Great food can be difficult to find at myrtle beach. This restaurant is worth the drive. Great seafood and service. View of channel with goats and peacocks. Crab cakes are recommended. Salmon is moist. Good be and wine selection. Waiter was great. A little pricey but worth it.

Nice atmosphere. Just your average tourist trap. Wife had fried oysters after recommendations from waitress, but were horrible, I had flounder and shrimp which was so-so, may have been better if it was warmer. Portion size just avg. Our waitress was nice and responsive. If this is one of the best in this area, we'll be cooking our own for... More

Poor service, slow and overcooked my steak and had the audacity to argue with a 52 year old customer that knows the difference between a medium rare and well done steak. Great water views, nice and clean interior, but I WOULD NOT EVER GO BACK, IT WAS THAT BAD!

Huge portions ... Split the fish and grits w/my boyfriend, and we both had more than enough. Nice atmosphere/view. Friendly service.

We had a lovely table on the second floor. My wife and I both had the delicious wedge salad. My wife had the shrimp bisque and I had the shrimp cocktail that was just the right size and sweet and fresh. She had the crab cakes which were generous and oniony. I had the shrimp and cheesy grits with ham... More

We have a place at Litchfield Beach so we are in this area alot. We came to this restaurant at the recommendation of friends who have a place down there as well. I would say that we have avoided these restaurants, because it is classic tourist fare... First, the view of the marsh is nice. Secondly, the food was very... More

We went on a friday night at 730 pm in June with a group of 11 girls. The restaurant is beautifully done inside, great bar area, nice tables, a wall of sliding doors/windows to see the view. The wine menu was large, and the drinks of all kinds were very good. The menu had so many great options, it was... More

Although can get a little noisy the food more than makes up for it. Awesome every time and best seafood around - thick flounder, nice shrimp and hushpuppies - oh my ! Great service, upper floor has views of docks and inlet as well as lower but not as much. Save your pennies though - not your $9.99 special -... More

We visited on the spur of the moment and had a great meal. Being from the UK we were not sure what to make of the "hushpuppies"!! We all ordered different shrimp/fish/grouper/scallops and they were all delicious - especially the home made coleslaw. Portions were large and we didn't have room for a dessert. The view was good and our... More
