Bistro 217 is the #1-ranked restaurant in Pawleys Island and features local, American fare with an emphasis on seafood.

Said one reviewer of their May 2019 experience, “I loved it so much, I went back a second time the next day to make sure I didn’t imagine it. Service, hospitality, great food, well-orchestrated wine selection, hot and cool vibe. This place has it all!”

Coming in at #2 on TripAdvisor’s list, Frank & Frank’s Outback is a favorite among locals and visitors because it provides two great restaurants in one location, each serving up creative dishes with proteins that are sure to make your mouth water. Looking for the best appetizer anywhere around? Well, it just might be F & F’s Deep-Fried Deviled Eggs with jalapeno and bacon.

#3 is Pastaria 811, a family owned and operated Italian restaurant making Italian specialties from scratch including bread made daily, homemade sausage, meatballs and sauces. Try their Abruzzi Bread and Tomatoes – it is to die for.

TripAdvisor’s #4 restaurant in Pawleys Island is Perrone’s Restaurant and Bar, which offers up world cuisine with a Mediterranean focus. Open for lunch and dinner, Perrone’s list of more than 60 classic and modern cocktails is perhaps the most extensive on the Strand.

Said this March 2019 reviewer, “Just an amazing dining experience from beginning to end! We eat here every time we visit Pawleys Island. The service is attentive and friendly, and the food is Michelin-star quality. Too many favorites to list.”

Finally, Caffe Piccolo is the #5-ranked restaurant. Their menu features Italian dishes with a fresh, Lowcountry flair, and the scene in their dining room is as delightful as the aromas are intoxicating.

Noted this April 2019 reviewer, “Last night we lucked into some of the best Italian food we have ever had. We knew nothing about the restaurant until we saw it listed online. Not only was the food delicious, the outdoor seating made it even more special.”

With so many great Pawleys Island restaurants to choose from, the good time doesn’t stop when the golf does. Book your Caledonia Golf Vacation today and experience the deliciousness for yourself!
