Happy Hour + karaoke Machine = Ear Piercing audio torture Yes folks I was THAT guy. Worked up enough liquid courage to have a go at the microphone and belt out not one but 2 oldie but goodies. The staff and patrons were kind enough to indulge my drunkin ramblings at the microphone when they would've been fully justified to cut me off and throw me out. Now THAT'S hospitality folks.

Reviews:
Shell Crackers is a quaint laid back grill with a wonderful atmosphere and views. Tucked back in the woods away from it all yet close to everything. You need to give this place a try and its also dog friendly with a dog park you may utilize while having a beverage or meal.

Crab soup was delicious. Not to fishy or salty, lump pieces of crab.. Very good.. My husband enjoyed his blackened grouper ,which he decided to have served over lo mein noodle mixture which he raved about. Very good service and atmosphere also . We will definetly return.
Wonderful dinner. We loved the rustic chowder. Not too heavy for a summer night. I'm a sucker for French onion soup, despite the warm weather, and it did not disappoint. Our entree was grilled local grouper. At the menu's suggestion, we had the side of rice with black beans and chorizo. I was completely surprised at what a perfect pairing this was. The fish was complimented by the strong tasting side. The chorizo was made in house. Superb! Service was friendly and plenty attentive on a busy night. I'd suggest reservations made the day before. We didn't do this and ate at the bar rather than wait an hour. Eat outside to enjoy the view from the back of the restaurant (goat island). We're glad to start our trip with this delightful place!
Wonderful place to eat. The location is great, right on the water. The service is great, the food is excellent. I had the shrimp and grits and I can say the grits were great, I usually don't like them. A great find

Painter’s Homemade Ice Cream

100 N Wacamaw Dr
Murrells Inlet, 29576
Reviews:
Super friendly, right on the beach, good selection of flavors including hand dip and soft serve. We actually got our ice cream in the form of a shake for beach portability (and to share with the munchkin)
Great ice cream! (Much better than a different place 1/2 block away). I had toffee crunch and it was delicious! My husband.'s black cherry was equally yummy! Worth the walk up one flight (though an elevator is available).
A good selection of homemade ice cream at reasonable prices. We took our family of 5 and got lots of ice cream for under $15. The waffle cones are a good addition, especially when covered in chocolate or nuts. I got a specialty Sunday and it was delicious. The recipe called for cine on streusel, but they just threw on some pretzels. Meh... Only downer.

Y'all. This place. I've driven past it for years, and after today I hate myself for not stopping before. Came for a late breakfast/brunch around 10:30 on a Saturday. Unlike some of the places closer to the beach ( Eggs Up and Garden City Pancake) there was no wait. Perfect for me, as I'm not to fond of places with crowds pouring out of them. I had 3 pancakes and bacon. They were the fluffiest pancakes I've ever had. Delicious. They offer blueberry, banana nut, and chocolate as well as the plain. Bacon was done perfectly. My dining companion had "The Starving Artist", it comes with several options and he chose: eggs, grits, bacon, and biscuits and gravy. It was all excellent. I LOVE that it is truly a local small business. The waitress was by herself, but was super friendly and helpful. They weren't busy so she was doing a great job by herself. Who ever owns the place must be an artist. There are paintings all over the walls for sale, and all of the tables are hand painted. I can't wait to go back for breakfast or to try what they offer for lunch!
Oh my gosh this place serves a dynamite breakfast!!! My husband said it was the best breakfast ever!! I enjoyed a veggie omelette that was fresh & delicious. I split a waffle with my man, my kids had pancakes, eggs, bacon, grits. All of it was 5 star food. The service was as impressive as the food. The whole experience was lovely! This is a must!!!!
Stopped I on our way to Charleston and found this gem. Amazing service from our waiter Joe who was so helpful with the food and also giving recommendations for our road trip. The California wrap for breakfast was amazing!!!!!! Very quite and beautiful settings for a quick stop to eat. IF YOU WANT A GREAT MEAL YOU NEED TO STOP HERE.

