I always ask for the fried flounder filet, specifically the white meat side of the fish. Great service, great food, and Russell is generally on the premises chatting with the customers.

My wife and I had dinner here. I had fried oysters and my wife had fish. Very good. Service was adequate except on the slow side. Murrells Inlet is definitely the place to get fried oysters - haven't had bad/super greasy ones yet on our trip.

On the south end of Murrells Inlet, it's a little farther down from the cluster of restaurants by the boardwalk. Four of us went on the advice of a friend that lives in Murrells Inlet and is quite a foodie. We were not disappointed. I'm not a big fish eater but had the fish and chips (and substituted a baked...

As new locals we asked everyone where we should eat. This place came up again and again. Russell gets to know everyone ! He'll share stories and tips of the region and tell you about the interesting, very fun decor. Food is great! They know how to do seafood right!
