THE LOCALE | BisQit
THE LOWDOWN | Looking for a spot to grab a burger and beer? BisQit might just be the place for you. That's where we went for happy hour this week.
BisQit is tucked away at the Hammock Shops in Pawleys Island. The historical building, which used to house Roz’s Rice Mill Café, is from the mid-1800s and originally was on a rice plantation. Now nestled towards the back of the roadside shops, it provides a laid-back locale for locals as well as snowbirds this time of year.
BisQit is like a gastropub-meets-soda-fountain-shop. On the wall you'll see chalkboards listing meats and cheeses, burgers and floats and shakes. On shelves behind the bar you'll see a mix of wine and liquor bottles and chocolate and caramel syrup bottles. You'll even spot old fashioned malt machines behind the bar making you want to order an old fashioned milkshake. Better yet, you can get an alcoholic shake. From Bananas Foster with rum, vanilla ice cream, bananas and caramel to an Aztec Mocha with tequila, ice cream, coffee and chocolate syrup, you can enjoy shakes that are spiked to the max.
Not only that, BisQit offers beer cocktails, too. In addition to craft beers you can snag drinks such as the "Rye Not?" containing New South White Ale, Rittenhouse rye, ginger syrup, lemon and orange.
Happy hour runs from 4 to 7 p.m. daily. Drink deals include $3 draft beers, $2.50 domestic bottles beer, $3 import beer and $4 liquors. Food specials include $3 Belgian fries, $4 onion rings and $5 chicken wings, meat and cheese or fondue.
