It had been many years since I visited Drunken Jacks. I was so pleased to,find that the food was just as delicious if not more so than I remembered. Our server, Jack was so,prompt and efficient without rushing us. That is the perfect description of great service. We all had a different dish and it was all great...and of course,... More

So this review is regarding the relatively rude and uninformed hostess working here Monday night. Our group of 8 gave our name and received a pager being told 1 1/2 to 2 hours. That was fine as there's quite a few places to venture to on foot in the area. When we returned 90 minutes later to check on our... More

By far best restaurant in town. View is great of the inlet and marsh walk along with goat island. Food is great from the steak to the lobster. Hush puppy, mms best I ever had, could be a meal with the salad bar alone. Only caution get there by 5 for no wait, after 6 could be 2 hours .... More

The wait here is long, but worth it. Grab a drink and relax on the huge, fan cooled porch or take a walk out back and soak up the outstanding view. Read about Goat Island and story surrounding it and Drunken Jack on the menu. Small but satisfying salad bar here. We think they have the best she-crab soup and... More

We came to Merrill's Inlet planning to visit a different place when we came upon Drunken Jack's. They had a wait so we grabbed drinks in the deck. The service by Paige was wonderful! She was fast and attentive seeing to all of our needs. We started with an appetizer and ended up staying on the deck for the rest... More

Yes there will be a wait. But there will be live music, yummy drinks and mostly likely a cool breeze and a great view of goat island and the inlet if you sit out in the covered deck while you wait. And there will be a big basket of delicious hush puppies and honey butter waiting for you when you... More

Can't say enough about Nichole and her patience. She helped plan an awesome luau-themed party, was there early to help with decorating, and then oversaw serving a great menu. The mini crab cakes, pulled pork and fried shrimp were especially tasty. Nichole even went out of her way to help arrange a fire dance show. All we had to do... More

Great place for atmosphere, dining and service away from the grand strand and all the busy bustle from tourist season. Reasonable prices for good food and good sized portions. Murrells inlet is a grest area just off the more populace area of the grand strand. Mark it one of the places to go and explore.

Loved Drunken Jacks! Rode the boats next door then popped in for lunch. The salad bar was fresh and delish! The view of the Marsh was lovely as well!
