My family dined there on our first and last nights of a week-long vacation. We ordered the oyster roast and were amazed! They are so fresh and delicious. The staff were friendly and informative and the food is outstanding. The next time I am anywhere near Murrells Inlet, I am definitely stopping by Nance's.

This restaurant has been an area favorite for decades. Lately its popularity has slipped, but I can't say why. It is especially known for its steamed oysters, which come in a huge pot, with a shell shucking knife, and you throw the shells away through a hole in the table under which there's a garbage receptacle. Sounds gross, but it's... More

This is the best place to visit for an old fashioned oyster roast! Nance's oyster roast is wonderful! You can get oysters wet or dry! Seafood platters are great, too!

Got seated immediately and the view of the inlet was amazing. The server was extremely helpful and patient with our party of 6.

My family had made this a tradition for years going to this restaurant. The last time we visited we ordered our normal items - a variety of things from popcorn shrimp for the kids to different seafood platters. The food was greasy - I know it's fried, but the temperature of the oil must not have been high enough because... More

Sorry to hear that you didn't enjoy your dining experience. This was never brought to my attention at any time. We would have gladly gotten you more shrimp and another piece of flounder (we only use flounder on our platters) if it had been brought to my attention. I'm not quite sure who sent this "rude" response to an email... More

Have been going to Nance's for many years. At one time was "The Place To Go" for oysters, however, last few times I was there, with spouse, oysters were terrible! No imported,only local, which were dirty/smelly,and half shells were either empty or unable to open (and restaurant was fairly empty). Will definitely not be going back, too many better restaurants... More

Sorry to hear you didn't enjoy your dining experience. As far as "Imported" oysters, we rarely carry them except for 1/2 shells during our local oyster season. The majority of our customers prefer the Murrells Inlet oysters and up until this particular review I have never heard them described as dirty/smelly or even half empty. If they were hard to...

My family has been coming to Nance's since I was 7 years old. 25 years later, I continued that tradition with a family of my own. I remembered this place to be lively, upbeat, with oyster shells in the parking lot. Service was top-notch, and food was pretty great. Some of the reviews I have read, I started to get... More

Thank you so much for the wonderful review. Yes, there may be a few bad reviews but I guess we can't please everyone but we try.

Nance's provided a delicious meal for my family and I, but on top of all the great food the service was wonderful. Our server was great. If you ever eat here request Briana.