The Grilled Cheese & Crab Cake Co

2520 Hwy 17 Business
Murrells Inlet, 29576
Reviews:
Food is really good. I am not even a huge grilled cheese fan but it was great. Waitress is a sweetheart and very helpful. The only thing that holds it back from 5 stars is the wait. One girl running a small packed place means a long wait before you order, long wait for your meal, and a long wait for your bill. Not great for groups as the place I really small.
Yum... Lobster melt and crab melt were wonderful. The waitress was totally awesome and the Southern belle. Small and quaint like I like 'em.
Dropped in for some lunch on the way home to Charleston from Myrtle Beach with my girlfriend.We were pleasantly surprised with their Maryland style crab cakes. Thick moist, grilled to perfection and full of Lump, sweet, delicious, crab meat. The CrabMelt is one of a kind. Best tasting sandwich I've had all year. Oozing with monterey jack cheese, but not overpowering the crabby goodness. Perfectly grilled Texas toast. Doesn't get any better!

Colby is a sweetie who bent over backwards for me. Love the food. Try to find one whenever in CA.
Fun, clean, great customer service, and you get what you order! I'm not a fast-food frequenter, but the people that served my group of friends during a late-night crazy frenzy were awesome and so tolerable of us! Fries are excellent!!! Tasty! Meal can reach $10 easily on average.
The best one I've been to! Super kind employees. Immaculately clean. Get a large fries and dip in Polynesian sauce, my favorite! The original sandwich is delicious but if you're wanting to be healthier the chargrilled version is nice! Wraps and salads too.

Reviews:
Was invited out with friends for dinner tonight. The couple who took us here knew we liked Italian food & said they wanted us to try it. My wife had the special Veal Sorrento which was superb. I had Chicken Parmigiana with a side of Penne. The restaurant was off the beaten path & you wouldn't know it was there unless someone told you. It was behind TGIF in Murrles Inlet . It was a small family restaurant. The food was excellent & very reasonable priced. Now we have 3 favorite Italian restaurants. The chef & his wife run the place. The food & service couldn't be better. Each dish was personally cooked to order.
Great Food, Great service, and the new pizza that there serving was one of a kind!! Not the type that flops over when you eat it or too greasy it was just right. Also I also had the Chicken Francese and it was so delicious not to over powering from the lemon and not to oily it was the best I've ever had. I would defiantly go back for lunch or dinner!!
Excellent food and service. All the food is cooked fresh and to order which is worth the wait. This is not a fast food restaurant. The dishes are all authentic Sicilian and this is understandably so, since the owner / chef is Sicilian. What else can I say, except treat yourself and loved ones to some great italian dishes at reasonable prices. Enjoy. Peter D

Good price, good burger, & lots of fries. Clean and roomy place to eat. Victoria was a wonderful delight.
Don't be fooled by the fact that this place is A) a chain B) tucked in a strip mall C) a little hokey with its incessant 1950's doowop vibe. This is the best burger in the Grand Strand at the best price with the friendliest service.
I had the BBQ chicken and half rack. The ribs were just OK but the chicken was bad. I long for the day when people realize that BBQ chicken is a preparation technique and not just chicken dipped in BBQ sauce after it's cooked.

Great Local business. We have purchased all that they have to offer. Everything has been great. Recently did a steam pot with all seafood from Seven Seas. All my guests were blown away. If you love seafood I highly recommend this place.
This is a great stop! We got 2 pounds of large shrimp and they were great!! We also got a pound of large scallops and cooked it all at home. We had a delicious meal and it's a lot cheaper than going out to eat! The staff was very friendly and helpful.
Great seafood and also an experience. The monger took my four YO in back to show him where the crabs live. He also gave us great instructions on how to prepare everything we bought. Would be a regular if I lived here.
