NOTE: Snooky’s on the Water is at the Cricket Cove Marina. The restaurant is in the building with the marina offices, it has a private entrance on the far left of the building. With lots of stairs. Outdoor dining is available.

Six of us went to Snooky’s on the Water today. Knowing that “Happy Hour” begins at 4:00 PM we arrived punctually.

We were seated promptly, our server Laura arrived soon after with water; the drinkers ordered wine, remember, it was “happy hour” after all, so why not have a drink?

When it came to meals, the sheer number of wonderful seafood choices nearly made ordering our entrees difficult, however, we prevailed. Two of the diners had the Coastal Seafood Platter, with one with crab cakes and flounder, the other with fried shrimp; another diner had the 1-pound crab legs bundle. Also ordered were a Scallop - Pee Dee Po’ Boy, a Greek Salad with Grilled Shrimp, and another person had Jumbo Lump Crab Cakes. All food was served promptly and piping-hot, and the portions were generous. Everyone was completely satisfied with their meal from beginning to end. Despite being well fed, three of the diners ordered dessert: Bread Pudding, Key Lime Pie, and Turtle Cheesecake, each of which was excellent too! Oh, one more thing, the view of the marina and Intracoastal Waterway made the ambiance delightful.

By the time we left, our bellies were full, our spirits were buoyed, and we vowed to return-again, very soon.

Each of us thoroughly enjoyed Snooky’s on the Water and encourage you to give it a try too!

Our food was delicious! Why haven’t we seen this place before?!!

My crab cake and fried shrimp were perfectly cooked. The wedge salad was huge and very good. My wife loved her almond crusted grouper and my friend loved her grilled crab cake sandwich too! Finally, the clam chowder was perfect.

We had to wait 30 minutes, but the wait was well worth the wait. Our waitress, Laura, was just awesome. She was so helpful and nice.

Hopefully we can go back soon!

The stairs are a “witch” to walk up if you have knee problems or are of an elderly age. i got the crab and avocado salad appetizer and it was GREAT. however, our server was rude. she had no patience for having a larger party and even got snippy with one of the older ladies in our group even though the server is the one who messed up the order…she literally said "well thats what you said" and I was sitting right next to her and that is NOT what she said. But, having been a server, I would never talk back to a patron. you just smile and say sorry and see how you can make amends! The place also seemed dirty. The window we were sitting at was filthy and flies were around. My girls did like looking out the window though at the channel.

We went to the Litte River location because the North Myrtle Beach location had a line out the door. We got seated right away, they told us the kitchen was a little behind, but the staff was very happy to wait on us and everyone was friendly, it was worth the wait, the food was awesome
