Every trip we make to Myrtle Beach/Little River must include an evening at Crab Catchers! The seafood is definitely fresh and plentiful. Red Snapper was the fish of the day Monday and was very much enjoyed by my husband and father-in-law. I'm a fan of the crab cakes. We also had fried shrimp that was delicious - and of course...

We vacation in Myrtle beach and have been here 2 times. We don't like the all you can eat food factories in Myrtle and ventured up to Little River one year on a search for a good local seafood restaurant. This place is a great local spot with great Carolina (thin batter) fried seafood. I asked the waitress "what is... More

We had a party of 11 and everyone was happy with their meals. Fish sandwiches and tacos were both great. Also they have great fries and hush puppies. Yum!

We had the buffalo shrimp (the best I've ever had!!!) for an appetizer and my husband got the tuna which he rated as EXCELLENT. I had the deviled crab which was very good. My son had a half pound of crab legs. We loved the food and the handmade fries were excellent as well. The waterfront views were great and... More

We ended up at Crab Catchers and it was excellent. The food was fabulous and the service was as well !!!! Very happy we were turned away from Captain Jewls because it was by far the best meal we had on vacation.

Great place to be able to enjoy sitting on the deck over looking the ICW. Had the Seafood plater that was recommended by the waiter. It came out hot and fresh. He also recommended the fried corn which was spot on! Great place to have lunch or dinner.

Not sure what more to say about this other than if you love fresh seafood you have to eat here. I don't eat crab unless it's from Crab Catchers. The seafood is so simple but so delicious. The staff are always cheerful and always happy to see you. It was a rainy night on and off when we went this... More

The inside is small but when the weather is good there is plenty room for outdoor seating. Good food, I had a pound of steamed shrimp and they were big and plenty to eat as a meal. The fried oysters were also delicious. Nice place to go with kids bc it's not too fancy and its on the water.

Little River dock and marina is such a charming authentic slice of South Carolina with several small one-of-a-kind establishments. For lunch we chose Crab Catchers and were not disappointed.. The she-crab soup was exquisite, truly top-notch. The lightly breaded shrimp were tasty and perfectly done.. Other dishes looked just as appetizing. We will be back.. We were there mid-afternoon after... More
