Disappointed when we arrived to find out that if you wanted to eat, it was necessary to go to the bar to place the order. Asked the host when servers would be available and he was clueless. Decided to leave and try another establishment.

Nice bar., only ate there a couple of times. The service was good. Had a margarita one day served in a plastic cup which in my way of thinking is not the way to serve a margarita. Had a dozen oysters on the half sjell they were good but very small. The other food I saw being served there looked... More

Extremely friendly and helpful staff. The manager spent a good thirty minutes helping me find the perfect souvenir shirt. Then we enjoyed an afternoon cocktail outside in their patio people watching. Very relaxing and memorable.

Some of the best peel your own shrimp I have ever eaten. I ate here for the first time with 3 other business acquaintances. They all come here during bike week. It was out of our way, but worth the trip. The service also was outstanding.

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

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.
