My husband and I went there on tuesday on Dec.28th This was the second time we were there. My husband ordered the 8oz Rib eye on the early bird special it was mostly fat the first time she brought is 2 small rolls with the butter later on I asked for more rolls she brought us 1 small roll. They waitress was not friendly at all. We were very disappointed this time we live about 45 mins or more away and we drove down just to treat ourselves but we were so disappointed . the house soup was potato leek which had no taste. I asked for a baked potato she said they don't offer baked potatoes anymore so I had the mash which had no taste also. My meal was $34.00 just for me and I could n't even get a baked potato. the vegable they served was not very good either and you can only get that one there are no other choices. For the amount of money we spent it was not worth it. VERY VERY DISAPPOINTED

My wife and I have been dining at the Mayors House only for the past few years. We used to be waited on a very nice young woman named Brittany so we were devastated to find out on our last saturday night out that she no longer worked there. Brittany had our drinks and food orders all the way down to desserts memorized. This time we decided to change things up. Our waitress was less than attentive and quite grumpy. She suggested the fish california style for my wife wich she thought was quite good. I choose the coquille st jaques, wich happens to be the dish that Brittany has always talked me into. It was perfect as usual. My wife and I ended the dinner with dessert wich was quite good. Chet and Karen the owners were there and we spoke with them briefly as we were leaving. We love this restaurant, but the service is going downhill.

We arrived and were greeted warmly at the door. Allison, our waitress, explained the different menus and what was contained in them, including the "Classy Early Bird," which had a large selection of entrees, including two specials. The service was excellent and the food was delicious. We are "locals" and will definitely return many more times.

I decided to eat at The Mayor's house after it was recommended by some friends. I went there on Sunday 5/30/10. They were very busy, I will give them that much. The food was luke warm and looked like it was sitting in the window for awhile. The service was a disgrace! The worse service I have ever experienced..... I thought this place was supposed to be fine dinning. They had a bunch of servers on and none of them really appeared to know what they were doing. I'm very disappointed and I will never be back. The terrible service was my deciding factor for not returning. Very rude servers and the owner was terrible as he was screaming at his staff in front of us!!! The most unproffesional establishment I have ever seen in action. I recommend anywhere else in Pawley's Island, especially Captain John's or Franks. Dont waste your time with the Mayor's house!

We were not real sure about this restaurant to start with. Yes, the building is older and the menu seemed small. The food though was excellent! I definitely recommend the She Crab Soup and the Chefs Tower which consist of shrimp, crab cake, salmon and mashed potatoes stacked atop one another. Prices were reasonable for the quality of food. Service was great but they do seem to try a little too hard to be upscale when the atmosphere just isn't.

First let me say this is a fine restaurant with wonderful food. That being said I cannot tell you the how surprised we were when we noticed a small bug running around my husbands bread plate ! We quietly and discretely trapped it to show it to our waitress and were soon visited by one of the owners. He did assure us that he would take care of it. I guess we should have asked what that meant. We were all thinking that since our bill was well over $200.00 w/tip that some type of discount would be taken off our bill. Wrong.. Only an apology and a very late promise from the other owner that next time they would take care of us. Not even a free glass of wine (used to trap the offending bug). I guess we should have made a big fuss alerting the other diner's of our extra uninvited dinner guest. Maybe we would have been offered something more just to keep us quiet ! Final opinion. Good food but if something goes wrong don't expect the owners to care enough to make it right.

The food was mediocre to the point of where we would ask for our money back if the waiterss didn't seem to need our tip. We felt sorry for her but it was apparent we should feel sorry for the state of the establishment. How wretched was the quality of the food that i was compelled to write this review. It was Sad.

