I went here with my husband based on TripAdvisor reviews. I expected a loud local crowd in a casual environment and great seafood. We got the first two, but the seafood was not good. We shared Oysters Rockefeller for an appetizer. They were fresh, but lacked flavor compared to others we've enjoyed. We both ordered the grouper from the grill... More

If you like to be around plenty of people with an energized surroundings then you will like Bimini's. Good selection of food, good selection of beer and local hangout. Only draw back is parking can be a problem. A must to dine then decide for yourself.

Started with peel-and-eat shrimp - excellent. Then mixed grill catch-of-the-day of blackened salmon and grouper - also excellent. Service very good, even with our big group.

At first, was skeptical because I was super hungry and all-u-can eat buffets are everywhere in Myrtle Beach. A friend of mine, knowing how much I like good quality seafood, told me to skip the buffets and recommended we give Bimini's a try and I am so glad I listened to him! Honestly, for the price - we wound up... More

A colorful relaxed place with lots of beer and amazing seafood. Friendly service, great atmosphere. A little off the beaten path but easy to find, really.

This place can get a bit packed with the locals so during peak hours be prepared to wait. It's a perfect dive spot for seafood. I didn't get anything other than beer, oysters and oyster shooters here. Raw oysters on the half shell were great here. During happy hour they're 25% off 4p-6p!

They have the best shrimp and oysters in SC. The place gets extremely loud late into the evening so unless you want a headache, go eat early.

The oysters were smaller than the last time we were here. It's atmosphere is that of a local seaside bar. The taste was ok.

I have tried the fried oysters at a number of places in Myrtle Beach and these are by far the best. Crispy, not greasy and freshly made. I get a dinner to go. Twenty bucks, ten minutes and your good to go. Somewhere around 18-24 various size oysters with fries, slaw, and hushpuppies. The place is a local hangout bar,... More

Our hotel recommended this place and we were really glad we came. The servers are super quick and friendly, portions are huge, tons of friend food and steamed seafood to choose from. It's rough if you're a vegetarian there but they are good at their specialties: fried and steamed seafood. Fries were super greasy (to the point that they were... More
