First of all they do have good burgers. But do does a lot of other places. Arrived at Pawleys and we're told it would be a twenty minute wait. No problem. Forty five minutes later still not seated. Staff and management seemed to care less. Inquired to the hostess how much longer and no time was given. So we left... More

First of all, prepare to wait. We have never been there and there wasn't a crowd in front. But, it's a really good burger joint and has salads for those who want to eat healthier. So, something for everyone. The porch is great for nice evenings and the service is a bit slow, but that's because they're all running around... More

Awesome burgers, great beer, simple place. Try the fried crawfish tails for an app. Drink the locally brewed beer. Enjoy it for what is!

Great burger joint! You get to build your own burger or choose one of their specialties, but don't miss those onion rings!!

Decided 2 invite my cousin from Charlotte and make a day trip. We had burgers of course. Very good. We had a short wait. Expect 2 pay a little more. We didn't try a challenge but we enjoyed the display of knives of previous challenges who won. We enjoyed or trip.

For starters this place is filthy. They cater to the young crowd since it's in the heart of 5pts. I've gone 3 times and the food and service were bad. They are supposed to be known for their burgers but each time they were over cooked and dry.

This is some serious bar food. The menu doesn't leave out some southern classics such as crawfish and pimento cheese. The burgers are awesome. We had really great service, and the entire staff checked in at some point to make sure we were doing ok. It seemed like a solid team of employees.

First off, I thought it was a nicer place than it was. I didn't realize it is basically a bar. The food wasn't bad, I liked the chicken wrap I had, but the fries were kinda of bland and the tea was too sweet for my taste. The service was good, this is a good place for college students. The...

I'm all about trying food at various places - to include those dive spots that most people would shy away from. I also like to give those restaraunts that were on Triple D a try. The smell outside of Pawleys Front Porch should have been my first clue to run away. As we walked up to the "Front Porch" it... More
