Great view, good food, excellent service

My family ate here last week, as it was recommended by several friends of my father. Our server was incredibly friendly and checked on us multiple times. We got the fried squash basket for an appetizer and thoroughly enjoyed it! My son ordered calamari as his entree (on the appetizer menu) and it... read more

Stopped in for an early lunch and wished we had kept going down the road. After reading a number of favorable reviews, we were very disappointed with the shrimp and oyster burgers that we ordered. The best part of our dining experience was the overall decorations and cleanliness of the restaurant. Service was also just OK. Oh yes, did I... More

I am so sorry that your visit with us was not a favorable one. Did you let someone know that you were disappointed in your sandwiches? Did your server realize that you were unhappy? I don't know what happened but I do hope that you will try us again. Gratefully, Inlet View More

Went there for our 48th Anniversary. Ordered fried oysters and shrimp due to limited menu items. Asked if I could switch my baked potato for salad, said yes but I would be charged for salad. Brought my food and it was dripping in grease. Told the waitress that I could not eat the food because of the grease and changed... More

Happy belated anniversary! I'm not sure how to answer all of your concerns. Our menu has a least 70 items on it, 7 sides and 11 choices of seafood. I don't understand the problem with the limited menu items. I wish that if you were having that many problems that you would have asked to speak to a manager. I... More

We have been coming here for years and the only thing that is keeping them going is the view. It is beautiful, although the service is extremely slow & getting your food is even slower!!! Plan on 2 hours during peak times.

We are very lucky to have such a beautiful view. During the peak season, you are right it does take longer to seat and serve our customers. I apologize to you for your inconvenience for the number of people that we serve during peak times but we have been very fortunate to have had the business that we have had.... More

We stayed in Holden Beach but decided after visiting North Myrtle that we wanted to try a local restaurant for some food and drinks. Shallotte was the closest town, so we hopped on TripAdvisor and the Inlet View peaked our curiosity. When we turned off the main road and began down a windy two-lane residential drive that had me questioning... More

So glad that you found and tried us. When someone asks how people find this place, I often say that people coming here know exactly where they are going or they are lost. I'm so happy that you enjoyed the live music, the laid back atmosphere and that the bartenders were helpful. I'm sorry that you didn't like our lobster... More

Came here for our anniversary and had a great time. The inside was packed because a storm was coming through but we were seated right away. Got free hush puppies which were really good for "the wait" but our food came out quickly. Had the crab cake dinner and being from Maryland they were pretty good. Husband had the grouper... More

Happy belated anniversary! Yes we always like to joke around with the people from Maryland when it comes to crabs. Thank you for the compliments especially about our crab cakes.

The seafood we ordered was good and atmosphere was ok. It's on the water so that's a plus. The parking lot isn't paved so walking to and from the car after a rain storm you must dodge large puddles. Not very fancy but good.

Tim M, Manager at Inlet View Bar and Grill, responded to this review

You came on a very stormy night which did leave water everywhere. During peak times our paved parking lot will not hold all of our customer's cars. So people park wherever they can. We are glad that you enjoyed the food and that the restaurant being on the water was a plus. Hope that you will come again. Gratefully, Inlet... More

We are glad that you found us and enjoyed our food and your server, Danielle. The hush puppies are from a family recipe. For boaters, we are working on more boat docks. We can't take credit for the view. Thank you for your comments and we look forward to serving you again. Gratefully, Inlet View. More
