Sara J's has a new chef and the food is excellent! Had the fried shrimp, it was local, lightly breaded and cooked perfectly!

If I was granted my last meal, it certainly wouldn't come from Sara J's! The grilled grouper was not seasoned properly, chewy, and tasteless! Vegetables tasted frozen and were mushy. The waitress took offense to our remarks about our meals. The manager did come to our table and reduced our checks by half...but left hungry and disappointed!

My husband and myself with a close friend tried Sara J's for the first time this past Friday night. It is a very cute looking restaurant with an excellent view of the marsh. We were excited. We did not have to wait very long for a table at all. We tried calamari and oysters. Both good but not great. Noise level is very loud, not fun to try and visit with your table partners. We had shrimp and grits, mahimahi, and just some fresh boiled shrimp. The shrimp was already peeled and very small. It had a very distinct iodine taste. The shrimp in the shrimp and grits my husband said was the same. Not fresh. We had asked the server what was fresh. He seemed a little confused and said do we mean today fresh. He named a fish but then said everything is fresh eventhough it wasn't caught today. Myrtle Beach is really known for its shrimp and its caught every day. Very disappointed in service and freshness. With so many restaurants to choose from we will not be back.

Love love LOVE Sara J's!!! I've been coming here for about 13 years now and I can't have a trip without it! One thing people complain about a lot is the wait... It can be a bit long but there are plenty of things to do until your name is called. You can get a drink at the bar, take a walk on the marsh outside, visit the gift shop, or play games out front. There is always plenty of seating in the waiting area, and trust me it's worth it! My favorite thing about Sara J's is their drinks. Both the PiƱa Colada & the Kahlua Frost are good, but the Midori Colada is to die for!!! The food is always so good, and we love sitting on the porch that overlooks the marsh. Definately try Sara J's next time you're in the Myrtle Beach area, & we'll see ya in June!

My husband and I have eaten here many times and recommend it to all our friends. Never had a bad meal. We usually order a house salad because we are not slaw lovers-- there is an additional charge for this. The seafood is always fresh, well prepared, and served by attentive servers. We come to Myrtle Beach several months a year and Sara J's is always at the top of our list to revisit.

We went to Sara J's this evening 9/20/12. The restaurant was extremely busy, but, even with that , wait time was less than 30 minutes. We were greeted with a smiling face from our server Krissie, what a nice greeting. 7 people in our party and she was extremely experienced, knew what she was doing, did it fast and always with a smile !! Very rare to see these days. Food was very good and the wait was not long at all ! First visit for us and will be sure to come back next time to Sara J's!

I can't imagine anyone not falling in love with Sara J's! Also this is one of the most beautiful restaurants Ive ever seen. The bad reviews have got to be people trying to make this place look bad! I've had most everything on the menu and nobody can even get close to the great food and service this place has! You have got to try the fried fish, deviled crab and shrimp! Even broiled the food is out of this world! I've taken people with me over 20 times and nobody has ever had a complaint. ive been told several times that the wait will be 45 minutes (which would be well worth the wait) but the l've never waited longer than about 15 minutes. try this place and you will not be disappointed! This place is very busy which makes it noisy at times so if I had to find anything wrong with Sara J's its that there are too many people wanting to eat there, the fact that they are a lot of local residents speaks volumes about its quality of food and service!

I read some of these reviews and was a little nervous when my family said they wanted to come here. However, the experience was awesome! We wanted to sit inside so we had to wait about 15 minutes to be seated but we spent them in the bar and the wait seemed like nothing. We were served right away and our server (Chrissy) was very friendly. I had the rib eye steak (very good), two members of my party had the mahi mahi (very good), another member had the special of the night which was a 7 oz steak and shrimp (excellent), and my mom had the chicken parm (pretty good). I would definitely recommend this to anyone visiting Myrtle Beach.

After I read a few reviews I was nervous about how dinner would go tonight. It's Friday so the wait to sit inside was 30 mins; we opted to sit outside and were sat immediately. I would sit outside again if we go back...nice breeze and pretty views. The food was very tasty and our server was friendly. I definitely recommend this place!

