So Mako's isn't anything that's gonna stand out compared to other restaurants in the area, but the food is good. Their crab cakes were 85% crab, which is great considering places usually load up on the filler ingredients. The $4 side salad was huge. However it's a very small and low key restaurant, and I get the feeling the bar... More

Thank you so much for visiting Makos! We are glad you enjoyed the food! Yes we are a smaller place, we only have about 100 seats inside and out, and yes we are kind of hard to find, two signs on road, one on hotel , and one facing the beach. We do only have 16 tables, 14 bar stools,... More

Makos is the best place to get a bite to eat and a drink in Myrtle beach and the bartender Allie is by far the best one in Myrtle beach

Our waitress was great. We went in for lunch and no one else was around. We had huge, amazing nachos. We could have just gotten that. We took the rest of our food back to our hotel. Very yummy.

Parking is a real problem if you want to go here. So is climbing the stairs to get to the restaurant. It is quite small, and really not ocean front unless you are at the bar I suppose. the food was typical, the crab cake burger was just unflavored. I suppose the hot dogs might be ok.

Thank you for visiting Makos and writing your review. Sorry you did not enjoy you crabcake, i wish you would have let someone know about your disappointment as we would have tried to get something you would have enjoyed. Not sure how to take the hot dog comment, "Might have been ok" sounds like you didn't even try the hot... More

We visited here because we were looking for something close to the hotel to grab a bite to eat after driving 7 hours. Food was good, portions were more than abundant (had nachos ).. wings were good...staff was great...it was off season so only one server but she did an excellent job!

Definitely go during happy hour. The nacho appetizer is delicious. Portion sizes are huge. Wings have a great sauce but can be a little chewy. Service is very good. It is a great place to have a drink, watch the game, and watch the waves. Indoor seating is available for cold nights, but they also have patio heaters. Prices are... More

We have been here before but stayed closer in previous visits. We walked the beach for 2 1/2 miles to come back and it didnt disappoint. Small bar encourages great conversations and they are open later into the season this year.
