Enjoyable Lunch

We went on a Sunday. I think the person who seated us forgot about us! Never brought any menus then someone brought water that was meant for another table and the brunch menu was an after thought. Things like this happen. The food was good. I had the fish tacos and my partner had a burger... read more

We like to try a new restaurant with each stay. We have been vacationing in Murrells Inlet for 8 years and I don't know why we never tried SWC, but we're sorry we hadn't found it sooner. The location (it sets back off Ocean Hwy just a bit) might is a little different and from the outside it looks a... More

We had such a pleasant experience here today! It was off the beaten path of Murrel's Inlet and totally worth it. The food offering were so good and unique- wraps, fantastic pizzas, soft shell crab sandwiches, paninis absolutely fantastic. We had the potato skins which had pimento cheese and bacon on top- yummy! But just as importantly the service was... More

Thank you for the colorful and kind review! I love it when people mention specific dishes :) I too am glad that this establishment is removed from the craziness of being right off the water. It allows us to take better care of our locals and visitors! We try to treat each and every person that walks through our door... More

I enjoy going to SWC for lunch and to meet friends in the area. It is out of most of the hustle and bustle of the beach on the south end. The owners are very friendly and the good is outstanding. I have never been disappointed in my food there. Their seafood is outstanding as is their selection of creative... More

Thank you very much for the wonderful review! The owner, Keith Wolff, created each dish on our menu from scratch.

We were heading back home from Myrtle Beach and used the App Urban Spoon to find a nearby restaurant. They had lots of drink specials from their full bar, as well as a daily special including deserts. My lil one had a cheese pizza. My hubby had mac and gouda cheese with ham and bacon. I had blackened mahi tacos... More

Excellent, Excellent Excellent!!!! This is a charming restaurant with a fabulous menu!!! Be sure to enjoy the fried shrimp and the spinach/salmon. The bread is delicious---and the desserts are amazing. Be sure and try the Milky Way brownie---and when they say it's for 2 people----it's really for 4 people. Enormous!

We've tried Salt Water Creek about ten times. It was very good at first, but the food declined over the past year. One of my friends had to return her artichoke because it was foul tasting. A woman at a close-by table came over and commended that her lobster was horrible. My BLT salad was not chopped well and was... More

You have my sincere apologizes! We strive to have every dish be the exact same, every time. We apparently failed that evening. The second I read your review, I pulled all my chefs outside and had them each read it individually and asked them where we went wrong and how to prevent it from ever happening again.

Food was good and service was attentive. Just slightly off in both areas. Started with fried green tomatoes ($5) that came with country Dijon mustard which was fine. Also had a spider roll ($9) that wasn't wrapped tight enough and would fall apart when you picked it up. Was just excited to see a place with a good sushi menu.... More

That's one of my pet peeves as well. After reading your review, called an immediate shift meeting and went over that fact with my whole staff. Apologizes on the food being slightly off, it's definitely not our standard to put out food that's 'good enough'. We strive to make sure every plate that goes out of our kitchen is that... More

This is my second visit to Salt Water Creek in the past few years and it was a sweet reminder as to why I enjoyed it so much the first time. The seaside cottage-style decor with the brick flooring has an ambience of intimacy and charm. The food is prepared fresh and it is delicious. For dessert, get the peanut... More

Thank you very much for the wonderful review! It's always a treat for the waiters/waitresses when someone mentions them in a review as I'm a firm believer in positive reinforcement! I make sure that every server that is reviewed, good or bad, is made aware of the situation that transpired. Your wonderfully detailed review lets the whole staff know how... More
