Good food, friendly service. I had fried shrimp basket and hubby had Mahi special - very good. He also loved the fish stew. I had the she crab soup which was just ok. Needed more crab in it. Hush puppies were terrific.

I've eaten lunch here twice this week and can highly recommend the grouper. The shrimp and grits are good, too, but go for the grouper basket if you like grouper. The prices are very reasonable, the seafood is fresh, and the lunch portions are plenty to eat. Service was great the first time and fair the second. Everyone is friendly... More

This is a quaint little place that has great menu options. My boyfriend, my brother, and I visited the Inlet Crab House for the first time in October 2014, because it's my mom's favorite. We were not disappointed! When my boyfriend and I went back to visit my mom during the holidays, we were craving the steamed crab legs from... More

This one of our regular restaurants when we are in the Myrtle Beach area. Just the right casual atmosphere for the Inlet and great food. The she crab soup couldn't be better, the house salad is surprisingly tasty and not the standard mix of iceberg lettuce, the crab cakes are very "crabby" and delicious. My wife usually gets the seafood... More

If you are looking for delicious fried grouper, shrimp, oysters, etc. this is your place! Visiting from Florida we have had our share of wonderful seafood and this did not disappoint! The grouper was light and so tender and the batter used on all the food was fabulous! You can tell their frying oils are changed often. Also, the she-crab... More

Just to let you know after reading your review that I have checked all the salads and they were fine. If you were having a bad dinner you should have said something to the Manager, As for the uncomfortable seating well you could have just got up and left if you hadnt orderd we would not have been offended.
