Enjoyed our meals though they were nothing stellar. A fun place to go with a family because watching the turtles & alligators is entertaining.

“Trip Advisor patrons beware”
Reviewed June 17, 2014

Not as good as others have led on. Don't get me wrong. If you are in the market for a good happy hour or alligator feedings by the lake then enjoy yourself. But, if you want a gourmet meal with good service, than look elsewhere. Our waiter was overwhelmed with a 16 person table. He should have had assistance but didn't. Was hoping for better but was underwhelmed. One plus, good fried oysters and very good fresh baked breads and muffins.

“Just average at best”
Reviewed June 17, 2014

Our food just didn't seem to be fresh. The crab cakes were to perfect to be hand packed, suspect frozen and had no flavor. The scallops in the seafood pasta were chewy. We read the reviews and thought we'd give it a try, mistake. My lemon drop martini was disappointing as well, $10 for lemonade (instant) and vodka. Overpriced and average at best.

“Disappointed in this local icon”
Reviewed June 16, 2014

Party of six, torrential rain/thunder/lightening but we braved it for the sake of our out of town friends. Greated nicely, relaxed in the comfy waiting area til our late-arrivers came in.

Hubby loved his scallops - which they kindly offered to do half broiled, half fried. One friend had crab legs which he said were "all knuckles". I ordered shrip and grits - my favorite. The vegetables were waaay too salty, as were the shrimp and grits which were covered in an overly salty "brown gravy" that tasted like a thick McCormicks packaged gravy mix. I was unable to eat it, and although I was graciously offered an alternate my companions were nearing the end so I declined. I will say the restaurant was apologetic and accomodating and didn't charge for my meal at the end.

Because of the storm, there were literally only 2-3 tables occupied - at opposite ends of this large room. We were seated on the farest side of the room where a small family group with two whiney children were seated. But we saw they were almost done so didn't request a change of seating.

Our server was super great, attentive, friendly throughout. But after serving us drinks and taking our orders, they seated yet another large, noisy family group (maybe a dozen people including unruly children). Now, we don't have anything against families dining out, but in an almost-empty restaurant on a stormy night, there was plenty of opportunity to seat us/them apart from instead of on top of each other.

We had looked forward to a special night out at a Myrtle Beach icon but were sorely disappointed in all but the service. Will try ONE more time someday to see if this is the norm or an exception.

“Best Happy Hour Variety”
Reviewed June 10, 2014

Bar review: Arrive early, best happy hour selection. Be advised the meager beer selection is in the corner, in this "wine" bar. The glasses are generously poured. Even though I was one of the youngest there (I am 59 years old!) the crowd was friendly and accepting.
