Great meal...we will return!

My wife and I made a decision to look at Trip Advisor and pick our restaurant. What a meal! She had the filet and shrimp and I had the hot fish platter, with scallops. It was A+ and we plan many more trips. Everyone was friendly and the service was exceptional. Thanks!!!

The oysters, the fish, the scallops- very, very, good. They have a reasonable wine list, including wine by the glass. The oysters on the half shell were meaty and very tasty. An added bonus, my wife found a small pearl in one of them. The scallops were cooked perfectly and the risotto and spinach, on which they were placed, were... More

We moved to the area in October, and this was our first visit to the Hot Fish Club. We thoroughly enjoyed everything from the soups (she crab and seafood, corn chowder) to our main dishes; shrimp and grits and the grilled shrimp platter. All very tasty. Our server, Randy, was extremely pleasant and did a great job, too. We will... More

Me and my wife ate here for dinner on a sat night. Even though it was just the two of us there was a 40 min wait unless we sat on deck. Inside seating is a little limited especially when several tables are reserved. There were heaters on deck but was still chilly. Food and service were good.

We made reservations for a party of 14 last night ( Friday, January 29, 2016). Our table was ready when we arrived, our service was impeccable. We all got something different and everyone in the group loved what they got. The flounder, the crab cakes, the Mahi Mahi, the grouper, the crab legs, the shrimp all awesome. And the portions...

A water front dining experience. Very busy on the busy season. They have great senior specials. The crab cakes are the best I ever ate. Fish and chips is out of this world. Good portion sizes at a reasonable price.

The Hot Fish Club is a great local seafood restaurant that serves only fresh seafood that is regularly flown or driven to Murrells Inlet. The service is great and the owner greets you when you arrive to welcome you. Our party had several different entrees and everyone only had good things to say.
