I meet a buddy of mine at pawleys every time he comes to town. The waiters and bartenders are top notch, not to mention amazing food. A must stop anytime you're in Columbia.

Food was good, but not great. We had a new waitress who seemed nervous but she had a trainer with her. Good move on the restaurant's part. However, my husband's burger was made incorrectly so they immediately offered to fix it... and then it was still wrong. We didn't bother having them fix it again, since it was a very... More

Best burgers in town but almost impossible to get in. "Nobody goes there any more because it's too crowded."

Very thick burger patties. A bit on the dry side. Fries are very good. Cold beer. Clean, pleasant atmosphere.

Good looking menu and food. Burgers were ordered Medium. Why we got was very rare. Waitress took one look and had them make us another one. The burgers look better than they taste though. Onion rings were a miss. The sweet potato fries were tasty. Good beers on tap. Wouldn't rank this top 15 in Columbia.

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.

Quaint place with good beachy feel and amazing big burgers. The price is right and the service is quick...even though you'll want to take your time

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
