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..

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.

We love Drunken Jacks. My husband and I go there 1st thing when we get to the beach. We always order the same thing. That's why we came in the 1st place. I just don't understand anyone going to the beach and not getting seafood of some kind. Ours is shrimp, fried fantails. But we always start with those great hush puppies and honey butter. OMG so good. You have to try them. We sit and watch this guy paddle by standing on his surfboard at lunch time. We've seen him EVERYTIME we've been at lunch time. Don't know where he comes from or where he goes, but is kind of a thing with us now to look for him. It's just one of the things that makes Drunken Jacks a great place.

We are locals just a few blocks away and have frequented many of the restaurants. We find that this is one of the best. All of the food has been terrific,large portions. The staff is very friendly and vigilant. Atmosphere is great. You can't ask for more really. I highly recommend for mid price range restaurant.

Was recommended by a friend...went in for lunch and was seated immediately! Got to seat by a window and watch Bubba's goats. Michelle, our server was wonderful...super funny and gave us some 'local' info. Recommended Bubba's Love Shack next door and told us the story of Bubba and his goats. Too bad it started raining and we didn't get to go out and see Bubba's statue. Order the hush puppies with the honey butter for sure and think about sharing a plate with a friend. Too much food for one person!

We just vacationed on North Myrtle beach last week. We found Murrells Inlet and loved it right away. It was a long drive from North Myrtle Beach but we really liked the atmosphere of the area. Loved the Beaches down the road at Huntington State Park also. The kids liked fishing off the deck and walking around the Marina looking at the boats and marsh views. After looking over all the area menus we choose Drunken Jack's for dinner on our 1st Sunday night. We did have to wait around 2 hrs. but there is plenty to do & see during the wait, lots of live music ( pretty good music). We were seated with a lovely waterfront view. The salad was very fresh, the serving sizes are HUGE! In fact we all had so much leftovers we took them back to our condo and made another meal out of them the next night. My husband is a huge seafood fan and he said it was the best he has had in years. We have 4 children and they loved the pirate hats and having their picture taken with the pirate statues. We planned on finding another seafood restaurant for another night but after much searching we decided to return to Drunken Jack’s since we loved it so much the 1st time. On the 2nd visit we waited 2 hrs again. This time enjoying popcorn, drinks, a bloomin onion and good music on the deck. The food was just as good the second time around! This visit I ordered steak and it was one of the best steaks I have ever had! Seafood was wonderful again. We went home with enough for a 2nd meal again. The prices are a little high but it was a pretty good value since the portion sizes are enough to make a full 2nd meal. And we were on vacation!! Great waitress on the deck and inside. Loved it and will be back if we visit Myrtle Beach again!! Very nice place to visit. I would definitely recommend Drunken Jack’s to anyone visiting the area!!!!

I had visited this restaurant a few years ago and wanted to share it with my sisters on this visit to the beach since I thought it was the best. It was very disappointing to say the least! I had the shrimp which was ok, my fries were white(undercooked). None of us three liked the cole slaw. My sister ordered Mahi Mahi which was good, however, her sweet potato fries were just warm. All in all we were very disapponited. I believe the food was just medicore and had declined immensley since I last visited. We were there on 6-19-11. It was my sisters birthday!

We were there in the afternoon on a saturday, there was no wait for a seat, the place was clean & the staff friendly. It was not busy at all. However, the wait for a drink order was long, the wait for the food order even longer & then when the food came, I didn't even get my complete order. The waitress was very nice about it, got it as soon as possible. I really don't see what all the hype is about this place...esp. the hushpuppies. They tasted like deepfried balls of cotton, there was NO flavor at all! I do have to say the honey butter is the only thing I would go back there for. We were there for 2 hours and only got 1 appetizer & 1 drink each...and there was only 2 of us!

I love this place! We have went to Drunken Jacks every time we're in Myrtle Beach area. I found out about this place from locals. If you want to know great places to go, just ask local bartenders, hotel staff, life guards. They all know best places. We always get filled up on the hushpuppies and honey butter and have to take most of our meal with us, but my whole family loves it!

