Becks is not what it used to be. I've eaten it various calabash seafood restaurants for over 40 years. The food at Becks was greasy and overpriced I probably won't go back

Never again! I'm southern and love fried food but this was pure grease. The oysters were tiny and fried to death. I couldn't even taste them. The $15 steak was almost inedible. The baked potato was pretty good but they didn't have real butter. Very disappointing.

I have been dining at beckís for more than 50 years. It has no competition. Yes, itís a dump, noisy, and takes forever to get a table, unless you want to eat dinner in the middle of the afternoon. But, the food is out of this world, and dirt cheap. Best hush puppies in the universe. Yes, the food is not good for you, but it is scrumptious in you. Remember, you donít eat here 3 times week. Youíre on vacation, indulge yourself! .

I I was in the restaurant business for 20 years until I retired and I will say that unfortunately, people do not usually write reviews when they are happy...they do however love to voice their opinions when they are dissatisfied. That is the reason I try to write a positive review when I stumble across a great restaurant. With that being said, I thought Beck's was cleaner than any other place I have been in this area. Their Sanitation grade was outstanding (as a former restaurantuer I can be a little obsessive about this) and the food was hot, fresh and quick. The service was great and the price can't be beat. Taking my family back tonight for their all you can eat crablegs!

Yuck, this was the nastiest food I have ever had. If you want good seafood I would recommend "Long John Silvers" or "Captains D's", that would be a better choice.

I go every year on vacation and have been for many many years. Outstanding food and service at a reasonable price. Those that gave bad reviews are people who cannot be pleased. Please don't come back so the rest of us that love it want have to wait in line on vacation to get in.

This is by far the best place to eat in Calabash - and we have tried them all! Dont pay twice the price to eat on the waterfront - just go to Beck's to have a wonderful, affordable meal and then walk on down to the water! From the hushpuppies to the dessert and everything in between - this is the place!!!

I have lived in Chicago for 30 years now and was delighted to find the fried shrimp and oysters at Becks just as good as I remembered from my visits when I went to college in NC in the early 70's. Although Chicago has outstanding fresh seafood of all kinds, they have no clue how to make fried seafood. Nothing fancy at Becks, just awesome fried seafood. My wife is a very healthy eater and eschews fried foods but LOVED her fried shrimp and oysters. Light tasting coating with no greasy aftertaste that allows the flavor of the shrimp and oysters to blossom. Their slightly sweet hushpuppies are right up there with any I have eaten. The baked potato was excellennt and their iced tea is fresh and a perfect complimernt to their fried offerings.

I am a local that eats in this area all the time. I usually go to the Seafood Hut or Ellas if th Hut has a long line. I decided to try Becks one day and it was a mistake. It was for lunch and there were only a few people in there so I should have known something. I sat for at least 10 minutes before the waitresses could figure out which one had my table. Then I ordered and it took 20 minutes to get my fried flounder lunch plate. I ordered with baked potato and it came with fries. Had to ask waitress 2 times for my hushpuppies and refill on tea. Food was not good and service was worse. Never again!!!

Met with the manager back in February 2010, explained to her that we wished to have our reheasal dinner there for about 25-30 people she promised she could do the job and would have everything looking great when we arrived on May 28,2010. We all arrived at the time which we had given the manager previously. Nothing was set up, the workers had no idea why we were all there, they had no clue what was going on. They call the manager who says she is on her way, so we wait and wait, and finally said lets get this on,because we were so tired of waiting....the food was so greasy and nasty, I was totally disgusted with the service, I would not wish this food or service on my worst enemy....NASTY,NASTY,NASTY!!!!.....then to top it off the manager has the nerve to call my wife and tell her that we are a pathetic couple for not understanding her being late and not informing her workers about our dinner arrangements.....BECKS is NASTY, the food is NASTY, the staff and the manager are INCOMPETENT.....THANKS BECKS FOR RUINING A SPECIAL TIME IN OUR LIVES......I HOPE EVERYONE EATS ELSEWHERE AND THIS PLACE GOES OUT OF BUSINESS.....BECKS SUCKS AND SO DOES THEIR FOOD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

We had been to Becks as a large group of extended family before and had a great experience. We were so surprised to be very disappointed recently! We were put off so that our 45 minute wait turned into an hour and a half with many promises of just a couple more minutes. The service was slow and poor with the waiter complaining about the kitchen staff. Then he served our "entrees" with items being left off plates, like both cole slaw and baked potatoes, because the kitchen was running out of everything. They tried to substitute 7 french fries on a plate instead. When we asked to speak to the manager we were given a run around, and little help.

