Description: One of Pawleys Islands most popular dining destinations is Chive Blossom Restaurant & Bar. Shaded by signature Lowcountry live oaks, the establishment is owned and operated by Paul Kelly and Trina Renualt, culinary professionals who combine their skills to create Southern classics with flair as well as delicious dishes with Mediterranean, French and Asian influences. Incredible soups are a mainstay; Trina’s crab soup is local legend and not to be missed. All soups are offered in sips to a quart. Enjoy a taste, or take home a bounty! Choose from a variety of speciality salads, sandwiches, entrees and desserts. Only the freshest ingredients are used, and the menu changes seasonally to take advantage of the locally sourced seafood, meats and produce.

Always an amazing meal consistantly. Charming location and building, maybe a little too loud however.

No fried shrimp & hush puppies here. Offering an extensive menu for such a cozy place, this is the perfect low country fine dining option. After several visits, this has become my "go to" place.

Every single time we visit Pawleys Island we eat at this restaurant. The She-Crab soup is absolutely heavenly! The soup has layers of flavor. The first layer of the taste is wonderful and the flavor builds in your mouth. It's like my taste buds are basking in golden rays of sunshine! You will find real crab in the soup. The soup has a wonderful aroma and beautiful, authentic color. The desserts are also great. Try the almond toffee cheesecake. It has a great crust on the bottom with a delicious blend of toffee and cheesecake on top. It is a unique dessert! The entrees are always delicious also!

We ate here 3 times over the holidays. Had something different each time. The place was always crowded,but the food was outstanding.this is my 2nd review of chive blossom and I would give it 10 stars if possible. We have never had a bad earl here and they always seem to impress. We came from Charleston and have thought about driving up for the day sometime soon so we can eat here again

We came upon this quaint little restaurant and loved the look of it, so I looked it up on trip advisor. It had a excellent rating and overall good reviews, so we decided to try it for lunch. It was awesome! I love the "sip of soup" option as we had already had the house garlic spread for an appetizer (yum) and we didn't want to fill up too much before our meals were delivered. We all had sandwiches and all were very good, but the roast beef sandwich was out of this world!!! We also had dessert--black cherry crime brûlée--and coffee. Every bite at this meal was excellent and I thought great value, as our total bill only came to $85--not bad for appetizer, soup, sandwich and dessert for 4 people. We will definitely go back!