I remember going to drunken jacks with some family friends when I was younger and I loved it! I got a tattoo, ate some popcorn, saw the boats, and watched the goats during out reasonable 1 hour wait. We were soon seated and since I didn't like seafood when I was younger, I ordered a cheeseburger and fries. It was delicious! Better than a lot of burger restaurants. And the hushpuppies were fabulous! Our waitress was very friendly and didn't leave us waiting for long. I talked my mom into going again on our vacation this year after hearing a couple of bad reviews and we were not disappointed! Again, just an hours wait, which isn't bad considering how popular dj's is! No tattoos, but we did enjoy popcorn and goats. We had a very nice waiter, although I can't remember his name, and my flounder, green beans and baked potato were delicious! They have good, flakey flounder at dj's, not the thick, lumpy stuff you get at a lot of seafood restaurants. And I don't care how many of you say their green beans are horrid, they tasted perfectly fine to me! They could have been out of a can, but you really can't expect every restaurant in murrels inlet to make every item on their menu from scratch! Altogether, our meals both times were amazing and we will certainly be returning to drunken jacks on our vacation this summer.

We have eaten at several of the popular "bar-type" restaurants at Murrells Inlet and really like Drunken Jacks. If the weather permits, we always sit on their outside patio. I do not eat fried foods normally , but hey --- I love an oyster Po Boy and it must be fried. Their fried seafood at Drunken Jacks is not heavy and it is not over cooked. I would highly recommend it.

Wow! That was different... Haven't been to Myrtle Beach in 4 years. So much has changed. The last summer (2006) the family met for a reunion we went to Murrells Inlet and had dinner with about 15-18 people including 6 kids under 8... We went to Drunken Jack's as recommended from parents around the kiddie pool. The food was great then and so was the outside view and fun. I being the single uncle got to take the kids and look at the marsh, but even better were the temp tattoos. Got them all inked up and took them back to see their parents, but now was the greatest uncle. Fast forward, last summer... Wait time is still there, prices were higher, but the big topper on the night was gone. As dumb as it sounds those kids remembered the tattoos and wanted to go back 4 years later, only to see a flea market atmosphere. Simple entertainment brought us back, but repeat experience left us wanting more. Word to the wise, the kids need something fun besides coloring and hats if you have a 2 hour wait. I'm just saying that little difference had a huge impact.

This and Carolina Roadhouse are my favorite places to eat at Myrtle. Great, great atmosphere. All the seafood is awesome. Been here alot and never a bad experience. Usually is a long wait but they have a lounge/bar area to wiat in thats cool and you get drinks, popcorn, etc. Steak neptune is exceptional and a good salad bar.

I am a local and everytime I go to drunken jacks i feel like I am on a vacation! I go for every special occassion and lately have been going more often. I know the main complaint is the wait to get in and I have been lucky everytime. It is one of the few places that I can honestly say, I have never had a bad meal!! If you are a scallop fan, on the starters you can get bacon wrapped scallops that are the the best you will ever have, I now get that as an entre although it is not on that menue they do it for me anyway. The servers are all great! Best food on the beach, try it.

We're down for the warmer weather and this restaurant was recommended to us from relatives who had been here a few years ago. I must say southern hospitality is alive and well at this restaurant. We were seated right away. The hostess was a real southern lady, sassy and sweet. The hush puppies are addictive. the salad bar fresh and varied. the appetizers, scallops wrapped in bacon, were delish and large and tender. My husband and I both had the combo platter. He had flounder,scallops, and shrimp. I had deviuled crab, shrimp and scallops. It was plentiful and delicious. Desser was also excellant. I would definitely recommend this rrestaurant as a must dine.

While on a business trip, I decided it was time to try out Drunken Jack's. Being by myself, there wasn't any wait and I was seated immediately. The hush puppies were plentiful and tasty. The Flounder was over-cooked, shrimp was ok and scallops were good; all broiled up and served for $28.95. The green beans were horrid and if anyone says that they liked them, then you know that their review is a fake and that they were paid for their review. Seriously, my kids can make better green beans from a can! Stop laughing, it's the truth! Two beers = $6.00. Salad bar is only average and similar ones can be found anywhere. Service was average. Total bill with a 15% tip = $36.25. I ate at Angelo's last night. Not located on the inlet, nor seafood, but definitely a better meal for the biz traveler. Better salad, better service, better food (aged rib eye, baked potato, EXCELLENT fresh green beans) and all for less money! If you have ever eaten seafood down by the sea then you have eaten here before. My advice is if your by yourself and really don't care then give it a go, otherwise pass, take your family elsewhere and save yourself some doe!

