Tonight was the first night of me donning a "Georgetown Foodland" t-shirt at a local restaurant. What better place to do so than Quigley's Pint & Plate.
Located at 257 Willbrook Blvd. in Pawleys Island, Quigley's Pint & Plate is known for being the only brewery in the area. Eight beers are always on tap at Quigley’s and fresh beer is available "to-go" in half-gallon growlers.
Chef and Co-Owner Josh Quigley bounces between here and BisQit, another popular restaurant in Pawleys Island, known for their uniquely created burgers and milkshakes. Co-Owner Billy Davis can be found in his place, making sure all the details are perfectly met. Billy actually sat us this evening!
Josh is a cool, laid back dude and I really enjoy seeing him when I get the chance. He is passionate about the food, restaurants, industry and the community he lives in.
And this dinner would be no different in regards to presentation and taste.
The Black-Eyed Pea Hummus is a must when starting out. The locals crave this. It's flavorful - compared to what hummus usually tastes like - and the grilled pita bread its served with compliments the offering.
The Southern Brewers Chili! Wow. Just a cup of this lucious, comforting dish will have you asking for a gallon of it. The brown ale really makes a difference in a positive way.
And who doesn't love cheese that's flashed until it's crispy cheese? The Bacon Cheese Fries also oh so good!
Entrees were the specials offered. The All American Burger - with chili - was such a great choice. You'll see in the photos how massive it was. Just enough to not outdo those bisQit burgers! Flavored well and cooked to order. The Grouper with a scallop on top and served with a vegetable succotash was perfect. Fish wasn't dry and it was cooked just right. Sauce made it sparkle like the 4th of July. The entrees were like experiencing a firework show all over again, this time your tastebuds were the guests of honor.
Dessert was, well, pluff mud. No, not the actually stuff, but a Pluff Mud Pie with a coffee mousse. It was literally the best way to top off an evening. Light and sweet, but not overly sweet. Hint of coffee flavor where the chocolate sauce blended for a great taste.
Enjoy the photos as much as I enjoyed the food.
And, by all means, eat at Quigley's Pint & Plate!
