Stopped in for a drink, checked out menus, decided to have a few appetizers. Had bang bang shrimp, light battered and delicious. Bartender was pleasant,friendly and informed us of all the specials they had. Thoroughly enjoyed this unexpected stop and will go back !!

Great comfortable casual dining. Nice menu with various seafood choices. She crab soup was rich and creamy. Great shrimp, scallops that were very fresh. Pleasant choice from the many seafood restaurants offered Pawley.

This place was one of the highlights of our trip. Everyone was incredible friendly, including the owners. The food was awesome and very reasonably priced. We wouldn't think of ever visiting anywhere near here without coming back to the Hanser House. Thank you!!

Excellent service. I am not hard to please but in all honesty the flounder was overlooked and dry, the scallops were overlooked and rubbery. The shrimp was ok. Baked potato was not done and the squash casserole was not good. I would not return here.

Great place,great food, great service. We had a party of 14,we had excellent service, everyone was very pleased with their food. The hushpuppies were amazing. Seafood was fresh and servings were huge. She crab soup had large pieces of crab very tasty. They catered to a shellfish allergy by cooking the fish in a separate pan. Awesome service.

We visited the area the week after Thanksgiving. We ate at Hanser House on a Wednesday. Some of the restaurants had closed for the season, but this one was still open. We chose it because we were eating fairly early (around 6 p.m.) and it was not advertised as a night spot/bar. They do have a full service bar. They... More
