We got away for a long weekend and spent a glorious day on the beach. What could top that off better than a fabulous meal at Lee's? We both enjoyed early bird specials- scrumptious seafood combo platters with succulent shrimp, flounder and deviled crab- and hushpuppies, of course. Wish I were... read more

The restaurant is very charming and features a nice variety of fresh seafood. They also have wonderful desserts! A step up from all the seafood buffets up the street! Would highly recommend

Our family of 6 went to Lee's on the recommendation of friends for our final night of our long Thanksgiving weekend in Myrtle Beach. We really hadn't finalized our plans for dinner after leaving Brookgreen Gardens nearby, but remembered this was one of the seafood places our friends had told us about and it was close by. Although there was... More

The menu offers many choices but if you go, you must try any one of the fabulous fish dishes. We all had different fish dishes and after sampling each other's, we were all agreed, this place is a treasure. The service was charming and very friendly too.

Lee's Inlet Kitchen celebrated their 67th year of operations this year; still owned and operated by the same family (3rd generation) - think that says something about the restaurant itself. In the 60's, my best friend's parents came to Lee's Inlet Kitchen for their Anniversary dinner - back then that was "big doins". All building up the expectations....and we finally... More

We went there based on prior excellent reviews. I do not know what happened, but the only thing outstanding was the waitress! The quality of the food was poor. I had broiled flounder and it was dry and tasteless....frozen? My hubby scallops were plentiful but no flavor...frozen? Hush puppies not good...all I tasted was the sugar. Salad was cold and...

I took my fiance here for her birthday dinner. We were dissapointed with the quality of the food. The food seemed to taste like it was frozen and then heated up. I am not sure if we just got an off night or what. They were very busy during our visit. We will not be feturning.

I've been hungry for a good fresh seafood dinner for some time now & after reading many reviews settled on Lee's. What a total disappointment this was. My stomach is still queasy. I had the famous she crab soup which was very good at first, but when I stirred it with my spoon it became thinner and very salty to... More
