This place has great food and great owners. I am not into trying new things but I am glad I did. I have a friend who is good friends with Trina and Paul and Paul cooked us a private dinner one night. Very good food and very friendly people. Don't let someone else's review turn you off this place. It would be a shame you miss a chance eating their food.

I can only imagine how disruptive and rude the family who wrote such a bad review of this remarkable restaurant must have been. That's no excuse for the language used by the owner, but this is a small place and 20 people showing up without a reservation would have been very difficult to seat. Add to that a confrontation which was probably rude and demanding, and it's easy to see how the owner preferred for the people to leave than to seat them in her restaurant. This is without a doubt one of the best meals I have ever been served anywhere. DO NOT let that bad review keep you away. Consider the source and realize she probably got what she had coming to her (minus the bad language which was, again, uncalled for).

We have been following Chef Trina around the Myrtle Beach area for 17 years. It is a treat to go to the Chive Blossom. The food is consistently excellent. Only complaint is the noise level when they are really busy which is almost always!

Our family always vacation at pawleys island for the last 35 years. We were there last week on the12 of august. It was an awful experience. Making a long story short, we arrived at 6:15, 20 people, sitting outside. After 90 mintues of not having our food served, having 4 small children we questioned the owner. After lots of talking and explaining herself she said get your shit and get the f...out of her resturant. Shocked. Embarrassed and having our grandchildren hear her words was the worst thing I have ever experienced. My daughter who she was speaking to was 8 months pregnant and had her small children with her!i I would never recommend that resturant ever..

We were vacationing at Pawleys, as we have for many years. Our experience at Chive Blossom was aweful because the owner was drunk and belligerant. The food is very good. We had lunch there the day before this experience. It took our waiter 1 hour and 15 minutes to put our order in to the kitchen. We had asked for the toddlers pasta to be brought out as soon as possible when we ordered. When we complained about the very slow service, the drunk owner went crazy and started screaming and cursing at our party in front of small children. It was very bizzare and we will not return.

We have been vacationing in or around Pawley's Island for three years now and Chive Blossom is a must do on our list. We have never been disappointed with the food or service. We find ourselves commenting often throughout the year about what a great time and meal we had. Counting the days until we return in August

We live in Pawleys Island. When we go out to dinner, this is the place that we go. With all the other choices on the Grand Strand, its our favorite spot. Food is outstanding! You will not be sorry!

My husband and I discovered this restaurant last year while on our annual vacation at Pawleys Island. We are "foodies" and this restaurant can hold its own with the best. Wonderful, sometimes unusual, tasty and well presented food, very friendly, knowledgeable and attentive staff, pleasant atmosphere... the only downside is that the noise level can get rather high making it sometimes difficult to have a quiet conversation. This is our favorite place on the island - didn't even bother to drive into Charleston this year....

I went in for lunch the other day and it was awesome. There isn't a better place to be in Pawleys Island. I can't say enough about how great this place is. I will be back many times. Thank you.

I dined at the Chive Blossom 6/19, 6/17, and 6/15! My husband and I travel the world as enthusiastic foodies and I would recommend the Chive Blossom to anyone who wants to enjoy excellent, regional cuisine in an energetic bistro atmosphere. The menu is witty and creative while respecting the traditions of the perfect, unadulterated bowl of She-crab soup. It surprised, delighted and satisfied.

Food is good but nothing that could compete with an above average Charleston eatery.
