There’s something distinctly Southern about buttermilk biscuits, and BisQit centers its menu around these fresh-baked pillowy delights. Of course you can bank on great breakfast and brunch features like chicken and bisQits and bisQits and gravy, they also feature signature bisQit sandwiches that hit the spot any time of day, served on deluxe bun-size biscuits. Bisqit sandwiches include unique combinations like the Lowcountry (root beer braised pork belly, smoked gouda, lowcountry slaw and bearnaise aioli) or the Litchfield (fried chicken, bacon, cheddar and apple butter). On top of this, BisQit also features mouth-watering burgers of every sort, Nashville hot chicken tacos, New England-style lobster rolls and much more. Finish your meal off with one of their sweet and devilish spiked shakes, combining decadent dairy with top-shelf spirits.
Quigley’s Pint and Plate
Just up the road from Bisqit resides its big brother restaurant, Quigley’s Pint and Plate. Ran by the same owners as Bisqit, Quigley’s offers a fantastic menu of traditional pub inspired comfort food with a sassy southern twist. Favorites like beer-battered fish and chips, Shepard’s pie and their pub steak (10 oz sirloin topped with gorgonzola cheese and red-eye gravy) are sure to satisfy your appetite. In addition to the classic options, unique dishes include their savory chicken and waffles (fresh fried chicken served over a sweet potato waffle with honey-pecan butter and sausage gravy) and cajun seafood cornbread (crawfish, andouille sausage and sauteed shrimp in a spicy tomato-bacon sauce cascaded over piping hot jalapeno-cheddar cornbread). Quigley’s is also the only brewery in Pawleys Island, serving up pints and growlers of hoppy ales, malty porters and seasonal brews.
The team of Adam Kirby and Anne Hardee have been associated with the Pawleys Island food scene since opening their popular Bistro 217 restaurant. At Rustic Table, their second location, that high standard is met with mouth-watering dishes that combine elements of classic Southern and Pacific Island cuisines. Chef Kirby has cultivated a fantastic menu consisting of one-of-a-kind dishes that will satisfy any appetite. Brunch options include the Comfy (fried chicken breast served open faced over fresh baked biscuits with sausage gravy and fries), Adam’s Omelet (local shrimp, tomato, spinach and goat cheese, served with roasted potatoes) and the Pawleys Island sandwich (fried green tomato, pimento cheese, ham and bacon on Texas toast). For dinner, signature dishes include seafood pesto (scallops, clams, shrimp and white fish over fettuccine with a basil pesto cream sauce), blackened mahi over dirty grits with andouille sausage and an iron-skillet ribeye served with loaded baked potato, steamed broccoli and crispy onion rings.
The purveyors of Perrone’s Restaurant describe their style as “world cuisine with a Merideterranean focus”, and a look at their wide-ranging menu will make clear how they utilize global inspiration to create memorable meals. Unique starters include pulpo y chorizo (Spanish octopus poached in olive oil and herbs with house-made chorizo sausage), pork and kimchi egg rolls and seared piquillo peppers stuffed with goat cheese, rosemary and thyme. Signature dinner options range from their spicy crab spaghetti (jumbo lump crab meat tossed with garlic, chives, arugula and roasted roma tomatoes) to their divine center-cut filet mignon, seared to perfection at 550 degrees. In addition to the fantastic food options, Perrone’s is renowned for their cocktail selection, which includes a tantalizing selection of aperitifs and digestifs that ensure a perfect start and finish to every meal.