I am very disgusted at the quality of the food for the money we paid. The meal cost $25.99 per person and was not worth it at all. I would never go there again or recommend this restaurant to anyone.

If you want fish on a fast-food budget, eat lunch here. For $6, you can get a seafood combo lunch with slaw & potato. It's not fancy, but it's good.

The hushpuppies were cold. That's usually my favorite part. Orderd a Captains Platter. My wife ordered a combination of shrimp and flounder. My wifes Baked potato was way over baked and brown and hard. My french fries finally came when I had finished my meal. Oh, and had to wait for deviled crab and clam strips. They werent ready when the food was brought out. I'm certain that wouldn't be the waitresses fault. Sounds like a problem in the kitchen to me. The lady operating the cash register was very rude and short with us. She asked if everything was okay. Not sure why because she clearly didn't care to hear our answer. I would not recommend this restaurant. We did try the seafood hut down the street and were very pleased. I would suggest pass by Beck's and spend your money at The Seafood Hut. Much better food and very friendly staff!!

Drove from M.B. to have lunch in famous Calabash local spot. Nasty and overpriced---Had the Shrimp boil---swear it was bait---served with nasty green cole slaw ,chewy fries and the worst cold hushpuppies I ever ate. And how about the cocktail sauce served warm on the table in a plastic squirt bottle---nice touch. Don't waste your gas or your money just eat at your local bait shop or go to Long Johns Silver---YUK.

It was our first night in Myrtle Beach and we all wanted a nice seafood dinner. I came online to check out local seafood restaurants and found Becks. The reviews were good --- and the food was GREAT! Nothing fancy, but some of the best seafood we have ever eaten! Becks will be a regular stop on our next Myrtle Beach trip! Delicious!!!

Great seafood! We ventured from our "fave" place because the line was too long and tried Beck's for the first time. We have changed our favorite! Great portions, clean and stylish atmosphere, and fresh delicious food! The hushpuppies were addicting. Had a family of 16 and we had to wait a little while but it was definitely worth the wait! We will be back!

In my opinion, this is a lower-end type seafood place. They do not have a great selection of food. The service level is not up to par either. If you are going to spend the money for a family of four , then I would suggest you add a few more dollars and take your family somewhere nice. This place could benefit from a good cleaning service.

We;re going to be in Myrtle Beach for the first time since I was 14!! Beck's was my favorite place to go then, and it's so nice to see that their tradition lives on!! I remember waiting in line for quite a while, and every time the wait was definitely worth it!! Over 30 years!! The hush puppies were awesome!! Not to mention too, the popcorn shrimp! Yes, I was a kid, then. I'm so looking forward to being in Calabash and the Little River area and sharing that same, good, home feel of Beck's with my own twins!! Thanks Beck's for keeping the "good stuff" going!!

Having eaten at seafood places all around the Myrtle Beach area... this is the top. If you love shrimp the any place in Calabash is where to eat, but if you want the best the Becks is where its at. The shrimp is amazing and the hush puppies are out of this world! I would eat there everyday if I could. Not only is the food good, but you can not beat their lunch prices and the portions of food that you get for the price. The same can be said for the dinner as well.

Where do I start. My family and I come down to myrtle beach every year, we took a ride into calabash , thank god there are more restaurants to eat at other then this one. The service was average but they needed more on to work. It took a long time to get the food and when it finally came it was cold. I mentioned this to the young girl up front ,but she seemed not to really care. Next time we come down we will definitely go somewhere else..

My husband and I first ate at Beck's in 1992, and we have returned there every time we visit the Myrtle Beach area. BY far, it is our favorite place for seafood since we're not fans of the buffets. Beck's is a no-frills restaurant, but the food makes up for that. We usually order platters of fried shrimp, crab, etc., and they are wonderful. You get plenty for your money, too. The hushpuppies are always a highlight (be careful not to fill up on 'em before your food comes to the table)! We have brought other folks here before, and they come away loving Becks' and wanting to go back. We are looking forward to a return visit this summer.

My husband and I left had eaten at Bemini's in Myrtle Beach which left us wanting a better experience with seafood. We went through Calabash and didn't know where we would stop. Beck's caught our eye and we stopped and are hooked. It will become a routine stop from our Myrtle Beach trips to Wilson, NC. The food was excellent and fresh. The service is your expected small town restaurant style. You will get seated quickly, but it may take a little wait to take your order and get your food. However, it is well worth the wait!!! I highly recommend it. As stated, we will be back over and over again.

