We eat in various places in Murrells Inlet every summer for the last 18 years. Dockside has the most consistent, fresh and delicious food. Their Shrimp n Grits is absolutely the best dish on the east coast.

My husband and I went for a romantic dinner. The view of the inlet is wonderful and the food was incredible. We had Mahi Mahi as well as the best key lime pie I have had for a while.
