“Not the Ritz, but the food was excellent.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 4, 2010

Went mid week in late August. From the outside and first impression inside it didn't look like a dream, yet it was packed. The five of us decided to try the mussels and the shrimp with heads appatizer. They were deliscious! For dinner I had broiled scallops that were melt in your mouth. The crab cakes were rich and plentiful! Our server was Andrea and she was fabulous to us. we will definately be coming back on our next trip.

“worst service ever”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 10, 2010

Crab legs were absolutely amazing. Had Kristen as our server and had to wait 30 minutes before she even approached us at our table. We had to ask someone if we had a server. She did not acknowledge specials, soups, etc... was completely awkward, and didn't even bother offering us dessert before she slaped the check on the table. This was the first time I have not tipped someone... she barely earned the buck we left.

“Excellent seafood!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 2, 2010

We went to Bimini's with friends on a recent trip. It is a locals restaurant, and I can see why they go there. I had the sauteed scallops and friend shrimp- excellent! Breading was very light on the fried shrimp. Hush puppies were awesome! They also make homemade chips which were very good. We went early (5:00) and had no trouble getting a table. Within 30 minutes there was a long line. It is quite loud, but with 2 small kids, that's OK with us. Food took a long time to get, but it was worth the wait!

2nd time there the food wasn't quite as good, but still worth the trip. I will definitely go back to Bimini's when we return to Myrtle Beach.

“Great food and atmosphere”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 28, 2010

We had a great dinner here. They do have some healthier (none fried) options to choose from. I had grilled grouper, which was great. My husband loved the crab legs. They had live music, which was nice. You can definitely take kids here, though going a little earlier would be better because there is less of a wait.
