Saw this place listed on Diners Drive Ins and Dives. It was a little off our path to our destination, but it was so worth the side trip and added time to our destination. Great atmosphere, excellent service from Deanna, unique menu items, and delicious...More

Lunch at Pawleys today. Chicken sandwich was not very good. Mealy as if it was marinated too long. It was inedible. Hamburger a bit dry but cooked to order as expected. I would rate it a 7 out if ten. The pretzel bun was what...More

Ridiculously good burgers! Fun Five points atmosphere. Pimiento cheese burger is awesome! Try the sweet potato fries. Definitely won't leave hungry!

The burger taste good - at least what of them you can get into your mouth. They start falling apart after the first bite. Had to finish up with a fork.

In the review of another restaurant I stated it is difficult to rate a restaurant after one meal. Well, Pawley's Front Porch is the exception to that rule. My wife and I split a hamburger and French fries. We requested the 'burger to be 'medium-well'......More

Stopped at parleys on our way to Atlanta. Saw it on Diners, Drive-ins and Dives. This is for sure a dive...and not in a good way. The restaurant was dirty and the food so-so. Burgers were ok but overpriced. The onion rings and French fries...More

First off, if you're looking for any ambiance other than that of a college bar, you're in the wrong place here. College bars often serve good burgers, though, and this is one of those. I couldn't eat the burger and all the fries (hand cut...More

Hello! I'm sorry to be so late in responding! It's a downtown restaurant with little parking for cars on busy days. Parking for an rv, it isn't something I've seen available down town Columbia. I'm sorry!
