While vacationing at Ocean Isle Beach, NC, my wife and I decided to eat lunch at a spot in Little River, SC where her parents had taken her when she was young. Captain Juel's location and surroundings reminded me of places we had visited in Pawley's Island. There are tall pines and Live Oak trees with Spanish Moss all over... More

This is the second time we've eaten at Captain Juel's Hurricane in Little River, SC. What made the place special? The grouper bites appetizer and coconut shrimp. On both visits the food was the good fried seafood you expect on the coast. Good value. Good food. Good waterfront view.

Excellent food. Portions are too small. I ordered fish and grits and was amazed at the small portion of grits that came with the meal. Grits were not hot either. Come on. You can afford more grits. Probably one cup of grits was served. Not enough to eat with 2 pieces of fish. Service was excellent.

Great little place on the river. The food was excellent -- I have their famous seafood stew. We came between lunch and dinner so the place was quiet and we received good attentive service. If you are looking for an alternative to the main strip dining options, consider driving out a little further for an authentic fishing town eating spot.

If you love fresh sea food this is the place to be. The mahi mahi fish tacos were out of this world..not to mention the strawberry daquari. Oh how could I forget the sushi fresh and delicious. There isnt a bad seat in the house..oh and the hummingbird cake is amazing. ..if you like fresh homemade food..this is the place.... More

We have been going to Captain Juel's for over thirty years - in fact we wrote a glowing review of it in 2011 - but after eating there this past weekend, we have changed our minds. As well as additional neon signage outside, the restaurant added a sushi bar over the winter, which we guess some people appreciate, but we... More

Si sorry to hear of your bad experience with us . Would love to know the date you came, and the name of your server that evening, our dishes should always be served with your choice side. And as for the preparation of your shrimp I sincerely apologies. Would greatly appreciated another try and please asked for Heidi. More

We came into the restaurant to purchase tickets for the SeaScreamer dolphin cruise. And we went there to eat right after the cruise since the kids and us were kind of hungry by that point. Considering the location of the restaurant right next to all of the activities we expected the prices to be sky high, yet they were not.... More

We have been going here for more than 30 years and it just doesn't quite seem the same. It has been recently refreshed inside however. On this visit the hush puppies were crisp and yummy. My stuffed shrimp that the menu describes as "extra plump" were medium at best and the crab in the stuffing was sparse. The homemade fries... More

This waterfront restaurant has indoor and outdoor dining on a dock that services boat cruises and jet ski activities. There's plenty to chose from on the menu. Most fish is fried. We started with conch fritters. The breading was a little doughy and the conch got a bit lost in it. It was served with a spicy mayo. I had... More

So glad we stumbled upon this restaurant. The food was delicious! We had great service. It is a little pricey. Will definitely return when we're in the area again.
