“Little gem on the inlet”
Reviewed August 7, 2014

Lots of reviews of other bigger, more popular, if you will, restaurants on the inlet. We happened upon this restaurant trying to run to the closest restaurant in a rain storm. As soon as I walked in, I felt transformed back to time. The walls are the most beautiful and soothing blue green. Great views of inlet from most of the tables in the restaurant. The food and service were very good. Key lime pie was pretty good, too. Pricing was a little less expensive than the other restaurants on the inlet. I was very pleasantly surprised by a restaurant that I hadn't seen advertised or recommended by others and I've been to the area several times on vacation.

“excellent food with a view”
Reviewed July 22, 2014

Great food can be difficult to find at myrtle beach. This restaurant is worth the drive. Great seafood and service. View of channel with goats and peacocks. Crab cakes are recommended. Salmon is moist. Good be and wine selection. Waiter was great. A little pricey but worth it.

“Yawn”
Reviewed July 15, 2014 via mobile

Nice atmosphere. Just your average tourist trap. Wife had fried oysters after recommendations from waitress, but were horrible, I had flounder and shrimp which was so-so, may have been better if it was warmer. Portion size just avg. Our waitress was nice and responsive. If this is one of the best in this area, we'll be cooking our own for the remainder of this trip

“Absolutely the worst!”
Reviewed June 30, 2014

Poor service, slow and overcooked my steak and had the audacity to argue with a 52 year old customer that knows the difference between a medium rare and well done steak. Great water views, nice and clean interior, but I WOULD NOT EVER GO BACK, IT WAS THAT BAD!

Huge portions ... Split the fish and grits w/my boyfriend, and we both had more than enough. Nice atmosphere/view. Friendly service.
