Lee's has been a part of Inlet dining for years and is popular. I had shrimp 'n grits which very good but the portion was small. More suited to my elderly mother than a middle aged man. The atomsphere is what you might expect in a place that grew with added on additions . Cozy/crowded seating in a number of... More

We went to Lee’s Inlet Kitchen twice during a recent stay at Litchfield By the Sea in Pawley’s Island. The Seafood Combination (Fried Flounder, Deviled Crab and Shrimp) on the early lite menu is just the perfect portion of food for us at very reasonable price. So glad Lee’s was spared by Hurricane Matthew.

There seem to be hundreds of seafood restaurants within a very few miles up and down the SC coast and some, like Lee's, have stood the test of time. The loyalty of those who spend summers here or live here year round have insured the success of Lee's Inlet Restaurant. Simple decor suits the casual atmosphere, although a little more... More

Had been a long since we had been to Myrtle Beach. One of the places we always go to is Lee's Inlet Kitchen. Food was delicious. I'm ready to go back!

We were greeted at the door and promptly seated to enjoy the best fresh fish on the beach. The fish was expertly prepared and delivered hot to the table. We dove in a big plate of delicious fish

Went with Argentina group of friends on hot summer afternoon. Busy, but friendly, good service and the normal calabash beach style fish. The men got the traditional fried platter and I had a shrimp! Very good! Lots of food!

My parents started our tradition ... wouldn't take a trip to the beach without going to Lee's - at least twice! Consistently good food - the service is excellent - the place is immaculate - it's not about the view! Soft shell crabs, frozen margaritas, hush puppies & She Crab Soup are my favorites. But you can't go wrong -... More

Loved it. She crab soup and hush puppies were perfect. Grilled mixed shrimp, scallops and fish were excellent. You won't be disappointed.
