Hubby and I arrived here at 10:00 pm, and there was very little open. It literally was our saving grace after driving over 2 hours, landing in Charleston, ending in N. Myrtle Beach. When we arrived, it was raining so hard. Have to be honest,...More

Went to 3 local bars before coming here. Should have come here first! Great music on the patio over looking the ocean and right on the beach! Service was great. Didn't try the food but drinks were cold and reasonably priced. Looks like a dive...More

Went in the evening to hear Tim Clark Band. Good music, cold beer and good service. Did not order anything to eat but food looked good. Nice being on the ocean.

We'd had Murphy's recommended for good burgers and decided to go there for an early supper. It was bad timing for us. We ended up there at 5:15 pm and the place was standing room only. So when a table opened inside we grabbed it....More

Late lunch. Definitely parking issues which is not good for handicap. Definitely a busy, locals hangout. Outside seating, which was full, and inside. Nothing fancy at all. But had best loaded cheeseburgers. Great band playing.
