This is fabulous place to spend an hour or so on a rainy afternoon. Everything is here. Not trashy stuff. Some stuff is very touristy but overall there is something for everyone here. The parking lot needs work and should be paved. The rocking chairs on the big porch are memorable for guys as their spouses and friends shop inside.

We are so happy that you enjoyed your visit to the Lazy Gator and appreciated all the unique qualities that we offer. Our rocking chairs ARE super popular! Unfortunately due to environmental issues in this watershed area of Murrells Inlet, we are unable to pave our parking lot. If we could, we would :) Thank you for taking the time... More

This is a great gift shop. It even has a pond with turtles and lots of giant frogs to entertain kids and husbands while you shop! They have cute tee shirts, ice cream and fudge, Tervis Tumblers, Vera Bradley, Switch Flops and even a Christmas section. You will not be disappointed!

Whether it's jewelry, beach knick knacks, Vera Bradley, Christmas decorations, fudge, or t-shirts chances are they have something you will want. Don't forget to pick up their Murrells Inlet t-shirt while you're there. Also... More

When we walked in the gal at the front register offered us free bottled water as we shopped. I've been visiting in the Myrtle area and many shops for 14 years and can't recall a time when a retail shop offer such a simple gesture of southern hospitality. We purchased a couple long shelve t-shirts and were using their $5... More

I believe the only good shopping in Marsh Walk area.This is a big shop right across the street from all the restaurants. Large choice of items, sure to find something for everyone on your list. The "men" can sit on the porch & watch the world go by as the "shoppers" do their thing. Prices reasonable. Recommend.

We stopped by the Lazy Gator while driving through Murrells Inlet. We were amazed at the selection of unique gifts and touristy products. This is a big store.

First if all if I could rate this with nothing I would, but I had to at least pick a 1. It doesn't even deserve that. While at my visit at lazy gator, I noticed all around the store there was bugs.

I often shop at the Lazy Gator for gift items for family and friends, especially when I want something reflective of the grand strand. I shop for myself as well and the Lazy Gator holds special shopping events throughout the year (trunk shows and tastings). The staff is friendly an helpful and they have a good selection of merchandise.
