Nice food, good prices. Wait person awful. Not personable, curt and not nearly as good as the food would have been if she was what you would expect as a server. Rate the service as terrible. Wouldn't eat in her section if it was free

Ate here on a Friday, with a large group. The restaurant worked us in, no problem. Great service. I recommend the fish tacos -- I had them grilled. I think the large crowd here tells the story. There is a beautiful old oak tree in front of this restaurant.

We have been here several times. Their corned beef dinner on this visit was excellent. 6 of us had this, and the 7th had filet mignon, which was also very good. Service was very good, especially since the restaurant was crowded on this holiday. Our waitress checked on us a number of times to see if we needed anything else.... More

My husband and I travel from Charleston, where culinary is king, to Myrtle Beach a couple of times a year. We almost always stop somewhere new and random to eat. We saw and stopped at Saltwater Creek on a whim. Such a good decision. The atmosphere is comfortable and intimate. The staff friendly and knowledgeable about what they are serving.... More

My wife and I had dinner with family at SCC(Salt Creek Cafe). My Mahi Mahi was excellent. It was done just right with lite seasoning. My wife had a cup of She Crab Soup and the Grouper Francaise. She enjoyed them both. Ted, as our waiter, did a wonderful job. He was attentive and anticipated our needs. Some day we... More

Always suggest you make a reservation at this popular spot. I have been here many times and it is always crowded. The food is always great. the service is typically slow. Sitting outside on a beautiful day like this weekend sipping a $3 mimosa, I didn't mind the wait. I loved my Shrimp Eggs Benedict with a rice cake and... More

Couldn't book for Valentines Day-even though we called a week ahead. However, they kept their Valentines menu until Feb. 19 so we went last night instead! It was divine! Crispy Duck . Hubby had the filet with Bearnaise Sauce. One of the few places in the area with perfect Fried Green Tomatoes and the She Crab soup! Yum Yum!!!!! A... More

We went there for their Valentines Special meal deal which was a very good value. The fried oyster and green tomatoes appetizer was excellent. The bottle of house Cabernet that came with the Special was also very good. My wife had the crispy duck which was great especially the sauce served on the side but the rice was just too... More

Appreciate the good review! Apologizes for the server not being more attentive. V-day is always a tough day for servers give as much attention to each customer as they normally do, due to the high volume of people. Still, not an excuse. Just want you to know that they are some of the best in the biz , and would... More

I've been to this restaurant many times, and my wife and I have made it part of our rotation. The variety offered should provide ample choices for most patrons. Among the best offerings, in my opinion, are the pizzas, blackened Salmon, the Cuban, and the Grilled Shrimp with Tomato and Basil pasta. Like any place, you can always go and... More
