“YUM!”
Reviewed August 22, 2014

Our party of 6 decided to close out a week at the shore with randomly choosing a restaurant "on the water". Crab Catchers in Little River, SC popped up on our GPS and we gave it a try. Previous reviews mentioned unfriendly waiters - but we experienced only good, down-to-earth friendliness from everyone we came in contact with! The special was 3 lbs of Snow Crabs legs for the price of 2 lbs - and they were just about the best we've ever had - seriously - we are crab-eaters and these were wonderful! The only thing that kept this from a top rating was slow service with one of our party who ordered the fried haddock - it was VERY late coming out. The waitress kept us up to date on the situation - but we easily could have been done with the crabs before the haddock came out! Enjoyed an easy evening though. Definitely worth the visit!

“EXCELLENT!”
Reviewed August 11, 2014

Again, a guy running the softball tourney recommended this place. It is off the beaten path - it is right next to a casino boat that goes out daily. It is right on the water and the view was excellent!!! We got the crap legs and they didn't disappoint at all. Great big legs and plenty for the price. The kids got to go watch some guy cleaning and counting fish and they also got to see crabs running around everywhere. They were very much amused. Our waitress DEBBIE (with cute freckles) was awesome and took very good care of us. All her food recommendations were on spot and again, the atmosphere was fabulous! I would high recommend you try this place!!!

“An Experience”
Reviewed August 5, 2014

We LOVE Crab Catchers. Always lots of local "characters", good food and fun place to hang out. The bartender "Maylay" was entertainment itself. Do not go if you are in a hurry as the kitchen is small and always backed up. Highly recommend.

Big crowd , but seated very quickly on peir over the river. Pork chop sandwich and deep fried corn was spot on! The wife was was very happy with salmon. Service was excellent! Reccomend Crab Catchers highly.
