We always used to visit the crab house but our last visit there was a real disappointment. We tried Lee's Kitchen and have gone back several times now. The food is very good and the service staff is real friendly.

Great atmosphere and staff. This institution has been around a long time and once you enter the door you understand why. They have updated the bar area to accommodate anxious diners for the short wait to enjoy some seafood.

We love this place and always look forward to eating here. The service is wonderful and the food is always delicious. We eat here at least once a month. Except when they're closed from thanksgiving until February.

if you want a clean but homey fish joint, this family run business dating from 1960s is a spot you'll enjoy. Casual and always dependable, service is good, fish great, and very nice desserts. Salads ok but they could use better greens like spring greens and arugula and tomatoes - coffee mediocre. as a matter of fact, i throw down... More

Lee's Inlet Kitchen is a family favorite. The seafood is fresh, the salads are delicious and the service is great. We usually order broiled shrimp or shrimp salad. All of the food is good.

Lee's has been a part of Inlet dining for years and is popular. I had shrimp 'n grits which very good but the portion was small. More suited to my elderly mother than a middle aged man. The atomsphere is what you might expect in a place that grew with added on additions . Cozy/crowded seating in a number of... More

We went to Lee’s Inlet Kitchen twice during a recent stay at Litchfield By the Sea in Pawley’s Island. The Seafood Combination (Fried Flounder, Deviled Crab and Shrimp) on the early lite menu is just the perfect portion of food for us at very reasonable price. So glad Lee’s was spared by Hurricane Matthew.

There seem to be hundreds of seafood restaurants within a very few miles up and down the SC coast and some, like Lee's, have stood the test of time. The loyalty of those who spend summers here or live here year round have insured the success of Lee's Inlet Restaurant. Simple decor suits the casual atmosphere, although a little more... More
