We were done in Murrells Inlet for the day, had a taste for grouper and based on reviews, though we'd give this place a shot. Most of the reviews posted raved about the burgers, but like I say, we were looking for grouper. I ordered the grouper finger basket which comes with 4 pieces of fish, cole slaw, and fries... More

Great food and River City. We were looking for a good burger and this place was recommended. The burgers were good and we also got wings - really good! Service was good and the very rustic decor with license plates covering the walls were entertaining to look at while waiting for food. Good place to grab a quick bite -... More

If you would like a really Fine Burger this is the place to stop and be a river rat away from the city and away from the river LOL as you sit by the marsh and Munch down on your amazingly delicious Burger but do watch your server because sometimes they might appear to be overly caffeinated or who knows...

We had the fried green beans and fried mushrooms as appitizers, you will not be disapointed. The Phillysteak sandwich was the main meal. Came with choice of sweat potato waffle fries, regular fries or onion rings with homemade coleslaw. We all left with left over boxes. Sat outside on a beautiful day, service was great. We will be back.

This is a must stop every time I visit. The burgers are worth the drive from Memphis. The place is clean, there's plenty of parking, and the staff is very friendly. We even had a two year old with us, and he enjoyed the French fries. We went early on a Saturday to beat the lunch rush. They were a... More

Great burgers and fries. Amazing sweet tea and the atmosphere is awesome. One of the coolest burger joints I have ever visited. The only thing better than to food is the service. Southern hospitality at its best.