My wife and I went to DJs at recommendation from our hotel desk clerk. We were surprised to see that it was pretty busy on a Tuesday night in the middle of October. We were sat in about 25 minutes after waiting in the outdoor part of the lounge. The view was great but the only downside was enduring the bad singer/ guitarist who had computerized backing music. As far as the food goes, the hush puppies w/ honey butter were heavenly and the she crab soup was awesome! The scallops, deviled crab and oysters I had for dinner were good, although I wasn't blown away by it. Our server was friendly, but she seemed overworked. I'd probably go again....

Another great trip to Drunken Jacks! I could eat my weight in their hushpuppies! This is must visit for us every time we're in Myrtle Beach! The wait is usually at least an hour but you can pass the time by sitting out on the deck and having a nice cold beverage and watching the goats on goat island!

Had always heard about DJ's. We stopped while on vacation and were told 1 1/2 to 1hr 45 min wait. We agreed to wait this amount of time. After 1 hr 45 min. we asked how much longer. Were told the party at the table they were preparing for 7 of us was paying. After another 25 minutes, we asked again. Hostess acted as though we were bothering her by asking again. Finally, after 2 hrs 20 mins. we were seated. Prices on menu didn't match the prices out front near the front door. We asked why. Told the menu prices included tax.!?!?!? Food was only average and definitely not worth 2hr+ wait. Some salad plates were dirty, not to mention a salad at this place is $9.00. Yes it's all you can eat but I'm full after one trip - who can eat $9.00 worth of salad? Very disappointed.

We are locals and decided to take family members who were visiting to Drunken Jacks for dinner. After our 2 hour wait, we were seated. Our server was very pleasant and nice. I was expecting a great seafood restaurant and I can't even explain how bad our experience was. The seafood was tough, tasteless, and just plain awful! I was embarassed to have taken family members there, waited an hour to eat the worst food we have ever eaten, and actually paid the overpriced prices for it. Will not go back.

Eleven of us, including 3 children ages 9 mos, 4 and 7 years, ate at Drunken Jacks. The experience was fabulous from the moment we walked in. Live music in the lounge was enjoyable. Seatinig 11 is no easy task but was handled well. When we got seated the children were presented with pirates hats and "gold" coins as well as coloring books and crayons. There was a children's menu along with the regular menu. I had salmon which was delicious accompanied by a salad, clam chowder, and green beans. Portions were very generous. In fact we took home doggie bags. We were hesitant to go there because of the name and the fact that we had children with us, but it turned out to be very pleasant and totally appropriate.

First of all, ignore all the bad reviews. You just can't please some people. Most of these morons are looking for a high quality meal for low quality prices. Just ignore them. You have to understand the concept of Drunken Jack's. It's meant for quality food and a fabulous view while dining. It seats about 120 people regardless of what you might be thinking while standing outside looking at it. Expect a long wait... period. We waited nearly two hours, most of which was spent in the bar area outside sipping cocktails and beer and munching on popcorn in 95 degree heat. I didn't notice the heat to be honest. After I finished my top shelf margarita, I was in heaven. We were eventually seated in less time than expected. Our server was very friendly and seemed experienced enough. I ordered the Grouper Royale which consisted of grouper, blackened, topped with crab meat and bernaise sauce. Very rich. Very good. Worth every penny of the $32.95. With alcohol and tip, our bill for four people was just over $150. It's not free, folks. If you don't want to spend money on vacation, avoid Murrel's Inlet. It's a fabulous experience!!!

I wanted to try Drunken Jack's soo bad, but not bad enough to wait 3 hours! When my party of 9 put our name on the list they told us it would be 1 hour & 30 minutes. After waiting for 2 hours we asked how much longer...the host said 45 more minutes. Needless to say that asking 5 kids to wait for 3 hours for food and it was past 9:00 at night was asking too much!!!!!! Never again !!!!!!!!!!!!!!1

Been coming to Mrytle Beach almost every summer since i was a kid. The thing i've always loved about myrtle vacations was all the great places to eat. Of all the great places Drunken Jack's is definitly in my top 3. Great atmosphere, and view of the water. Usually have live bands and great food. My family and I usually stay up in myrtle or north myrtle but still make the trek down to murells inlet to drunken jacks at least once per trip. Love the husspuppies!

