The best shrimp and grits! Shrimp and smoked sausage with a peppercorn cream gravy with diced tomatoes, grits, and delicious hush puppies on the side! It's a perfect combination! The restaurant also had a lot of character and the service was great!

Since its next to impossible to find decent seafood in MB without costing an arm & leg, we headed to Murrell's Inlet to try our luck. After reading many different reviews for different locations, we ended up at the Inlet Crab House & Raw Bar. I got the Shrimp & Grits which was very good. My fiancé got the seafood... More

Some of the best food in the inlet. She crab soup is sooooo good. Server is friendly and personable. The hush puppies themselves are worth the trip

Whenever I am alone, passing through Murrells Inlet, and hunger, I head tot he Inlet Crab. I enjoy the friend seafood baskets. Sometimes I get friend fish. Other times, I am in the mood for fried grouper bites. I have tried to she crab soup on occasions. It is tasty. A relaxed place with good food.

Some food is good - like the fried grouper. And, you get an appropriate portion for the price. The fried oysters were disappointing (and I've had a lot of fried oysters in my lifetime!). The oysters were under cooked and soggy, and had to be sent back to be cooked some more, which always negatively impacts the dining experience since... More

I recently started working in Murrells Inlet and decided to stop into the Inlet Crab House on my way home from work for an early dinner. Had the pleasure of having Kendall as my server. For dinner, I chose a bowl of the New England Clam Chowder and a Grouper Basket. The Chowder was some of the best I have... More
