“Wonderful dinner”
Reviewed December 31, 2013

From the moment we walked in and were promptly seated to the very last shucked oyster, the meal was wonderful. We split the Steam Pot and it was a delight. Very nice blend of seafood and just the right amount for the two of us. I am normally not a huge fan of hush puppies but these were really good with the honey butter they serve and even the slaw was crisp and tasty.

This is a local hang out not a chain place. It isn't fancy, the chairs are plastic patio chairs and it is a bit dark inside, but the service is wonderful and the food even better. If you want cookie cutter uniformity, this is not your place; if you want great seafood, casual, friendly.... This is for you.

“Awesome!!”
Reviewed December 28, 2013

This place was awesome! We came here because people at the conference that we were attending was talking about how great the place was so we had to check it out.

When we got there, a little after 7 on a Wednesday night, the place was PACKED! There was a live band going on and it was just such a great place to enjoy some awesome seafood.

We will def. come back again if we are in the area.

“Nice divey place with great seafood”
Reviewed December 26, 2013 via mobile

We ate here based on reviews and a wish for raw oysters. The happy hour is a great deal -- half price oysters that are already cheap. We had about 15 each of these (the "dozen"); they are briney local oysters, mid-sized and very fresh. Sweetie had the deviled crab with slaw and fresh chips, and pronounced it very good. I had a fried oyster salad, which was about 10 plump fried oysters on a tossed salad. Very good. A small selection of beers on top, including Yuengling.

“Wanted to like it...”
Reviewed December 26, 2013

The food was very good-the hushpuppies, roasted oysters, crab legs, and key lime pie. But the table was SO grimy, and the floors, doors, and walls too. If they would give the place a good cleaning once a week, they would get more return customers. I told my teen daughter, "just pretend you are in a little beach bar in the Caribbean." I am just leery of kitchen cleanliness when the service area is not clean. But it was very busy this Christmas week.

“Great fresh seafood”
Reviewed December 20, 2013 via mobile

Ate here twice. Happy hour oysters were great and fresh. Second time had grouper bites and shrimp and chips. Fresh not heavy breading and hot. Excellent. Great key lime pie. Will be added to visit every trip to myrtle beach. Good job
