We always hit DJ when in the area. The hushpuppies melt in your mouth and will almost make you cry. The salad bar is to die for, no better selection on the Grand Strand. Haven't had an entree we didn't love. I personally gravitate towards...More

Drunken Jacks is usually one of our favorite Myrtle Beach area restaurants but not this time. We were initially seated near a loud nonstop crying baby so we decided to wait for a different table. At the bar we were ignored at our table, and...More
