Great Food!

I visited the Inlet Crab House for the first time and the food was great and the service was great. Thanks Keisha! I can't wait to go back. The best clam basket, She crab soup and Grouper.

The food here was the best I have had during my time in SC and it was accompanied by amazing service, provided by Lauren. Definitely recommended.

I wanted some seafood, so we drove up from Litchfield Beach to Murrells Inlet. We went early (4:30), because there were long waits in prior years for most restaurants there. No wait this time, and I couldn't believe my fortune in hearing Radio Margaritaville being played. I had the soft shelled crab to try something different. It was OK. Next... More

We loved the atmosphere and the food was very good. Very solid service from Jackie. The shrimp basket is lightly breaded and good. We have yet to find "real" Hush puppies with onions in them anywhere, BUT theirs are extremely good.

You can't go wrong choosing to eat here for lunch or dinner! My Mom & I had Saturday lunch here. Needless to say we were pleasantly surprised. The flounder & shrimp were fresh and fried perfectly, slaw amazing! (homemade and not over powered by mayonnaise). Staff super friendly!! Atmosphere charming - a must try!

The food here is AMAZING. It's all made fresh and tastes great. Cindy behind the bar was so awesome too. She was great to talk to and made wonderful drinks. Next time I go to the area I will definitely visit the Inlet Crab House again.

The food is excellent on freshness but a little steep on price. The baskets are the way to go! :-) The only decide is that it's not down near the Marshwalk.

Based on reviews we decided to try this one and were very happy we did. I loved the seafood here, the preparation was spot on. The fried seafood was not overly battered and fried to death like some others do. My son who may be the pickiest eater ever surprised us all by finishing his fish and fries!

We visited the Inlet Crab house and Raw Bar during our recent vacation to Litchfield Beach. We always enjoy going to Murrells Inlet for dinner and look forward to trying different establishments. The Inlet Crab House was rated number 3 on TripAdvisor which I really trust however, this time I was rather disappointed. We were a party of 5 and... More
