“It has it all”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 17, 2013


This place has it all. I mean, whatever you're looking for, you'll find it somewhere in the store. There are several levels, so don't forget to find steps to next level.

The Gay Dolphin is very popular. It's been around for many many many years. It is located right in the heart of Myrtle Beach. Near the spirits will.

“Very disappointing”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 28, 2013 via mobile

Had heard this was a must on the trip. It is a huge store with layers of floors and items. Some look very old and have years of dust on them to prove their age and some items are modern and new. Prices were high but, not for a tourist souvie store. Store was dirty and did not get a friendly word from anyone working there the entire hour we were in there. I guess it is an icon and in its day may have been great. We were not impressed and bought our souvies at other Myrtle Beach Stores.
