Went to Murrel's Inlet on vacation for the sole purpose of having dinner. Some of the locals raved about the food there. All of the restaurants had an hour plus wait except this one and now we know why. Overpriced bar food, slow service, small portions, and in a party size of ten, nobody had a meal that they thought...

The food is average and the service is OK. IMO, the prices are more than a bit high for food served in "baskets." This is a place to go whenever the wait for almost anyplace else on the Inlet is more than 30 minutes.

This is one of the best, most low keyed places to eat in Murrell's Inlet. The service is great, and so is the music and view. The food is amazing and keeps getting better each year! I highly recommend this place!

worst food we've ever had! crabcakes were burned (blackened and crispy) TWICE .....no third chance. my husband's trio platter was soggy and tasted like they'd put the food in a blender before battering. will NEVER go back

We enjoyed having a laid back meal at Creek Ratz. The service was fast and we enjoyed relaxing by the water. The food is good but I do wish they offered bake potatoes instead of fries with everything and New England Clam Chowder. The crab cake sandwich I go was very tasty. Like I said the restaurant is very laid... More

Good appetizers, but are all fried. The grilled fish tacos were good. Fries were rubbery almost as if they were reheated or just under a lamp waiting for the rest of the food. The fried fish still had the skin left on it, which is just lazy... Everything was mediocre. Wouldn't come back, there are too many other amazing options... More

My wife and I visit every time we travel to SC from PA. We love the atmosphere and the food. Friendly staff and fried pickles you just can't get in the North!

The crab legs and peel and eat shrimp were the best! Their hushpuppies were really good too! Also the pirates punch and the Cîroc punch were off the chain good! The service was so great! We had cupcakes and they offered to put them in their fridge so they wouldn't melt! They were always making sure our drinks were full... More

Creek Ratz seems to be more of a bar than restaurant. Food was acceptable but a majority of those there were in lawn chairs awaiting the live music. Very fun atmosphere and well worth a visit but the food isn't the memorable part of the evening.

I like eating on the outside deck, by the marsh. Food is good. Price is reasonable. Atmosphere depends on what band is playing, or hopefully not playing. Overall, it is a neat little restaurant to get some food choices you do not typically find at other places.