Girls week at the beach and Sara J's was recommended by an acquaintance. It took over one hour to be seated for 6 and the noise level was unbearable. Approximately 10 kids ranging from 10-13 years of age were seated 2 tables from us as we sat outside and their parents were seated inside with no supervision. The kids were loud, obnoxious and turned over several chairs. We complained to the waitress but she said they were just kids. The food was gross. I ordered the sirloin steak/shrimp and it was touch and overdone and no thicker than a mcdonalds hamburger. The shrimp was frozen and probably bought from walmart. I did send it back. Don't spend your time or money here.

I vacation and work along the South Carlina coast so I eat at many Restaurants. Sara J's is by far the best when it comes to "THE BEST FOOD". Everything about this place is perfection, They have by far the best flounder I have ever tasted but that's just the start. I've dined at Sara J's many time and it is by far the beast food in South Carolina as far as I'm concerned. Outstanding wait staff makes it a pleasure to just be at Sara J's. Their food is outstanding no matter what you order, fish, shrimp, steaks but if you like deviled crab you are in for a treat of a lifetime. This is one of the most beautiful restaurants as well overlooking the inlet at Garden City and only a couple of blocks from the Garden City Pier. You will not be disappointed choosing Sara J's: The combination Platter is $17.95 and can actually feed 2 people or they have the seniors version (SMALLER PORTIONS) for $14.95.

We were very disapointed!! We have eaten at Sara J's almost since the time she opened in Garden City and have always been well pleased. This time however we were diasppointed. Ther first clue should have been that the parking lot was not crowded, the second one was that were seated immediately, because ther was not many customers. Dinner was served on a very small oval dish (6-8 inches long) contyaining a baked potato,slaw dish and the food. Very bad. The baked potato was poorly cooked and the oyster and scallops looked as though they had been sent down from a fast food restaurant up north. The hush puppies were not good. all in all it was a bad experience and we will not return.

Tired of paying a lot for so so food. Stopped at a local merchant in Garden Cithy and asked for guidance to a good restaurant. He said his favorite was Sarah J's and we would not be disappointed. It was our anniversary and they treated us like family. I want 3 things from a restaurant, food to look good, taste good and see value in the pricing. They hit the bulls-eye on all three and waiter Tommy was spot on for personality and service. Will return next year for our anniversary.

I love seafood and Sara J's looked like a good Seafood Restaurant. I will rate the food since I was disappointed and will not eat there again. The hush puppies were served first and were just barely warm and chewy so I only ate one. I ordered the seafood platter and was disappointed except for the fried shrimp. Flounder for the platter is extra so I tried the white fish. I would say the food was just OK but not good enough to go back. I guess I am spoiled with the seafood at Calabash, NC.

Sara J's had been a favorite seafood restaurant for some 10 years - UNTIL - this year's September visit. The menu appears to have changed, portions are Small - $5.00 Charge for sharing a meal - food quality certainly didn't meet expectations. There has been a major change. So unfortunate. Will seek another seafood restaurant for my famiy and guests.

Never again... arrived early, 9-6-11, before 6 pm, selected the combo, wanted oysters and Flounder, white fish was the option, $1.00 xtra for flounder, said yes. The oysters were good, the $1.00 xtra flounder was pasty jerky, if you could even do this to flounder... the baked pot, was less than warm and couldn't decide if it was warmed over from last night or just over cooked early... slaw was tasteless... oh well, live and learn...

I decided after 2 years to give Sara J's one more try. I wish I had not. I was seated at a table by the door to the deck and the place was not full there were other tables. Every time the door opened the wind blew everything off the table. The waitress got the order all mixed up there were only 2 of us. I ordered oysters on the half shell they were not cold, the oyster stew was thin and had to be seasoned. I ordered the casserole and it was mostly bread with one shrimp and one scallop. My husband had stuffed shrimp not really good. The bill was outrageous. There are so many better restaurants in Murrells Inlet...Why do people stand in line to eat this food! Never again!

Having eaten at Sara J's many times in the past, it was a given that on our first visit to Garden City in several years that we would eat there again. We certainly weren't disappointed. The wait was a little long but they were very busy--just difficult to keep a 5-year-old child occupied during the wait. The waitress was doing her best but since the place was so busy, she was pushed to handle everyone. All that having been said, the food was fantastic, as always. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone seeking tasty, well-prepared fresh seafood.

