Mr. Fish has moved uptown - both literally and figuratively.
The popular seafood restaurant, located for the past decade at 3401 North Kings Highway, has relocated to a new building about 30 blocks or 3 miles north at 6401 North Kings Highway in Myrtle Beach.

In addition to the new address, Mr. Fish has also undergone a major upgrade in atmosphere, decor and roominess. Nearly tripling in size to 220 seats, Mr. Fish now has a much cozier feel than the old strip mall location. And the renovated interior, featuring hanging lights and a unique folk-art collection, make Mr. Fish a more romantic/casual environment that's also fit for families.
The father-daughter team of co-owners Ted and Sheina Hammerman have brought the restaurant a long way since the father's fish market/grill days. The move from downtown to the previous location saw a similar improvement in facilities, and the latest move is a continuation in the same direction (as evidenced by a full parking lot ever since opening the doors to the new place in May).

That's because, for all the geographic and cosmetic changes, the culinary appeal remains the same. Mr. Fish still serves the same fresh seafood dishes, from the famous shrimp and grits mixed with Palmetto cheese and bacon to the popular fish tacos. All the old favorites, plus a few new ones, are on the menu. The chalkboard featuring fresh catch specials is still the way to go.
A more spacious bar area and sushi station are among the many expanded amenities at the new and improved Mr. Fish. Despite a hectic start given the expansion and relocation, the new spot is up and running better than ever.
