We dined at Nance's on November 20, 2013 and were super pleased with our dining experience. Everything from our platters to the pot of oysters we got were absolutely delicious. This is a must for anyone looking for the best seafood.

Never going back! This isn't the Nance's of years past. Service is still bad and now the food is terrible too. Too many other good restaurants in the area to waste time and money here!

My husband and I traveled three hours to celebrate our 1 year Anniversary to wine and dine at Nances because their food is awesome,only to learn they have become non smoking even in the bar! We took our money elsewhere and had a fantastic meal and could smoke.Spent 150.00 at that establishment.Nances has lost out,too bad.

My husband and I have eaten at Nance's numerous times over the past couple of years. Since October, we have been at least once a month. The food has always been good, but the service has been an aggravation. On our most recent visit, the service was horrible, the food was sub-par, and the manager was rude when we expressed our dissatisfaction. I rated the length of time to be seated as poor because there were many empty tables, but the hostess told us the server had asked her to wait before seating us. After we were seated, we only observed him working 3 other tables...not sure why the hold up, because he didn't pay them any more attention than he paid us. We won't be back.

My family and I visited Nances on March 1, 2013. The meal was outstanding. Of course we ordered a pot of steamed oysters that were mouth-watering. I ordered as my entree the Seafood platter. This plate had so much food on it the platter could barely contain it. Of course I had to get a to-go box. It was very delicious and according to the rest of my family their dinners were as well. I would definitely recommend Nance's to anyone looking for great seafood.

HORRIBLE!! Worst place we've ever eaten at in 25 years of visiting Myrtle Beach. Found a 1/2 off early bird deal that they acknowledged prior to sitting down, but failed to honor after we ate. Manager was rude completly ignored us... Filed a better business complaint and they never bothered to respond. Don't Waiste Your Money...

Probably the best seafood I have ever eaten. Our table had the steampot which was amazing and a couple of us also ordered platters. I had the seafood platter fried and it was simply delicious. Would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone looking for fresh, delicious seafood.

After eating at Nance's every year since I can remember the place being in business, this last time eating there was a big disappointment! My family and I make an annual trip to the beach each fall of the year to go fishing. We have always made a point to eat once or twice at Nance's during our weekly stay, as my mom loves the steamed oysters. In recent years, Nance's has offered the "early bird special" between 4-5pm, buy one dinner, get second one half off. We arrived on Tuesday afternoon November 6, 2012, around 4:45 pm to take advantage of the special, as usual. We noticed several others there waiting to get inside the restaurant, and then saw a sign on the door that they won't open until 5pm, due to it being election day. We have been there on election day before, and this has never happened before that I can remember. So we waited to go in for supper, and when we did, they did not offer the early bird special, as it was after 5pm! They were the ones who chose not to open to the public, even tho there were many customers waiting to get in for the special. Well, this didn't sit well with us, but we went on in and were seated promptly near a window. The view is always beautiful, but the service was terrible, and the food was such a disappointment, not like it has always been in the past. We had usually ordered two shore dinners, and some steamed oysters, but since we were not allowed to get the early bird special, we just ordered seafood platters with steamed oysters. The food was bland, over-priced, and the service was horrible. I agree with another person who submitted a review....Lee's Inlet Kitchen, Sarah J's, and the Sea Captain were so much better...there is no comparison! Nance's must have changed hands or something, as the quality of food and the service given was not worth the money we paid. I would not recommend this place ever again. Hopefully, we will find another place to get my mom some steamed oysters for our trip in 2013. I will miss going to Nance's, as it was the place we always went to when we took our annual vacation.

We were there August 4th. The food tasted like it was frozen and never thawed until cooked. My seafood sampler plate was disgusting and bland. The fish was floating in water along with the rest of my meal. My daugher's crab legs were rubbery. My husband complained to the manager and they would not do anything about it. I would not recommend this restaurant to anyone. There were 10 people at our table and the waiter acted like it was a chore to wait on us even though he was gettting a gratuity because there were over 6 people at the table. Our bill was over $100.00 for 4 of us at the table. We come to Myrtle Beach every year for our family vacation and I have never been to a seafood restaurant that didn't know how to cook seafood. This was our first and last time dining at this place. Not only is their food not fit for human consumption they do care about pleasing their customers.

