This is the best seafood place. If you go between 4:30-5:30 they offer a lighter menu at a lesser price. When I say lighter, you might think you will leave hungry. Trust me you won't! I don't know how anyone eats the regular portion. They...More

We went with friends -- we are locals from Pawleys Island. Most of us had not been there for several years. Everything was delicious -- flounder and creek shrimp were our favs. Generous servings. Excellent service. And those hush puppies !!!!

Lee's Inlet kitchen is my family's favorite restaurant on Murrells Inlet. I can't understand why it's not rated much higher on trip advisor. We usually go there twice during the week of our annual beach trip. The hush puppies are the best you will find...More
