I ate here in 2016 with my daughter. Ate outside over-looking the waterway in Little River. Very nice! Food was good too, had sushi.

Good food & GREAT scenery! I had been craving fried oysters & they hit the spot here! It was a cool day, but still loved eating lunch on the Little River.

We went during the Blue Crab Festival in Little River. We have never had the chance to try this gem. The festival offers all kinds of deliciousness, but we wanted to sit down to eat. We lucked out getting a table by a window over...More

Worst meal I've had in a long time. $24 for a plate of Shark plugs. Tough. Wonder who they think they are kidding.

Our lunch was amazing but the highlight was the cake! One slice was enough for 3 people! The only problem was deciding which flavor! We fought over it and finally chose Triple Chocolate. Each cake is made in house and you would be a fool...More

In the mid 1900's a new chapter of history was made in a small town in Little River S.C. At that time a restaurant was opened in the very banks of the Intercoastal Waterway, called Capt. Juel's Hurricane. In the mid 70's the restaurant was brought by Joe Robertson, who still owns it today. You will still find Mr. Joe in and around the kitchen and his wife Deanna behind the bar mixing up killer drinks or in the kitchen preparing the luscious desserts. The restaurant is managed by their daughter Heidi and her husband Clayton, it truly is a family affair.In 2014 the place under went a total renovation inside and out. The restaurant now features a new Sushi Bar, that's a must have over looking the untouched marshlands. Capt. Juel's stills brings you the freshest seafood, hand cut steaks and chops. The menu is filled with a variety of choices from tacos to burgers. Or maybe just stop by the have a drink on the deck and enjoy seeing the fishing boats bring in the catch of the day.
