My friends and I from college got together last May at the beach and we decided to give Drunken Jacks a try. I ordered the filet which was excellent. My friends ordered steak and salmon and they all raved about the food. We will be visiting again this year.

This place was recommended years ago by a local friend while vacationing down there. We go to Surfside every year. Food and service is fantastic, the wait depends on when you go (duh). If you go at peak time anywhere in MB at a good restaraunt, you are going to wait!!! The views are great esp if seated by the windows and I have never had a bad experience yet. Love this place!

Every time we go to Myrtle Beach we eat at Drunkin Jacks the first night we are there and the last night we are there. Hush Puppies are out of this world and the best sea food in South Carolina. The wait is always a little long but it is well worth the wait.

We decided to kick off of first beach vacation with our four month old at Drunken Jacks. Turns out, it was a poor decision. We arrive and have to interrupt the hostess from her 17yr old flirtation session with what turns out to be her manager (didn't know that at the time). We wait for 30 minutes and are seated. Our server was very cordial and did a great job. We found several rotten pieces of salad on the salad bar, but OK that happens. We can look past that. Then our food arrives and really isn't what we expected and certainly not worth 20-25 dollars per plate. We start to wind down our dinner when we spot a tiny bug on the plate of lemons that was brought out. OK, again we can look past this. Then we see another tiny bug on our table and we start to get suspicious. We ask for the check right after we see bug #3, which is a full grown cockroach on the wall behind our table. It wasn't until then that we realized that the previous 2 bugs were baby cockroaches! We get our check and go to leave when we think we should probably say something to the manager about the cockroaches. He arrives, remember that he's the one flirting with the front of the house staff, and proceeds to tell us that they can't do anything about the cockroaches being on the water and that he wasn't surprised to see more activity since they sprayed 3 days ago. I'm sorry, but this was the first and last time we will ever visit Drunken Jacks. Overpriced for mediocre food and then we spot 3 cockroaches in the 30 minutes we are there. No thanks.

Our 1st time at Drunken Jacks as our 1st trip to Myrtle Beach. We had an hour wait for a table, but plenty of room at the bar to enjoy a drink or two. Bar tender very attentive, refilling my soda glass numerous times. Dinner was really,really good. I had the crab cakes which were good size and so light and fluffy, yummy. My husband had the small size flounder which was still a really big piece. The hush puppies were so delicious and a basket full. Dessert was key lime pie, to die for. Our wait or was excellent, always checking on us, keeping us happy. Would recommend this to anyone for a nice dinner out. Prices were reasonable.

Omg! We went to Drunken Jacks 1st time ever. It was fabulous !! We had our tea and appetizers in the lower level at the bar while waiting on a table. Bacon wrapped shrimp was fantastic!!! Then we were seated, can you say hush puppies !!! Great!!! We ordered steak for our meals and it was cooked exactly the way we wanted. It is a little pricey, but a wonderful meal. We will return in August when we are back in myrtle beach!!!

We always went for lunch and had bloody marys and an appetizer.. Or she crab soup...ummmm. Always too crowded for dinner. So we went to other places we had not tried and got in and had great food there.. I don't think there is a bad place in murrells inlet.. Heck the atmosphere and the scenery makes up for it all doesn't it.. But love drunken jacks.. Got a t shirt.. Love it.. We will be back..

We loved this restaurant,,our waitress was friendly and informative. We also loved the views , they were cool. If you get the chance to go, you have to try the sweet potato fries, awesome, as was everything we had. Plan on going there again.

LOL at those complaining about wait times in Myrtle Beach, you do know they don't take reservations right? And the wait times can be long because they are popular and MB is the summer is crowded everywhere right? So we relax in the downstairs lounge have a cocktail and wait for a table. The Steak Neptune is outstanding, nice salad bar, but I'd prefer they get rid of the bar and do salads with the meal. Everything they serve is first rate, but I'd have to say this isn't a place to really bring kids because of the wait times, and it can be pricy, and the downstairs lounge is the only sensible place to wait. I can't believe people wait outside in the heat, it probably accounts for some of the neg rep, but if your there before 5 it's not agonizing. I would highly recommend DJ's we always have dinner here during our week in town.

We had a terrible experience at Druken Jacks. The hostess acted as if she didn't care if you ate there or not. The wait was an hour long. The appetizers portions were small and expensive. Seafood entrees were overcooked and expensive, The waitress was mean. We won't go back. Too many other restaurants in the area.

We had lunch and the food was very good. There were no "lunch" portions, so there were some leftovers, and due to our plans to shop, we could not take with us. The she crab soup was awesome, but the coleslaw was not very cold, so was a little wary to eat it, as it was mayo -based. The service was great, and our iced tea was continuously filled.

Waited over two hours to be seated. Was told very popular resturant. Food was poor in comparison to many other eateries in the area. Was so very disappointed. Pricing was a bit high for the quality... If you want good seafood, service and atmosphere,,, this is not the place to waste your time for the long wait.. Dessert was just fair, a well. Spent quite some time in the bar area waiting and the service there was poor, the entertainment poor. Very disappointed and ruined my evening with my husband. :(

I was a little concerned after reading some of the negative reviews,but decided ti try it anyway. I know that in the prime vacation season there may be a long wait, but in late August we we told 20 minutes, so when to the bar for a drink. Les than ten minutes later we were seated. Our waiter Jessie was very attentive,yet busy. I had oysters on the half shell and were as good and juicy as the one I get in Apalachicola. The steak Neptune was shared by my wife and I, no charge for extra plate and the steak,shrimp crab scallops and lobster were cooked to perfection. Give Drunken Jacks a try, you will be glad you did

Sure you may have a bit of a wait. If you want good food, and good service your in company with many other smart diners. We've been there every year and make it a point to go. Never disappointed. I suggest trying the King Crab legs. They are huge, fresh and prepared just right. Two can split that meal and perhaps order a salad or another entree to split with the legs. Delicious.
