Tried this restaurant based on TA reviews and condo owner recommendations. We were a group of 4 and we arrived about 5 pm on a weeknight. We were seated promptly at a table with plastic beach chairs (uncomfortable if you're larger size person or if you perspire a lot). We asked the waiter about the grouper and he indicated it... More

This was our first time in Myrtle Beach and wanted some good seafood for a decent price. Bimini's was great. Although it was very loud inside, the wait time wasn't bad and the food was great. Our server was also fun and helpful.

The food was ok, I had the peel & eat shrimp which was really good. My husband had the fish plate (the menu does not specify what kind of fish) but it tasted like something you would get at Captain D's and otherwise disappointing for a fresh seafood place. Even though the fish tasted generic the rest of the food... More

• This was an attempt off the main drag. Great food as we ordered the calamari and oysters as to how to rate a restaurant. The calamari was out of this world. Never had items so lightly battered. We waited for 1 ½ and it was truly worth the wait. Husband ordered the mussels and never had them so good... More

We (family of 4) loved it. Great food at a good price. I would highly recommend it. I heard it gets crowded later in the day so go for lunch (like we did) and you should have no problem getting in. I am not a big sea food lover but I loved it. Its a bit of a drive from... More

I had guests from Tulsa, OK and took them to Bimini's for dinner tonight. Everyone had looked forward to going. We waited almost 2 hours before we were seated. We were willing to wait because we were looking forward to our dinner. When we received our meals, we were extremely disappointed. We had looked forward to having shrimp and scallops.... More

We love an oyster bar and we were at the beach so the first thing I did was to go on TripAdvisor and find one. I was excited to see how highly this one was rated and was somewhat disappointed. The raw oysters were tasty and reasonably priced. That was not the disappointing part, but the rest of the meal... More

They understand that preparing great seafood does not have to be heavily fried and greasy. We had fried oysters and asked that they be lightly breaded and lightly fried. Ordered the scallops sautéed. Both were perfect. In place of fries, you can order rice and veggies. Bimini is very casual, busy, and noisy. Waitress, Laura was very friendly and helpful.... More