We were passing through during a trip to Charleston and decided that D.J.s looked like a nice break. Wow. The meal started with dirty salad plates. The appetizer was rotten oysters that smelled and tasted as though they were decomposing! Next came barely edible sysco seafood, and when I returned my meal the manager thought a fair reduction in price was to strike the inedible oysters from the bill. With the average meal costing from 18-28 dollars, we expected something tasty. Go lick a compost pile and then eat at Long John Silver’s, save your hundred dollars and call it even. The name is all wrong; it should be called "Drunken Thieves".

The food is good, but not worth the wait. Last 2 times we have tried to dine there , we arrived by 5 PM and was told there was an hour wait. I don't understand that since there were parking spaces open in front of the restaurant. The people working at the hostess station have a bad attitude and couldn't care if you get in or not. We end up going down the street to Lee's Inlet Kitchen.

This was our first and last visit to drunken jack's, My wife had the seafood platter and I had the oyster platter. Besides being way overpriced, the food was tasteless and substandard. Green beans out of a can?? come on!. I can't imagine anyone thinking this this is good food unless they've never eaten at a decent restaurant. At the prices they charge, we expected some freshly prepared good tasting food. What we got was a big disspointment. Don't waste your money on this overpriced slop.

We used this website as our guide to dining today, I asked around at breakfast and the visitors center and the consensus was Murrells Inlet, your site did the rest. We waited 30 min, close to what we were told, 3 of us were seated, I ordered broiled scallops and rice pilaf, my girlfriend had the flounder and a potato, my son a burger. My food was completely tasteless, the rice I am sure was boxed rice a roni, the fllounder was also below average, my sons burger was good. Total bill $68. Drove 30 miles disapointed, do not waste your money or time. The fish camps back around Charlotte are much better at a 1/3 the price. Does anybody care anymore?

Went this past weekend, and waited an hour and half for dinner. You cannot order just a side salad but have to order the salad bar which is $8.95, kind of expensive if all you want is a salad as a side item. My wife ordered an appetizer, a shrimp cocktail and then ended up ordering a baked potato instead of the non-existent side salad. For a restaurant of this size and the amount of time it has been open there has to be a better way than that, when it comes to salads. This has been a very popular restaurant, but if they do not take into consideration, the economy for people, they are going to have problems. The wait and then the salad fiasco, have easy remedies, if the staff would only listen.

Was our first time visiting. We arrived at 5p on a Monday evening and only waited 30 minutes. Food was awesome and everything we had fantastic. We are from Maryland so seafood is a diet staple. The fish and scallops were so fresh and some of the best I have had. The waiter was also awesome, very knowledgable about the menu and their food. His recommendations were right on! Service was great and everyone was friendly and helpful. Hushpuppies were killer! Cost was honestly in line with all resaurants in Myrtle Beach and when you are on vacation. We didn't find it too expensive, especially for the quality of the food! Highly recommend folks pay a visit.

We always make a trip to DJs when we go to the beach. The food is excellent and they don't overcook my broiled scallops and flounder. It's hard to make healthly seafood (no oil or butter) taste great but they always do! The wait is terrible - if they tell you 2 hours, then you'd better count on it. The hushpuppies and honey butter are sooo good and we have never had bad service. I don't think the salad bar is as good as it used to be, but it is still better than the usual saucer of bland lettuce and tomato you get at most restaurants. One gripe - they used to have a fantastic potato wrapped shrimp appetizer and have substituted a subpar crushed wonton shrimp.

