We love Crab Catchers but they are so expensive we only go once or twice a year. For the prices the food should be served on real plates with cloth napkins not in a plastic basket.

Think twice before going!!!! We were really excited to have finally made it to little river to eat at Crab Catchers. We have heard nothing but good things for years however our experience was horrible. Besides waiting for a while for our order to be taken, the menu has changed... They no longer have the yummy seafood dips they've always had, we were served a cold dip in "to go" side cups (what you get sides of dressing in) with club crackers. Then, after drinking all of my water, I looked down to realize the bottom of the cup was covered in mold/mildew. I hoped it was on the outside but nope, I could scrape it off with my straw and it was now floating in my water. When I approached the manager about it, he was very rude and said... Oh I know what that is, it's tea residue.... No, sir, It's not tea residue. It's mildew. He looked up and said "sorry." I said back, sorry doesn't quite cut it, I have been drinking mold. That's unacceptable, unhealthy and unsanitary! He said with an attitude "well what do you want me to do about it." How about act like a manger and do something more! He got frustrated at this request and said, fine your meal is taken care of. (Not what I was after... Even with worse experiences, we've never accepted a free meal). Meanwhile, a young male server was laughing. I turned to him and said, is there something you find funny? He said yeah how you're yelling at my Manager. I said, I'm not yelling, I'm having an adult conversation. At his age and maturity level, He couldn't possibly understand that. Feel Free to go if you want to experience rude wait staff, moldy drinks and crappy food. We've had MUCH better food for the same price in Murrells inlet. If the restaurant keeps at this pace, it's going to be out of business soon.

Love this place and have been going for 3 years. Best Crab Legs I have found. Awesome coconut creme pie and chocolate creme pie. The Blue crab bites and alligator bites are the best.

Went to Crab Catchers after reading the good reviews and we were not disappointed. We had broiled shrimp and crab cakes and both were delicious. We enjoyed our evening so much we went back again before leaving the beach.

I've been there around 3 different times and it is well worth the 8 hour drive for the deep fried corn on the cob......can't wait to get there this year...

I'm a picky picky person when it comes to eating out and this was WONDERFUL... great food, great prices, great service. we ate outside on the water. it was exactly what you imagine when you think of a good old country restaraunt on the water. we got a cold seafood dip with warm tortilla chips to start.. DELICIOUS. I got the scallops, grilled. they were amazing (so much better than the 4 $30 scallops in high end places) they were huge and I had to take half of them home. My mom got the crawfish and she said she hasn't had it that good since she lived in Texas. highly recommend and we're actually going back tonight to get food to go.

My friends and I ate lunch here. Our waitress was Jessica. She was outstanding!!! She helped us with our choices of food as well as giving us pointers about places to go and things to do in the Little River/Myrtle Beach area. We would highly recommend Crab Catchers to enjoy excellent sea food and the atmosphere of watching the boats passing by on the Intercoastal Waterway.

We ordered a fried shrimp dinner and a scallop sandwich without bread. Both were good except the shrimp dinner was served with a almost ice cold baked potato and 2 hush puppies. 2 hush puppies? For the price most places serve a pile of hush puppies and how hard is it to serve a hot baked potato? We will never go back. Just not worth the money.

We went to Crab Catchers yesterday during our last day in Myrtle Beach based on the recommendation of a local. It was pretty easy to find and when we got there it appeared to be a dive. We got in and were seated immediately - this was about 2-3pm on a Monday, so there you go - and Ariel, our server, was great. The food was very fresh; wife got the shrimp sandwich (minus bread) and my son and I got the soft shell crab sandwiches. While the seafood itself was great, and the fried corn and fries were also good, as were the homemade pies - the real shocker came from the pricetag. We felt that for the *amount* of food we got, the price was exhorbitant at over $70 for LUNCH. The food and service, ambience and location were excellent - but the price tag alone will keep me from returning. I can't justify that cost for a dive, no matter how great the food is.

After reading some reviews about Crab Catchers I was excited to try something other than an all you can eat Buffett . My family of seven entered the restaurant and waited to be seated and waited and waited... No one ever greeted us. Finally flagged down a server and asked her if we needed to seat ourselves. She said someone would come to seat us. Again we waited, waited, waited... Then we LEFT!!! I don't mind a wait especially for some good seafood but I do expect to be acknowledged in some form. A simple smile?? Hello?? We will be right with you guys? Can't comment on the food but if it was anything like the hospitality it would be POOR. This was a very disappointing experience for my family.

I was told about crab catchers by friends that have relocated to holden beach. My sister and I were visiting north myrtle and decided to give it a try. Not real impressed with the way they greet you--they don't--you have to go find someone and let them know you are there. The biggest drawback to me was the smoke. It is a bar-like setting, but there is enough space to have a non-smoking section....they do not have one. Sc is behind when it comes to smokefree policies in public places. Now for the food.....oh my gosh it"s great! the seafood gumbo was out of this world! they should put it over rice and call it seafood creole. At first, I thought the prices were too much, but after I had my meal, I was more than satisfied. I even put up with the smoke and went a second time in 4 days! the first time, I had fried shrimp/fried flounder combo. The second time I had fried shrimp only. The shrimp is butterfly shrimp and lightly breaded (i'm southern). My sister had the same thing, only she requested grilled shrimp and flounder. Both of us thought the food was the best we've tasted in years! please make a non-smoking section and we'll be 100% satisfied! and yes, it's rustic, but i'm a health educator and a germ freak and I thought it was clean.