Our party of 20 went to this restaurant last night and we have nothing to say but great things. The food was great, the prices were very reasonable, and the service was outstanding. The service is what stands out the most. The bus boys were very entertaining to watch. They walked so fast and gracefully with those trays over their head I would definitely recommend this restaurant.

We've been eating at Sara J's ever since I was a little girl and I've always loved it! We always eat on the porch. They start you off with their famous hush puppies, which are always delicious. The portions are perfect, and I always have a little to take back to the condo for later! The wait always is a bit long, but I love to browse in the gift shop and walk outside. And their desserts are amazing! Sara J's will always be one of my favorite places to eat!

We were very disappointed with the experience! Service was very rushed considering that the restaurant was only quarter full. Hush Puppies stale and cold.soup out of a can. Server joked that of course 'marinara sauce' came from a can! Very greasy food. We were happy to get out - having paid more than the meal was worth.

Somethings change while others stay the same. We have been going to Sara J's for the last 5 years, and has become a family favorite. The food was superb as always, but this year we brought all our grandchildren, and you know the biggest disappointment was for the kids. 2 of the kids came last year and got these spray tattoos, and all they talked about was which one they were getting. Then we show up late July, its packed, and no tattoo gal. Try explaining that to 4 kids under 9 that wouldn't quit talking about such a thing. To me it was all about the great food, but to them chicken fingers taste the same anywhere, but they remembered the tattoos. Oh well, luckily we ran into that tattoo gal at another nearby restaurant. Needless to say they already know where they want to eat this year.

this was the worst seafood i have ever eaten. the place looks great and the service was great but my god i think the fish had been frozen then thawed in a microwave because the center of the fish was cold(never had that before) we thought this would be good but those places that have the buffets are better than this crap.

I took my daughter and son and law, my son, and friends with two daughters....a group of eight. Service was great, we were given a choice of inside or outside. We chose outside, nice breeze over looking the inlet. I had the oysters and scallop combo and it was outstanding. Oysters were above average and the scallops were so sweet and succulent! Salad and baked potato was very good, no one had any complaints to my knowledge....We will definitely go back. Was my 3rd time at Sara J's, but the first in over 10 years and it was just as good as before...

Four of us ate. Three of us ate the Senior Platter- Oysters and Shrimp were under cooked. Clams were not good. The only thing on the platters that was good was the fish. The platters are smaller and so the portions are smaller which did not matter since the food was not good, The fourth person order blackened mahi mahi and said it was good. After many years of eating only at Sara J's we will be finding another place to eat when we come back to the beach next month.

Always been a favorite restaurant when goto Myrtle every year for past 9 years but this year was horrible!!! Waited over an hour--which is commom and use to it because we had a party of 17!! It was too hot in the main dining room--when walked out thru hallway--the AC was blasting!! My hubby ordered one of the Treasures of the Sea platters!! Had no salad or potatoe that came with it!!!! Waitress was rushing us thru our meal!! We had 2 tables-parents sat at one and kids at another with differ waitresses and had to pay 2 bills!! Although my waitress loused up our bill and put one of the other parents meal on ours. Was not noticed when I paid. But when it was noted by the other couple-my bil was redone and I resigned the new cost which was less!! But the bill that was to be void still showed up on my checking account!!!! That made me MAD!!! MIGHT NEVER GO BACK!!!!!!!!

Have been going to Sara J's since I was a little girl... had to convince other members of our family to go this year because they'd been hearing bad reviews over the past year or so... wish I would have listened... A lot has changed in a short amount of time... The food was mediocre at best, the atmosphere was still beautiful, but the prices were very high, and the amount of food was very low... Looking for somewhere new. :/

This was first time (May 4th, 2010) my wife, me, and my family ate at this restaurant and it was wonderful beyond description! Great food, service and atmosphere (Not to mention a beautiful place too) !!! We will be back this weekend coming for Mothers Day. We'll be driving 100 miles to come to Garden City, but believe me, IT IS WORTH THE TIME AND DISTANCE. We really enjoyed it !!!!! If they were located in Summerville, SC, I know a stove that would be for sell. Thanks Everyone, Frank

We have been vacationing in Garden City Beach for the last 16 years and have been loyal Sara J's customers the entire time. The quality of the food is always god. the staff is very friendly. Certainly (like any good restaurant in the MB area) the wait can be long, but it is well worth it. We alos use their take-out service. And of course, one has to get their new t-shirts every year.

