We've turned into our grandparents! Eating early has it's advantages; we were seated right away and our waitress was very attentive and knowledgable. The crab cakes were DELISH and my husband's steak was absolutely Devine! My son enjoyed his seafood pasta and well, my daughter can't go wrong with fried mozzarella sticks.

Started with the Shrimp and Crab Bisque and it was tasty but could have been more hardy. The pasta trio was exceptional, if you love seafood try this. The amount of seafood was incredible. The quality of drinks I chose wasn't great but that's my unfamiliarity with the local breweries and picking a more appropriate drink to pair with my... More

Lots of reviews of other bigger, more popular, if you will, restaurants on the inlet. We happened upon this restaurant trying to run to the closest restaurant in a rain storm. As soon as I walked in, I felt transformed back to time. The walls are the most beautiful and soothing blue green. Great views of inlet from most of... More

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!

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
