The place was packed, the dance floor full. Really good band the night we were there. This place is more for young people.

Went there on Christmas Day with friends. Food was amazing. And a lot of it. Allysa was our waitress and she did a great job suggesting different plates since it was our first time there. Seafood was great. Lobster pan pie was excellent. Salads were big and fresh. Service was wonderful. One of my new favorite resturaunts.

After frequenting the Murrell's Inlet area for over 20 years, we finally tried The Hot Fish Club. It definitely is one of the best! On the recommendation of our excellent server, I tried the lobster pot pie. It had several chunks of lobster, and lots of shrimp and scallops. It was really good. I did miss having some kind of...

This is one of our favorites. The steam pot is always good and is really the only thing we order when we visit. A little pricey but normal for the Inlet and seafood. Service is good and the seafood fresh and perfectly prepared. Consistently good.

Living just a couple miles away, we have tried most all of the Marsh Walk and Murrells Inlet seafood places. On New Years Eve we had visitors and I tried to make reservations at several of the "usual places" with no luck. Checking Trip Advisor I saw good reviews on the Hot Fish Club and called for reservations. They were... More

Food was delicious. The seafood chowder was excellent as well as the pie country boil. Ryan our waiter was the best. Made reservations and was seated as soon as we arrived. Will definitely go back. Highly recommend giving its try.

Every time we visit, the food and service is great. My favorites are the Grilled Grooper and the Peel&Eat Shrimp. The SheCrab soup is also very delicious.

Stopped after the light show at Brookgreen Gardens. Food was very good plus - lobster pie and cioppino (spicy and excellent). Surroundings were modest but nice. No draught beer - a minus. Wine by the glass list was good. Better than other places in Murrell's Inlet that we have patronized.
