We love this place....sit outside and enjoy the view. I had steamed shrimp and my husband had the fresh catch of the day and it was awesome. We always go every time we are at the beach!

Met friends on the deck for lunch on a warm July day. The shade from the sun screens made sitting by the waterway a pleasant experience. We all had fish sandwiches which were fried and delicious. The fried corn on the cob (yes - deep fried corn) was sweet and buttery and a treat! Come here every summer - always... More

I've lived in the North Myrtle Beach area for over 20 years now and Crab Catchers is our family's favorite place for seafood - hands down. Good food with great, laid back atmosphere is why we always bring friends and family here time after time. I recommend the fried scallops, but you can't go wrong with their fried shrimp, grilled...

One of our favorite Little River SC places to eat. I've always heard that the local's out of the way places are best, and this is it! Seafood is very good, and you have to get the fried corn on the cob!! The outside deck is right over the intracoastal waterway which makes for fantastic views!

One of my favorite places to eat. Best deviled crab in the area and you gotta try the deep fried corn on the cob!

Good atmosphere but so so food, I got the fish tacos which were supposed to include mango salsa but definitely had no mango in it. Also the amount of flounder was very small and over cooked for the price. I wouldn't choose this restaurant again. I

This quaint little restaurant is FANTASTIC! Beautiful views as it sits along the Little River. We have been going to Myrtle Beach for 15 years and we always set aside one night (sometimes two) to have dinner at this place. The food is to die for. The grilled scallops are the best I've ever had...EVER!. And the deep fried corn... More
