We kept hearing about how great this place was so decided to go to dinner there. We ordered the clam chowder which was amazing and came with hush puppies and sweet butter that were so good they tasted like dessert. We ordered a scallop dinner to split that was very expensive and quite ordinary. I wouldn't waste the money on... More

My wife and I had a late lunch there today. It was our first visit and it was a good one. The restaurant was clean, friendly waiter and the food was piping hot. Our appetizer was the Boom Boom Shrimp. It was fried perfect. I had a grilled grouper sandwich and it was good. Came with decent fries. My wife... More

Had a late lunch and ordered the daily "Special" - Mahi Tacos. Unfortunately they weren't SPECIAL. Tiny portion of fish and a sliver of avocado and only on one of the two tacos served. It wasn't just the entrée not up to my expectations but the Goose IPA draft that was delivered to the table was something other than what... More

We made our last trip to Drunken Jack's. Used to be annual stop, but we had quit going because of the long waits. Decided to go again last summer and was disappointed. Food was good, but like most of the marsh restaurants you pay extra for the view. Just felt rushed the entire time we were there. Waitress was trying... More

This is one of my favorite restaurants of all time! Obviously I am not the only one who thinks that as we went there this summer and there was a three hour wait! Yes the hush puppies and salad bar are great but so are the entrees. The service has always been fantastic as well.

Food was great. Salad bar best around. Ask for Jon G. The man is baby Jesus. Best waiter I have ever had and I am 40. Enough said.

We always have to visit Drunken Jack's when we are at the coast. Be careful with the hushpuppies and the salad bar! It is so good, it is easy to eat too much before the meal arrives!

My favorite place to eat when we are in Myrtle. The hush puppies are addictive, the salad bar is excellent, food is always excellent, desserts are heavenly, and had the best coffee ever there. Can't wait for our fall visit.

My husband and I went to dinner last weekend. We had not eaten there in a very long time. I ordered two appetizers for my meal: clam chowder and a sampler platter. The clam chowder tasted like canned soup and the sampler was not tasty. My husband order a sirloin steak, and the flavor was not good. When the bill... More

Eating fantail fried shrimp is one of my favorite things in the world. Probably because my dad was a sea captain here Murrells Inlet and he made the best! I guess I will always search for that perfect fantail shrimp, but this one here at Drunken Jack's is darn pretty close, and that's saying a whole lot! The view is... More