Nah! Seriously, if you want an over priced captain D's /Ryan's, but without the fast in fast food than this is your place. Absolutely redunklious. Never ever, ever going to eat there again. Foe real, you couldn't pay me to eat there again. Next time we're eating at the bait store next door, maybe that's where the fresh seafood is located.

My family and I vacation on the Carolina coast nearly every year.We have frequented Capt. Nance's many times in the past, but I doubt that we will go back. The seafood is only average, the atmoshpere is rather dingy, and the prices are extremely high for what you get. The only redeeming feature of this place is the hush puppies. Take that away and you would be better off eating a "Filet'O-Fish" at the place with the arches.

Last night was my first trip to Nance's. The front desk clerks at the the hotel kept telling us to go since we love seafood. I'm so glad they were right. Its the best whole flounder I've ever had. The potato was cooked perfect and the cole slaw was good and dry the way I like it. The hush puppies were a little too sweet for my taste, but I'm glad. If they were as good as everything else I'd have filled up on them before our food even arrived! I loved the kids menu many options and the view is wonderful.

This was absolutely the worst seafood resturaunt that my family has ever been to. We have been coming to Litchfield Beach and eating at Murrells Inlet for over 30yrs. The food was tough, beyond greasy and tasted old. We tried to address our concerns to the manager who was arrogant and verbalized that she didn't care whether the customers thought the food was below standard. She didn't want to hear any concerns or complaints. From reading the other reviews, I think she had been there and done that quite a few times. The food was way overpriced and they make you pay a very large tip whether you get good service or not. We should have kept driving when the parking lot had plenty of parking at 6:30pm. Wonder Why!!

My family and I have been going to Nanceís for several years. They advertise an early bird special of buy one shore dinner get the 2nd half off. Well this year they decided to take the Ĺ off on the cheapest meal which happened to be my 10 year old sonís kidís meal ($4.00). This never occurred in the past. Manager refused to discuss the issue and said itís always been that way. We will never be back, please be aware. Good food. Poor Management!

We have dined at Nance's for over 30 years, generally for dinner with large parties. We we dissapointed to find that they no longer accept American Express, which we use exclusively. This was the first time that we had been there for lunch on Sunday and were very dissaponted in the quality of the seafood. We ordered broiled flounder and it was dry and appeared to have been frozen. In the future, we will try other resturants.

My friends took me to this seafood restaurant and had said they have taken many friends and family there to eat and no one has ever had one complaint. I certainly agree with them and I found the seafood platter to be the best that I have ever eaten and I have eaten fresh seafood in many places. We are all going back with more friends July 3rd. I cant wait. See you there.

We had been to the original restaurant and had the oyster clusters a few years ago. That one is closed and we found the new one. Stopped in and were told that the oysters were out of season but they had some left. Went back the next day, and were told nope they had none. Oh well ... ordered a doz clams on the half shell. They brought me what would be called "steamers" but on the shell. I told the waitperson that those were too small and she said that people didnt like the big ones so they started serving the small ones. Huh ? All in all I would say overpriced .. bad service, bad food, and would not recommend ....

This restaurant is over rated. The hostess was rude as well as our server. Took 1h45 mn to get seated. When I kindly asked the hostess how much longer it would be, she rolled her eyes at me. When I let the owner know, she looked at me like I was lying. It was like a horror movie. The waitress was so rude, actually, I have never been treated this way in my entire life. We were a group of five from Georgia on business. We chose the restaurant upond recommendation. The seafood platter ( broiled) was so disappointing for the money we spent. I hardly ate it because it was cold when brought out. Anyways, it was a real disappointment. Go to the dead dog next door, that's where we went the next day and everything was perfect, including the service.

This was our first and last visit to Nance's. The waiter never asked if we had ever been here and never mentoned their specialties. Two of us ordered red clam chowder and it was TERRIBLE when he came back he never asked was there a problem and there were two full bowls of soup hardly touched someone else ordered grouper and it tasted like over cooked chicken. This was a terrible experience and we will never return.

We had a party of four in the middle of the week and the place was not that busy but, the food was the worst I have ever eaten . I was told this was fresh seafood, the first lie. The flounder was half cooked and the other half was raw. The scallops were mystery meat, the second lie. We asked to see the management but the waitress said she talked to the cook. We come to South Carolina about six times a year and I'll never come back to this place. And I'll tell others how they will be served in your place of business. HORRID!

