Return at least twice a year!

We spend the winters in Myrtle Beach and eat at Rockefellers at least twice during that time, not bad when you consider we have our own home and kitchen here.

Fresh oysters with a 55 cent happy hour are delicious as is the fresh hot crab dip. The steamed pot filled with crab, mussels, clams, shrimp, crawfish, corn and new potatoes is a sea food lovers heaven. All seafood can be done steamed, broiled, blackened or fried. Great shore atmosphere and the service extremely friendly. Rockefellers definitely has a local/your... More

Have visited Rockefellers on numerous occasions over the last 10 years. Yesterday we drove from Pawleys Island for lunch. We recommend sitting in the comfortable captain's chairs at the bar where you can enjoy watching the game or have a conversation with the friendly bar tender/waitress. You can watch them prepare the steamed seafood in the bar side steamers. I... More

Been here a couple of time through the years and more then enjoyed myself every single time. All the Appetizers are great especially the Rockefeller. Anything goes with the entrees as well. You won't go wrong.

One of my favorites when I'm in the area. From thier steam bar to thier apps, the food is consistantly delicious. If you're lucky you can see the Man, the Myth, the Mike behind the bar providing a good story or a joke. If you're really lucky, he'll give you a big glass of "shut the f' up!". Good stuff!

This place is a can't miss for happy hour Oysters. We have gone several times and they are always good. They vary in size but seems to be pretty normal in Myrtle Beach. They are always fresh and my husband and I really enjoy spending happy hour with Rockefellers.

This is gonna cost you. There is no cheap lunch here. The food was good, but for the cost it left a bad taste in my mouth.

I was highly disappointed in this restaurant. We went during happy hour to get the .55 cent oysters. i stack every oyster in one shell they were so tiny. We ordered a 12 ounce Sam Adams draft and were charge$6.00 per draft during happy hour. We were told it is an import. Horrible experience.

Thank you for coming in and trying our Oysters. We strive to find the best we can and can only buy what is available and look to many different suppliers. The size of the oyster depends on the oyster beds and when they are harvested. We don't grow them (wish we could,but if we did we'd probably name them and... More
