Fried shrimp was excellent and a large portion. Hush puppies are so yummy with the honey butter. Everything was so fresh. Excellent wait service and friendly staff all,around.

We visited here 2 times in one week because we enjoyed the bar food so much. Large fried soft shell crab $5, shrimp cocktail $4.50. Barefoot wine $3. What else can I say? Oh. Happy hour all night Monday to Thursday. Til 6 Saturday n Sunday. Bartender friendly as well as the rest of the staff. We'll be back.

Lee's Inlet is like one of those restaurants I remember as a kid... one of those places that my whole family would drive out of the way for to get a great meal. Lee's is not some fancy "hoity toity" restaurant. But the food is fresh, and it is simply and perfectly prepared - broiled, fried, or blackened. For me,... More

We finally got to Lee's in our last night in Murrell's Inlet. It has been in operation for a number of years. The food was the best we had all week. I had the fried shrimp; it was perfect and was a generous serving. The shrimp was very lightly battered. The trigger fish was delicious as well as the grouper.... More

This historic location is always busy and for good reason. You will find the food and service is some of the finest you will experience anywhere. The touch of history experienced in this original location only adds to the experience! Come early as they begin serving dinner at 4PM and the lines you sometimes find are a sign of the... More

Always Good !!!...we are starting on our 46th year going here. Could not wait for this weekend to come and for Lee's to reopen for the Season. Hush puppies to die for...and what a way to start the meal. Followed by the Wonderful Clam Chowder, our family favorite, ...just perfect anytime, but tonight was chilly and with a fire in... More

Been here many times and always pleased. Food is excellent - hubby usually gets grouper and I get shrimp. Hush puppies are one of, if not the best we've had. If you have room the desserts are heavenly. Service always pleasant.

My wife used to eat here when she was a child,and remembers good food in a nice atmosphere. Our recent trip there in September reinforced these good memories. This is good Southern food in a clean environment with fine service.

Wow, talk about going back in time. Lots of homey dishes and offerings. Got the fish, decent. Lots of frying here. The food is a little to much for me with lots of frying but can be good for some others as they get good ratings. I would probably go down the road and check out those other places myself... More
