Interesting way of cooking

Everything seemed to be deep fried including corn on the cob which was delicious. Nice scenery of the Atlantic Intracoastal Waterway

Crab Catchers had been a yearly favorite of our family, but our most recent trip left us quite disappointed. The apps and meals came out haphazardly-no big deal since we're on vacation but 1 year ago they were spot on with regard to food delivery. I ordered the grouper dinner which was really tasty but not worth $27 for 2... More

This has been one of my "go to" places every visit to Myrtle Beach. Today was no exception. However, it was a BIG disappointment. The fresh grouper had no taste, the breading was bland and boring and the fish was only partially coated. This hasn't been the case before, but today was very disappointing. The hush puppies were bad as... More

We went there this evening per the recommendation of a local. Some of the low lights of our meal this evening: 1. Slow service for removing plates, garbage etc on the table 2. Very greasy food down to french fries sitting in puddles of grease. 3. My daughters hot dog was deep fried, seriously, who deep fries a child's hot... More

We vacation in Myrtle Beach every summer and always make the trip to Crab Catchers in Little River with a view of the Intercostal. The crab legs with old bay seasoning are the best around.

The only real thing going for this restaurant is the location. They have a nice deck overlooking the waterway and a decent bar with a few beer on tap. But when it comes to food I would say you can do better in Myrtle Beach/Little River. The oysters were nothing short of frozen swamp mush. I asked where they were... More

If you are in or near Myrtle Beach, take the easy drive to this place. It has amazing quality food and it is a small business. Everything is homemade and very good. The seafood is best and I always get fried mac n cheese bites-great for kids who don't have seafood as part of their pallet yet. There are also... More

Nothing special just good food and good service. Happy hour menu is okay but limited. Good location on the waterway.

We visit Crab Catchers on our last day of our vacation. It was recommended to us by one of our family members who is local to the area. We had a group of 8 and called to make sure they could accommodate us. We were told to get there before 6:30 or we would be waiting a while. The location... More

We went last night for dinner and really enjoyed our visit! Small and busy but not a long wait. We ordered oysters, crab legs, shrimp and crab cakes. Everything was prepared perfectly! The view was spectacular.
