Frank’s Outback

If you go to Pawley’s Island, don’t miss this wonderful and unique dining experience. Frank’s opened in the 1930’s as Marlow’s Supermarket and was a favorite local spot for making phone calls (it was the only phone in Pawley’s at the time), buying groceries and catching up on gossip. In the 1970’s Salters McClary, a high school student, worked summers for Frank Marlow. After graduating from college and returning to Pawley’s Island, Salters approached Marlow (who was retiring) about leasing the building and opening a restaurant. In 1988 Salters and Elizabeth McClary opened a restaurant and named it Frank’s after Mr. Frank Marlow. Today Frank’s is a beloved establishment among the locals and one of the best restaurants in the Carolinas.  Continue reading
