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.

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

Very casual but huge disappointment on Easter Sunday. Greasy hush puppies, watery Alfredo sauce, and I had a tasteless ,broiled seafood platter. Service was acceptable but food and quality for the price far below other area seafood destinations.

We visited Sara J's for the first time, last night. I went with my wife, 2 kids, and my parents. Arriving around 5:30, we were seated immediately. Our server greeted us quickly and answered questions about the menu. All the adults ordered seafood combinations and everyone raved about their meals. I had fried clams and fish. Both were excellent.

This visit was the first time my husband and I didn't have to wait for a table (off season) but it was still really busy. The service and food were excellent. The hush puppies they bring out are piping hot and the butter they serve with them makes a perfect appetizer. We arrived at 5 pm & they still offered... More

Local fresh seafood prepared to order. Lightly breaded non-greasy seafood at its best. Cozy atmosphere with friendly servers. Offers combination platters of 1 to 3 fresh seafoods with early bird specials and senior specials but regular prices are very reasonable and competitive with other area restaurants. Will be cloisng at end of this month until spring. Open Thursday through Saturday... More

One in our group dont eat fish and had steak that he said was extremely well prepared and delicious. Recommend this place to anyone... More

We got to the restaurant about 530pm. We waited about 10 min. The lady that seated us made sure that the older lady with us and had a cane, had the easiest route to outside seating. A very pleasant atmosphere. The food, the service and the atmosphere was once again very very good. The hushpuppies were hot, and our orders... More

Based on the reviews and location our party of 7 went here for dinner on a Thursday night. We were greeted by a friendly hostess who arranged for us to sit "outside" as told to do by other reviewers. The view was spectacular, however it was blocked by dirty clear plastic shades. Our waitress was friendly & accomadating. We were... More
