Whenever the girls gather for a weekend at Pawleys, I cross my fingers that we will have time for a meal at Bistro 217. The food is always great, they have very different, interesting and local specials, and you are guaranteed nice dining in a great atmosphere. Always a treat!

First let me say that I may be biased because I have a gluten allergy and my selection was extremely limited. The server seemed indifferent to my allergy, and seemed irritated about it, so that set a bad tone from the start. The Cobb salad was ok, nothing special. It was loaded with a lot of turkey and ham, I... More

The food was real good, but what I loved the most was the service and how pretty the staff was and how professional they were. They really take good care of you, and even the owner takes time to make sure you are taken care of. I just absolutely love it. Oh yeah, and the food was scrumptious!

Been to this restaurant many times. Last time with my girlfriends we all had the same thing, a special cheeseburger of the day. It was wonderful as always and especially the french fries. Excellent service they treat you like special guests , no request is too much trouble. The owner Anne Hardee or her manager Shawn always stops at every... More

We had an amazing lunch. I enjoyed the special bbq pulled chicken quesadilla. Chicken was moist, the accompanying salad was perfect and French fries rounded out this fabulous meal. My friend had the grilled BLT. It was amazing. The sandwich was overloaded with applewood smoked bacon. This full-sized sandwich also included a salad and cup of potato soup. Fantastic. We... More

We ate dinner there for the first time and were very pleased with dinner and service. Entrees are pricey and ala carte but are generous. Wait staff very knowledgeable and friendly.

I choice to sit in covered outdoor area but should have chosen inside because more conducive to fine dining. I ordered the eggplant/seafood which had a very rich sauce so I took half home and was good the second time as well.

After the commercialism of Myrtle Beach, Pawley's Island is a delight. And this restaurant is a charmer. Ambience is ruined somewhat by the entranceway but once past that, you get seated in a very nice dining room. We had a seared scallop salad, which was much larger than expected and very well done. My better half had Fish Tacos, which... More