My family and I dined at Nance's on 9/4 which was a very busy Labor Day weekend but it was a wonderful dining experience. The staff was so friendly. We ordered mostly seafood dinners which we learned quickly that one platter is enough for two people and we will be sharing the next visit. I got the seafood platter which was scrumptuous. The rest of my family agreed that Nance's is by far the best seafood restaurant we have ever eaten at. We don't get to visit often as we like but we will definitely return each time we vacation in the area. Great job Nance's.

We were told this was the best seafood in Myrtle Beach and I can tell you it was extremely disappointing. We had to take a taxi to the location, the fare was costly and we thought that is okay because the food is supposed to be amazing...well not at all. Very bland all the fish, the sword fish was tasteless, the flounder boring, and the shrimp, scallops and everything we order was very disappointing. The only thing of interest was the Hush Puppies okay. Not worth the price and definitely not worth the 18% they tack on for ovedr six people.

We have eaten at Nance's over the years, but of late it has really not maintained the level of quality that put it in the top tier of Murrell's Inlet restaurants. We ate there in June 2011 and there were only eight or nine other parties despite it being the busy dinner period. The view is great, the service was fine, and the hushpuppies are wonderful. That's where the positives ended for us. The seafood that we ordered fried was heavily battered and much too greasy. The shrimp were very small, and the scallops were mushy. The flounder was ok. Another diner in our party ordered a ribye that came out unbelievably thin and overcooked. If you want seafood, stick with Sarah J's, Lee's Inlet Kitchen, or Sea Captain's House. These three have consistently provided us the best seafood meals over the past five years.

I can't believe the good reviews for this restaurant! My party of four was extremely disappointed! Seamed all the food except for the simple iceberg salad was frozen. Hushpuppies were good. The half pound of shrimp were large and very good, but would be hard to screw up. Clam chowder looked and tasted canned. Crab cakes were eatable. The flounder was overcooked and not eatable. There wore no vegetables available except reheated frozen corn on the cob (like the frozen stuff in a grocery store) my wives flounder was tasteless and similar to what you would except from a cheap buffet.. The tables were sticky silver was cheap glasses were plastic. The quality was equivalent to a bad $5.00 Sandwich shop. Would not consider recommending this restaurant to anyone.

We were down at the beach for the annual Shriner's convention and we decided to look for some good seafood, so we started driving and we drove down to Murrels Inlet and we saw Nance's and decided to stop. It was great. We don't live but about an hour away so it is no problem to drive down there on the weekends. My husband also added to thank you for having a lunch time seafood menu. Thank you so much for your hospitality. We will be back.

My wife and I eat at Nance's last summer(2010). My wife eat a filet mignon that was cooked perfectly and I ate a fried seafood platter, which the portions was huge, battered and fried perfectly. The food was excelent. Our server, Deborah was a sweetheart and probably the best server i have ever had, even better than other servers I had at Nances before. The only problem with the atmosphere was the manager that followed our waitress through the dining room cussing, every other word was the "F" word. We left the girl extra on her tip after seeing how she was being treated. I don't know what the managers name is, but the way he is towards employees and talks too them that way in front of customers, maybe the owner should look for someone to replace him. Over all it was great and we will return in 2011, hope Deborah is working when we return.

Visited Nance's for an early dinner in March, 2011. My husband loved the fried seafood platter. (the scallops were the lg.sea scallop variety) I ordered broiled scallops ( which was offered on the menu) and rec'd tiny scallops that looked like they had been simmered in liquid. They had a sprinkling of paprika on them but had no flavor or taste at all. I will say that the cole slaw was very good. Since I try not to eat fried food; I would not go back there

Every place has a policy, and waiting till your whole party is there to be seated is one of theirs. Which obviously helps out the server to better serve you. The way you're treated obviously has a lot to what attitude you bring yourself..

