plentiful servings

Visited Creek Ratz with three adult family members. We all had seafood. large portions, certainly enough for everyone. Restaurant may have been understaffed. Enjoyed patio seating.

The crab cakes were the best I've ever eaten! According to our server, everything is prepared from scratch which certainly seemed true for everything we ordered. Food is reasonably priced. Sit outside and enjoy the wonderful atmosphere.

The restaurant is located in a nice waterside community called Murrell's Inlet, one of a strip of restaurants lining a marshside boardwalk. A very pretty setting - probably hopping in the summertime but a bit quiet on the warm march day we visited. My husband enjoyed his seafood (heavy on the deep fried stuff) and my daughter did fine with... More

This is more of a drinking hole or a "pick-up" joint than a restaurant. It was obvious that our service went south when we only ordered water and iced tea instead of alcohol with an entree. Our meal was to come with hush puppies but the meal only had 2. I asked for a few more and was charged for... More

I love Creek Ratz for their laid back atmosphere. Have a seat in a rocking chair and enjoy people watching and possibly fireworks with a great view all while listening to music! A neat little place to drink and enjoy "fun food" including seafood dishes while watching solo artists playing guitar and singing outside on their deck!

Great food at reasonable prices and waitstaff exceptionally friendly. Restaurant has indoor and outdoor dining. It is worth the wait for seating on the patio. We just enjoy going often for dinner or dinner and for drinks and appetizers. There is free popcorn while you wait for your meal. The entertainment is always great. It should be on your list...

Clam po'boy recently ordered was nothing but hard, over battered, over fried, indistinguishable brown, nuggets on top of lettuce on soft roll. Non of sandwiches ordered were worth the price!

Fun place. Went Wednesday evening had dinner with my family. Food was very good. Wait staff was frendly and attentive but not overly. Crowd that nite was 55 plus. Band was local, decent.
