Terrific seafood, great service while dining outdoors on the water

We drove into the overflow parking lot at Crab Catchers and were immediately greeted by a good ol' boy in a golf cart who gave us a ride to the front door along with a discount coupon. That was a great start to a very good meal. The staff was friendly and helpful and gave great service. We dined... read more

This was my 4th time at Crab Catchers. I ordered the fried shrimp platter and it was delicious! Their deep fried corn on the cob is amazing. There is a long wait but is definitely worth it. The wait staff is great.

Crab Catchers use to be my favorite local seafood restaurant when we visit the Myrtle Beach area and I was very excited this trip to go again. We always make it a point to go at least once during our trip. We usually go for lunch but this trip we decided to go for dinner. We were in the mood... More

A co-worker told us about this place several years ago so we always come here at least once or twice while we are on vacation each year. I want to give them a good recommendation to others so they can enjoy it as we do. Their she-crab soup is the best we've ever tasted. The hush puppies are wonderful! We... More

I will never regret eating outside by the water even though it was chillier than the family would have liked during our trip to North Myrtle Beach in April 2015. (Definitely a First World problem.) The seafood was fresh and amazing--and the atmosphere by the waterway was as peaceful and unpretentious as you can get, even though there was a... More

The food is delicious every time we eat here we come every year. The fried corn on the cob is to die for, not to mention it's right on the waterway . Love it!!!

My son, daughter-in-law, my husband, and I decided to give this restaurant a try. The meals were sub-par unfortunately. My daughter-in-law's crab sandwich and corn were burnt to a crisp. My son's and our meals were edible, but certainly not appetizing. What really was difficult was the way the waitresses were treated by their manager. These servers were worked to... More

Today my family and I dined at Crab Catchers. It was a busy day as it was the Blue Crab Festival. Our first sign that this was a poorly run establishment was when it was seat yourself. Poor servers were seating customers, bussing tables, and running food. When we found a table we were advised it would be 30 minutes... More

Unfortunately had overall poor meal last night. Had the crab bites for appetizer and they were good but that was all. I had the soft shell crabs which were not crisp and dripping in oil. Wife had the mahi mahi "blackened" was more like broiled with blackening seasoning. Corn was good.
