Harvey’s Deli & Tavern
108 West Freemont Street
On our way home from Sunset Beach, we drove through a couple small towns trying to find somewhere good for dinner. Finally we hit paydirt in Burgaw. Burgaw is the county seat of Pender County and had a population of just a bit over 3,300 as of the 2000 census. The homes we saw were small but very well maintained, and the main street is adorable.
We wandered into Harvey’s, which is a cute local pub. They have a decent beer selection, and a good variety of the sort of food you want if you’re eating at a local pub. We had fried cheesesticks to start and then burgers. It was all good even though it came out a bit slowly. No wonder! We think there were just 2 people working the place when we visited. But they were nice, and it wasn’t ridiculously slow. I’d definitely return here if we passed through Burgaw again.
