Going out to eat while staying at Litchfield Beach & Golf Resort doesn’t get any more convenient—or indulgent—than at Coastal Dish. This restaurant is right in the courtyard, making it an easy, enjoyable stop for dining or for impromptu drinks. The breakfast buffet offers the morning staples you count on before golfing or hitting the beach. With service from 6:00 a.m. until 10:30 a.m., the café accommodates early birds and late risers alike. Late lunch and dinner service begin at 4 p.m. Choose a table inside to watch sports while you enjoy a cold drink, or grab a seat on The Deck to catch the sea breeze while you dine. The sandwiches, salads, and seafood entrées showcase a blend of southern and classic fare that’s all its own.
The savory cuisine, refreshing cocktails, and courtyard with beach breezes may leave you dreaming of returning to Bistro 217 before you’ve even settled the check. Make the 10-minute drive from Litchfield Resort to nab a seat at the bar inside or out, where you can enjoy light bites and specialty cocktails, or make a reservation to dine inside in one of the cozy booths. The restaurant serves comfort foods for any palate, from warm potato soup and shrimp and grits to cashew chicken and a slow-cooked Reuben. The menu sounds casual but the flavors are attention-grabbing and bold.
What once was a supermarket is now one of the best restaurants in Pawleys Island. Frank’s Outback is more of a venue than a restaurant, and features four dining rooms, each with its own stunning style, plus a quartet of bars, some inside and others in the beautiful courtyard. (You’ll quickly see why this restaurant has appeared in so many culinary magazines.) With an entire menu dedicated to chophouse favorites, plus wood-fired pizzas, Lowcountry dishes, shrimp appetizers, crisp greens, and entrées starring grouper, short ribs, and racks of lamb, it’s no wonder why the locals keep coming back to Frank’s. Since this restaurant is only five miles from Litchfield Resort, you can make yourself a regular, too.
For an unbelievable view and an unforgettable meal, head to Austin’s Ocean One in Pawleys Island. The five-minute drive back to Litchfield Beach & Golf Resort will scarcely give you and your crew enough time to recap everything you loved about the meal. The dinner menu takes advantage of the fresh, local seafood, including small plates with shrimp, blue crab, and scallops, and grouper and salmon entrées. The chicken, lamb, Angus ribeye, salads, and greens take care of everyone in your party. Even if you think you’re too full for another bite, opt for one of the delectable desserts or an after-dinner drink to savor the panoramic views a while longer.
Though this restaurant is only a mile from Litchfield Resort, its Mediterranean-inspired cuisine transports you to another world entirely. The menu at Perrone’s Restaurant encourages its guests to dine adventurously and provides many opportunities to do so. Offering a full caviar service and a bounty of interesting starters, like beetroot cured salmon and a smoked fish dip, every meal gets off to an impressive start. The fresh catch is sourced out of nearby Murrells Inlet and the forbidden rice it’s served on is a nice touch. Other dishes include an elk tenderloin, a Berkshire pork chop, and spicy crab spaghetti, but an à la carte chophouse menu is also available. If you’re a fan of after-dinner drinks, Perrone’s menu is more impressive than most.
Enjoy a luxurious getaway in the Lowcountry, where excellent dining and entertainment are the standard. With the beautiful suites and spacious vacation rentals at Litchfield Beach & Golf Resort, reunions and family getaways have never been easier. The on-site restaurants, bars, pools, and golf course take care of any whim, leaving you nothing to do but sit back and relax. If you want to venture out, Litchfield Resort’s convenient location makes exploring historical sites or golfing and shopping a breeze.
