Great seafood selections, service and atmosphere

This was our third yearly visit to HFC, and we requested Randy to be our server. Since we had two in our party with food allergies, Randy made sure their dinners would be safe.....loved the personal service!

We were looking for something new to try in the Myrtle Beach area and thought why not try the #1 ranked restaurant in Murrells Inlet?? Judging by the pictures on Trip Advisor, we thought it would be a more casual restaurant and wore tshirts and jeans. We got there just a few minutes after they opened so we didn't feel... More

Visited there today, Aug. 27 2015, with husband and two kids. Knowing that it will get busy we arrived a little earlier, though with kids and eating at a usual family hour it was only 15 minutes earlier than we'd usually go out. We were seated right away and got a great spot on the screened in porch with a... More

Based on trip advisor recommendations decided to make the 25 minute drive to HFC for dinner. We arrived early and selected to sit on the porch. There was an old fish odor in the main dining room. Our server was sweet and informative! We ordered Grouper Bites that tasted fishy and needed to be washed down with the table cocktail... More

Probably one of the more unusual restaurants in MI. We ate in the gazebo as we love outdoor dining. Waiter very accommodating and the grouper dish was fantastic. You won't like the atmosphere if you are looking for a place that's not salty. This had plenty of "salty" including a Marley-ish guitarist/singer. Would definitely return.

This location was recommended by a local family member. Upon arriving we noticed that the restaurant is located in a nice spot. Great water front dining. The inside of the building was simple and clean. The server was attentive and friendly, and the food selection was good and on point. I had a good meal, and can say that the... More

Hot Fish was the best meal we had while visiting the area. Service was excellent and the steak and seafood were amazing! Definitely going back next time we're in town.

Went to Hot Fish Club last night with three friends. Every one thought the food and service was great. Three so had the lobster pot pie, the other the seafood platter. Both were great. We had appetizers of shrimp and scallop quesadilla, corn chowder and oysters Rockefeller, between us. All were excellent according to my friends. We all will certainly... More

Food was very good, but the sitting outside and the ambiance was even better. This is a laid back, down home experience with cold beer and hot seafood that was very satisfying. Nothing fancy about the Hot Fish Club, but well worth the trip....would recommend it to the person who is looking for a different experience in Murrells Inlet/Litchfield Beach/Pawleys... More
