The Best Restaurants In Pawleys Island

A bell rings twice daily at the historic Sea View Inn on Pawleys Island. It’s an invitation to the Lowcounty-inspired breakfast and lunch that goes out to both the inn’s guests and the public (with a reservation!). On our historic island, the Sea View is the only place the public can opt to “dine out.” But the Pawleys mainland — just a short distance over the causeways — offers a literal feast for the senses! Home to a range of restaurants, mainland Pawleys will satisfy the cravings of the most demanding diners.

Pawleys Island Restaurants such as Bistro 217, Frank’s, Chive Blossom, Gio’s and Perrone’s complement fresh seafood and prime meats with creative, seasonal menus that provide memorable dining experiences, but what makes the area’s food scene special is its diversity. bisQit, home to an eclectic menu and delectable milkshakes, and Rustic Table, specializing in Southern comfort food (yes, it’s as good as it sounds), help lead an unforgettable collection of restaurants that deliver outstanding meals in a casual environment.

The dining experience is an important part of many trips, and Pawleys Island is a foodies paradise.
