We enjoyed the restaurant even though ot was a little pricey for fried food. The fish platter was excellent as well as the shrimp basket. The hush puppies were a little over cooked but otherwise excellent. Parking was a little tight.

The food is delicious! The steamed peel and eat shrimp are big and yummy. The cocktail sauce has a nice amount of horseradish in it and is mmm mmm good. We loved the food and the atmosphere. It is a loud room full of people having fun while eating good food.😊 If you get a chance to go, do it.

Came here on recommendations from TripAdvisor. Oysters were small and the only local catch seems to be fish and no crustaceans . Service was decent and being as busy as this place is. My wife had the crab cake and it wasn't up to scratch. I am one and done with this place.

This place has hot or cold boiled shrimp for $5 during happy hour - for 1/4 #! We just make a meal out of these. Usually 1/2 a 3/4 # each will fill you up !!

Maybe I'm a bit of a contrarian. I've been several times with visitors and I find that Bimini's is a very popular and very typical tourist place. Meaning? Its crowded, loud (especially if they have a live band for whatever reason) and overpriced. Service is generally friendly though rushed. If you arrive after 5:45 in warm weather months plan on...

We went there New Year's Eve day. Can't believe I haven't been sooner since I've been visiting Myrtle beach for 50+ years. Food was fantastic and timely even though they were very busy. Staff was so helpful and patient as they didn't try to rush us along. Will definitely be returning. 👍

Like many local seafood places, Bimini's is very casual, with TV's playing throughout the restaurant and almost a dumpy appearance. But who cares, because this place serves seriously good seafood at fabulous prices! We were in a fried state of mind and kept with that theme in our orders. The fried coconut shrimp were unbelievable! At first, I was surprised... More

We always make time for a trip to Bimini's when visiting the MB area. The menu is so great for many choices of the freshest seafood ever. Prices and service are excellent and the Steamer pan is a must try. Very busy place, but so worth the wait for a table. Very casual dress code, and try to go early... More

Bimini's doesn't look like much from the outside. Just a small, almost dumpy-looking little place. But don't let that fool you - the food here is EXCELLENT. I can see why this restaurent has long wait times. They don't accept reservations, and there aren't that many tables inside. But we lucked out and were seated immediately. The atmosphere is a...

It's definitely a local joint! Nothing fancy, but super casual with beachy murals painted on walls. My family of 4, hubby, myself and kids ages 10 and 12, dined at Bimini's Oyster Bar a Thursday night over Christmas Break 2016. They have a bar, but it's family friendly environment. I felt comfortable having my kids along. Bimini's does not offer... More
