“Great Marshwalk Atmosphere”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 19, 2013

We had a great experience at Creek Ratz last weekend. A great local band played called Pale Horse, the service was exceptional, and the breeze was great. Good food at a reasonable price. Inside and outside seating accommodates everyone. The restaurant was clean and so were the restrooms. Great for families. The pizza was good (not outstanding) and the sandwiches were very good. We will return, especially when there is entertainment.

“Shell with the oysters”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 12, 2013

Just got back. We've been there before and was much better. Was told that the wait was an hour and a half. They wanted a cell phone number to alert our table was ready. We missed their call, probably due to the noise. Waitstaff are newly pubesant, so servicing others isn't high on their priorities. I had a shell fried with my oysters. About the size of a quarter. Thankfully I didn't swallow it, as I would have had to rescue myself. All I got was a "sorry"from our waitress. I used to waiter myself and would have gotten a manager for service recovery and a complimentary meal. I got neither. Ambiance is nice, but last night seem like the geriatric singles night and had to enjoy a family dinner while hearing grey hairs trying to hook up. Food was decent even after a couple beers and starving. Sorry, but that was the last time for this joint. Look elsewhere for a pleasurable dining experience. With the many places at murrells inlet, this place may change to another genre soon. Drunken Jacks is awesome, but you pay for it.

“Go somewhere else. This is the weakest link of the Murrells Inlet seafood restaurants.”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 12, 2013 via mobile

Dined here today with a party of eleven. Creek Ratz is probably an enjoyable place to go if you plan to drink heavily enough that you don't care how your food tastes. Bland and greasy fried seafood, hopelessly overcooked grilled seafood, and haphazard service. The restaurant could use a good cleaning from floor to ceiling. You have much better choices right next door.

“Cool Breeze, Great View, Music and Food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 11, 2013 via mobile

Six of us went to Creek Ratz for a few drinks and dinner. The relaxed atmosphere, great seafood and service made for a nice evening. They did not rush us at all even though there was about a 45 minute wait. I would highly recommend the crab cakes and fish tacos!
