Good, but seems a bit dated

I used to come here as a kid so had many fond memories. Took my daughter here tonight. She enjoyed it but I found it all a little old school. Food was good but a bit bland and uninteresting. She loved hush puppies but I found them too sweet. She had adult sized crab cakes and liked them. I had... read more

Drove almost 2 hrs. to visit Murrells Inlet and was ready for some delicious seafood. We wanted to go to Dead Dog Saloon as we had heard they had great food. It was packed with an hr. wait so we chose Nance's as it was supposed to have seafood platters with more of a family atmosphere. The food was pricey... More

Thank you for dining with us. I'm sorry you feel we are a little outdated which is true to a point. Nance's has focused on keeping the old traditional fish camp style look as well as maintaining our original method of cooking and recipes that made Nance's a household name. We want the fresh taste of our seafood to be... More

Opted to stop in here instead of waiting hours at another place. Had a large group and the wait wasn't so bad here. Was pleasantly surprised how good the food was. Good old fashioned quiet dining experience with awesome views out the large windows!

went for a coupon special on scallops & shrimp ..we wanted the scallops baked or broiled but we were told them only come fried..so we ended up with broiled shrimp and fried scallops.. which was ridiculous..service was slow ..we have not returned..

I'm sorry of this experience you had while dining with us. I wish you had spoken with one of the managers and this could have been taken care of them very easily. Undoubtedly, your server misinformed you because Scalloos are prepared 3 ways (fried, broiled or sautéed), not only fried, as stated on our menu. I'm not sure if there... More

All food fried unless you very specifically request differently. I order the shrimp dinner and, being a northern, never imagined that I would be served a plate of breaded, deep fried shrimp. The good news is that the cocktail sauce somewhat redeemed the frying and the hush puppies here were very good. Big windows across the dining room allow a... More

I am so sorry to hear you weren't pleased with your food. We have broiled platters as well as deep fried platters. It does specify on our menu that seafood platters can be either all broiled or all fried. Your server was supposed to have asked you which way you preferred. We don't automatically fry seafood because we are "Southern".... More

We used to go to Nance's every year but stoppped it started slipping so we skipped a couple of years. Decided to try it again this year and they are back to being the old Nance's again! Food was great as well as the service and beautiful view of the Inlet.

This was our second trip to Nance's and it was just as good as we remembered. The seafood was cooked to perfection. Hushpuppies were good, I tried both, the ones with onions and the ones without.

We dined at Nance's on July 2nd and it was by far the best seafood we've had in the Murrells Inlet area. Seafood prices everywhere are high but from other menus in the area I've seen they are comparable if not lower. The oysters Rockefeller and Crab Dip are so delicious. My family of four all got Seafood dinners and... More

We love nances!!! We have been dining here for many years and will continue to visit!!!! The food is delicious, the view is absolutely gorgeous. I have never had a bad meal here. If the green beans are in a can they're some good greens!!!! I visit for the salmon and sautéed shrimp, which has always been served just right!!!... More
