Dining in Murrells Inlet is a true treat. For starters, you never have to worry if your seafood dinner is fresh. Most of the restaurants are located on the docks and marinas around Murrells Inlet, a small body of water on the south end of the Grand Strand, and you can sit and watch the fishing fleets roll in after a long day at sea and unload their catches of the day on the docks and deliver them directly to the kitchens.
Murrells Inlet also offers a slice of Lowcountry life, one where no one ever gets in too big a hurry and the best-laid plans can justifiably be canceled at the last minute of the fish are biting. Nicknamed the "Seafood Capital of South Carolina," all things revolve around the tides and the runs of shrimp, fish and crabs. Nowhere is the laid-back lifestyle and delicious seafood more evident than the Murrells Inlet Marshwalk, a wooden walkway that runs along the banks of the inlet and offers direct access to some of the best establishments in town.
Located at the Crazy Sisters Marina, popular Marshwalk eateries include Bovine's, Capt. Dave's Dockside, Drunken Jack's and the famous Dead Dog Saloon. For those who want to explore other areas of Murrells Inlet, Salt Creek cafe and Prosser's BBQ provide a nice change of pace, especially if you are hungry for something other than seafood.
