Best bets for the tastiest biscuits served up in Pawleys Island

Biscuits are incredibly versatile in Southern cuisine. They can be served simply with butter and jam for breakfast, used as the base for biscuits and gravy—a hearty dish made with sausage gravy—or served alongside fried chicken, collard greens, or barbecue for lunch or dinner.

There is something about Southern biscuits, served hot from the oven, which evoke feelings of comfort, home, and tradition. More than just food, they are a symbol of Southern hospitality. So if you’re looking for the best place to eat in Pawleys Island, narrow that focus to those serving up the best biscuits.

As you might expect, several restaurants near Pawleys Island have embraced this Southern tradition, offering tasty, hot-from-the-oven biscuits in a variety of sandwiches and specialty plates. Here are some of the best options for biscuits in the Pawleys Island area.
