A fun location along the marsh walk, but food is average and mediocre. Service is friendly...am guessing the bar is a bigger attraction.

The place is a little hole in the wall stuck between two large restaurants, but I ate probably one of the best sandwiches I've ever had. A BLT with local shrimp on a soft ciabatta bun. The bun was soft but had a crunchy interior after being browned on a grill top. Leaf lettuce, fried green tomatoes (!), crispy hickory... More

On past trips to Myrtle Beach, we had driven down to the Marsh walk in Murrells Inlet, SC. We stumbled upon Bubbas a few years ago & sat outside & watched the goats as we ate. Some how, my husband remembered this place as he had an oyster po-boy the first time & he remembered how much he loved it.... More

We went here on a recommendation and loved it! The entire vibe is laid back and casual. The view of the inlet is perfect for relaxing. Our server was extremely friendly and attentive. The food was great! Between the four of us we had shrimp, fish tacos, the Mahi sandwich, and the chicken sandwich. ALL of our dishes we fantastic.... More

We stopped here for a quick drink and appetizer and were very pleased. Everyone loved their drinks and the mozzarella sticks were amazing.

Average food, small portions and overpriced. We got the shrimp cocktail for $10. Received 5 rather small shrimp. We won't be back.

The food is great prepared by Capt. Daves next door but this shack doesn't even have a bathroom! You have to go next door upstairs. We won't be back.

This very cool spot is right next to Drunken Jack's. This is one of the best little beach bars on the inlet. It is colorful, quaint, and has a great beach vibe. You can sit indoors, or outside on the picnic tables, or take a drink and rock on their colorful rockers on the inlet boardwalk. I had the grilled... More

We were in our swimsuits/cover-ups and wanted some good food for lunch but weren't dressed right for most places....found this place as we were driving along and we really liked it. Nice view, we sat outside along the marsh, and the fun, casual atmosphere was just what we needed. Kids' menu was good, although we thought pricey, but prices were... More

We had to get up really early to be at the kayak rental for 07:30. But that was ok, after a long morning we decided to have something light and a nice cold beer it was the perfect place to sit and relax they have some rocking chairs out in front of the water and it was just perfect everyone...
