Restaurant details
Reviewed 17 May 2018

Tried to visit Austins Cabana on a Monday CLOSED. Sort of odd that it is a hotel restaurant but closed. Anyway we tried 2 nights later on a Wednesday, First, what a location, Right on the beach, with the breeze of the ocean it can't be beat. Sat out on the patio. They were a little slow on the first wave of service. Almost seemed overwhelmed that they were busy. After all it is May and 80 degrees. People are coming to the beach. After we got our round of drinks we ordered the chips with blue cheese and bacon, Outstanding, the chips are fresh cut, fried and warm, topped with blue cheese and bacon. What could be better. I know its not the healthiest but it is the beach. We then got the grouper basket with fries and peach slaw to share. Well done items cooked nicely, A little high on price $20. for 3 pieces of grouper, fries and some slaw. But you are also staring at the ocean waves 50 yards away.
I hope they can get thier service into gear because with the right wait staff hustling this place would get 5 stars. I know its early in the seaon but Memorial Day is right around the corner. Be ready. We will definetly be back since the view and location is 5 star

Had eaten at Austin’s upstairs Wednesday night... wanted a casual, comfortable place for good food and waterfront views AND did not want to clean up first! Good waitstaff... Good grouper... HOT FRENCH FRIES! YAY!

Not much is better than fine food with a stunning ocean view. And everyone knows food tastes better outside. :) I was eager to visit the Litchfield Inn since learning of it a few years ago. It did not disappoint. After visiting Huntington Beach State Park, we made our way to Cabana Café for lunch. The patio restaurant was nearly full but we were seated with an unobstructed view of the ocean. My dining companion chose the grouper appetizer for us to share (we actually ordered a second portion, it was so good), and also later chose the blue crab.

We started with the bacon and bleu cheese chips, that are served with what seemed to be bleu cheese dressing from scratch. The blue crab was served on a bed of delicious succotash. This isn't your momma's succotash. This stuff is amazing! Rave-worthy.

James was our waiter and although my companion gave him some good-natured ribbing, he was a great about it all and about serving us an excellent meal.

Many great memories and a stunning view!

But they do make themselves distinct by adding peach chunks to the slaw. That was good. But we were disappointed in the friend shrimp....won't do that again.

When in Pawley's seek out the Austin' s Cabana Café for beachfront enjoyment. The cole slaw has a touch of peach in it, the grouper is done to perfection, (don't forget the malt vinegar sprinkled on top) Inside and outside seating nearby the pool or overlooking the ocean, the prices are reasonable, the service has always been prompt and cheery. There is fine dining upstairs too in the evenings. Your only challenge might be that parking is tight, but plentiful across the street. What am I doing? now all of you will go to Austins and I'll have to wait in line, something I've never experienced in the years we've been to Pawley's
