My husband and I tried this restaurant and loved it. The food just melted in our mouths. The atmosphere was wonderful and has moved up to our number 1 spot to eat when we visit Myrtle Beach. You can't go wrong with this place. The hush puppies and raspberry butter they serve you before your dinner are delicious!

We visited Dave's after reading the great reviews but were disappointed with our experience. The server got our order wrong and then laughed out loud at me twice for asking for ketchup for my steak fries (people in South Carolina must not eat ketchup with their fries?). The final straw was when our party asked to have the bill split... More

Great fried and grilled seafood at prices lower than neighboring restaurants on the marsh walk. Nothing fancy, just great food and friendly service at a good price.

I went with a friend for lunch. We were seated by a window with beautiful Inlet views, The service was perfect. My friend ordered a cup of soup and Dragon Shrimp, She didn't like the dragon sauce but didn't complain. My Poseidon Salad was delicous.

We stopped here for lunch before we headed out of town. This was a great place! The food was very good, I enjoyed the crab cake and a bloody Mary. We look forward to returning for more food and to enjoy the waterfront view.

We thoroughly enjoyed the outstanding local fare. From our beginning to the very end, the food, atmosphere and the view can't be beat. Starting with our potstickers, they were nicely crisped with a terrific Asian sauce for dipping. On to the main menu, shrimp and grits with gravy, was to die for! Being locally raised, I grew up on the... More

This is a great venue and the food is good as well. We had a table with a clear view of the water and after very hot days there was cool breeze. Four of us stopped for lunch and the food is good. There is beer on tap and the menu offers good variety. We had a burger, chicken caprese... More

I had the crab cakes which were somewhat dry and not very tasty. The mashed potates were good by not very hot. In the party of 6 no one was really overly pleased with their food. Hush puppies with the butter were very good. Crab soup of interesting and good as the crabs were served in the shells. Shrimp dish... More

I live an hr. away from MYB, but, had never visited Murrell's Inlet. We decided to ride down and eat at Dave's. It was about 1pm on a Sunday, perfect time...just in time for brunch. I had the Blueberry Muffin French Toast, my friend had the Mahi Mahi sandwich with steak fries. Everything was delicious and the view was great... More

Was in the area looking for a lunch spot,looked empty ,yet classy,expected it to be pricey,but was not. Since it was very hit,opted to eat inside with a view of the water and boats.Lunch menu had interesting items under $10. My companion had the seafood gumbo and I had the hot crab casserole.
