We found this restaurant when our regular restaurant was closed for the season. We have been coming to the beach for 40+ years...why didn't we find this sooner?
The waitress, Kim was so friendly and the service was awesome. We felt like we'd found
a old friend. Quant, cozy and very busy. The food was delicious and FRESH. The clam
chowder was the best !!!
We loved it so much we went back later that week =-end for lunch on our way out of town.
It is truly a real GEM! Don't eat anywhere else in Murrells Inlet.

So good we ate there twice in one week. We are Murrell Inlet residents and regret that it took us so long to get in here. First, great FRESH seafood selections on the menu and at very affordable prices. A true GEM in the Restaurant Row Inlet collection of eateries. My first trip w/ with my son and we ate a light lunch. She Crab soup and Clam Chowder with a Clam Casino appetizer to share. Was great all for under $23.

A few days later I returned w/ wife for lunch. We opted for the Lunch Fish Tacho w/ extra taco for $11.90 and the Lunch Flounder Basket. Both came with a side and coleslaw. Wife opted for the mixed corn & black bean and peppers medley. I had the potato salad. Mine was only $9.95.

Both times the hostess and waitstaff were friendly, warm and very attentive. Keshia W and Andrea S were great servers.

We will be back and this is one small place with limited seating that is WORTH the wait for a table on a busy evening. Some of the best value for your hard earned dollar.

Great atmosphere and great food! Hush puppies were awesome too :). Definitely will go back. Crab stuffed grouper was delicious.

Out to dinner the other night with my wife, and let me tell you this place rocks! We loved it! A little crowded but that's what to expect if your eating at a place like this, everyone has to love it! My wife with a small appetite only had a bowl of she crab but she said it was fantastic. I on the other hand had some AWESOME blackened salmon, the fish was fresh and the blackening seasoning was great, it also came with some spicy cream sauce (forget the name) but it was wonderful. Our waitress (Andrea) is the one who recommended this dish to me and very helpful. She had a humorous personality and is very good at what she does, restaurants need more people like her!

This intimate dining area provides seating at several tables or booths. Our waitress was very attentive to our needs and was knowledgeable about the various menu items. The appetizer of spicy steamed shrimp was prepared perfectly with just the right amount of Old Bay seasoning and tender shrimp. The ICH baskets of grouper and of oysters were superb! These came in a light batter coating and were accompanied with freshly cooked French fries and cole slaw (other choices available), all at reasonable prices. An order of hushpuppies was also made and these were surprising light and tasty. These had been recommended by our host as we had not been to this establishment before and we would order them again. We were quite happy that we had dined at the Inlet Crab House.
