Fabulous Restaurant

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... read 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

I had to bring my son here during his Bachelor Outing. No way could I visit near this resturant and not visit. I have to say some of the best fish I have ever eat anywhere. 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

We are new to the Myrtle Beach/Murrells Inlet area...visiting it, that is. Found Sara J's and decided to try it. The staff was great, and we sat outside on the porch! The food, however, was okay. I had broiled shrimp and scallops with rice...expected them to have butter and garlic...they came out with some orange spice, and I didn't taste... More

Family and friends had dinner here last night. It is one of my wife's favorite restaurants because she loves their Shrimp And Grits and every fall we stop here once. It's always been just "OK" for me but last nights meal was really good. I had the seafood platter with scallops and the scallops were done to perfection. The atmosphere... More

We always go to Sara J's when at Myrtle Beach. Love it. Great service and food. Were told it would be about a 30 minute wait, but it was maybe 15 minutes. Server was friendly. Food came out fast and was piping hot. Portions are large.
