When my family and I go on vacation, seafood is what we like to eat. After our day at the beach, the search for the perfect dinner began. What I found (to my dismay) was several buffet places. No matter how well they purport their wares, I always end feeling meh about a buffet. Doesn't matter if it's Italian, seafood...... More

The food was good, a little pricey if you get a plate. But everywhere at the coast is expensive on food, The waiter we had was a little unfriendly. He acted like he was doing us a favor by giving us a refill on our drinks. He took the order came back when the food was ready and we had... More

My fiancé and I were looking for a good seafood place that wasn't a buffet. This is excellent if you want fried seafood and a reasonable price. The fried food is very crisp. I haf the flounder but I think I'd get catfish if i went back. My fiancé settled for a crab cake burger, which was a decent size... More

Great place to go and the wait was only 10 minutes when we went around 5:45. My husband got the broil shrimp which was very good. I got the chicken fingers they were okay. Overall seafood lovers very good choice.

Found this restaurant in a Myrtle Beach book. Thought we would give it a try after TripAdvisors reviews. It was great!!! Got there about 6:15. Had a 45 minute wait. No big deal. You could wait outside. They had swings and picnic tables to sit in while you waited. Our server was Mattie. She was great. Food was awesome. Large... More

Good food. They serve Prosser's Bbq which is worth a trip here without having to go to MI. We drive our golf cart to eat here and that's half the fun. This time we had salads which were fresh and good sandwiches. Beer selection is just ok. Long wait time always, so go early and have a sweet tea and... More

We ate lunch on a Saturday. There was no wait. Relaxed atmosphere and server was great. Food was just okay. My husband and I had the flounder sandwich. It was dry and the dry sourdough bread was nothing special. My children had the usual kid fare, corn dogs and a grilled cheese. But be warned if your kids are expecting... More