Went here a few months ago and found myself being waited upon by a punk kid. We ordered our food and he didn't give us any plates. I had to get up and ask for plates so we could eat. He would come "check" on us every 15 minutes it seemed. He was so rude to my girlfriend and I that thinking about the experience fills me with anger. I think i heard him try to tell the manager that my girlfriend and I were trying to skip the check in order to steer the focus off himself and make us look like we did something wrong. It was an amazement that I didn't knock him out in the restaurant

My husband, Mother-In-Law and I went to eat at Nance's last night. We are locals so we have been there a few times. My husband and Mother-In-Law ordered Oysters. My husband got Oysters that were in big clusters like Oysters usually are. My Mother In Law had a pan full of just one single Oyster and they were so small. We told our waitress and she went and got someone else who said that the small single Oyster was a typical Murrells Inlet Oyster and the big ones were not. WHAT??? Of course my husband told her that we were locals and we knew what Oysters looked like. It looked like they had taken the bottom of the pan and dumped them in her pan and served them to her. What was crazy was the Oysters came from the same place and one was a typical Murrells Inlet Oyster and the other one was not. The lady just walked off. You know this is the worse customer service EVER!! She should have said let me go back and get you another pan. She stood there and argued which is not what she should have done.We will never go back again and we will not recommend Nance's to anyone like we have in the past.

I never knew how much people whined until I started reading some reviews on this website. To the people that complain about not being seated until your whole group has arrived that is the norm at most restaurants I've waited tables many years n there's not many things more aggravating than a portion of your table seated n strsgglers coming in one at a time. Usually you are not our only table. And maybe the hostess was just doing her job(ever consider that)? That being said I've eaten at this restaurant many times n always walk away with a to go box. Portions are way more than I can eat n I have never had a bad meal there. Keep up the good work.

Dined on 10/9/2010 at 4:00 pm. Both hostesses were rude. We were not to be seated until all of our party arrived. You know how that is. You always have a couple of straglers who can't get there on time. We had several aged individuals who really needed to be seated, but the hostesses were just downright nasty. That being said, the hushpuppies are delicious, but they are very chincy with the hushpuppies. Ask for some more gratis be prepared for more nastiness. The fried seafood was good. The portions were light and the dishes were overpriced. Not a great experience. We will not be back.

Paulianna if you truly are the owner like you said I would be ashamed to admit it. When addressing a customer the least you could do is get off your cell phone. Especially if they are coming back because YOUR ESTABLISHMENT forgot to add the side dish to the to go order. Nothing makes a person want to post a comment more than when a person claims to be the owner of an establishment and they are just rude and disrespectful. I hope this is an eye opener for you and you realize that LOCALS keep you in business during the off season. I will not be back and I will never recommend this place to anyone when they visit. Let's face it you are just one of 100's of local eateries and word of mouth from locals is what drives small business in this little town. Good luck and I hope you change your ways.

Nance's used to be a great place on the Inlet to have a meal and enjoy the beautiful scenery. The quality of the food has gone down and the prices are quite high considering the food. The dining room is shabby and felt dirty. The woman's restroom was disgusting. The hushpuppies and the view were the only good thing still there.

I visit the beach at least 10-12 times each year and I never make a trip without going to Nance's. The food is fantastic!! The longest I've waited to be seated is about 45 minutes. The servers are pleasant but sometimes the wait for food can be long (but its worth it). Nice view of the marsh, especially if you get a window seat.

My wife, daughter and I just returned from our first of many trips to SC and Nance's. The excellent food was complimented by the superior and pleasant service by Deborah, our waitress. We were immediately seated at a window overlooking the salt marshes. The ambiance was typical for these low country restaurants with the noise level at a comfortable level for us not too loud and we were able to converse and hear one another easily. Deborah gave us a quick lesson on shucking the oysters, and also told us a little about the local areas where they were harvested from. All in all an excellent and fun dining experience.

.We visited Nance's Oct.09 because we had been the year before and enjoyed it very much. This last visit was horrible. My shrimp had a metal taste. They replaced it with flounder which was poor, too much breading. I could not eat it My husband had a seafood platter which was also fair. We had poor service with 2 different waiters. Our first one had to go home because her name was pulled, and they were very slow. For l long spell no one seemed to be taking care of us. Window were so dirty we could not see out onto the marsh. The year before it had been so good we were looking forward to returning. Due to such a bad experence, we will not be returning to Nance's ever. We are looking for another place to eat. We have eaten much better seafood in the Raleigh/Durham area in NC.

We are a local couple who was at Nance's restaurant with an out of town couple on Wednesday night, March 3rd. Two of us ordered the seafood combo which included oysters and one ordered just oysters. They were so tough that they could not be eaten and had to be left on the plate. When we reported this to the waitress she said she would talk to the kitchen. She reported back to our table that they were "imported" and "sorry" about that. We have been frequent visitors to this restaurant over the years but felt this was not a satisfactory response considering the price that was paid. There is too much competition for our dollars in Myrtle Beach, SC. and many great restaurants. We will not be returning to Nance's Restaurant.

