After a brief wait we were seated and orders taken. Really good bowl of hush puppies along with honey butter was first brought to table. Fried seafood was cooked perfectly and meat on ribs fell off.

one of the best places to get seafood go for the EARLY BIRD Specials, get entree, NON Alcoholic drink & dessert for one price (Chocolate Cake or Key Lime Pie) always a must stop while at Murrells Inlet SC staff & management: helpful & friendly encountered NO ISSUES!

Great early bird specials Monday through Friday include drink and desert. We go at least a couple of times a month. We have introduced a number of neighbors to this excellent restaurant.

WOW, We had been told this was a great place to eat without breaking the pocketbook. Two in our party ate the crab legs and they were exceptional. We were pleasantly surprised to find they included shrimp as well as a couple of sides. One in our party order the seafood plate and he said the fried oysters were the... More

My in laws recommend Driftwood, we ate there and were not disappointed! Wonderful seafood and great service! We had a small wait but it was a Saturday night, and we had anticipated a wait, so it wasn't a deal breaker for us. The seafood was delicious and not greasy at all. We'll definitely be back! Highly recommended!

We have visited Driftwoods for three years and have consistently had excellent seafood. It's fresh, lightly breaded, and not greasy. Last year we discovered their seafood platter for two. Flounder, shrimp, scallops, deviled crab, clams, and oysters. Since we don't like oysters we substituted shrimp. In addition to all this we each got two sides and an abundance of hush... More

I had the white fish with wild rice & steamed broccoli. Everything was cooked perfectly. Wait staff were attentive but not excellent.

Tonight I had the Hamburger with goat cheese. Waitress asked how I'd like it and I said medium rare. When presented and first bite was taken it was more med well than anything else. With that aside it was delicious. The combination of the goat cheese and the sweet sauce that is drizzled on top of the cheese it is... More
