Loved the atmosphere- it's in a college town and has the college feel. My son enjoyed going as we are here for a tour of USC- GO GAMECOCKS! My son loved his burger and mine was just "OK".

This the best burger joint in SC. The sweet potato fries are awesome also. The bar and out door patio are just as awesome as the burgers. If you are ever in the mood for great burgers and drinks then this is your spot.

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
