Murrells Inlet MarshWalk
What began some two decades ago as a dream for a simple creek-side boardwalk in the little fishing and seafood village of Murrells Inlet, has grown to the single most visited destination for food and live entertainment along the entire 60-mile stretch of the Grand Strand. Now some eight distinct waterfront restaurants offer fine dining, fusion, sushi, wood-fired pizza, steaks, and of course, fabulous seafood, all with a free view and many with free nightly entertainment. Even with a dozen additional restaurants in the area, the Marsh Walk remains the heart & soul of Murrells Inlet. Not taking itself too seriously, you’ll find tee shirts with the unofficial slogan “a little drinking village with a fishing problem,” which references its fishing industry history, and its carefree, party-hearty attitude of today, all in good taste. Family friendly, the Murrells Inlet Marsh Walk, just 20 minutes south of Myrtle Beach, should be on every vacationer’s and local’s radar.
Dead Dog Saloon
The live music center of the Marsh Walk, the Dead Dog Saloon is almost a theme restaurant with its memorial wall to customers’ canines who’ve crossed the rainbow bridge,” to the best hot dogs on the beach, and plenty more doggone fun. With a large outdoor deck, enclosed patio, and two full bars, the Dead Dog serves from a huge menu, enough for even the pickiest of eaters, along with nightly live music in season.More Info
Laidback doesn’t begin to describe this popular Mash Walk restaurant (there’s one in Florence, S.C., too). The ultimate in come-as-you-are casual, Creek Ratz has a full raw bar and fresh oysters, shrimp and fish served broiled, baked or fried for the seafood fans in your group, as well as wraps, salads, pizza, sandwiches, soups, and even a children’s menu. Add in live entertainment and a spectacular view, and you might become a Creek Rat yourself.More Info
Named for the legendary pirate that once sailed along the creeks of Murrells Inlet 400 years ago, Drunken Jack’s is casual, but with an eye on fine Lowcountry cooking prepared by trained chefs. Specializing in seafood dishes, Drunken Jack’s also has a full line of steaks, chicken and prime rib. You’ll think you’re being fancy, but then comes the hushpuppies with honey butter, and you’ll know you’re just one of Jack’s family.More Info
Part of the famed Murrells Inlet Marsh Walk community of restaurants, Wicked Tuna sits high and proud at the south end of the Marsh Walk boardwalk with the best views in Murrells Inlet.

Carolina Food Tours
Carolina Food Tours is a great way to experience excellent area cuisine, meet new friends and learn about the historically and cultural significance of the community. Each course brings something new as tour participants get to indulge in appetizers and cocktails while taking in the breathtaking views before they are taken to a different venue to enjoy entrees and good conversation and then finish the tour at a third restaurant for a scrumptious dessert. We find that after the 2 1/2 hour tour is over that most want to stay a little longer to learn more facts and visit with their newfound friends.
