Great view

Love the atmosphere. I always sit outside for the marsh view. Good selection of food and great bar drinks. Can get very busy during dinner hours.

My family of 12 went here during our family trip to Myrtle Beach. We had about a 10-15 minute wait but were told we could wait outside by the marsh and enjoy the music and/or outside bar or we could order from the bar a drink while we waited. The service was excellent and she (Sara) constantly asked if we... More

My wife and I sat at the bar and had fantastic service. We both had the Sara J's Special- my wife had her's broiled and mine was the standard fried. The portions were very large and the food was delicious. We will certainly be back!

Had a party of 5 and got seated promptly on the deck, there was a wait for dining room. Nice food portions, we brought boxes home. I had the salmon, didnt care for the sauce. The fried shrimp was large portions. My husband had the seafood casserole and enjoyed it. It was a bit pricey, $80 for the three of... More

We always visit Sara J's when we come down to the beach. The food is good and service is great, Holly especially. She is the kindest and sweetest waitress there is. The crab cakes are delicious! But you have to get the key lime pie!

We have been coming here for a number of years and we are never disappointed. They have great food at reasonable prices, friendly staff and a great view. All this adds up to one of the best values in the Myrtle Beach area!

Went here for dinner with my family of five and some friends. The Buffalo shrimp were soggy, tiny, and cold. I honestly believe they were frozen shrimp. The Buffalo sauce tasted like orange butter. Steak and chicken were perfectly average, similar to something you would get at Shoneys or golden Corral, and a notch below what you would get at... More

Hushpuppies, seafood, and even an excellent ribeye. Mixed drinks for the ladies and cold beer for anyone who wants it. Sara J's is a regular stop on our restaurant list and a recommend for anyone else.

I visited Sara J's for dinner along with my mother and niece and the food was great! We started out with a basket of delicious hush puppies which were complimentary. The menu was overwhelming with a lot of great variety. I opted for the stuffed shrimp (which I would gladly order again and again) and a side of cheese grits.... More
