The Mayor's House, 13089 Ocean Highway (Pawleys Island): 8 January 2011   4 comments

Posted at 12:09 am in Uncategorized

The Mayor's House was for many years at the South Litchfield Beach causeway and stoplight, across from Latte Litchfield and a bit north of The McKenzie Beach Motel. I would, in fact, give the location as "Litchfield" rather than "Pawleys Island", but the later designation is creeping steadily northward.

I always had the impression that The Mayor's House was a) "Too Fancy" and b) "Too Seafood" for me (what with the big pink shrimp and the Fried Lobster come-on), so I never got around to eating there despite liking the pier-like aspect of being built over a pond.

Looking for the address of the place did turn up an online review site which was decidedly... mixed. It did confirm my impression that it was probably too rich for my blood. I do wonder what happened to the shrimp though.

  1. I ate there one time as a kid (I'm guessing between 1990-1992) and I remember it being always packed. Our table was near one of the windows b/c I could see out over the "pond" (which I think had a fountain in it back then and maybe lights, I think it was nicer looking back then). Never ate there again but it must have been there at least 25 years, I'm curious as to when it opened....

  2. I was born and raised in PI and remember the building that became the Mayors House was an italian restaurant called PJ's I believe. This would have been 1993 when i was a sophmore in high school. I lived about a mile south of there off of 17 behind the Litchfield Restaurant and Pawleys Island Lumber. In the 80's and 90's there was a convenience store called the Pantry next to the building which has been replaced by a small retail complex. I also worked across the intersection at a service station called Buck and Carlos while in high school which has since been replaced by a beachwear store. Good times!!!!

  3. Buck & Carlos moved to across the South Causeway as a garage. Then I think Buck left and it's just Carlos on the sign now.

  4. Buck left the business due to illness and Carlos his step son runs it now as Carlos Complete Car Care. It is now next to what used to be the 3 Way service station at the old entrance to Hagley Estates which was moved furthur south down Hwy 17 in the early 2000's. I worked at Mason Tire and Auto (Good Year) for many years after it opened in 1998 which is maybe a half mile north of Carlos on 17.
