Plantation Tours in Georgetown, SC

On March 22 &23, 2013 , just south of Pawleys Island, some of the most beautiful, historic plantation homes and churches in the Georgetown, South Carolina area will be graciously shared with the Episcopal Church Women of Prince George, Winyah Parish, and will be open for ticket holders between 9:30am– 5pm.

The Sixty-Sixth Annual Plantation Tour offers a different group of pre-Revolutionary and antebellum  homes in downtown Georgetown, on area plantations and even some churches each day. Visitors are invited to the Winyah Indigo Society Hall for tea each afternoon. In the Prince George Parish Hall, home baked goods, original framed art from local artists, books from the Georgetown Historical Society, and the church’s award winning cookbook, PLANTATION TOURS AND TASTES, will be available for sale.

Histories and maps showing the routes for the day are provided with tickets.  Hosts and hostess will be on hand to answer questions concerning the houses that are open. Visitors provide their own transportation.  Only cars and vans are allowed on the tours because of the many low-hanging oak limbs and soft roadbeds.  (no buses)

All Visitors are requested to wear low heeled shoes for their own comfort, as well, as for the protection of the old floors and rugs. You are also reminded that no photographs may be taken inside homes.

Restaurant Review – Island Cafe & Deli Pawleys Island

Photo by Becky Billingsly

My in-laws have been raving about Island Cafe & Deli for years.  It is their “go to” place every time they are in the area.  Their prices are reasonable and the menus are varied.  You can order just about anything form Peanut Butter & Jelly to a Filet Mignon or Shrimp & Grits.  Reading some on of the online reviews will tell you that locals in Myrtle Beach, 20 minutes north, enjoy this establishment. too.  Before rambling on……. check out the menus.

REVIEW FROM MYRTLE BEACH RESTAURANT NEWS:  There are a few long-established area restaurants I haven’t yet visited, and when I finally dine at one such as Island Cafe and Deli in Pawleys Island, I have to ask myself, “What took so long?”

And honestly, a friend and I had planned to visit another south strand restaurant on Oct. 19, but when that plan fell through we decided to check out Island Cafe and Deli. Russell Hardee has been the proprietor since 1988.

The building’s decor is much of the charm with quaint murals depicting its kitchen, staff, customers, food and area waterscapes. Out front is a covered outdoor dining area. Inside a bar is to the right, and to the left is a spacious dining room.  Read more…

Restaurant: Get Carried Away in Pawleys Island

Get Carried Away is a concept that Sassy and Brian devised in 2005. And now is the time to make it a reality.

As owners of the Sea View Inn since 2002, their staff has produced some of the best low country cooking in the form of 3 meals each day for their overnight guests. And many non-boarders and locals have also come by to enjoy a meal and take in the view. Crab Divine, Myrtle’s Biscuits, and Seafood Pie have been staples at this Pawleys mainstay.

In 2006, Sassy and Brian launched their product, Palmetto Cheese. It has since become a regional favorite for many food lovers and continues to grow. Since that time, many locals and aspiring cooks have approached the Henrys about how to get their product to market. While the Henrys can offer some direction and counsel, they can now offer that place where entrepreneurs and food lovers can have an outlet for their passions. One of those is Onion Made Goodness (OMG). It is the creation of local Laura Tiller and it is good stuff! And how about Dana Stokes cheese straws? It is a southern favorite and they are delicious!

They also know that people love seafood. Particularly the “Low Country Boil”. It is an area favorite and the perfect treat to share with the family or group of friends. Each and every summer, Sea View Inn has hosted low country boils for its guests since 2003. Now they want to bring this local favorite to other vacationers and locals. They prepare it hot and ready and you simply serve it at home, at the beach, on the back porch, or on the boat. And pick up a few appetizers to round it out: Vidalia Onion Dip, Palmetto Cheese and Crab Dip, Artichoke Dip, and many others. Easy peazy.
