Average place for those "funky" style (aka things you see on the Food Network or Top Chef) burgers. I, for one, am sick and tired of fried eggs on everything! A little too pricey for what you get. The hype about this restaurant is more than the reality.

Great place for burgers! Not much else on the menu. I got the Beaufort with fried egg and onion ring my wife got the pin me to cheese with jalapeño bacon. Both were outstanding! Got fried picked for app. Large portion. Price is over 20 bucks a burger

Excellent burgers if you are in the mood. There are various other menu items that the kitchen staff will gladly alter if you request. For instance I enjoy the shrimp tacos for lunch. However they come with fried shrimp. If you simply request them grilled the staff will oblige. There is also a great selection of craft beers on tap,... More

The crawfish tails were an excellent appetizer. The fries were very good but the burgers didn't have allot of flavor and was too lean and dry for me. Service was excellent.

Actually, my buddy from Spain came to the US for several months - visited (and ate in) NY, Chicago and DC - and declared that the burger at Pawleys was the best meal he ate in the whole USA. Hard to argue with him. They make a mean burger. Good place for beer and watching a game too!

Is the food good most times yes sometimes a little over season one of the best burgers you'll probably ever have! but if I want to come in and do school work or work on my lunch break they only give 20 minutes worth of Wi-Fi usage ridiculous!

If you want a great burger, look no further. Whether you are dining at their restaurant or their food truck, there's always a line/wait but be patient, it's worth it

We visited Pawley's because of the reviews on Trip Advisor. If you like burgers then Pawley's offers almost any combination. The burgers are large. We ordered the fried green tomatoes as an appetizer. These were probably our favorite. They are layered with crab meat and Boursin cheese. We chose the Isle of Palm burger. Pawley's is not a fancy place... More
