We've stayed in OIB for 5 years now and have had some trouble finding good restaurants. Having tried the North Myrtle and Calabash tourist traps we decided on Crabby Oddwaters at the last minute. We were a party of 16, seated quickly, excellent service by the young man taking care of our table and good quality food starting with some very good hush puppies. My understanding is the catch is brought in daily to the bins in the back. Not a very big place, so i could see how wait times may back up.

had lunch there yesterday. I had the grilled scallop sandwich which came with fries and cole slaw for 7 dollars. It was delicious. You had a choice of sauces. I chose the roumalade which was great. Will certainly go again.

We went in for lunch on a Friday and were the 4th table seated. The menu is very limited but had local shrimp and flounder for lunch so we were happy. After 45 minutes of waiting for our food we flagged down a waitress to inquire. We were growing very restless at this point. No bread no refills and we were hungry. We were told our food was up next so we decided to wait. At the one hour mark our cold fried food came out and our waitress disappeared. She came back halfway through our meal to ask how it was and I explained it was cold. She said they were understaffed, no apology, no how can I fix it, just an oh well. When she finally came back with the check, not compared of course, we asked to see a manager. Well, one never came and we will never return.

We've been here in the past and had no complaints. This time we waited for 45 min for our food, which arrived tasting like it had been sitting under a heat lamp. Crab cakes were the worst I ever ate ( rubbery consistency & dried out) and did not come with the sides listed on the menu. Fried shrimp were good but cold. Stuffed flounder was also dry. After we voiced our concerns to the watiter, he gave us replacements on the shrimp & crab cakes. At that time, we were over the 2.5 Hour ordeal. Prob won't be back.