My family and I are from North Carolina. We have eaten at many 5 star restaurants throughout our travels but The Mayor's House tops them all. Right when we walked in we were greeted by 3 women who stood right up for us. The one girl Brittany, who ended up being our server, asked us how many in our party and immediately seated us at a very nice table for 4 by a window overlooking the pond. Brittany again came back and delightfully told us that she would be our server for the evening, we were relieved. She explained the menu and specials with sincerity and then offered our teenagers some non-alcoholic drink choices wich I though was a nice touch. Brittany talked us into the fried lobster for our entrees and then she crab soup with our meals. It was all fabulous. When dessert came around we just couldn't refuse. We all had sundaes with chocolate syrup, whip creme, and cherries. We were getting ready to leave and the owners Chet & Karen asked us if we enjoyed our meal and we were told to return. We most definitely will return to see Brittany's smiling face and for the excellent lobster and she crab soup!

My husband and I have lived here for seven years and just tried the Mayor's House. I don't know why we missed it for this long. Exceptional atmosphere and exceptional food from the homemade soup, I got the chicken, tomatoe bean (yummy) and my husband got the she crab. We are from Maryland and this soup is as delicious as any we had from there. A hint of sherry and thicker than a Phillips milky soup. Delicious!! Salads, mmmm. And for the entrees, my husband got the chicken and grits, better than any Louis' Fish Camp or any other I have had in this state. I got the Escargot over Linguine, very good. And for desert, a Strawberry Shortcake with a vanilla pudding, Heaven!!! I can not wait to go back to try everything on the menu. This restaurant will be a weekend tradition for us now. The absolute best food and service imaginable. Chef Gordon Ramsay should eat here - it is fantastic!!!

we had a wonderful time. The food was delicious: from the drinks,soup thru dessert. The service was very attentive, courteous, friendly and warm. There were four people on our party and each of us was delighted with our food and service. the shecrab soup was creamy and delicious. the grilled tilapia encrusted with onions was crunchy and the fish was moist ( again delicious) we sample the diferent desserts and were cery satisfied. I will recomend this restaurant to all my friends.

We had a wonderful experience - great ambience and very romantic and cozy. Cassandra was our server and could have not been nicer and attentive. Chef Joe came out and introduced himself and made sure everything was okay. We chatted for quite some time and by the end of our meal, we were chatting with Cassandra and Joe as if we knew them for a while. The food was excellent. I would highly recommend the Mayor's House and we are planning on returning before our vacation is over. Great Job!

We visited the Mayor's House on 8/24/08 and had a wonderful experience. We were shown to our table immediately, where our friends were already seated. Our waitress, Cassandra, promptly took our drink orders. The dining room (we sat in the front) was comfortably appointed with partitions that gave the impression of some privacy. We all had she crab soup, which was creamy and quite flavorful. I would have preferred a bit more crab meat, but that's a personal preference. We all enjoyed it. The bread was served warm with a cinnamon butter. The entrees were exceptional. Two people had the pork Osso Bucco, a tremendous portion served glazed and crispy, standing about 8" tall in the center of the plate, surrounded by mashed potatoes and spinach that had been flash fried. The meat fell off the bone and was delicious. The portion was so large, we took home enough to provide another dinner the following night. The crunchy texture and flavor of the spinach was a good complement to the pork. Others around the table ordered the Coquille St. Jacques, the Ocean Platter, (broiled jumbo shrimp, sea scallops & mahi filet) and Shrimp Monachina, (Jumbo shrimp, mushrooms & basil with white wine, marinara & melted mozzarella cheese over linguine). The presentations were quite attractive with ample portions and everyone really enjoyed the flavors. For dessert we had Praline Pecan Ice Cream Pie and triple chocolate cheese cake. Again, everyone was pleased. And the coffee was strong, which is the way we all like it. The service was relaxed, yet attentive. We were so busy talking, we asked Cassandra to give us a few minutes more than once. During dinner and again afterward, Michael, the chef, came out to make sure we were all happy. We told him we were glad we found The Mayor's House and we'd be returning soon.

I have lived in Pawleys Island for over 2 years. Since 1985, my job has involved extensive travel with approximately 400 meals eaten at various restaurants throughout the U.S. each year. My wife and I tried the Mayors House tonight; it was the worst meal in all the 25 years. With such choices as Franks, Bistro 217, Louis', Hanser House and others-- I don't know why anyone would eat here.

Their sauces are similar to canned gravies bought in the frozen food aisle.