We have been coming to MB for over 20 yrs. and Drunken Jacks was always our favorite. This year we went @ 5:30pm and were told there was a 2 hr wait. We decided to stay, and listen to the live music as our teenage Grandaughters could walk around and look at the boats and etc. We had drinks and popcorn down in the bottom level. At about 1 1/2 hrs. our 17 year old grandaughter, went to the desk to inquire where we were on the list. She was told that it would be about 10 more minutes, and then was questioned about her beeper as the number didn't match up with our name. She said they corrected this and we continued to wait. My husband went back at 2 hrs. and said, "what is the hold up, people are being seated that arrived after we did, and they are not a party of 2 or a large one. We were again told it would be 5-10 minutes. Finally the manager appeared and I informed her of the problem and a table magically came available while I was talking to her. We waited 2 hrs. and 45 minutes. Then we found that the food has definitely taken a downward turn. We will mark Drunken Jacks off our list now after 20 yrs. There is no reason that they cannot be better organized and have better service than this. There are plenty of good restaurants in Myrtle Beach and Murrells Inlet that we will be frequenting and I advise you to do likewise.

This was our second trip to DJ's.Last time I had soft-shell crabs - a rare treat for me - but these were blah. This time I had sauteed shrimp (scampi), and although the shrimp were high-quality, I've had better. Salad bar is ho-hum. Hushpuppies are good. The wait was long, as expected, but pleasant because we had a seat. Server Grant was excellent. For the prices they charge and the time we waited, I expect [a] superior food and [b] toilet paper in the stalls. We'll try someplace else next time.

Have been going there twice a year while on vacation for the past 15 or so years. The food this year was fair at best. A real disappointment. An almost 2 hour wait on a Tuesday, have never waited that long before. Food was dry and somehow, cold. At least the hush puppies were as great as usual, but I don't want to spend $$$ for two for hush puppies. Will be going elsewhere on our next vacation in Sept. Sorry to see such a great place go downhill so fast.

Our family has been enoying "DJ"'s for about 25 years. My husband and I try our best to celebrate our anniversary each year at Drunken Jacks. This is a 4 hour drive for us, so you can tell we love it there It is by far the best seafood and prime rib we have ever had. The hush puppies are unique and are far better than anywhere else we have ever been. For those haters who complain about the wait....so what!!! "IT IS THE BEST FOOD YOU WILL EVER EAT" We have and will gladly wait 3 hours anytime, we just expect to wait and leave early. It is very well worth it. The entertainment is great , the bar serves excellent drinks, and everyone is aways friendly. The only disappointment was one year we drove down in January and they were closed for the week. We were heartbroken.

While visiting the area we decided to go to Drunken Jacks for seafood. It was our first visit and we thought with the full parking lot it must be really good. I guess the cars were employees or the people were elsewhere because it wasn't that busy but there was still quite a long wait (little over an hour). Food was ok but not great especially for the price.

Drunken Jacks needs to spend a little less money on advertising and a little more money on quality food. This place is a tourist trap. With emphasis on the word, TRAP. You spend over $20.00 for an entree that you can get for $9.00 anywhere else. And the food isn't good enough to charge that much. They need new management and new cooks who care about quality food preparation. What ever you do, stay away from Drunken Jacks.

The staff was always there for a refill or to get another drink. The food upstairs was to die for. The seared tuna was awesome and the she crab soup was the best i had ever tasted. All meals to our table were timely and very good. We highly recommend this place

I have been to thousands of restaurants worldwide. I reside in murrells inlet and try to patronize local establishments. Last saturday night we had friends visit from wahington, dc. We had fabulous service. However, the food was probably one of the worst meals I ever had. The grouper and crab was so overcooked, I hardly touched it. The sauce that accompanied it was packaged. The green beans were limp and tasteless. The she-crab soup also tasted like it was reconstituted, it had lumps of flour ?? uncooked still in it. Even the salad bar was marginal. And the price tag of $31.95 for the entree was ridiculous. My friends food was no better..

The absolute worse seafood I have ever eaten. There isn't a entree less than $20.00 on the menu. For that price I would expect something decent. My wife's shrimp was rubbery and devoid of any kind of taste. My crabcakes had zero flavor and I had to drown it in tarter sauce to get some kind of taste out of them. I was recently reading an article in Golf Digest about restaurants to go to after your round. To my surprise they suggested Drunken Jacks! I just feel sorry for all those out-of-town golfers who went there only to be disappointed. Hopefully they won't hold Drunken Jacks against Myrtle Beach.