This is one the best seafood restaurants on the east coast that I have dined at. We had a group of 8 and everyone was pleased. Prices are very reasonable for a seafood restaurant. The hushpuppies are delicious. We had the local steamed oysters and they were so good. We also had a variety of entrees including the grouper which was declicious. Next time we go, I am going to try the steampot that the table next to us got that looked and smelled scrumptious. We will definitely return on our next trip and recommend highly to our friends and family. Glad we found your place and keep up the good work.

We visited on Sept 24th 09. the only reason we drove from Surfside to MI was for Nances and "Oysters" the service was great the place has some history to it, you notice that as soon as you walk in, They dident have any local oysters they just had gulf oysters. (they said its still a little hot out side for the local ones) everything in my opinion was great. IF YOU want oysters and you wanna shuck, thats the place! they have a hole cut in the middle of the table and you throw your shells in the can under the hole.

Our party of 4 went to Nance's on Tuesday, 9/21 for dinner largely because of positive reviews on this web site. Having now been there, the meal was OK but the service left a lot to be desired. Our waitress just couldn't get it together. My wife ordered a platter of fried shrimp, flounder and scallops, but when the meal came out the flounder was missing. I ordered steak and fried shrimp. The steak came out by itself, along with the excuse from the waitress that she was currently having them cook my shrimp so they weren't cold when they came out. They weren't hot when I got them anyway. I must say when my wife's flounder came out, it was the best thing I tasted that night. The steak was also cooked quite a bit more than medium as I ordered it. The couple with us seemed to fair a little better, and their broiled seafood looked more appetizing than our meals did. Overall, I would probably go back to Nance's and hope for a better waitress.

I have a new favorite in Murrell's Inlet. Nance's is the best. Their clams were steamed to perfection, their fried shrimp was lightly breaded, very fresh tasting, and not overcooked like those chain seafood restaurants. Service was great, and the marsh views at sunset were wonderful. Highly recommend, but get there early, as it is the worst kept secret around, and others feel just as enthusiatic about this place as I do. After 6:30, you're looking at an hour plus wait to be seated.

Great Oysters!! There was a line when we arrived (around 6:30) but we only waited 10 mins. very good service, fast efficient, professional, yet we didn't feel rushed. We had a party of 6 and all enjoyed what we had. Great views, rustic atmosphere, casual. Not fine dining but relaxed and friendly, this place has it all. Short drive from Myrtle Beach(10min) far enough off the beaten path and away from the buffetts and franchises. This place was reccommended by a bartender in Surfside and she was right on, it was great we'll be back every time we go to the beach.

Nance's is the best seafood we've found in the Myrtle Beach area, but it's not the best seafood I've ever eaten. We usually go to Nance's 1-2 times during our annual vacation there. We also usually try a new seafood place and are usually disappointed. Nance's has never disappointed us. The wait and the noise are typical of beach restaurants. Our service has always been good. The views of the sound, the hushpuppies and honey butter, stuffed flounder, and raw oysters are great. My husband usually gets steamed clams and enjoys them. The salads, baked potatoes, and french fries could be much better. I'm not saying Nance's is phenomenal, but it's better than any other local seafood place we've found in the area.

We came in with a group of 8 and not one of us left disappointed. The service was exceptional and we thoroughly enjoyed every aspect of dining. The wait was a little long but we expected that for this time of year. We dined around 7:30 which seems to be prime time. The Steam Pot is truly amazing. It has a little bit of everything. My son ordered a broiled seafood platter and loved it. The time to get our food was reasonable. We ordered several broiled and grilled items which always takes longer cooking time than fried food. We will definitely return on our next vacation.

This was a place my wife and I ate at last year, 7/15/08, and were disappointed. As I have seen others say, don't know if people just don't know what good seafood is or not, but ours wasn't that great. I had heard good things about Nance's, so we figured we'd give it a try. We're from FL, so we can get good fresh seafood in our own back yard. Waitress was poor at best, never asked how our food was, hardly ever came by to check on us. Food was high priced and was something I could have got for less at a seafood chain. As soon as we left, we drove around some more and found some better ideas for this year.

