Lee's Inlet is a great seafood restaurant. We go at least once every time we vacation in Surfside. They have an early dining menu from 3:00-5:30 pm. We got there at 5:00 and did not have any trouble getting seated with our party of eight. The food was delicious and the service was great. They have a great kids menu,... More

We went to Lee's Inlet Kitchen for our 30th anniversary and really enjoyed the food. Had great service as well. We had the grilled flounder, shrimp, and scallops and it was all excellent. Entree came with a salad and choice of side, which I got the baked potato. This place is a bit quieter than the other seafood restaurants, which... More

Lee's has been serving up consistently good food for years. They are family owned and it has a loyal following. We have gone for years and although the decor is dated and the crowd is older, the food is good and the service is good. They have added a nice bar but their prices have gone up as well. I... More

We walked right in and sat at a high top near the bar, no waiting, in the prime of dinner hours during our vacation. The she-crab soup was a draw for us, having read an article in a Southern Living magazine that rated them the best at the beach. The soup is not a disappointment, but it is just richer... More

Every time we come to the SC beaches, we come to Lee's. The menu is pretty simple, but everything is good. Amazing that ther is always a line waiting to get in. We waited for 30 min when we arrived at 6:00' and looks like the same line was waiting. To get in at 8:00.

Third third visit in the last four years and once again very impressed. This is old-school seafood restaurant. Cocktail sauce and tartar sauce served in large aluminum caddies, small round hush puppies that are the equivalent of corn meal doughnuts, the best she crab soup in the area, near perfect service, early dining menu and bar specials (but you have...

We have gone to Lee's every vacation for years and are never disappointed! Onion rings and homemade blue cheese dressing are both incredible. Grilled shrimp and scallops are my personal favorite, but have tried other things and everything is consistently delicious, and service is always great!
