Sara J's

Excellent food at very reasonable price. I returned several times during our stay last fall and plan to visit the next time we are in the area.

This was very average food for the price. While at the beach I realize things are more expensive but this was ridiculous! It was over $80 for 2 adults and 1 child (ordered from the child's menu). We had no alcohol and no appetizers. The servings were also average. Don't plan on bringing food home. Not a place I will... More

The building is impressive from the outside but beware of the 1970's " Moose Lodge look " inside. The outside seating , lets call it the porch, is just that . Its a rundown outside porch wrapped in thick plastic zippered panels that make it very difficult to enjoy what could be a nice view of the marsh. The service... More

Dinner with my daughter for Mother's Day weekend. Sarah J's outdoor seating is excellent--ceiling fans throughout and they have clear roll-down enclosures in case of bad weather. Food was also excellent---daughter had their shrimp and grits and I had a senior's combo of oysters and shrimp---oysters were small, but very tasty. This is the only seafood place where I like...

The place was empty after season and it took forever to get the food and it was not great. Service wasn't much better.

Decided to try a new place for our 2nd Anniversary of moving here. The food was high priced for a small nearly SALAD SIZED PLATE of bland food. Even the salad was not fresh tasting. Ordered stuffed shrimp and got what was supposed to be 4 shrimp turned out to be 3 TINY SHRIMP from a grocery store BURIED in... More

First: atmosphere - right on the water and away from loud businesses and streets, perfect view of the inlet. Second: The wait staff are very attentive. Our server was Carlie and she was very good. I noticed other wait staff looking to see if we needed anything, and when we were finished I noticed another server go tell Carlie we... More

Went here with my wife and kids based on some food trip advisor reviews spent $160 on some very average food. None of us were impressed at all. The shrimp was bland, the oysters; soup and fried were not good. This was a low light of our trip to Myrtle beach; save yourself the time and money and go to... More

No drink items listed on the menu. When I asked what they served for drinks, the server replied hastily. Food mostly fried or salad. Would have liked to see more grilled or broiled options.
