“Good, and very busy, but not sure what all the fuss is over...”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 27, 2013

...except that I've been in MB for more than a couple hours by now. Bimini's was our first eating experience in Myrtle Beach. it was very, VERY busy and we were in a hurry, so we ended up ordering shrimp to go. The food was good, although a little bland. The staff was very nice and helpful. The environment wasn't at all what we were looking for at the time, but if you like a noise, sports-bar / happy-hour-ish environment... or at least don't mind being stuck in it... this place is fine. I didn't see why all of the reviews were so great until I spent some more time in MB, which is full of chains and poor-quality, tourist-preying eateries. I guess the bottom line is that I'd most likely be back to give it a 2nd chance. A side note, my one annoyance, however, is that their suggested tips are 20, 25, and 30%. Really!?!?!? I mean service was fine, but 30%!?!?

“wonderful tuna-perfection”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 20, 2013

We were vacationing in Myrtle Beach and read trip advisor review on Bimini's Oyster Bar. Decided to go... WOW. I got the Wasabi Tuna-cooked to perfection. Mouthwatering good. It is a dish I will always remember. My husband got the blackened grouper. It was also wonderful. Seasonings were definately there. Would recommend this place to anyone who is looking for a great meal. This seems to be a local hangout place. Causal and the service was out of this world. Very attention to detail.
In summary, just a cool,local place to hang out and have a few beers... or sprite... and relax. If you are looking for a great meal for the money-look no more.... You found it here.

“Excellent place for seafood!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 14, 2013

We actually decided to check out this place based on fellow tripadvisor reviews. Definitely a good choice. The place was packed so we had a drink at the bar. Service was excellent, all the staff was friendly. We had a dozen oysters on the half shelf, 1/2 lbs of shrimp and 1 lb of crab legs. Everything was fresh, delicious, portion size was great! Would absolutely come back again!!

“Best Seafood in Myrtle Beach!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 10, 2013

Best seafood in Myrtle Beach!

This place is a must for our group each and every time we visit the beach. Their selection and quality is unmatched in Myrtle Beach. You will not be disappointed if you give this place a chance, but once you do be prepared to become a frequent visitor!

We began with 2 dozen oysters—Clean/Fresh, and all the usual sides you expect. Without a doubt the best oysters we had in Myrtle Beach.

We then ordered a pound of broiled shrimp for the entire group. The shrimp themselves are very large and they do an excellent job with the seasoning. We went thru these very quickly!

For an entrée my wife and I went with the seafood combo—Fried scallops and shrimp. This comes with fries and hushpuppies. The amount of food they give you is amazing! I also like the fact that the food is fried, but in no form or fashion does it overpower the flavor/taste.

For the amount of business this place does the waiters and waitresses have always been outstanding. Very friendly and frequent your table often. Food is served in a timely manner as well.

Be prepared to wait for seating and most times it’s in the neighborhood of 30+ minutes. You will be waiting outside in the parking lot/bar area, but there are always numerous people to mingle with and the atmosphere is enjoyable.

Find this place and give it a try…… Best seafood in town!
