Best Seafood Murrells Inlet - Our Top 5
- Inlet Crab House Restaurant & Raw Bar
- Salt Water Creek Cafe
- Hot Fish Club
- Gulfstream Cafe
- Graham's Landing Restaurant
This local's favorite serves up seafood with a Carribean and Southern twist. They offer a kid's menu and a full bar, so there is a little something for everyone in the family to enjoy. We especially recommend their Inlet Shrimp and Spinach Dip, Shrimp & Grits and their Seafood Marinara Pasta.
Dishing up creative twists on American classics, the Salt Water Creek Cafe will surprise and treat your taste buds. The Crabby Max Sandwich features a generous helping of homemade crab cake on a potato bun, and diners go nuts for the Coconut Crunchy Shrimp with Thai Chili sauce. This cafe is pretty laid back, so you don't need to worry about getting all dressed up, just come to enjoy the seafood!
The Hot Fish Club is perfect for a night out on the town, and can accommodate a variety of allergy-specific diets. Hot Fish Club specializes in seafood and steak, so we recommend their Surf & Turf platter to taste a little bit of everything. Their Flounder Platter hits the spot when you're looking for something fresh but not too filling. You'll love the ambiance in their open-air gazebo, and they often offer live music to dine to.
Enjoy amazing seafood with some beautiful views at Gulfstream Cafe. This gem offers upscale seafood and open-air dining overlooking Murrell's Inlet. Treat yourself to a lobster tail, fried or boiled, that's stuffed with jumbo lump crab meat. If you think you can handle an appetizer along with that, we suggest their Firecracker Prawns. Gulfstream Cafe also serves a Sunday brunch, so if enjoy dinner you can come back for more Sunday morning.
Bring the family to Graham's Landing Restaurant! They serve seafood, burgers and pasta, so if you have a few picky eaters there will be something for everyone. We love their Fish Tacos with Mango Habanero Cooli and the Sesame Seared Tuna. Graham's Landing Restaurant's large deck offers great marsh views of Murrell's Inlet, and their seafood is sourced locally whenever possible.
