Ranked #1 at the MarshWalk by our viewers, if you have not been to the Wicked Tuna you are certainly missing out.

Drunken Jack’s is the place to go if you are looking for live entertainment and fun with family and friends. Click here to take a look at the food and drink menu. Stop by this restaurant for great drinks accompanied by great views. When you’re looking out to the inlet, one thing you may be shocked to see is a small island with only goats and peacocks. For over 20 years the owners of Drunken Jack’s have placed goats and more recently added peacocks on what’s known as “Goat Island”. This strange view does have a purpose, and it is to keep the underbrush on the island under control. But don’t worry, these animals are removed during Hurricanes and in the winter months.

Last but not least, if you are looking to eat out in Murrells Inlet, Hot Fish Club is located just south of the MarshWalk and has tied for the number one spot in recommended places to eat.
