We had eaten a very late lunch, so only needed a light dinner. We had the crab bisque and the shrimp cocktail - both very good.

Four of us went for dinner. Service was fast and friendly. No wait...we had reservations. Was a BOGO evening but that did not take away from the portions or the service. each meal was excellent and we would all recommend Capt. Dave's.

Dinner here last night could only be described in one word: UNDERWHELMING & OVER PRICED. The bacon wrapped shrimp appetizer was burnt and dried out with no sauce accompaniment. The Prime rib & potatoes were acceptable. But, the creamed spinach (normally a favorite of mine elsewhere) was awful. Also, portion of my wife's dish (beans) were dried out & not... More

Unique atmosphere, wonderful menu...a locals favorite and a gem to find if you are in the area. We have been several times, at different times for various meals. All of them were wonderful.

Took our family on Sunday for lunch and was disappointed because you do not have a choice of menu and you must use the Sunday Brunch and it was not two for one until 2 on Sunday. The food was not as good as we have had in the past but our waitress was great. We will try it again... More

Lot's of choices for dining in Murrell;s Inlet, but Captain Dave's stands out a bit from the rest, not your typical tourist type of dining room. Casual elegance is the atmosphere here, with a touch of the South. Perfect drinks from the bar, a varied menu sure to satisfy anyone. We dined here on a Sunday evening, taking advantage of... More

A local from the church we attended/visited recommend this place mainly because of the off season buy one get one special. We had two nice fried seafood platters and the food was not greasy, very flavorful and plentiful. Atmosphere was a step above most in Murrells Inlet and the view was,well, a marsh. Small hush puppies were served with a... More

On a recent short vacation trip to Myrtle Beach, wife and I stopped into this restaurant for Dinner. The seafood was very good and we arrived for a "two for one" meal pricing scheme, which made it even better. We were seated near the rear wall, overlooking the Marsh Walk. Great view of sundown over the marsh areas. Our only... More
