The best blackened fish tacos, good buffalo wings and pina coladas. Sits directly on the inlet great waterviews and part of Marsh Walk, (a group of restaurants connected by a boardwalk.). This is a great casual place to go, with good music, sometimes a band.

Service was slow, and the fact that bums were hanging out of shorts was totally reprehensible, no family wants to see that. What do I say to my child when he say's oh I see her butt! You went from one extreme to the other.

Had a great lunch of fried shrimp, potato salad and hush puppies. I couldn't get enough of the shrimp and hush puppies during our week long trip so I had it at least 4 times at different restaurants. Sooo good! I'm from a Southern family and spent my childhood in the South and miss this type of cooking.

The chili cheeseburger was not good and neither was the nacho plate. Nobody in our party was very happy with their food. The shrimp and grits and fried pickle chips were probably the best things we tried. We did have excellent service and she didn't charge us the automatic 18% for parties of 6 or more. Our drinks never got... More

Went there with three friends, service was slow and food was below average. Server made mistakes on 3 of 5 orders. Any request for a condiment, glass for beer, or a box for leftovers (which were removed from table) were ignored. This one is off the list. Prices on bill did not match the menu.

We've eaten at every restaurant in the area, and the food a Creek Ratz is hard to beat. The shrimp is amazing - fried or grilled. Great appetizers and crab cakes, but it is hard to go wrong with anything on the menu. Fabulous views and location, and wonderful entertainment most nights.

First visit to a Murrells Inlet Restaurant for lunch. There are numerous places to go and will be reviewing more over the next couple of months. Creek Ratz was a great place for lunch, nice view of the water and the goats, with a nice outdoor seating area both covered and uncovered. Service was excellent. Good assortment on the menu,...

We ate at a different restaurant each night of our vacation, and this was our favorite for sitting outside on the patio. However, the food was nothing special and the menu seemed very limited.
