This is a quaint and intimate hangout for locals and visitors looking for a beachy vibe. Great for a few beers (not sure about the mixed drinks) but don't eat the food! The seafood is undercooked to a golden brown and canned vegetables are dressed up in tomatoes to cover up that they're not fresh. The she crab soup which... More

We usually visit another establishment at the inlet, but the wait was far too long with two younger kiddos. We ventured over to this place and they only had a 30-45 minute wait. Manageable... It was our daughters 7th birthday and our 1st night of vacation so we were all pretty excited, but tired after a long drive. We were... More

My husband picked this restaurant; I was thrilled with our dinners. The conch fritters were good, the hush puppies were possibly the best I've ever had. The raw oysters were very fresh. We shared the spicy steamed shrimp, which were amazing, and the steamed clams, which were decent. Our daughter had the chicken from the kids menu, she enjoyed it.... More

I had the shrimp salad for lunch. Ice cold, at least two dozen small shrimp in a light dressing surrounded by tomato wedges. This is the fourth time I've had this dish and I don't know of a better shrimp salad on the Inlet.This place has been in business for over twenty years and their consistency of fresh seafood dishes...

Nice little restaurant with a funky atmosphere. I ate lightly with tasty she crab soup and salad. Soup was tasty and very creamy. Salad had nice greens with no iceburg lettuce. Husband enjoyed a scallop po' boy sandwich. Prices are very reasonable.

She crab soup, fish bites, huge burgers (fresh), crab stuffed jalepenos... OK wife wanted she crab soup, WE FOUND THE BEST! Fish bites were fresh and tasty, crab stuffed peppers sounded way better than they were, not that they were bad just not my favorite. My son ordered a bacon cheeseburger and it was huge and delicious. We also tried... More

Nothing really special about the food. We were expecting more considering the high ranking here. I ordered a tuna steak that was on special that evening. It was dry, overcooked and small. We were one of the last families seated that evening. We sat outside, which was nice until the staff sat at a table next to ours and began... More

Arrived late afternoon for dinner and it took quiet a while to be seated even though there was no crowd and tables were available. Hostess seemed inexperienced Were greated promptly by waitress. Menu choices were average with nothing really special. Found it odd that the only fried shrimp choice they have is fantail. Ordered peel and eat steamed seasoned shrimp... More

We visit Pawley's Island every summer, spring break, labor day and memorial day and always dine at our favorite resturant in Murrells Inlet - the Inlet Crab House. Our children learned to eat Steamed Oysters and Crab Legs which are always THE BEST! We have eaten everything on the menu and it never disappoints.
