The restaurant had ok food that was overly priced for the quality. We sat outside, so the view was pretty. Decent seafood variety, but almost nothing for people who don't like seafood-so not great for a couple who only one likes seafood.

We made reservations for 6:30 on a Sunday evening, hoping to catch a beautiful sunset. Arrived on time and was seated promptly. Waitress was there immediately for drink orders. Very pleasant an welcoming. Cocktails cost $8.00 but were very good. Our entrees were served promptly and were hot and delicious. We were disappointed in our anticipation for the sunset view....

We found this restaurant online while searching for blackened fish places. Nice place with lots of windows for an excellent water/marsh view. The ocean was on the other side of the street. Husband had the blackened mahimahi and I had a filet. Both were outstanding. A very nice Malbec complemented the dinner and the view. Great service.

Thank you for getting in touch with us. I am sorry to hear that your food was not prepared to your liking. Our early evening menu portion sizes are much smaller than the dinner menu, but the salty oysters are no excuse. Guest satisfaction is our top priority and we pride ourselves in fresh, quality food. While I will pass... More

Every time we come to Myrtle Beach we eat here at least once. The filet mignonette and the fried seafood are excellent choices and if you come before 5:30 all are $14 including a salad. The view is fantastic overlookin the marsh and marina. Always good, friendly service.

As always my number 1 spot. Stop by twice this trip. William (Bill) was our waiter on Monday. Had a young lady on Friday. The staff is always great. Thank you so much for the early evening offer. A full meal at a great price. The view is so beautiful. See you next year.

The she crab soup - the best I ever had! My husband had the oyster shooters and loved them. I had the lobster tail and thought it was cooked perfectly and my husband had the crab cakes and felt the same. The view was stunning! We've been coming to Myrtle Beach for quite a while and don't know why we... More
