Started off with a bowl of hush puppies. A little on the sweet side but we managed to eat all of them. Appetizer of oyster on the half shell. Large and tasty. Ordered crab cake and shrimp and we were surprised the side salad that came with it had actual greens and not iceburg. The crabs cakes my wife and... More

My husband and I are there. We walked over from Litchfield Beach and Golf Resort. They were gluten free knowledge and broiled my scallops, shrimp and flounder in a separate pan. Scallops were cooked to perfection and very tasty. Nice wine selection too!

The Murrells Inlet/Pawleys Island/Litchfield area has a very high standard for seafood. On a recent visit to the area, we researched the market and tried three well regarded restaurants, two in Murrells Inlet and this one. Hanser House, a long time family-owned restaurant on the highway in Pawleys Island, was the hands down best. It is located very conveniently, and... More

The food was not particularly good. My shrimp and grits had way too much cheese on it and the crab cakes were not made with lump meat. Not great. The waitress always seemed to be in a hurry even though it wasn't terribly busy when we were there.

Anytime we are in the area, we go to Hanser House to eat. The food is good home-cooking and calabash style seafood. The hushpuppies are outstanding!

My wife and I heard that HH had softshell crabs. We like them cleaned and pan-sauteed. They were large (2) with sides. They were perfect.

We found Hanser House during a recent trip to Pawley's Island. The service and atmosphere could not be better. We ordered from the petite menu and were served a gracious plenty. We will drive past Murrell's Inlet to eat here again.

My family has known Miss Nita since before she was Granny! Her commitment to a quality restaurant is obvious in the menu and the consistent quality of the food. Did I mention the She Crab Soup ! Miss Nita is one of the hardest working women I know. I often do takeout meals, and they are always prepared to my... More
