This shop has all kinds of gifts to take back or just for yourself. Right in the heart of Murrell's Inlet across from the restaurants and boardwalk it will give you the chance to find something interesting to take home. It does have breakables so if you have young children you will have to keep a close eye on them

Very nice clean shop. Friendly staff, offered me water when I came in. Not your wings store.this has cool gifts from well made cloths to wall hangings to jewelry. A must stop if you want quality gifts. Large store and plenty of parking.

This store has a lot of cute stuff., different from a lot of the Myrtle Beach shops. We spent a fun hour checking things out. My wife got a beautiful Vera Bradley bag that is just perfect and will also hold her iPad when necessary.

Great selection of items. They carry Vera Bradley and Tervis! I loved that their shirts actually said Murrell's Inlet. All the other shops said Myrtle Beach or Garden City Beach.

Every year I look forwarded to visiting the Lazy Gator, it is/was one of my favorite shops! The complimentary water is always very nice. However, the place is in bad disrepair, as if nobody cares. It made me really sad this trip. The carpet and floor is in VERY bad disrepair. Trash was laying on the floor in different areas... More

I'm so sorry that you felt that way, Every morning we go around and pick up trash, vacuum and dust, It is a never ending process. We also have multiple trash cans around the store so people can throw trash away. Cleanliness and maintenance are things that are very important to everyone who works here. Again I am sorry that...

The Lazy Gator is a large gift and souvenir shop located just across from the Marsh Walk in Murrells Inlet. In addition to the inescapable Chinese made trinkets marked for the local area, there is actually a decent collection of locally produced items scattered throughout the store. There is a fudge counter with a good selection of tasty things I... More

The gift shop is full of cheap souvenirs but the fudge is awesome! Buy a pound for $15 and get the second pound at half off. Samplers available of 6 different kinds, 4 oz each. Great gift idea to take home to family and friends if you don't eat it all before you get home!!