Eat here at your own risk. My husband and I were there 10/3/07, not in the busy tourist season. We always like to order take-out but that shouldn't matter the quality, etc. We both ordered different seafood platters, one oyster and the other scallops. We wanted tossed salad instead of cole slaw so we had to pay an extra 2.50 each for a very tiny tossed salad, which we could tolerate. We had to ask for tarter and cocktail sauce or they wouldn't have given us any. When we got back to our condo we saw that instead of the scallop platter there was Just fish. The oysters were tough and the french fries tasted like card board which were thrown away. My husband called the rest. when he found out we had been given the wrong order in hopes of some type of compensation. The manager was very rude saying all she would do was to re-emburse our credit card 1.00. It's now been almost 3 weeks and our credit card has not been re-embursed anything. We will never eat there again!!

We left North Myrtle Beach not really knowing where we would eat. We ended up in Calabash. There were 5 of us eating, and we were told the wait would be about 30 minutes. We actually waited less than 10. The hush puppies were excellent, some of the best I've ever had. The food was served fresh, hot, and quickly to be as packed as the restaurant was. As another reviewer said, this is not a white tablecloth fine dining experience. But I had better fried shrimp at Beck's than anywhere else we ate in the Myrtle Beach area. I also had the largest portion, for the smallest price. A GREAT find for a short drive...and worth it!

The food was great, very fresh. The service, however, needs some work The waitress was accomodating but very blunt and obviously not a people person. I asked about a buffet and she told me that there were no buffets in Calabash and we "might as well go to Myrtle Beach". She was nothing in comparision to the lady behind the register. When my fiance when to pay the bill, she was on the phone and stayed on the phone. She didn't speak to him, but held out her hand to take the money. No one ever said thank you , come again or anything. WE will look for a place with fresh seafood and nicer people next time.

I've eaten at Beck's for over 30 years. It hasn't changed and I hope it never does. Whenever your in the Myrtle Beach area and are looking for excellent seafood my first recommendation would be Beck's. Don't expect to get that "big city" flair you might expect up north, but do expect to eat some of the best seafood you'll ever put past your lips. We have a vacation planned to MB in May and I'm already looking forward to that short drive north the where you'll get seafood (especially the Calash shrimp) at it's best. BECK'S.

Austin (transplant From Wilmington), Texas

Growing up in Wilmington in the 1960s, we'd drive the two-lane black top down to Calabash for Sunday dinner (lunch, for those not from the South). We tried the 5 or so other restaurants down there, but always went back to Beck's. Basic fare of small, wonderfully fried shrimp, cole slaw, and the best hushpuppies in the world. I went to college, then grad school, then lived overseas, then landed in Texas. Almost 30 years later, I drove back to Calabash...regretfully, now an extension almost of Myrtle Beach. But Beck's was still there--cindar block building, piping hot hush puppies, and little fried shrimp. That's what one should go to Calabash for! If you want "fancy dishes," white linen table cloths, and "servers" that know a wine list, this is not for you. But if you want want the Calabash used to be, the seafood that made it famous, etc., Beck's is the place.

We have dined at Beck's six times since we moved to NMB in Feb, 2006. We had tried other seafood restruants at Calabash for years but never tried Becks...It is by far the best. We will continue to dine at Beck's while trying others inbetween, to see if we can discover a seafood restruant any better.

I've been eating at Beck's for over 40 years, first with my parents on our annual vacations to N Myrtle Beach, then with my husband & kids whenever we could get to the NMB area for vacations. It's never disappointed. We were just there again last week & ended up eating there 3 times (because Steven's in Little River was closed). Their lunch specials are an excellent value & plenty of food. For dinner we ended up having a "senior" combo, which again was more than enough food for us - even a small "regular" platter is almost too much food. Fried shrimp, oysters & flounder were all wonderful, not to mention those hushpuppies - I took some home to my mom, who isn't able to travel anymore. We had no problems with service or wait time, probably mostly because of the time of year. We'll always eat at Beck's when we're in the area.

We're vacationing in Ocean Isle Beach for the first time, and landed at Becks the other night for dinner. We were looking for good seafood and hadn't done any research. Someone in our party of 14 picked Beck's at random I think. We waited about 30 minutes to be seated. It was a busy place, and having a large group probably didn't make it easier on the waitress, but the ordering process took a while, and the food took even longer to arrive (45 minutes). My broiled seafood platter was good, as were the steamed crab legs. The rest of our group had various fried seafood, and generally did not like their food, complaining that it was not hot, or not that good.

We're heading back to Calabash tonight to try an alternate seafood restaurant.

I don't think I would recommend Beck's at this time.
