I'm heading back to Pawleys for vacation in a few weeks. What's changed since this time last year? Openings, closings and the latest greatest please! Thanks.

    Hmmm I can't think of many changes recently in PI.
    Chive Blosson, bistro217, and franks are musts!
    We have had good meals for raw bar type seafood at Pawleys raw bar (blue crab)
    Get carried away, kudzu and sweet mans bakery to stock your rental.
    The farmers market is looking nice this year...Wednesdays on the road beside the fresh market

      I bought the best tomato of my life, homegrown heirloom, a couple of years ago at a little stand set up in front of a little shopping strip. I can't remember the name of the strip, but it was across the street from close to where Pawley's Wine Shop and a mexican restaurant are located. With bread from Kudzu and a little Duke's, it was transcending.

      I've never eaten at a raw bar. Is everything literally raw? I love barely steamed oysters but haven't ever worked up the nerve to try raw. What do you recommend at Pawley's Raw Bar? Thanks so much for your help. It's so nice to converse with a local. My husband and I have been going to Pawley's for vacation for 25 years now. Our 25th anniversary is on this trip and I would love a special evening. Frank's Outback is in mind or possibly Gulf Stream Marina, but I haven't been to GSM in years. It seems I remember the spectacular sunset more than the food. Any news on that front? By the way, I live in Florence and make it to the beach 3 to 4 times a year. Again, thank you.

        Sunset is still great at Gulf Stream ...food e ehhh...if you wanted the same view but better...much! ...food try capt Dave's dockside. Absolutely delicious with a fantastic view.

        The veggie stand you are talking about is the same strip mall as get carried away. It is great place to grab things to eat at the rental/ picnic.

        Yes the raw bar has steamed. We get Lowcountry boil, clam, oysters in season, shrimp...you can pick different size amounts to try different things!

        Congrats on 25 years!!!!!!
