On a Sunday afternoon during SOS, Fat Harold's holds an auction to benefit Camp Kemo...there was a good turnout today and the spirit of generosity was evident in the bidding...all for a very good cause!! Several local performers came by to sing a song or two, the bar was open and the grill serving delicious bologna sandwiches!!

Hey Guys, so I've been to Harolds once, and when I go to NMB with family this summer, i'd like to know: 1. How old do you have to be to get in there? My sister in law has kids, aged 10-16. 2. What kind of music do they generally play there? (There was some event happening last year so... More

Smelled of stale beer and cigarettes. They were offering a dance class while I was there which was basically line dancing. Just not my cup of tea.

It was an older crowd but great fun. It was great watching all the shag dancers and talking to everyone about the dancing. The staff was friendly and the bartenders were very quick. It was nice not to have to pay a cover as well!

We went on a weekday night when the place was practically deserted, most unusual apparently. But that meant we met some of the regulars and got to understand a bit of this separate world. It was the friendliest place and the dancers were alight with love of the Carolina Shag, and they were happy to provide lessons and demos. It... More

Conveniently located in N. Myrtle w/ plenty of parking. The music is great! The dance floor is a really nice size and the beach music is to die for! If you don't shag dance, you'll want to learn when you visit Fat Harold's Beach Club. I love this place!

Everytime I go to Fat Harold's I always enjoy my time there. The bartenders are great and always remember you whenever you go back! The best DJ there is Jason Justice because he plays such a great variety of new and old music, not just the top 40 over and over again like most of the other DJ's. I would... More

May 22nd was our second time at Fat Harold's in two years - both times were so much fun! Jeppy gives free shag lessons at 7pm on Tuesdays and that was the plan for the night. Loved doing this last May and was excited to do it again. We decided to have supper at the grill there - Shawn did... More
