My wife and I ate dinner here. It is located on the restaurant row at/near the Inlet boardwalk. I had fried oysters as usual since Murrells Inlet is the SC oyster location. My wife had fish. Nice location, good service, and great fried oysters.

My husband and I always eat here when in the area. I almost always get the scallops basket and he gets boiled shrimp. The she-crab soup is also yummy! This is a small little block building in the inlet painted pink and blue, so you can't miss. The atmosphere is what I always love at the beach. But, most of... More

Wife and I stopped for lunch and enjoyed all that we ordered. Potatoe skins, chicken strips, and shrimp salad. Wait staff were friendly and prices reasonable. Recommend.

For many years we have enjoyed eating at this very laid back, local, casual restaurant. We've been with family and by ourselves. The food is mostly fried and always good. Believe it or not we most enjoy the grilled ribeye! They cook it out back and its is always juicy and delicious. Get it with a baked potato, salad and... More

Quirky looking place that does not jump out at you, but home to very good fresh seafood. I had fried shrimp and a cup of crab soup and wife had grilled seafood mix and all was very good. Quick service and friendly waitress. Reasonable prices for the area.

We had a simply horrid experience there. After a 1.5 hour wait, we never received our food, tables came and went and when we asked a manager, she said it was coming out, after 30 minutes we gave up and ask for a check for our appetizers and drinks. They even charged us wrong and charged us for side salads... More

Love this Darlin seafood restaurant. Painted BRIGHT blue siding with BRIGHT yellow storm shutters and a BRIGHT pink roof, it has a lot of soul. In addition to seafood, you may get hamburgers and ribs. We ate shrimp and grits served with yummy hush puppies on the side. It was possibly the best shrimp and grits I have ever eaten!!... More
