Drunken Jack’s

Drunken Jack’s

Drunken Jack’s is famous to locals as well as the millions of visitors to our area each year. The restaurant is nestled on the Murrells Inlet MarshWalk providing diners with unforgettable views overlooking Snug Harbor. They offer fresh seafood selections like oysters on the half shell, stuffed shrimp, she crab soup, frog legs and hefty platters. The hushpuppies are rumored to be some of the best on the Grand Strand. Make plans to get there early to enjoy drinks at the bar as Drunken Jack’s does not take reservations.

Dead Dog Saloon

4079 U.S. 17 Business, Murrells Inlet, SC 29576
from 3

Open in 2002, Dead Dog Saloon quickly became a stand out along the Murrells Inlet MarshWalk. The back deck offers great views of the gorgeous salt marsh and often offers live music. The casual atmosphere is accented by fun dog-themed decorations. The menu features a little bit of everything- from seafood and steaks to sandwiches and baskets. Try Boo Boo’s Tender Bites- beef tenderloin on garlic toast with parmesan mayo, asiago cheese and balsamic vinaigrette- or opt for a steam pot. 

Sea Captain’s House

Sea Captain’s House Restaurant is an award-winning restaurant known best for its history and oceanfront dining experiences- every seat in the house offers views of the Atlantic. The restaurant was built in 1930 and used as a beach cottage and then nearly torn down in the 60s. Lucky for us, plans didn’t work out and the restaurant came to life. They serve breakfast, lunch and dinner seven days a week. The menu includes a wide variety of seafood as well as other goodies for land lovers.

Damon’s Grill Oceanfront

Damon’s Grill in Myrtle Beach offers some of the best ocean views in town. The open air deck is the perfect spot to sip on a cocktail. Even the inside has great views! Damon’s serves both lunch and dinner and are known best for their famous BBQ ribs, chicken and pork. Take a bottle of the sauce home as a souvenir. Other menu items like burgers, seafood plates, sandwiches and New England Clam Chowder are sure to feed any sized appetite.
