Good Food

Crab Catchers has great food, but the atmosphere is something to be desired. You most certainly want outside seating because inside is nothing but a run down bar. With that being said we have been three times and enjoyed our meal outside on the waterway each time.

Location really is as good as it gets for waterway dining, though they wasted no money on decor - plastic tables & chairs, plastic cups, typical 'fried seafood' southern fish house. I was really disturbed at the price of a seafood platter that included oysters and scallops coming out to about $48. Say whaaaaaat?? For $48 you can go down... More

If you love fresh seafood you absolutely must eat here. Simple and very welcoming nothing flashy about this place, just pure goodness and hospitality. Can't wait to return.

First time here, checked out the daily specials. They had She-crab scoop, Seafood Gumbo and a few other items. I went with the Seafood Gumbo and it was excellent. On the outside deck there was a breeze, so the sand flies that are talked about in other reviews was not an issue for me. If you are in the area,... More

Awesome place to sit outside on the Intercostal and watch the boats go by. Food is great (especially the blue crab bites) and have always had good service. We are local and besides going there ourselves, bring visitors for a 'taste' of the area. You won't be disappointed.

First time there with a friend...and the last time too! Sat out on the deck and was bitten by sand fleas. Had to request bug spray. Had heard so much about the bloody marys...had better in my own kitchen. Had to request celery for the drink and the food was awful. Mini crab cakes were like hush puppies with a... More

We did a fishing charter with North Myrtle Beach Fishing Charters and caught some flounder. They clean them for use and we had no way to cook it. Captain Keith told us to take it to Crab Catchers and they would cook it for us. I have to say it was the best meal I had while in Myrtle Beach.... More

This place is a dive! and that along makes it worth the drive. The food and atmosphere can't be beat. Try the Blue Crab bits, outstanding! As are the shrimp tacos and Haddock. Next time we are in MB we will go back.

If you want King Crab legs this is the place. A bit of ride from Myrtle Beach but worth the trip. From the outside not much to look at but the service was wonderful and the "All You Can Eat" crab legs for lunch was delicious. We weren't rushed and took our time to enjoy every morsel. You won't be... More
