After returning from a trip last week, June 7 thru June 14, to North Myrtle Beach, Pawley's Island, Murrells Inlet, I was extremely saddened to hear of all of Oliver's Lodge being closed down. I immediately jumped online when I returned home to find several very picky and an inaccurate, in my opinion, negative reviews about the restaurant. When I was a kid, my family visited the area twice a year, every year. Each time we always made a special trip to Olivers Lodge for a meal or two. The trip was not complete without a visit to ole' Oliver's Lodge. I absolutely loved the hush puppies, loved sitting on the porch and watching the Spanish moss swat from the live oak trees in the ocean breeze, right off of the water. What a view...What ambience!! When we children would be waiting to be seated or waiting on our food we would all go sit on the beach wall and watch the fiddler crabs on the shore burrowing into their little holes in the sand. It was a dream. What a shame that this restaurant has since closed. This last trip felt hollow without a visit there. I hope that the locals will come together and help this restaurant reopen. It is a historic gem that deserves to be restored and appreciated for what it truly was, the essence and the spirit of the Lowcountry and that area...A definite tourist attraction. Thank You

Last time we were going to Murrell's Inlet I did some reseach on restaurants there. I found that the Board of Health had found numerous complaints on Olivers for years and that the entire restaurant was a health hazard. They were closed, thank goodness. Every year the food and service standards had gone down. Too bad. It was a great restaurant years ago.

This restaurant was closed in 2010. They had a terrible review from the health department; and the health department posted a "no admittance" sign on the door until the problems were cleared up. It still is not open. What a shame. This was a great place to eat in years ago.

I remember going to the Lodge back in te 60's and 70's and the food was excellent. I have noticed that most of the reviews have been written in recent times as expected. I guess based on these reviews.....it is a shame most of these people never ate here when it was actually owned by the Oliver Family.....the food was to die for. Maxine Oliver and her family had the best seafood in the area. Shame the new owners have let this place go to hell. I guess money will win out every time!

Based on the reviews, we decided to try Olivers Lodge. However, we found it boarded up. From all appearances, it has been closed for quite some time.

Service is TERRIBLE! Made reservations for an outside table, but were then told we couldn't have one. We then asked if we could sit on the inside porch, as there was a table open. We were told no because "someone else might have a reservation for that table." NO ONE ever sat at that table, and up to 4 others were available at one time during our dinner. Food was good, but we will NEVER go back. They act as if they're doing you a favor by letting you eat there. The food was good, but we will NEVER EVER go back!!!

I had the best shrimp and grits here. Almost worth the drive from Newnan, GA. The family who owns Olivers was very welcoming and made us feel like home. Definitely worth a try!! We met a couple there who had eaten at Olivers 50 years ago on their honeymoon and are still going back.

I have eaten at Oliver's the past two summers. Once at the $9.99 early special, I really enjoyed the shrimp. Our shrimp spread was wonderful and so was the strawberry butter & hush puppies. My 18 year old loved it also. WELL WORTH IT YALL! I went again on 4th of July 09 during peak time. Wait was a little while, but food was again wonderful!! Service was what should be expected at a Holiday. Price at dinner is what other restraunts charge. I love the atmosphere. The evening was one of my most favorite. This is not a plantation home, yall! It is fine fish camp! I will definitely go each year!

We usually go to Oliver's every time we visit Myrtle Beach. This year was no different except now the kids are gone and it was just me and my husband. The food was good (Captains Platter and FlounderRoosevelt). The Raspberry salad dressing was very good. Service was excellent, but even if the food was bad the view of Garden City over the Marsh was worth it. It was absolutely beautiful at sunset.

I was looking forward to my yearly visit to Oliver's. I have always enjoyed dining there over the years while on vacation. However, this year I was greeted by one of the rudest hostesses I have ever encountered. I couldn't believe how our party was treated by this lady. Even if they would have had a table for us, I would not have dined at Oliver's after the way she talked to us. Too bad such a nice restaurant has someone so unfriendly greeting its customers.
