Started off with a bowl of hush puppies. A little on the sweet side but we managed to eat all of them. Appetizer of oyster on the half shell. Large and tasty.

My husband and I are there. We walked over from Litchfield Beach and Golf Resort. They were gluten free knowledge and broiled my scallops, shrimp and flounder in a separate pan. Scallops were cooked to perfection and very tasty. Nice wine selection too!

Anytime we are in the area, we go to Hanser House to eat. The food is good home-cooking and calabash style seafood. The hushpuppies are outstanding!

My wife and I heard that HH had softshell crabs. We like them cleaned and pan-sauteed. They were large (2) with sides. They were perfect.

We found Hanser House during a recent trip to Pawley's Island. The service and atmosphere could not be better. We ordered from the petite menu and were served a gracious plenty. We will drive past Murrell's Inlet to eat here again.
