Warm welcoming fire

A good place for lunch and on this cold January day it was even better to find a warm fire when we arrived. The restaurant offers not only good food but a great view of the marsh. The oyster Po Boy and the fish sandwiches were good and our friends really liked the oyster and shrimp baskets.

My husband and I were returning from Charleston yesterday and wanted to stop at Dave's Dockside in Murrells Inlet, SC for an early dinner. They weren't open yet so we went to Creek Ratz next door. We have eaten here before so it wasn't a big deal. This visit was unlike any other one. The food was extremely greasy and... More

Wonderful place to relax and enjoy the day or the sunset. Music is always great. Food is casual and family friendly.

After all the hype, while on vacation we thought we would try Creek Ratz, after waiting 40 minutes, it was just OK, and here's why.. While waiting for our seats, we went to the bar, the bartender seemed very angry, not friendly at all. Once seated, the food was good, but seem very small portions for the money, except for... More

First thing we noticed after sitting down and ordering drinks was the weird smell of the place. Seemed like it was a mildewy-wood smell. If you have allergies, this may be more of an issue for you. We had one in our group of 9 that had a problem with this. On to the food. Food was mediocre quality served... More

We love Creek Ratz when we have several people dinning with us! Especially when they are featuring the Barefoot Guitarist Timmy Pierce!

We were looking for a place with live music early in the evening. A band was playing at Creek Ratz, and the large dance floor was filled with people (mostly women) line dancing. People were having a good time. We shared a table with another couple, who told us the portions were enormous. So we decided to share - had... More

We enjoyed a late lunch in the outdoor area that was protected with clear plastic. So we could enjoy the outdoors and stayed warm. There was a small electric heater to ensure warmth. Our waitress was quick and answered our touristy questions. My grilled fish tacos were a little spicy and very good. My husband's yellow tuna philly was delicious.... More

Great shrimp and grits. Loved the garage doors that opened up to the fantastic view. Will definitely go there again next time I'm down.
