We stopped at Hanser House on a whim driving through town and were so pleased we did. Debbie had dental problems and we needed some help. Our server Grier, took excellent care of us. I love Louisiana food and culinary adventures. We were told of...a trial recipe that night, Cajun Shrimp and Grits, and I jumped on it. An owner, Heath came by to see how I liked it and we tried a taste of their new Stone Crab Soup as well. The soup was very good, but the Shrimp and Grits were enough for me to travel the 75 miles to Pawley's Island... well quite often.More

I notice there are no recent reviews, perhaps because there are no positive reviews since 2014? My husband got a steamer pot of oysters, once you got into the shell, the oyster was approximately the size of jelly bean and so over steamed they were...like rubber. I got fried shrimp and fried oysters. It was the absolute worst fried seafood i have ever eaten, if Dominoes served seafood it would be better than Hanser House. It was nasty and dark. If you want a plate of old greasy fried food this is the place for you!More

Ordered Amber IPA received Hazy IPA. Waitress corrected after I finished entire dinner. Ordered Caesar salad. It had no dressing on salad. I must say fried oysters were good. Cole slaw was mushy! I used to love this restaurant but they have lost their heart!

Been coming here for years, but until now hadn’t tried this gem. Less tourist traffic, plenty of parking, nice atmosphere, good menu, great food, and good service. All you need. Try the jalapeño grits!! Light crust, moist grit fritter with a little heat kick! Excellent....Entrees are all solid. Enjoy and we will be back.More

We came to Hanser House on 9-11-23 around 6pm. We were seated with no wait and immediately ordered. Patty gave us excellent service and our food came out rather quickly. One of us ordered the Grilled Pawley's Platter which was fresh and delicious. The generous...amount of bite-sized hushpuppies with whipped butter that came with that meal as an appetizer were delicious and addictive. Two of us each ordered Granny's Grilled Chicken Sandwiches with fries and another side. Absolutely delicious and all 3 meals were the perfect amount of food. We will definitely return on our next trip to Pawley's Island.More

We visit here at least once a week while staying in the area. Happy Hour 4-6 finds us at the bar. Bar specials and petite plates are plentiful. My hubby likes the Creek shrimp and I like the scallops - broiled for $1 extra. The...fried onions are amazing as well as the squash casserole. Ambiance good. Waitstaff always gracious and helpful.More

I felt like the goal of the restaurant was to get my table turned in 30 minutes. I had not drunk half a beer before the server offered another one. The salad came seconds after ordering, followed by my crab cake dinner while I still...had more than half of my salad before me. The server took my husband’s plate away and asked if he wanted dessert while I still had more than half of my dinner still uneaten. This place may have tradition and all, but they need to slow down and let their diners enjoy the experience. This is the slow season. There were less than a dozen diners in the place and it was only 5:00. We were out of there with the bill paid by 5:35. Not my idea of a $100 meal. Won’t go back.More
