These were some of the rudest bartenders I have ever encountered. Couldn't even get a drink at one bar so went to the other, bartender was pretty drunk so couldn't get a drink from her either. I asked my wife if there was a manager anywhere when this woman chimed in to inform us that the drunk bartender was the... More

Decided to try different seafood restaurant at Murrells Inlet. Usually go to Inlet Crab House. Asked if seafood was local and told it was not but that flounder came from North Carolina. We had the fried flounder. Portions were a bit on small size but tasty and prepared well. Coleslaw and fries average. We were told to choose our seating... More

The crab cake and fish sandwiches were very good and the rustic fish shack atmosphere contributes to an enjoyable experience. Water views and boardwalk are pluses. Service was good, but we did have to wait quite a while for our sandwiches. However, it was a family gathering and time flew as we were all having fun. Would certainly consider bringing... More

The location of this place is great, the vibe of this place is great but the service is very hit or miss. I can handle poor service or a unhappy waitress, what was really frustrating was not being able to order oysters during the middle of the season! The other establishments near by had them but not Creek Ratz. The... More

great fish sandwich, my companions po-boy was scrumptious & the walkway around the marsh was a great way to take a stroll after a good meal. Super casual place - if I lived there I would be a regular!

Creek Ratz is a must for anyone visiting Murrells Inlet. The food is great, we had oyster "PO boys" and fries with fried pickles for an appetizer.the service is excellent. The atmosphere is "down home" with a cozy fire to take off the chill when needed. In warm weather the outdoor dining along the "Marsh Walk" is wonderful.

We stopped by the marsh for a lunch on a lovely sunny December afternoon. The food was great as always. I vote it the best clam chowder around. The service is friendly and the beer is cold. Keep up the good work Ratz!

Ever since my family discovered this place we keep going back. The food is good, the atmosphere is great, and the staff are friendly! Music can be a little loud if you go on nights where they have live bands there, but I only say that because I would usually rather talk over dinner than party. Marsh walk is always... More
