  1. several good choices in pawley's island. short drive, but worth it IMO.

    a really good small place is on the right as you turn onto pawley's. it's a little pink building called inlet crab shack. only place in the area you can get fried blue crab claws. it's a bar atmosphere but the food is reasonable and delicious.

      You can also get fried blue crab claws at California Dreaming and Carolina Roadhouse (owned by the same chain). Very good there as well.

      At Broadway I would recommend Liberty -- they have a good happy hour as well (only in the bar) with 1/2 price apps from 4 to 7 everyday.

    2. 2nd the Liberty reference, one of my favorites mostly because I'm a beer snob. Abuelo's is a good upscale Mexican restaurant @ Coastal Mall. Rioz decent Brazilian Steakhouse.

      1. Dear Avalone, what kind of food are you looking for? Joni Mae

        2. Near the Old Pavilion (801 Main St) is Sun City Cafe. Small place with small menu but everything is super. Caribbean/Mexican style food includes tacos (fish, chicken, steak, shrimp or combo) and my favorite the Sun City Chicken - baked lime-cured, chicken breast w/a spinach-cheese sauce. Prices are reaonable.

          1. Salt Creek Cafe is on Hyghway 19 Bypass in the Murrells Inlet area. The address is 4660 Highway 17 Bypass. A husband and wife are the owners-he is the chef and she is the front person. Go for happy hour 3-6. Great values with drinks and meals. The service was great and they really care that you have a great meal and a great experience.
