I treated my daughter and granddaughters to lunch here. We decided to eat outside since it was an unusually beautiful day for January. There were many already seated outside. The table was very dirty with outdoor dirt and sand, so we wiped it as best we could with napkins. The staff saw us doing this and never offered to assist.... More

Neat little place where u can sit outside and look across at an island that has goats and peacocks. You can watch the boats go by. When I was there they had live music and it was a talented man with a guitar.. just a chill and relaxed place to have a beer. I ordered the goat cheese salad and... More

After eating here on our last visit to Murrels Inlet, we made sure to come back for more great seafood! I kept it simple choosing the fried flounder, which was great! The wife's shrimp were also delicious! Do know that they do allow smoking in the restaurant as it is often open air. The week of Thanksgiving they had everything... More

Went to have a few drinks while waiting on friends and this is a typical bar with bar eats. The service was ok and prices were on par with what you would find along the coastal.

A fun location along the marsh walk, but food is average and mediocre. Service is friendly...am guessing the bar is a bigger attraction.

The place is a little hole in the wall stuck between two large restaurants, but I ate probably one of the best sandwiches I've ever had. A BLT with local shrimp on a soft ciabatta bun. The bun was soft but had a crunchy interior after being browned on a grill top. Leaf lettuce, fried green tomatoes (!), crispy hickory... More

On past trips to Myrtle Beach, we had driven down to the Marsh walk in Murrells Inlet, SC. We stumbled upon Bubbas a few years ago & sat outside & watched the goats as we ate. Some how, my husband remembered this place as he had an oyster po-boy the first time & he remembered how much he loved it.... More

We went here on a recommendation and loved it! The entire vibe is laid back and casual. The view of the inlet is perfect for relaxing. Our server was extremely friendly and attentive. The food was great! Between the four of us we had shrimp, fish tacos, the Mahi sandwich, and the chicken sandwich. ALL of our dishes we fantastic.... More
