“A Charleston experience at Pawleys Island”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 5, 2012 via mobile

Our group of 15 hungry gregarious tennis bums invaded this little place for the 2nd year and really enjoyed ourselves. Our waitress Martha was patient and helpful with our varied requests and got each and every order correct. The place was busy on a Sat night but we didn't feel rushed or inconvenienced. The pace was excellent as was the food. Very creative menu with an obviously well trained chef and kitchen staff. While not for the budget minded it was well worth the visit and we will be back next year. There is outdoor seating but we preferred inside dining this year so the smoke from the fire pit would not detract from the dining experience. The humongous "cup" of she crab soup was superb - creamy, crabby with just the right amount of sherry. The grilled grouper with accoutrements was outstanding. Some of our group had the red snapper the previous night and raved about it as well.
So, go if you don't mind spending a little more. My meal without wine or dessert was $40. Martha got a nice tip too! It's not much to look at from the outside but it's one of the area's better restaurants.

“Really good food.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 5, 2012

A little different spin on low country cuisine - some interesting menu choices. Fresh fare, nice servers and a cute place. The portions are ample. Next time I will select a "small plate". Everyone at our table enjoyed their meal.

“Mother, Daughters”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 20, 2012 via mobile

My 84 year old mother, my sister and I are enjoying a wonderful vaca here at a Pawley's Island. We enjoyed our first time visit and will be back soon. Short ribs, grouper, and salmon were delicious. Pete was an excellent server.

“Top Notch”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 10, 2012

One of the best, if not the best, dining spots in the Litchfield/Pawley's area. I have dined here several times and it is always a treat. Loved the Nacho's and Oyster's for Apps. My wife and I split the crab cake entree and shared a dessert. Wonderful all the way around. I would recommend leaving the kids out of this one and enjoy.
