Sara Js has been a. Favorite for over 20 years. Our wait on a Sunday was 20 - 30 minutes for inside and came in close to the shorter side. Our waitress was very good, all the food was fantastic. Highly recommend the stuffed shrimp or seafood casserole.

Scallops & shrimp were supposed to be sautéed, but came out rubbery like they were boiled. The sheepshead was way over cooked & flavoring on all food was very disappointing. We cannot understand how they received 3 stars- total waste of our money & extremely disappointing for a waterfront restaurant that has access to fresh seafood - need a new... More

Best seafood we have had. The servings are plentiful and service is excellent. Go early if you do not like to wait since this restaurant draws a crowd! It's worth the wait though! You will not be disappointed! The scallops and the Seafood Alfredo are the best around!

This is our favorite Seafood restaurant in the Myrtle Beach, Garden City, Surfside Beach areas. The portions are large and the food is fantastic. The view is beautiful...great for photo opportunities. We eat here at least 2 times each trip to the beach.

Krabby Patties are horrible! Mixed with really over cooked unrecognizable seafood parts....just another poor excuse for commercial Foodservice on the beach....stay with the chains...you know what to expect and your wallet will not be raped!

This is our favorite place to eat while vacationing in the Myrtle Beach/Surfside Beach area. The food is excellent and we eat there at least two or three times during our vacation. It is reasonably priced (not a buffet) and everyone is very friendly. We love it.

I have lived in Garden City for over 20 years and have never eaten at Sara J's until today! Every time I drove past there was a long line. I decided earlier today my husband and I were finally going to give it a try and got there about fifteen minutes before they opened. Already had a line forming! We... More

And, it wasn't more than 15 minutes. However, there are so many other places to go. If you're looking for large servings of average, bland and I suspect frozen seafood you won't be disappointed. The hush puppies taste like a mix and were doughy. The large shrimp were served without tails and had zero taste. However, to make up for... More

We chose to eat there while on vacation for a family reunion. We had a group of 12 and I will say that the service and atmosphere were very good, however, the meal was mediocre at best. I ordered shrimp and grits which is one of their "signature items". It was so bland it nearly had zero taste! My wife... More

They did not accommodate our group of 15 very well even though they had the table tops available to put us all together. Instead, the kids sat at a different table. In the middle of dinner, the teenagers got up to take baby to bathroom and then little ones went to gift shop real quick. Before we knew it, there... More
