Murrells Inlet Restaurants: Local Favorites

What’s better than eating a big ol’ plate of fried seafood while relaxing in a comfy chair as you gaze out into the waterway? How about doing so only a few minutes from the Inlet Sports Lodge? Talk about convenience!

Murrells Inlet is known as the seafood capital of South Carolina, so there really is no better place to enjoy a taste of the sea. Murrells Inlet restaurants are known for much more than seafood though. We have compiled a small list of our favorite, local spots relatively close to the Inlet Sports Lodge to fill up your belly!

Costa Coastal Kitchen & Bar –

This one isn’t on our list just because it’s our on-site restaurant, but because it’s the #1 restaurant in Murrells Inlet (according to Yelp & TripAdvisor). That’s right…#1! Costa serves traditional Italian fare with a classic twist. They are also known for their seared scallops and fresh fish options. If you enjoy your food with a little heat, give the Spicy Crab & Lemon pasta dish a shot. Fresh crab is mixed in with oven roasted tomatoes, charred corn, preserved lemon, arugula, and chili pepper tossed with fresh fettuccine. It’s FABULOUS!

Prosser’s BBQ –

If you are in the south, you expect good barbecue. You won’t be disappointed if you head to Prossers! From succulent pulled pork to the best fried chicken you will ever eat, their BBQ buffet has everything you would expect and more. After you chow down on homemade mac & cheese, chicken bog and collard greens, make sure you save some room for some banana pudding. It’s not a southern meal without some banana puddin’! This BBQ joint is only a handful of miles from the Lodge.

Hot Fish Club –

To most locals, the Hot Fish Club is known for their nightlife. After all, Murrells Inlet is known as a quant little drinking village with a fishing problem! Before you let loose and party, make sure you put some food in your belly. Start out with the Blue Crab Fondue then ease your way into some Lobster Pot Pie. No, that’s not a type-o. The Lobster Pot Pie is filled with large chunks of lobster, shrimp & scallops in a creamy white wine cream sauce topped with scratch-made puff pastry for an added crunch. It’s one of those meals that just warms up your soul!

River City Cafe –

In the mood for a juicy burger? Look no further than River City Cafe! With multiple locations across the Grand Strand of Myrtle Beach, it’s easy to fill that void in your stomach with some delicious meat. Lucky for you, there is a River City right down the street from Inlet Sports Lodge. All of their burgers (beef, turkey or chicken) are phenomenal. Our recommendation is the California Pizza Burger that is topped with a fried provolone cheese patty, pepperoni & marinara sauce. It’s absolutely unreal! You would also be doing yourself an injustice if you went to River City Cafe and left without getting their onion rings, which are the largest we have ever seen, anywhere! Another added bonus are the complimentary peanuts that you can snack on as you wait for your food.

So as you can see, the Murrells Inlet restaurants in the area offer everything you could want…and more. If you are interested in staying in the area so that you can enjoy each one of these places at your disposal, give Inlet Sports Lodge a call at 877.357.6106 and we will take care of you!
