The Ship’s Pub is as neat and tidy as its name, with large glass windows, nautical decorations and glossy tables. It is located in the former Sam’s Corner on U.S. 17 in Pawleys Island.

Although it’s only been open a month, customers are quick to tell you their favorite menu items and how they love the new business.

The menu items include something a “little different,” including lobster rolls and lobster bisque.

The Ship’s Pub features wings dipped in your choice of sauce. The wing flavors range from garlic parmesan to lemon pepper, moonshine and mango habanero.

The restaurant also offers calamari, pretzels served with homemade cheese sauce and caprese, which is fresh mozzarella, sliced tomato and basil drizzled with a balsamic glaze.

Nachos, chicken tenders, crab cakes, fried pickles and pimento cheese dip are some of the other appetizers offered at the Ship’s Pub.

Salads include the buffalo chicken salad, cobb salad, chef salad and Caesar salad.

The happy hour at the Ship’s Pub stretches from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m., Monday through Saturday.

Happy hour specials give thirsty customers a chance to buy $2.50 domestic bottles and draft, $4 house wines and $4 well drinks.

Customers can also chow on a selection of half-priced appetizers from 4 to 7 p.m., if they dine at the bar. The appetizer list always includes the regular favorites, but sometimes such items as fried clams and fried macaroni and cheese are added.

Happy hour beer offerings include Miller Lite, Blue Moon and Yuengling.

The Ship’s Pub also stocks SweetWater 420s, Westbrook, New South and Hi-Wires.

The restaurant also has a great brand of house wine and stocks tequila to fit every taste.

Cocktails include the Scurvy Punch, Cinnamon Toast Martini, White Grape Martini, Cucumber Martini and Pineapple Express.


The Ship’s Pub can handle diners who want to gather for a special event, such as an office party or social club gathering.

The parking is generous in the front and also stretches to include another parking lot in the back.

The business is now in its winter hours, which is 11 a.m. to 10 p.m., Monday through Friday. The restaurant is open from noon to 10 p.m. on Saturdays. Summer hours are 11 a.m. to 11 p.m., Monday through Saturday.

The Ship’s Pub is closed on Sundays.