If you want high prices, average food, a rude staff, and a long wait this is the place for you. The server that we had was rude. She was grabbing plates off the table even before we were finished. Trying to get us out so another $100+ could be made I guess. The meals are probably $7 or $8 more than similar offerings in the area. If you want to know how high the prices are they actually have a kids menu item for $15. It is Prime Rib, but I've ate a $13.99 all you can eat Prime Rib at Steak and Ale off the adult menu. Come on, how can a child's portion of Prime Rib be worth $15.00. That should tell you how expensive the adult menu is going to be. I wouldn't recommend waiting 20 minutes to eat here, much less the 2 hour waits that are common here. The food is not terrible, but not really worth the extra that you have to pay here. The hushpuppies are good. Expect your bill to be high dollar. Much better choices for less in the area.

We are locals and have been going here for 25+ years. Very good food and excellent atmosphere. We never go in the summer when the ‘summer folk’ are here therefore we don’t have a wait. Although waiting in the lounge can be very pleasant when they have entertainment. You can also wander on the Marshwalk while you are waiting.

Well worth the drive and time, If you have to wait then wait this is the BEST SEAFOOD down here in myrtle beach its on the "Marsh Walk" in Murrells inlet you can sit by the window and watch the water. My friends from VA took me here when they came down and told me they loved it they go here every time they come down. ever sence then i take my husband and he thinks it is the best too. the food is perfect you might have to wait so get there a little early but it is well worth the wait we waited a hour one time just to get in , just come a little early and you will be fine. The food is to die for its lovely and they give you the best hushpuppys with the honey butter they also have a salad bar the prices are av. for a seafood resturant we pay around 40 for the both of us when we go it is well worth it i recomend it to everyone i know

Very simple!!!! Overcooked, overpriced and portions were undersized. My wife and I had the Angler combination platter which was $22.99 each. The Shrimp and oysters were like rubber and the flounder was dry. These people just don't have a clue what real seafood is all about, the whole meal was a joke. My advice is to drive to Charleston and go to Hymans seafood on meeting street. The best seafood around, bar none. I know, I have eaten there most of my life.

I sat at the smokey stinky bar because I was by myself. Bartender was rude, inattentive and seemed bored. After getting a lukewarm beer, I was informed that I can't order food at the bar. That doesn't make much sense. I was told they have good hush puppies, but I will never know. I won't be back.

I have been going to Drunken Jacks's for 15 years or longer, but I won't go back. Each year I go the prices go up and the quanity and quality of the food goes down, it is way to expensive. I don't know if it is under new management or what but it is terrible now, I use to look forward to going their with my kids every year, but not any more, our waitress was terrible we had to find her everytime we needed something she acted like she hated to be there, and they are not very friendly I felt like I was bothering the staff to ask for anything..I will not recommend this restaurant.

Was at druken jacks in august. The food was awful. I had the creek shrimp which had no taste & it was like chewing rubber. I only ate a couple of bites. My boyfriend who is a big eater had the seafood platter . He only ate about 1/3 of the food. He to said it had no flavor. Besides the poor food the prices were outragous for what we got. Would not have minded the prices if the food had a been a lot better.

The Bad news: Atmosphere and food are mediocre. The crabcakes need work. The seared tuna was simple. The good news: The view is spectacular. Our 1 hour wait on the deck having a drink was the highlight.

8/5/08 - Our experience was not very good. When we arrived on a Monday night we were told a 2hr wait. We went outside on the patio and it was crowded with people and loud music. We went to the inside bar to get a drink while we waited and the bartender never bother to acknowledge us. My husband stood at the bar for 20 minutes. There was never a "Hey I'll be right with you" etc - They were not busy at all in the downstairs bar area. We left and went next door to Divines - we were seated immediately, food was excellent a much nicer experience then Drunken Jacks. We liked Divines so much that we went back the next night & had another very nice dinner & experience.

This is one of my favorites on the marshwalk. The atmosphere is nice, it isn't too noisy and the views are great. The only time i've had to wait was in July. This place has become well known and tourists will drive from north Myrtle Beach for dinner, so, in July, go early or after 8:30pm. The quality of the food is way up there but it won't break the bank. The bar is especially nice and the service is great.

