Island Bar & Grill is a full-service restaurant and bar that is located in the Village Shops in the heart of Pawleys Island, SC. We are just seconds from the Hammock Shops and have been here since 2007.

You’ll feel right at home at IBG Pawleys, with our friendly staff and outstanding food! Come enjoy our outdoor patio where we host live bands throughout the year and most major sports packages shown on the outdoor TV’s. Watch your favorite sports teams in our main dining room and in our upstairs sports bar on one of our 30 TVs.

Each and every guest that walks into our establishment is considered family, and our intention is to provide the best, most friendly service possible. Our team believes that whether you are a local or just visiting our great area, you deserve nothing but the best.

IBG Pawleys is pleased to announce that we’ve completed our renovations and look forward to welcoming you! The upstairs sports bar is now The 19th Hole at IBG.

Be sure to follow us on Instagram, Twitter and Facebook for all the latest events and specials! Links on the top right of the screen. We’d love for you to tag us on social media using #IBGPawleys and #The19thHoleAtIBG if you’re visiting.

Our bands are in full swing, 5 nights a week through the summer, and we have Karaoke moving to Monday nights through the summer with #DJJessieJames.

We’re always happy to entertain groups, so please let us know if you’ll be in the area and how we can help you!

Please come in and visit us soon; we think you'll be glad that you did.
