Yummiest hushpuppies in the area

I know, hush puppies shouldn't be the deciding factor on where to eat...but we always get some extra for the 4 Hour trip ride home! Shrimp and grits are good, fish and chips are good...everything is good. Seating outside is nice and the staff is friendly. Food is quick and hot

Order the Seafood Platter Grilled, especially if you like clams! Awesome dinner. Also had She Crab soup, some of the best we had and some exceptional Onion Ring appetizers. Even found out how Hush Puppies that dome with the Shrimp and Grits got their name. Mandy our server was simply outstanding and really made us feel welcome!

We had an excellent lunch here this week. I had the shrimp with onion fries basket - both very lightly coated, hot and flavorful. My husband had his favorite - Apalachicola oysters (super) and a very good string bean dish. Prices are very reasonable and the portions were plentiful. This little place will catch your eye for it's bright and... More

I read the reviews on several restaurants in the Murrells Inlet area and this one had great reviews. My husband & I ate lunch there. I had their She Crab soup which was terrific. My husband had the Grits and I had a soft shell crab sandwich. The food was good, but what made our experience so memorable was Keisha... More

Bridgett was a wonderful waitress. The shrimp, slaw and onion rings were the best ever. The she crab soup was delicious and wish we could get it in Charlotte. Don't miss this restaurant where you are in the area. A must 😄

We were on a golf weekend, and coming from the plains states, we were seeking a great, simple, down home family restaurant that does fresh seafood. They had incredible oysters on the half shell, spicy steamed peel and eat shrimp, conch and She-Crab soup and much more. We went back a second night for another go, and Cindi at the... More

Comparable prices. Fresher seafood and lighter batter than most others. Atmosphere is awesome and relaxing with background music like Buffett. Not loud blasting music like many. Thanks Cindy for great service and knowledge of the area. We ate there several times already. Scallops and shrimp are awesome and fresh. Complements to chef for cooking just right. See you in December.

We always try to dine here when we are in Myrtle Beach , it's just across from the Fire Dept. Forget the restraurants among the salt marsh in Murrell's Inlet.. This beats all .. Hands down! You can go to the Salt Marsh walkways after you eat here ! We noticed right away the new decor! We tried spinach and... More