What a RACKET!!....They tell you the wait time is 2.5 hours and then stick to it NO MATTER HOW MANY people leave in front of you so you will keep drinking alcohol.....I went back and checked our wait time after 1.75 hours and they told me another 50 minutes even though at least 15-20 names had been crossed off in front of and after our name that the hostess told me had decided to leave and not wait it out....we ate munchies on the deck while waiting that were good but the "live entertainment - Steve" was drunk and couldn't sing a lick....not something I would recommend

We visit Drunken Jack's every time we are in Myrtle Beach. This is one of our favorite restaurants and we tell everyone about it! The downstairs bar is fabulous with the live music and the food is out of this world! Never had anything that I did not enjoy! The crab cakes are absolutely wonderful! Would recommend this place to anyone!

Great view...great ambience, especially the back deck but does not live up to the hype especially for the money. We paid $120 for a family of five plus during our TWO HOUR wait for a table, we dropped another $30 bucks on appetizers. The food was good but not great. Save your money and go somewhere else.

Not a good experience. There is no reason to have a wait exceeding 2 hours when they are definately set up to turn tables. The service was poor and the attention to changes was non-existant. We orderded soup and not only did they not bring it, they charged us after we ask for the charge to be removed. IT IS OBVIOUS THEY ARE NOT ABOUT REPEAT BUSINESS. GO AT YOUR OWN RISK!

We went to Jack's for lunch the walk along the pier was very nice, we were seated inside at a table with a view of the marsh also a very nice view. The food was just as described fresh, tasted great and we were served promptly and with a a very good waiter. Overall the place was way above average and I would recommend highly.

We went to Drunken Jacks for the first time (6-08) and it will be the last. I think our bill was about $60 and the food was bland and lacked flavor. The atmosphere and view is good. My wife and I and my two kids ate and none of the four of us enjoyed our meal.

My family has gone to Drunken Jacks for about 18 years now and plan to do so this summer. We all pick this restaurant to go back to each year. Great atmosphere, great food, and we always have great service! Even if you have to wait, the bar downstairs has entertainment and is a fun place to hang out. Besides the bar, you can walk outside and enjoy the view and watch the goats.

Drunken Jacks is among the finest restaurants we've visited in Murrells Inlet, Myrtle Beach, and Litchfield Beach combined! It's probably my favorite. We were seated on a busy night in less than 20 minutes. The sweet tea is amazing! The food was definitely worth the money (we were served the steak, shrimp, and scallop trio). Our waiter was super friendly, and the staff all greeted us with a friendly smile. This restaurant is definitely worth visiting!

We were looking for a laid-back place with good food and outdoor seating. Drunken Jacks fits the bill. The staff was very friendly and the environment very laid-back. I had the shrimp and grits which was very tasty. It is along the boardwalk which you can stroll down and check out the other places along the way.

My wife, daughter and parents went there for dinner and this was by far the most disappointing experience I have had in the Myrtle Beach area since I was a child. The service was fine. Although it took 7 minutes to get a straw. If you have a 2 year old that will only drink with a straw, I would suggest taking your own. The food was terrible. You can easily tell it was cooked frozen. The flounder was mushy and cold. The shrimp tastes like it was farm raised. The deviled crab did not even come in a shell... it was in tin foil. All the food we got was very bland. They are very proud of the food they serve, as noted by the price. Don't go with your hopes high. This was a disaster of a seafood experience

Drunken Jacks has been our family favorite for over 15 years. It is a "must do" every year. Food is excellent; servers excellent. We usually dine when the door first opens so there is no waiting. The view is gorgeous; hush puppies with honey butter are absolutely delicious; salad bar is very good; we will return.

Perhaps it was because it was a busy evening we were shuttled like cattle to our upstairs tiny booth. My husband enjoyed the small salad bar and though we both tried to enjoy our dinners, we felt that we were prompted by the wait staff to speed up consumption of our dinners and get out of the way for those waiting. Personally, I am a slow eater, but not that slow, and we did order the top priced items on the menu. not that it should have matter a whit.. Obviously I missed the atmosphere others have praised, where was it? 'Cause we surely missed it.. A tourist trap sums up our feelings about our dinner and Drunken Jacks history did nothing to improve the dinner or the view of other diners in strict little army like booths.. A great story, an engaging story but abused for Tourist purposes. Never again. Pretentious without the class necessary to back it up.
