My husband and I booked a table for Thanksgiving Night, and we were absolutely blown away by the food and the service.

We had the Thanksgiving Feast, which comprised mountains of turkey and ham, mashed potatoes, mashed sweet potato with pecans, sage dressing, cranberry sauce, baby carrots and broccoli with cheese. Everything was made from scratch.

There was so much food served that I took home most of the ham, which fed us both for 2 more meals! We were then offered either Pumpkin or Pecan Pie. We took home 2 pieces of pumpkin pie, which was 'to die for'.

Kate was our server, and she was fantastic. Nothing was too much trouble, and she was attentive, but not intrusive. She was the dream server.

Not only will we go back there again; we will be taking our friends there, so that SWC can become their new go-to restaurant as well!

Oh, and by the way, the cost for this magnificent feast - $20 per person. You could not cook all that food - and everything tasted great - for $20 per person!

If you haven't tried Salt Water Creek Café, you are missing the best restaurant around!

The Beauty and I ate there Sunday night. It has been a couple years since we ate there. Menu has changed a lot. No more thanksgiving turkey dinner. When we arrived we noted the old sushi bar to our left was still there. Instead of a couple Asians there was what appeared to be a Hasidic Jew with long hair and a long beard. Would never order sushi with that look. Our sever was Courtney and she was friendly and very attentive - top notch. We both ordered the special of fried chicken. We also shared the fried oysters and green tomatoes. They were very good but the sauce tasted like straight French mustard. The fried chicken special was three pieces of chicken. Leg, thigh and breast came with mashed potatoes and cold slaw. A good buy for $13. Unfortunately the seasoning on the chicken was a poor voice of spices. Hard to believe anyone could s dew up fried chicken but they have. The chicken itself was perfect but the coating stunk. Check out KFC or Cracker Barrel and see how it's done. The mashed potatoes are not smooth and were extremely cold. The cole slaw was just cabbage. No carrots. The sauce was watery white neither creamy nor vinegary. Either would have been better. Simple basic comfort food that was barely acceptable. Dinner came with a Dixie cup of ice cream. Rather ice milk and so frozen nothing but ice crystals. Better work on a new chicken breading or batter and make sure the vegetables are hot. Simple comfort food is always in demand if done right.

We have been to SWC several times and the reason we keep coming back are the Oyster Shooters. My wife and I love ousters on the half shell but the way they serve their oysters is different. They come in a shot glass with a very small splash of vodka and a dab of cocktail sauce. Of course you can get them without the vodka if you wish. I rarely go there and do less that 11/2 doz. Between my wife and I usually 3 doz. The service there is excellent and the staff is very friendly and professional. We especially enjoy chatting with the bartender Bob. While we haven't sampled everything on the menu as of yet every dish that we have tried has been very good including Appetizers and desserts. I would recommend SWC to anyone visiting Murrells Inlet. We are fortunate that we live in the area so we can go anytime we desire.

This was such a fabulous dinner we are going tomorrow for the Saturday night special: Lobster! I had the Crab Cakes and they were the best ever! Lots of crab very little fillers. The others had Mojito Chicken, loved it. Blackened fish, loved it, Short Ribs, loved it, and Fish and Chips, loved it. I also has the Crab Soup, and it was to die for. This is must place to eat! The staff was very friendly. They also had some live entertainment.

Loved the experience! From the appetizers to the dessert - everything was excellent. Returning tomorrow for the Saturday special - 1# of lobster for only $19! A must if you're in the area!
