We live here. Best crab cakes on earth: Cabana Cafe located bottom of Litchfield Inn. Beach casual. Indoor or outdoor. Great prices. Also Bronzed Grouper. Outstanding. Both of those served with excellent succotash. So good! Try peach slaw and fried okra. Yum!
Three way tie for second place: Frank’s/Franks Outback, Bistro 217, Perrones. Excellent food, pricier, great atmospheres! Call for reservations now! Outside seating available at all three.
Super close third is Chive Blossom. Excellent food. Outside available. Also pricier.
Pizza: definitely is Landolphis.
Bakery: Kudzu. Get the frozen cheese biscuits for breakfast. You can’t eat just one! Also, Pawleys Island Bakery. Fabulous pastries, cakes, cookies, etc.. Small excellent lunch available at both
For Oysters people like the Crab Raw Bar but we don’t go there.
Gios is Italian but great Lobster Ravioli, Pizza and Italian soups.
Capn Johns is good but they serve a more northern menu. Wouldn’t be my go to for a one time visit.
