We had reservations and as soon as we walked in we were seated. The service was great; the server was very friendly and knowledgeable; and the food was great. The grilled scallops, fried flounder, oysters and shrimp were delicious. I would highly recommend the Hot Fish Club.

Went here on a Saturday night so it was packed. Usually a good sign at a restaurant. It's located down a long strip of restaurants on US17, so there are many choices of restaurants. Biggest complaint may be parking as it is lacking when busy. Got seated quickly and server was over to get drinks and appetizer order quickly. Had... More

My husband and I went in in September. It was packed, but we got a table with little wait and .a friendly hostess. We ordered drinks which were served promptly. Our server was excellent! She was very knowledgeable about the menu and really cared about service. I had crab legs and my husband had the shrimp and grits. The food... More

We have always eaten at Murrells Inlet for the best seafood when in town, but had not been to this location. Was not crowded, we were there at 730pm & also they were not usually open on... More

My husband had the two lobster tail dinner and I had the shrimp, snow crab legs, and Dungeoness crab combo. The food was incredibly good. Best meal I have had in a long time. Loved it! Also, I had a mojito that was very good too. Oh yes, salted caramel cheese cake and coffee was top-notch. I definitely recommend this... More

I had the grouper, with a lobster risotto -- Hubby had the fisherman's platter, currently pictured. The fish was done in calabash style (light breading- cornmeal based) and the oil used was fresh. Lauren, our waitstaff was efficient and helpful. All in all a great meal. Do not let the exterior put you off. This is down home and very... More

Another great find based on the TripAdvisor reviews. We had dinner there last night and it was excellent. The Lobster pie was as good as advertised and my wife said her flounder platter was the best she has had in the two months we have been here. Hkghly recommended.

The food is excellent for the area. Ed is an exceptional server and bartender. We always enjoy going there and having dinner. It's one of our first choices for inlet dining.
