Food Fabulous, Ambience Changed
The Rice Paddy Restaurant in Georgetown, SC, was put on the map by the "Susans," wonderful, inventive, hard-working local Pawleys Island gals that built the restaurant up from a tiny lunch cafe to a vibrant , "seen and be seen" lunch and dinner experience!!! The Susans worked tirelessly with an amazing staff to repeat a stellar dining experience day after day, and night after night! It was hard to get a reservation and the bar was always packed with locals and tourists alike!
Presently, the restaurant is under new ownership. We have continued to go to enjoy some of our favorite dishes that have remained on the menu, from the Susan's era. The food is still yummy, but the ambience is suffering. We hope, with time, that will change.

My husband is handicapped
My husband is handicapped and I alerted restaurant that he wd be in a wheelchair and transfer to a regular chair at the table. Staff was ready for us when we arrived for reservation with a ramp at front door and a well thought out table to accomodate his special needs. I was VERY IMPRESSED with their thoughtfulness and efficiency...we had a wonderful evening!

We were overly impressed with the amazing food at Rice Paddy. We had heard great things about this little gem and were so thankful we decided to give it a try. It's well worth the short drive if you're staying in nearby Pawley's island on vacation. Amazing food, great wine list, outstanding dessert. You won't regret it. I can't say enough good things about it.

Great choice for a business lunch!
The Rice Paddy was a great experience for a business lunch. I had requested a table in a corner for a group of 6, away from noise, and the table setup was perfect. It was also all ready right at the time of the reservation and we didn't have to wait at all. Will come again soon. Perfect place for clients!

Excellent meal experience
My wife and I shared the crab cake appetizer and it was great. All crab meat and no filler. I had the Bahamian Style Grouper entree and it was the best I have ever had. My wife had the Fresh Fish Picatta (Grouper) with Capers and Lemon Butter, served with Creamy Grits. She loved it and shared some with me.......it was excellent. Overall...we had a wonderful dining experience and plan to visit on a monthly basis.

Excellent and Relaxing
We arrived about 15 minutes prior to our reservation time of 5:30 and decided to have a drink at the bar, although we could have been seated immediately. Bar service was impeccable and drinks were exceptional. Beastly Bill, my partner, said his Bourbon Old Fashioned was the best he had ever had (and he's had quite a few - lol!). My cosmo was excellent also. Once seated for dinner, I ordered the appetizer special of roasted brussel sprouts with a béarnaise sauce - Bill and I both really enjoyed it. My main course was crab cakes over creamy grits and Bill had the Prime Rib special. Both were excellent - in fact, Bill said his Prime Rib was the best he's ever had. The evening was very relaxing and satisfying - highly recommend.

a favorite - consistently good-
This is a favorite restaurant we have gone to for 26 years .Even though it changed hands a few years ago the food is always wonderful . There are the good mainstays that are always always excellent but the restaurant offers variety as well in their specials . The bahamian grouper is the best prepared fish I have ever eaten and this restaurant remains a favorite. Always our top choice for the area whether for a romantic dinner for 2 , or to entertain family or friends .
Particular favorites that are amazing are the bahamian grouper, the bacon wrapped oysters, , the red and blue salad, the shrimp and corn chowder and the crab cakes . Oh yes and the quail, yum! It is all good. Even those who eat light leave clean plates here.

Thank you for a great night out.
Awesome dining experience. Food was superb and so was service. Pricey AND well worth every penny. Thanks for an evening of dining with my new wife that I will never forget.

Best in Georgetown!
The entire experience was first class, from the generous pour of Scotch through three courses and a cognac. The service was friendly and attentive without being intrusive, and each course was interesting and well-executed. I would recommend this restaurant to any of my friends, especially since the other restaurants we visited in Georgetown were far below this high standard.

The scallops were perfectly
The scallops were perfectly seared. The gumbo appetizer was excellent but a little too filling

Last Dinner at Rice Paddy
As usual when near Georgetown, SC, we have dinner at the Rice Paddy. This time, a few weeks before Christmas, was no exception. And as usual, nothing disappointed. Service and food were excellent. The Christmas tree this year was the prettiest we've ever seen there, and the location at the front of the restaurant was perfect. Thank you for another fine evening!
