I was really drawn in by the items on the menu but I was terribly disappointed by the price and the taste. Crabcake mix was over salted and used too much Old Bay seasoning. I'd be willing to try them again, but only if I have the money to burn and I'm very selective on what I choose from the... More

Food was excellent but was a bit overpriced and the tartar sauce was a bit average. One thing that is very important is price...if it is too costly, that is a problem with returning guests - especially with locals. That said, the meal was excellent, but they need just use a different tartar sauce.

We had a nice and quiet lunch outside. The covered area is actually nice. Our waitress could not have been any nicer or more attentive. The crab soup was very warm, creamy and wonderful! I also enjoyed their lightly breaded crab cake. I will go back often!

Just a really good Lunch. The food was fresh and so tasty. We actually ordered a repeat of an earlier visit a few years ago. Highly recommend this place. It's a welcome change and you won't be disappointed. Great service also. So yummy.

A hidden gem of a place along Hwy 17 with good service, great food and a staff that aims to please! What they lack in size they make up for with their friendly welcome and relaxing atmosphere. An enjoyable visit and one I will make again!

Went to try as they got a best of the Grand Strand award. They definately have some of the best sandwiches around. Server was good, could have been a bit more friendly, but we definately plan to return.

I Googled Best Crab Cakes in Myrtle Beach and this was at the top of the list. It's a tiny place in a strip mall but is so amazing! I decided on the Crab Ball Basket and was not disappointed. Fresh crab, no fillers - simply delicious! So if you're looking for a great new restaurant, go here and you... More
