Friend s of ours had told us about this restaurant before we drove down to the coast for a mini-vacation. Our friend who lives in Pawley's Island wanted to go there, too! There is good reason for that. I had a delicious "Pork Osso Bucco"...More

This restaurant is not on the beating path. We missed it the first time we rode by and had to turn around. It is a small but beautifully decorated restaurant. We did not sit in the big dining/bar area. We were in a separate dining...More

Chive Blossom is the place to go. The Crab Cakes are the BEST I have ever eaten. The salad is great also. Their seafood is just wonderful. The service is just as great as the food.

2nd time for us. When I told my brother that we were going there for lunch you could tell he was visibly excited. White table clothes in this quaint cottage style place. Not a wine drinker but many others were enjoying their selection of wine....More

The menu is built around local, in season ingredients. If you love seafood, you'll be pleasantly surprised. My husband isn't a huge seafood fan, but enjoyed the Osso Bucco. Service is good. Small and intimate restaurant.

One of Pawleys Islands most popular dining destinations is Chive Blossom Restaurant & Bar. Shaded by signature Lowcountry live oaks, the establishment is owned and operated by Paul Kelly and Trina Renualt, culinary professionals who combine their skills to create Southern classics with flair as well as delicious dishes with Mediterranean, French and Asian influences. Incredible soups are a mainstay; Trina’s crab soup is local legend and not to be missed. All soups are offered in sips to a quart. Enjoy a taste, or take home a bounty! Choose from a variety of speciality salads, sandwiches, entrees and desserts. Only the freshest ingredients are used, and the menu changes seasonally to take advantage of the locally sourced seafood, meats and produce.
