Great seafood fresh off the boat!

This was a yummy little place to stop at! There was a guy named "Doc" giving people rides to the restaurant in his golf cart. That made out day!!! Anyhow, the food was so yummy! I've never had fresh off the boat shrimp, it was so good!

We visited with friends who really love this place. The food options for our diet requirements were limited to side dishes and were not very good. We ate at the bar on the deck by the river - great location. Service was excellent.

I have never felt so taken advantage of as I did at this restaurant. I ordered a grouper sandwich for lunch. The grouper was very good I will have to say but not $21.00 good. I ordered sweet tea, grouper sandwich, which was served on a hamburger bun, and upgraded to french fries instead of their homemade chips. When I... More

We went to this restaurant for lunch and for dinner during a recent visit to North Myrtle Beach and both meals were great. We love grouper, and theirs is off the boat fresh. The key lime pie is hands down the BEST I have ever had.

I ended up here by accident but will always come back when in Little River. The staff was great, the food was really delicious and the deck was a nice surprise. The menu is full of scrumptious choices and they had 4 different all-you-can-eat choices. I had the deep-fried corn on the cob (don't you dare miss it) and then... More

We have gone to Crab Catchers since they opened. I know sometimes you have to wait when they are busy. But let me tell you, you really have to wait when the waitress forgets to put your order in and then ignores you for a half an hour. I remember the chicken wings being good. This time they actually took... More

The location is great. The stinky, noisy casino boat next door will gag the diners sitting outside trying to enjoy the sunset. This no frills joint serves good basic seafood fare but suffers from a noise and odor problem also from the kitchen yelling the waitresses names to pick up the orders.
