Not ever eaten there; we stopped by Creek Ratz to give it a go. Well I'm glad we did!SHAZAM! Super great fish sandwich for lunch. All you can eat fresh fried shrimp were off the chain! We will be back!👍👍👍

The food we ordered was terrible. We returned the clam chowder because it was really just celery soup. My raw oysters were sandy, very small and expensive. My wife had the crab cake on toasted kaiser, the crab cake was wafer thin, the kaiser was a hamber bun that was not toasted, it was simple stale. The sweet potato fries... More

I am only giving this place two stars. The reason for the two stars was the service was fair. The food is greasy and the restaurant does not appear to be clean. There is nothing here I would recommend. It appears to appeal to the bar crowd instead of the dinner /lunch crowd. There are plenty of more better choices... More

We really enjoy eating at Creek Rats and try to have lunch every time we are at the beach. The DAT after Thanksgiving was very warm so we could sit outside and enjoy the view and people watch. The oyster platter was perfectly prepared and greatly enjoyed.

Atmosphere was great being in inlet and all. We were a bit disappointed in the food.. fries tasted freezer burned, chicken fingers were ok, my husbands fish sandwich was not much to write home about probably frozen fish (it had real fishy smell). We pretty much figure it is a great place to drink then order food type of place,... More

We head down to the Marsh Walk every fall and make sure to include Creek Ratz each time. Good food and friendly service. Be sure to see Monica at the inside bar. Entertainment is never a disappointment.

Food wasn't bad, though nothing special in my book. The real treasure here was the live music and people watching. A great place to get a feel for the area and enjoy a fun evening.

We always visit Creek Ratz when we go to Myrtle Beach. This was our first time going in the off season and it was a little chilly but our server offered to turn on the outdoor heaters so we could still enjoy that seating. Delicious food and friendly service. I had the fried crab cake sandwich with sweet potato fries,... More

Having patronized Crazy Ratz annually since 2010 we eagerly traveled from Myrtle Beach to Murrells Inlet anticipating oysters and clams, and seafood po' boys. How disappointed we were today to enter a nearly empty restaurant. Open seating outdoors welcomed us to the pleasant afternoon. A young waitress took our order, having not offered the specials of the day. A dozen... More
