We stopped by Pawpaw’s after a long day of site seeing in the downtown area. We were seated quickly and had attentive service. The shrimp and grits were very good as was the fried chicken which had an especially good dipping sauce.

Their list of small plates / appetizers is extensive. Portion size on appitezers is on the large side. After a few appetizers it was a chore to finish our main course. Biscuits were outstanding. My sword fish was some of the best I have ever had. We will definitely be back next time we are in Charleston

My wife read the reviews and we stopped by for lunch. I had the fish of the day special and my wife had the fried chicken sandwich (best she ever had). Food was great service amazing. Ask for Cole and have him hook you up with the truffle fries you will not be sorry they are AMAZING.

We had a short visit here only enough time for drinks and a snack. I highly recommend their martinis and crab dip.The inside is warm and very welcoming I can't wait for my next Charleston visit for a great supper.
