My first time at Landolfi's in Pawleys Island was really exciting.
Sat outside, but it's not really outside. Covered deck style, with brick outlay (adjustable screen enclosure to keep bugs out) and even a fireplace for those chilly nights.
The most exciting feature I enjoyed was the ringside seat to the entry/exit way for the back parking lot.
Talk about your mad rush. From 5 p.m. until, droves of vehicles were coming to the back lot to acquire a parking space for the evening. Very few people were leaving.
It really was like people were arriving late for school or work, however, they seemed to be super excited to be away from that and arriving here for their reward!
And the take-out business is booming. This place must be good if people bypass certain spots that provide easy take-out to fight for a parking spot just to pick up an order.
With that being said, let's get to the reason I visited... the food.
The hoagies and subs are fresh and flavorful. Portion size is on point.
The pizzas, oh my gosh, are so good. You'd think they would have originated the dish itself. Several unique pizza offerings are available and you can build your own.
Get here early. I mean it. The food is definitely worth its weight in gold.
Look above. That dish is so inviting. The color, texture of food and portion size is superb.
And it was such a rewarding entree. The Seafood Pasta (Penne Pasta with Shrimp, Scallops, Lobster & Crab, Sauteed Spinach in a Seafood Cream Sauce) was exactly what I craved on an evening when I just wanted to unwind and enjoy family time.
The pasta was cooked just right. Shrimp were robust, flavorful and plentiful. Lobster, scallops and crab were also in the dish. You could not go wrong with this special.
My wife had the Grilled Seafood Risotto above (Flounder, Shrimp and Scallops over a bed of Mushroom Risotto) and she was in heaven. Definitely would order again. The fish was cooked to perfection, shrimp were plump and tasty. Scallops melted in your mouth.
We had a tableside view of the marina. The service was spot on.
Could not ask for a better evening at Chacon's of Georgetown.
