Greatest place in Pawleys for everything from gourmet sandwiches to seared seafood salads. Fabulous homemade ice cream too!

The Bistro never disappoints! We enjoy the fine dining menu as well as their creative specials. Selections for every palate and if possible - save room for dessert. The bar menu is great for a more casual meal and the staff is attentive, knowledgeable and so very nice. Their commitment to the community is much appreciated and visitors will always... More

Would highly recommend to anyone. Not necessarily a family stop, yet great for a date night or to show that this area does have fine dining.

Our favorite place for lunch on the Grand Strand. The triggerfish salad is my favorite and my wife had flounder salad. Good for dinner, also.

We have been a frequent customer of Bistro 217. We like their food and service. But tonight (April 15, 2017) for a friend's special birthday, we brought an amazing cake from a local bakery. When we arrived they said it would be a $10 charge to bring our own cake. After spending $50 on an amazing cake for them to... More

We visit the Myrtle Beach/Pawleys Island area frequently. There are lots of restarants in this area, and we've eaten at a number of them. This place has become one of our favorites with very good food and great service. They have several brands of beer, and the bartender makes a mean martini. There is a decent wine selection. The entrees... More

I ordered the scallop salad and the tomato crab soup-both were very good. Hubby ordered grouper-it was good but the portion was so small it was ridiculous It was a party of 12 and we were seated near the kitchen-my back to the walkway --there was constant traffic and it was VERY loud in that back corner. If I go... More

The food was excellent. The wait staff was pretty busy that night, so things were a little slow, so if you are in a hurry, this might not be the spot for you. Would definitely go again! I ordered the tenderloin and shrimp over a potato pancake with Gruyere surrounded by creamed spinach. It was delicious. We went with friends... More