By far the best seafood I have ever eaten. I got the fish of the day which was salmon and to the review below, yes, Murrells Inlet is adjacent to the Atlantic Ocean which has a variety of fish, including salmon. It was delicious. We were a party of six and we got a variety of seafood as well as steaks. Everything was fresh and delicious. Their food isn't coated down with cheeses and sauces like other franchises which mask the true flavor of fresh seafood. We are going to be in the Myrtle Beach area for a week and plan on coming back to Nance's at least twice again before we leave. We have been to most of the seafood restaurants in the Murrells Inlet area and by far Nance's tops each of them.

What a disappointment!!! The seafood on our broiled platters was not fresh. I had to resort to using tartar sauce for some flavor ( I never use tartar sauce on seafood!!!). I could not finish the scallops. The cole slaw was pitiful. On a positive note, the hush puppies were tasty and our server was friendly and attentive. I glad we arrived when the buy one get one half price was in effect. We saved $10 on 2 not so good meals. Also, since when is the Catch Of The Day in Murrell's Inlet, SC SALMON?

Awful! This was our 2nd trip here. We waited longer for our food (40 minutes) than we did to be seated. The prices for the portions are very high and the kid's menu is overpriced and limited of any variety. Our waiter was great but was waiting on so many tables that he couldn't devote any time to us. The food that should have been cold was hot as well as the food that should have been hot was cold. The bill for two adults and one child was very disppointing.

Went here with my wife and another couple to celebrate our birthdays. Has been a yearly routine. And very much to our liking. This year our server ,forgot his name, was terrible . He messed up our orders and food was barely warm. We ordered an appetizer of roasted oysters. Finding out at the end of meal we were charged for a 3rd dinner. Each of us had a BUY ONE GET ONE 1/2 PRICE.. When we asked why when we asked specifically for an appetizer were charged for a third dinner. His replied was curt and sarcastic- it is not my problem the computer figures it. We asked to see manager . We were told he was busy. Well, the four of us reluctantly paid the bill. But will never return to Nance's again

My family and I were on vacation and we did some inquiring as to the best seafood and Nance's was recommended by several people. They didn't steer us wrong. From the awesome hushpuppies, the seafood platters and the Steampot, we were very pleased with it all. My wife doesn't care for seafood so she got a New York Strip (watch out Outback), she said it was by far the best steak she had ever eaten. Not too shabby considering they are known for their seafood. Our server, Debra, was a nice touch to the whole dining experience. We highly recommend this place to anyone looking for great food.

After going to one of those lousy "touristy" seafood buffet places, we went here on the advice of our tour guide who said that the places in Murrell's Inlet had the best seafood in the area. In short, he was right. My wife said the peel and eat shrimp was the best she's ever had. We both had fish and deviled crab -- great quality, nothing fancy, just good fresh seafood. The view over the marsh was neat as well -- just about every seat in the place offers a view. Finally, the local draft lager is worth a try if you're a beer person. Not sure if we're going back to Myrtle next year, but we would go here again in a heartbeat -- well worth the drive down even from North Myrtle.

I had read the reviews and since it was highly recommended I told my husband the great reviews it had received on here. I'm not sure if people just don't know what good seafood tastes like I don't agree with the excellent reviews. This was the worst I've ever had. It was greasy and tasteless from the hush puppies to the fried fish, fried shrimp and lobster tail. The atmosphere is fine I wouldn't recommend bringing any children there it is very quiet, luckily our children are very well behaved. It is in a nice location on the water. Our waitress was fine she didn't go out of her way just did her job. I cannot recommend this restaurant to anyone.

I was introduced to Nance's by friends during my teen years and I've been going back every year for the past 30 years. Nance's has the best seafood at the best price of any of the seafood restaurants in Murrell's Inlet and Myrtle Beach area. I would drive four hours just to eat at Nance's. The service is always good and it is always clean, even the restrooms. We usually try to get there for the Early Bird Specials, so we rarely have to wait in line.

Was disappointed with the selection. I am diabetic and was not able to get the restaurant to substitute a reasonable vegetable. All they would offer was corn on the cob or the usual fried stuff. I was able to have a small salad for an additional charge. This is the only restaurant in the Myrtle Beach area where I was not accomodated to my satisfaction this year. I guess they do not believe in steamed vegetables. I must say that my broiled shrimp and small salad were ok. Jim Sutton JRS

We were 15 min. early for the early bird but they seated us anyway even though they weren't actually opened yet. All our meals were excellent and we would recommend this place to everyone. Prices were in line for the food but I was a little taken back by the price of a Vodka martini {$11.00} other then that everything was super.

