My husband and I ate here on our last night in Myrtle Beach. It was Happy Hour so we got some great deals. My husband had the oysters and he said they were great, and the basket of fried shrimp was awesome. We also got grilled shrimp skewers and grilled seafood skewars and enjoyed those as well. The hush puppies are a little too sweet for my taste, but no biggie. The homemade chips needed a little salt, so I salted them. The service was wonderful and the prices (especially the happy hour prices) were great.

Keep in mind that this is a bar, with bar furniture and bar atmosphere. Yes, they have plastic tables, but does it really matter?. I'd rather have plastic tables and good food than have fancy tables and bad food. I can definitely see it getting crowded during the high season so you'll have to decide for yourself whether you want to wait. I don't know if they take reservations.

We will definitely go back on our next trip to Myrtle Beach.

Nothing interesting here. Plastic chairs and picnic tables with fried fish and fried potatoes. Best thing is the array of oysters at half price during happy hour.

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.

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.

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.
