Christy Minstrels at one time. He plays the guitar, she plays the keyboard. They both have good voices, were fun to listen to. The food and beer and service was very good, sitting outside in a deck that held about 12 - 15 tables. We had salads, chicken wings. Another member of our group had oyster po-boy and he reported it as very good.

“Best food and staff!”
Reviewed September 3, 2012 via mobile

We live in new York and come to pawleys island for two weeks out of the year. We absolutely love the island bar and grill. Food is amazing! The staff is excellent. They are so sweet and down the earth. The cooks are even awesome to talk too. We look forward to coming here every year! Everyone should give this place a try!

“Poor Ranking for Poor Service”
Reviewed July 27, 2012

Drove down from Garden City on Monday for happy hour drinks and apps to avoid the whole Murrells Inlet frenzy. Heard of this place a few times and thought it would be something off the beaten path. Half pric apps are only a slimmed down version from the app menu...nothing spectacular. Unfortunately, I cannot comment on the quality of the food. First of all, wait person/bartender seated us and never offered happy hour specials. We were given full menus though. Ordered 2 beers and had to ask for the app menu. Got our beers and she became non existent, only too happy to bs with the locals. Left a 5 spot on the table only to return to Murrells Inlet Marsh Walk and dropping around $100.00. We will not be back to Island Bar and Grille.

“Pretty good food, pretty bad service”
Reviewed July 17, 2012

Hostess met us at the door with surly "Do you have reservations" for a 25% full restaurant on a Monday night. We were a party of 5. We chose to sit outside. Food was okay, but the hostess' attitude seemed to have filtered down to other waitstaff except for our main waitress who was exceptional. Food was slightly above average but the wait was very long. Once the food was brought out, they told us 2 orders had not been delivered to the kitchen, making the wait even longer. We won't be going back.
