Saturday, September 19, 2020, was the first day with a blustery taste of Fall in the air. Although it was overcast, the view at Austin's Cabana Cafe was spectacular.
Located at The Litchfield Inn, it's the sister restaurant to Ocean One. Both meet you as you walk inside the lobby, with Cabana Cafe in front of you and Ocean One to the left.
The Cabana Cafe has outside dining and the staff were practicing social distancing with table separation and wearing masks. Lunch is served 11:30 daily.
We started with cups of the Cabana Clam Chowder and Vegetable Soup. Both were flavored well and a great start to lunch.
Next, we chose two appetizers. The first was the Baja Crispy Fish Tacos (2 served) and the Popcorn Shrimp. We had house-made Mango Cocktail and Cajun Remoulade sauces served with them and they were out of this world. Great flavors.
The tacos were small, but packed a crispy, flavorful punch. The popcorn shrimp were a mouth pleaser. We were eating them one after the other.
And now, it's time to get to the main event. The lunch we looked forward to on the beachfront of Litchfield.
We ordered the Cabana Burger and the Southern Psycho Burger. The latter had pimento cheese, crispy onions, bacon, sriracha aioli, fried egg and pickles. That was a superb burger.
The Cabana Burger is an Angus beef burger on a Brioche roll. A go-to burger. It truly satisfied.
From beginning to end, it was a very pleasurable experience. You can taste the care and thought put in by Executive Chef Bill Austin with each dish.
Take the trip to 1 Norris Drive in Pawleys Island, South Carolina, and treat your taste buds to a great meal.
