Moe’s Original Bar B Que Expanding Location in Pawleys Island, SC

After great demand for additional space in its 2500 square foot restaurant, Moe’s Original Bar B Que has started an addition. The Getaway will be a new 1,500 square foot building with additional outdoor seating on the patio, a bar, and new stage. Parking option will increase as well. Set to be completed by Memorial Weekend, the project was designed by Tych & Walker Architects, being built by Pinnacle Construction and supported by G3 Engineering.

“We carefully developed a lay out that can showcase live music as well as work to feature oyster roasts, crawfish boils and private parties,” said Moe’s Original Bar B Que owner Meg Lonon. “The Getaway will make the entertainment space separate from the restaurant as well as add an office, more storage and freezer to assist with our needs.”

Recognized with many awards, Moe’s Original Bar B Que has been named one of the Top 10 Rib Joints in the U.S. by Relish and Top 10 BBQ Chains in America by USA Today and The Daily Meal. Years after learning to fire roast meats in Tuscaloosa, Alabama, Mike Fernandez, Ben Gilbert and Jeff Kennedy discovered a shared passion for BBQ and founded Moe’s Original Bar B Que in Vail, Colorado in 2001. Moe’s Original Bar B Que has 37 other locations in AL, CA, CO, FL, GA, ME, NC, OH, SC and TN. Located on the thoroughfare of Highway 17, the popular restaurant features a Southern soul food revival with everything prepared fresh daily.
