The wait was over 45 minutes so we walked around and found the outside gazebo ordered couple drinks and enjoyed the view! There was live music that was nice. We played couple games with the corn hole. There is also an outside playground which is great for kids to work off little energy. We ordered appetizers; lobster macaroni and cheese... More

The drinks were great and the food even better. All of us enjoyed our dinner in a very fun, lively restaurant. Our server was great and we couldn't have had a better time. It was a long wait without a reservation (summer time still), but worth every minute.

Well, it was our first day of vacation and since it was my birthday, I chose the Hot Fish Club! My favorite restaurant in Murrels Inlet! It didn't disappoint. Fresh grouper grilled was great!!! Marsh walk...live music outside...can't beat this place!

We were able to get a party of 8 in with no reservation on a weeknight around 5:30 p.m. Having been a loyal Russell's customer I wanted to see if the Hot Fish Club was just as good and it was. The only disappointment was no basket of hush puppies on the table, but the food was very good and... More

This was probably my 20th+ visit here as it is/was my favorite restaurant when I come to the area. I was alone this time because of a short trip and came without my family and sat at the bar. I had HORRIBLE service. The bar was pretty full but that didn't seem to be the issue. I was the o... More

The food was good but we had to shout across the table at each other. Two cross toddlers didn't help.

Dinner with my wife while down south. The area is loaded with fine restaurants. But it can be hit or miss. This place is on my best list! The food was excellent along with the service. The value and portions made it even better.

After the glowing reviews, and its rating in USAToday as one of the top 50 places in the country for seafood, we very excited for our first visit to Hot Fish Club. We made a reservation for the last night of our vacation, expecting it to be the dining highlight of our trip. Unfortunately it didn't live up to the... More

Let me start off by saying I'm from Dallas. Our food scene is over the top...seriously. So, I am probably a little more critical than the average bear. First off, I think our server had too many tables. I've waited tables and it's a tough job to start with without being put in a situation that you can't manage well.... More

Went with large family group so wait was 90 minutes but the food was great. Key we learned is for a group (ours was 10) was to call for a reservation 2-3 days a head Some had ribeye and liked it. I had the signature ciopino and the clam soup. This was last night and no illness so far
