Be, it's really cold for $3.00, dozen oysters $12.95 melt in your month good. Fried fish was outstanding, a place where the locals gather, quick service, parking is ok and free. A must stop if your in Myrtle Beach.

Went to Bimini's last week. You can not beat the shrimp cocktail for the quality and price. The only reason I did not give it 5 stars is I found something crunchy in my crab cakes. I was afraid I had broken a tooth but luckily had not.

This was a great little restaurant in a small strip mall. Great seafood, hush puppies and sides were delish; drinks of all kinds and the service was awesome. Would go back in a heartbeat. Left my credit card behind, they took care of it and mailed it back to me. We were a group of eight and needed separate checks,... More

We got the seafood pot and we absolutely loved it! The food was fresh and the crab legs melt in your mouth! The only thing I would say is if you have a pretty good appetite, you may want to order a seafood pot per/person. 😅 Maybe we were just greedy! Anyway this was my second visit and I will... More

Great local place where fun and people mix. Eat on benches and throw shells in a tub. Food is good. Love the hush puppies. Steam shrimp is my favorite but many like the oyster steamer pot. Usually a wait in the season.

Looking at other reviews, it appears you really like it or really don't. I am in between. The irony of this place is that it has the atmosphere of a very loud bar and the price of a high end sea food restaurant. The food is good and very generous. Our server was great. She was friendly and very attentive.... More

This is a great place. Seafood is local and delicious. They are well known for the oyster shooters! For dinner our group had fried oysters, fried shrimp, and fried flounder. There hushpuppies and slaw are very good. For desert I had key lime pie. Prices are reasonably.

I really hate not to give a stellar review of this place. The people were SO nice and friendly and the service was excellent. The restaurant had a cool, local vibe to it. But the food was just average. My fried oysters were pretty good, but the crab cakes were very overdone. The hushpuppies were inedible, in my opinion. The... More

Over cooked, tough shrimp, had it three different ways, all below average. Was a meal you could get in Iowa, below what you expect from the beach. Have eaten here before, food quality keeps going down. Would skip this place for fresh, tender seafood.