I enjoyed the smoke free enviroment, the only smoke was from the steamed oysters. there is a smokeing area in the bar which is convinent for smokers. I also enjoyed the fresh seafood that taste like it was just pulled out the water. The staff there was very friendly. I was told 10-15 for seating time and they got me in and seated in just 5. The view was beautiful. You can see for miles out the windows that surround the inlet. I will be sure to return next summer. I highly recomend this place for an enjoyable experience.

Great smoked Oysters in a half shell and good bang for the buck as far as seafood goes. I wish it was smoke-free though. You see, I have Asthma and sometimes I have to leave the restuarant a few time in order to not have an Asthma attack. The food is good and I'm a regular when I visit my grand-parents.

I have tried most of the restaurants on the inlet and by far Nance's has the best food. My family and I were down for a week on vacation and we ate twice at Nance's. Great seafood and large portions. Alot of restaurants coat the seafood down with so much seasonings that you don't actually know what real seafood tastes like. We will see you guys on our next trip to Myrtle Beach.

The wait here was shorter than the rest....and we found out why once we ate there. Service was poor and our waitress rude. Kids soft drinks surprised us that they did not come with kids meal and added a $2.50 charge per kids drink. Atmosphere....ummm none. Once the food came out it was lackluster. The best thing about this place were the hushpuppies they bring to the table while you wait for your food. Other than that...nothing to good.Would not recommend to a friend.

I've eaten at a fair number of restaurants in Murrells Inlet, and Nance's is one of my favorites. The wait time at isn't long. The food is delicious. The staff is very friendly. The atmosphere is unpretentious. Very family oriented. While waiting for our table, we went to the inlet behind the restaurant and skipped rocks. One more thing...the bathrooms are spotless. A very, very good experience.

We took the advice of many that reviewed this place and boy do we feel duped! This place is not much better than a Shoney's. The hushpuppies were yummy, but everything was down hill from there. The fried shrimp was of a nice size but were tasteless. The fries were crinkle-cut high school cafeteria style. My wife had the steak and shrimp and I thought they brought her steak and jerky. The steak was dry and charred. This would be expected if I paid $9.95 for my meal, but how about nearly twice that? Please save your money or choose someplace else. I could not beleive there were people waiting to be seated... They must be first timers!

Very yummy meal! The food was plentiful and fresh. Loved the view overlooking the marshland and inlet. The only problem was that the kids chicken tender meal we thought we ordered turned out to be the adult chicken tender meal (I guess the server figured since the kids were splitting it?), and so our early-bird discount was off that meal instead of a regular meal. A bit disappointed that they didn't fix that error, but at least we had lots of extra food to take home!

I have to say I have been coming to Nance's since 1993...I have never EVER been disappointed. I am from NC but have access to a place in Garden City anytime. I always go to Nance' because I know the food is going to be great, at a great price and a wonderful view of the inlet! I don't eat seafood ANYWHERE ELSE on the whole beach.....that includes Myrtle...

We ate at Nance's twice during our most recent vacation. The food was excellent each time. We tried the fried platter on our first trip. The flounder was a good size fresh and lightly fried filet with a good flounder taste that is hard to find. The breading used is very light and doesen't influence the taste too much. The scallops, and shrimp were also very good. The oysters were not the best I've had but were better than average. Overall the platter would rank # 2 or 3 on my list of fried seafood. On our second trip we took friends. Our order included fried platters, grilled grouper, and crab cakes. The fried platters were as good as the first visit. The grilled grouper was a little better than average and the crab cakes were excellent. We plan to return and recomend Nance's to all our friends. Hopefully the quality will remain consistent through future visits.

April 28, 2008. For 17 years at the beach I have always made the extra drive to Nances, primarily for the oyster stew. I average 10 times / year with parties of 4 to 16. But, alas, they have taken the oyster stew off the menu, and when asked, manager Adam refused to make it for our party. I'm sure Nances will do fine without our business. The rest of their menu is top notch. But without the oyster stew, its not worth the drive from North Myrtle.
