“Good food, Great prices, Friendly Staff”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 9, 2014

Stopped here for dinner our first night in Myrtle Beach, and glad we did. My wife and I wanted seafood and this was a great place to get it. Lively atmosphere, great crowd and nice friendly staff. We both started with oysters from the raw bar. Nice and fresh and sweet. My wife had the Grilled Seafood Kabobs and I stuck with the oyster theme and had the Fried Oyster platter. Everything was great.

“Great time and great food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 8, 2014

This was our first time at Bimini and we had great time. Our server, Christie, was delightful and helpful and even attentive in spite of how jam packed this place was. We went for an earlyish dinner, my husband had grilled lemon-pepper salmon and I had the fried oyster platter. Everything was fresh and tasty and both were cooked perfectly. The salmon was flaky and flavorful but not "fishy" and the fried oysters were tender inside and crispy outside. The breading was light and had great flavor. It's a "good-time" place with a mix of locals and vacationers, all laughing and having a great time. The bar crowd seemed lively and the general feel of the place is like a huge beach party. I will tell friends and family to check this place out and to expect a really casual dining experience. The prices are spot of for the type of place this is and super affordable for the quality and quantity of the food you get.
Next time we are in the area I hope to return to Bimini with family and friends looking for great food at good prices and a really good time.

“Back Again”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 7, 2014

Back again and was once again the highlight of our dining during our vacation. Steam pot cooked to perfection and the fried food was great as usual. Every time we are in MB we stop at Bimini's.

“Awesome Local Place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 6, 2014

We really liked this place! It has a dark casual bar feel with lights and sea pictures painted on the wall and picnic tables or tables with lawn chairs to sit in. I gave it four stars instead of the five because of the F-bombs being thrown out of a tipsy lady's mouth in front of my two young girls in the bathroom. My Husband ordered the grouper sandwich and a dozen oysters. Half fried half on the shell. All was very good. I ordered the full lb of crab legs. Again Awesome.. Very fresh. When I broke the shells they just pulled right out. I also ordered a cup of the New England clam chowder, no Bueno! So the waiter replaced it with the Manhattan clam chowder and that was very good.. We are glad that we opted for this place versus a seafood bar. We'll definitely be back again next year.
