Best grilled seafood in the area!

We had grilled trigger fish, scallops and shrimp - all were PERFECT. Lee's does the best grilled seafood anywhere. Also had a nice pitcher of Sam Adams - very cold and reasonably priced. Also great homemade desserts. Our favorite restaurant in the Myrtle Beach area!

We enjoyed Lee's so much in 2012 that we returned on our visit this year instead of trying a new restaurant. Lee's has been in business for about 50 years and 3 generations of the Lee family, so you can expect a business with a relaxed confidence and efficiency. They have space for 30 tables in a several rooms in... More

Heard lots about this place and was looking forward to dining there. I have to say that the she crab soup and hushpuppies were great. I had crabmeat stuffed flounder-stuffing was thick and chewy-not much crab. The flounder tasted old-very fishy-maybe frozen. Thought maybe it was just mine but the second entree at the table with flounder was the same.... More

Don't let the aged decor (and clientele) fool you, Lee's Inlet is delicious! We took others recommendations to heart, our table tried the hushpuppies, crabcakes, one of the steaks, salad and onion rings. Everything was fantastic. A little pricey but worth it in our opinion.

Lee's is always the first choice for our evening dining in Murrells Inlet. There are numerous dining choices here and all of them are really busy at dinner time. We like Lee's because of the consistent quality of the food and the service. This week we were served by Cathy who was top notch, knew the menu selections well, provided... More

We stopped by Lee's Inlet Kitchen after spending the day walking on the beach. Although the seafood was good, the side dishes are rather limited. The only vegetable that was offered was overcooked peas. My wife commented that the peas were straight out of the can. I corrected her and mentioned that the peas were straight from the can 4...

While most people flock to the touristy restaurants on the Marsh in Murrells Inlet, this gem of a restaurant is where you want to eat! A family business that has been around for many decades has some of the best food around. Go early and take advantage of the Early Bird Special to get some of the freshest seafood in... More

We had dinner at Lee's twice while staying in Myrtle Beach in March. This place was recommended to us and we were not disappointed. Great and friendly service. Excellent food and a lovely quiet place.

I grew up in the Carolina's vacationing in the area and have very fond memories of going to Lee's Inlet Kitchen with my grandparents.

We ate at Lee's tonight (3/31/2015) and the food was good. It's family owned and we like supporting local businesses! I had the blackened grouper with wild rice (the wild rice tasted instant, I picked at it, but I didn't eat much of it). My husband had the fried seafood platter and he substituted the flounder for grouper. His food... More
