Probably a 3.5, but not a 4. Great hushpuppies, pretty good crab soup but the scallop basket was just ehh, too greasy as were the fries with it. The grouper basket was good, as was the red rice with that but not spectacular. Good service and a funky atmosphere. We were there for an early dinner and they may not... More

We stopped in for lunch on a Tuesday. They have a very informal setting, so I was a little surprised by the prices. Almost every dish was $10 or more, which isn't a lot, I know. But I thought by the atmosphere it would be more diner quality food. Boy was I wrong!! The prices reflect the quality and the... More

We've tried other seafood restaurants in Myrtle Beach & Murrells Inlet but come back to Inlet Crab House everytime. It offers a casual, cozy atmosphere for couples or families. They serve only the best freshest seafood and it is consistently prepared to perfection. Mandy was our server during this visit; she was not only attentive but showed true southern graciousness....

Stopped in based in reviews and because Dan wanted seafood. Easy lunch menu. Basic fish tacos, good. For all the talk of seafood Dan did shrimp quesadillas. Casual bar style food. This place must get nuts in the summer. Good stop for simple eats and a beer.

Had a recommendation from a friend at home in PA to try this place. It did not disappoint any of us! Friendly waitress. DELICIOUS FOOD! She crab soup was scrumptious, shrimp and scallops some of the very best we have ever had! Would absolutely recommend this place and eat there anytime we are in the area!

WOW, I am shocked that one of my servers would treat you like that, just as bad as you posting a bad review. If you felt that way you should have brought to the managers attention. we have alot of satified customers our locals are good customers and we appreciate them but that does not mean we treat other visitors...

Went in mid-afternoon and had a huge bowl of clam chowder that was great. It was about 3:00 and there were people in there which says good things about a restaurant. The onion rings were good and the spiced shrimp were very good. Worth stopping!

Relatively small restaurant with excellent service and excellent Seafood.The oysters we ordered were freshly shucked in the back. They were large,fresh and juicy. The battered clam basket was fresh and crispy. Don't miss the oysters both raw and cooked. A very friendly comfortable place to eat fish and seafood.

Whatever else you order, be sure to get at least a cup of the homemade fish chowder! The fried oysters were lightly breaded and delicious.
