Our group of 11 arrived promptly at 5:45 on a Saturday night and was sat at a beautiful arranged table. We didn't seem to get much time to settle before our waitress wanted to take our drink order. She seemed very much in a rush hurrying around the table to take our order when there was literally only 1 other... More

After a long walk on the beach, it's was time for lunch. Expecting the Cabana Cafe to be open, we where a little underdressed. No matter. We were greatly welcomed anyway. My wife and I both ordered Austin's Famous Grouper Sandwich. Absolute classic! Best Grouper sandwich ever! Wonderful ocean view and our server,James, was very helpful and nice.👍✌️️

We have walked past the area many times, but never went up and got a menu. The threatening warning on the walkway for "non-guests" had kept us away. The cabana cafe looked good for fried items, but the ocean's menu was what we were looking for. Linda took great care of us and the chef delivered great seafood. We were... More

Service, food, ambience - everything first rate. Love that they also have "small plates" on their menu - leaves room for dessert!

It was our first time at Ocean One and it did not disappoint. Food was amazing and service was outstanding. Beautiful ocean view. Everyone should try this restaurant whether you live here or just visiting. Definitely not one you want to miss out on.

This was our third trip to Austin's Ocean One, and possibly our best from a cuisine perspective. We make a point of eating here every time we visit Pawley's Island. The view is great with a view of the ocean from almost every table. The food... was absolutely spectacular! From the bread and appetizer to the desert, every bite was... More

A fine upscale restaurant this place offers an ocean view. A wide menu don't be afraid to try one of the specials. A little known fact is that the cooking is done here for the Cabana bar downstairs.

My husband and I had one of the best meals every here. Large portions. I had the Ring of Fire, so good. Husband got a steak special. He could not eat it all! Crab cake is a must to try here.

While staying at the Litchfield Inn we were invited to a shrimp boil. I wanted to take a dish but was limited as we were staying in a hotel room. A lady from Austin's One saved the day by fixing a large bowl of their "Angry Mac" which is one of our favorites. It was a HUGE hit. They also... More

Wonderful views with a fabulous chef! Do I have to say more... It is an upscale, panoramic view, ocean side restaurant on top floor. The chef uses all fresh ingredients in his preparation. Crabcakes with Southern Succotash was amazing! It is not a place for young children, only open at night. A must if you want to enjoy a romantic... More

Austin’s Ocean One features a breathtaking panoramic ocean view from every seat in the restaurant. Our guests are treated to daily dolphin sightings, beautiful evening views, full moons and the occasional surfer! Regardless of the weather or the time of year, the view is always interesting and serene.

Our Menu~~
The Ocean One menu is eclectic Contemporary American. The menu changes frequently based on seasonal availability of locally sourced products, fresh produce and the daily catch. We prepare all of our sauces, dressings and desserts on the premises and every dish is made to order and can be modified to your personal preferences.
