This restaurant is busy often, but don't let that mislead you into thinking it must be wonderful. It is average at best. The seafood I had was broiled but dried out and tasteless. The baked potato was the highlight of my meal.

My friend and I dined here on a Sunday evening. The menu was impressive. I had fried seafood, while my friend had broiled. We both chose the smaller portions, and it was plenty of food. We had leftovers, and were able to get 2 meals out of one. Hushpuppies were fantastic. Dining outside was very relaxing. Will definitely return the... More

We had a great waiter, the food was excellent, we ask to be seated outside overlooking the water, good atmosphere, very enjoyable evening. We definitely will go back again.

Myrtle Beach Online (The Sun News) reviewed all of the Seaford Restaurants in the area at the beginning of the Season and the locals rated this restaurant #2 in all of Myrtle Beach. As a local as well, this is my #1. A lot of excellent food, at a great price.

I have been visiting this restaurant since 2009 when I visit Myrtle Beach (yearly). Excellent food!!! Great atmosphere and view. If going in the busy part of summer, need to be there when they open at 4pm or you will be waiting 1-2 hours, but SO worth it!

As a person who doesn't eat seafood, I understand there will be few menu options for me when dining with a family of seafood lovers. However, I can usually find something that I enjoy. I ordered chicken parmesan, figuring it would be a safe choice - but the chicken was fried so crisp it was difficult to eat more than... More

Delicious seafood! Love that there are options of fried, broiled and grilled. Their homemade key lime pie was a great end to this meal. Will definitely be back!

Nice restaurant, good view if you get a table outside. They do not take reservations but it moves rather quickly. We only waited 30 mins on Friday night during the summer. Our waitress, Fran, was awesome! Hush puppies are yummy and I recommend the terriyaki shrimp. Fair prices and a nice place to eat. This is one of our usual... More

Service was good. Bar choices is very limited (only one cheap brand of vodka available). Ordered the sautéed shrimp and scallops (I left half of it). These were overcooked, poorly seasoned, shrimps had an after taste. Only good enough to eat was the side salad. We Also ordered the teriyaki shrimp (salty and overcooked). Find somewhere else to eat
