Nances is where many locals go for great seafood , Reasonably priced and always good. The Oyster Bucket when in season is dynomite, the tables have a large hole in center and a large can underneath , no muss no fuss just eat and enjoy.All other dishes are super also. We have eaten here many times. The Baron Family

We really enjoyed our seafood dinner at Nance's. The fried seafood was perfectly cooked with a light breading. We did not have the steamed oysters, however most of the tables at the restaurant were enjoying them, so they must have been delicious. Several different side dishes were offered which was nice. Although their prices are comparable to other Murrell's Inlet... More

We stopped in on a raining night and was seated quickly. The staff was friendly and attended to us well. The restaurant was cold in side and uncomfortable. Most folks were wearing jackets. I ordered the stuffed flounder after asking if the $18.99 dish was stuffed with crab meat. I was told it was. The fish I received was half... More

Looking for a nice dinner on a last night in town, we chose Nance's. It was to have a good view of the marsh and it didn't disappoint. Staff seats each group as close to the windows as possible without you having to ask. I appreciated that. We chose the low country boil. The serving was so big (for 2)... More

We have dined at Nance's since the 1980's. It is a tradition for us to get slimy and messy with the wonderful oyster clusters harvested right there.

Been eating her about once a year for over 20 years. Food is always great, service good, crowds large. Get here before 6 or be prepared to wait a bit.

This place has great views and excellent food. The oysters are top notch and the service is good. However, the atmosphere is very stuffy and quite. We felt like everyone there was much older than us and it was a little fish campy. During high season I suspect that is not the case but in the shoulder seasons it appears... More

Being December, with wind and rain along with being stuck in traffic at the end of the Christmas Parade Nance's was our port for our evening dinner. No waiting. Good service. Great view! Sea food platter was average. The majority of customers were having seamed oysters. They were coming out by the tubs full. Prices were good. Plenty of parking.... More
