We are a brand new Oceanfront Restaurant with beautiful views of the ocean and sunset. We have a rooftop bar and dining patio as well as seating right near the sand. Amazing meals, and the freshed seafood you will ever have. Seafood was swimming yesterday and on your plate today brought in fresh several times a week.

The hostess is most unfriendly and rude, the food was bad. i had a shrimp wrap that had maybe 3 shrimp and something inedible inside. Don't waste your time at this restaurant unless you want to be treated like you are bothering the staff and...eat really bad food.More

Where to start? Okay, the beginning it is. While visiting North Myrtle Beach, I told our local friends that I wanted “ocean front” dining. After paying $15 to park two doors down, some guy asked if we were going to Snookys. We said yes and...he continued to tell us he had eaten there the night before and that it was the worst meal he had ever had and that he would rather be hungry. WOW. We ignored him and went anyway. So, well, he was right. There were six of us and nobody had a decent meal. One of the gals ordered a lemon drop martini…the first ever with salt on the rim. She tried again and got a shot that tasted like a margarita…again with the salt. I ordered a medium rare filet (okay, I get it…seafood restaurant…sorry!) it came out butterflied (who DOES that?). Well done. I sent it back and the second one had half of the butterfly rare and the other half well done! 🙄. I gave up. I can say that our server, Jenny, was amazing. It’s not her fault that the food was below subpar. I always try to find a positive spin on my reviews, but in this case….there just aren’t any. Get a package of peanut butter crackers….you’ll be happier.More

Mikayla was our server and she was great! We got a table on the patio after about an hour wait. We were able to enjoy the music at Murphy’s and the oceanfront view was great! Firecracker shrimp was very good. We didn’t like the bacon...app. Crab cake dinner and shrimp wraps were good. Wings were overcooked. Mikayla’s great personality made our dinner very enjoyable. We are locals and we will be back!More

This is a great little Shrimp and Fish joint on the beach. The joint is very friendly and clean. The hostess was friendly and helpful. Our waitress was the bomb. The food was off the scale. It’s worth a try!!!

Food is decent. Love the view of the ocean. Watch out for the older guy with a monopoly mustache. Very creepy. 46 years old trying to get with 21 year old girls at the bar in his uniform. Very creepy seeing him at the resteraunt...now. Won’t be returning for that reason.More

Had dinner there for first time. Restaurant was clean, neat and good seating options. Tried fried green tomatoes that were excellent with a slightly spicy sauce and salad under them. Pieces were good sized and get 5.. Pan seared crab cake was also excellent. Single...one perfectly cooked and good size. The fresh fish with mango salsa was fresh, lite and very good. Good size piece over rice. The caprese salad with blackened scallops was awesome. Two big scallops on each of the tomato and fresh mozrerlla. The mermaid water martini was really good drink. Great dinning experience with pricing in line with area and portions. Will eat there again.More

Don’t bother. No reservations. Stops “accepting names” way before closing, with tons of open tables, waitstaff standing around. Decided to eat appetizers at bar. Told bartender we were ready to order, she ate a bite of her cake and walked off 🤣. So we left,...and headed to Locals where we received excellent service!More

We hadn't planned on eating here but ran across this and it had outdoor seating and the sign said raw bar so we thought we would give it a try. Upon arrival we asked to be seated outside. We ordered drinks and 24 oysters on...the half shell. These were delicious and only $16/dozen so the price was right! We ordered friend shrimp with a side of cole slaw, which were excellent, not a lot of breading, and fried oysters with a side of cole slaw. Everything was delicious and our service was great!More

Snookys Oceanfront used to be a favorite. But, last night we brought some out of State friends and were extremely disappointed! They used to have real lobster rolls (large chunks of lobster on a roll.) Now it’s a lobster salad, which is mostly other ingredients,...but certainly a lot less lobster! The she crab soup used to be one of the best. This too was so salty and more flour than crab. Extremely disappointed that the food is now sub-par.More
