We stopped in here for lunch and really enjoyed it. We sat out on the front porch which was a block off of the ocean. The scenery was great and the service was also very good. We all had different baskets, fried cod, fried catfish, fried flounder and fried clams. For side items we had coleslaw, fries and onion rings.... More

Went with several family members aged 7-80 while visiting the Surfside Beach/Myrtle Beach area. We all tried different baskets from the lunch menu: catfish, clam strips, chicken tenders, and creek shrimp. Several of the older members of our family shared a basket in order to keep from overeating as the portions are generous. All baskets come with fries, and we... More

We had a pleasant lunch here. We arrived right after they opened, so we were the first guests. Waitresses were very pleasant. We sat outside on the deck which was quite nice. Very rustic sort of place, picnic tables. Although not "on the beach" you can see the ocean from the deck. We had salads, fried pickles, crab cakes poorboy... More

Our server Bobby came "Big Dawg" platters! Two of our party chose the Baby Back Rib Platter and it was served with fries, coleslaw and baked... More

Great place to eat. Very casual with a nautical theme. Staff was friendly and the portions were fairly large. Would definitely go back.
