Always fresh and delicious. We' ve been coming to Sara J's for four years now when we're in Myrtle Beach, and it' s the best seafood we've ever eaten.

Today, after arriving to our resort after a several hour drive, my wife and I needed a place for dinner. Being this close to the beach, sea food seemed the appropriate choice. Several of our friend's recommended Sara J's so we decided to stop there. We weren't disappointed. We we seated promptly and given a large portion of hushpuppies as... More

We used to visit here annually. It's been six years since our last trip. Prices are way higher and food quality was not up to past standards. It was just ok but too highly priced. We are all seniors and cannot afford to visit Sara J's any more. Six of us had six different dinners and all agreed.

We all got fried seafood because that's what we all wanted. Everything was fried good and the hush puppies were large and good. The tarter sauce was good but a little tangy for my tastes. I'm also not sure how local or fresh the seafood actually is. The waitress did not know what kind of fish their "white fish" options... More

Our high school football team comes to the beach every March for a long weekend of stories and memories. This tradition includes a dinner visit to SaraJ's on Saturday evening. The food is great, the service is great, the price is reasonable, and they can handle a crowd of 20+.

Sara J's is a great local restaurant in the Murrell's Inlet, SC area. Really crowded on a Thursday night -- had about a 40-45 minute wait. Service was attentive, seafood was fresh and well-prepared. Would visit again.

The restaurant was very busy and the wait was close to 40 mins but the food was worth it. Don't forget to try the sweet tea when you are here.

We drove by this place while it was closed and it looked so charming, we made a note to go back for dinner when it opened. Sadly, the outside charm does not extend to the inside nor was the food anything much to write about. The inside was so noisy, it was unbelievable. Sound just seemed to bounce off every... More

The food and service was excellent but I would offer a suggestion, dine outside. The inside dining room was way too noisy. My wife and I could not even have a conversation. Also, bring your own butter there is a $2 charge! The salad even with an entrée was 3.79 extra. And, a 5.00 fee for sharing your entrée. Overpriced... More

We recently visited Sara J's on a Saturday afternoon during Labor Day weekend. We only had to wait in line for about 10minutes and got a table inside. We waited at the bar a had a few beer. The hostess asked if we preferred inside or outside and we chose inside because Labor Day weekend was very hot. We had... More