I have a beach home in Myrtle Beach so I visit frequently. My favorite restaurant there is Sara J's! I was taught by my father that you rate a good restuarant according to the number of cars in the parking lot. Sara J's lot is always full. The earlier you go the shorter the wait. They have the best tasting shrimp I have ever had! I highly recommend Sara J's!!

My girlfriend and I come to Surside every year on vacation in September. I can't tell you how many times we've both passed by Sara J's and note "look at all the cars. We finally decided this year 2009 to eat there. It was better than good. Excellent. I am a critic of good or bad seafood and again it was excellent. We were fortunate to get there around 5:00 and got a seat outside. Great view. We will be back next September around the middle of the month and plan on coming back to Sara J's.

My family has been going to Garden City, SC. close to 30 years! We absolutely LOVE Sara J's. True the wait is long, but well worth it and we tailgate to make the time go by faster. Being a Marylander, we are very critical of seafood and how it prepared; however, Sara J's does a great job! The food is excellent, staff is professional and prompt. If you are willing to wait for good food, then Sara J's is the place!

Been traveling to Myrtle Beach all of my life and every year it goes without saying that we are going to Sara J's at least twice during the week. The food is EXCELLENT, especially the fried shrimp. We have never had a bad experience with food or service. This past June we vacationed again and ate there twice and it was great!! My only concern is the fries - please go back to the old fries.We went to the beach in January of 2009 and made certain we went to Sara J's, but were broken hearted when we found it closed until sometime in February. Please keep up the great work and we look forward to our next visit.

July 1, 2009 We have been coming to Garden City for over 10 years. Each time we try to take our family out for one nice meal. We had always seen the crowds waiting at Sarah J's so decided this year we had to try it. I wish we hadn't. We paid $$$$ for a very small piece of mahi mahi. We were disappointed and would not recommend or go back to Sarah J's. Prices to high for quality and quantity of food.

We decided to try Sara J's because it was highly reccommended by several locals. We were extremely dissapointed with the food. My lobster was raw and cold in the middle. My husbands seafood platter was very greasy. The prices are very high and I expected a fine dining experience for the price. They may as well provide plastic tableware. The atmosphere is dirty and noisy. We don't know why anyone would reccommend this place. We will never go back!!!!! There are too many other restaurants to choose from where you can get a great meal for reasonable prices.

If you go you have to eat on the deck, its enclosed and has a great view of the Salt Marshes. Best Shrimp and Oysters i have ever had and the Hushpuppies are out of this world. Its the only thing i could think about the rest of our trip. We were talking about it even on our trip home. Definitely will be a regular place to visit from now on each time we are in the area!!!

We have always loved Sarah J's. This week we were very dissappointed for the first time. Our appetizer, soup and main course arrived on top of each other. We were almost done eating in 20 minutes so the food would be warm. We were barely finished when the server asked us if we wanted dessert! We both had indigestion. If you go, do not order one course before finishing the one you are eating.

We ate at Sara J's twice last week (8/24/08). Both times was really good. Our group of 11 enjoyed it. The fried shrimp, fried oysters, fried flounder, and fried scallops were all good. The clam chowder, sauteed shrimp and teriyaki shrimp were delicious! Some of us did not like the cole slaw, but we had enough food that we didn't really need it. We'll definitely go back next time we are at the beach.

As a local, the service at this restaurant is probably one of the worst I have ever experienced here in our area. Our food was rushed out to us because they were so busy, and it was not worth the price. We also we not offered any type of dessert, or asked how our meals were. Our drinks also went empty twice. The wait was definitely not worth the experience. Also the restaurant is very loud, and you have to shout to talk to the person sitting right next to you. I would NOT recommend this restaurant to anyone.

Our family went to Sara J's on 8-3-08. Several of our friends had eaten here before and loved the food but warned us to go early or you will wait for a table. The restaurant open's at 4pm and we got there at 4:15pm and was seated right away. By 4:30pm every table inside was taken. Our waitress was very nice and helpful. Our party ordered the Sara J combo, shrimp pasta, 2 choice combo - shrimp & deviled crab, and kid's chicken tender's. Everyone was happy with what they ordered. The shrimp pasta was VERY good. I LOVED the cocktail sauce, it is the best I have ever tasted. We enjoyed our dinner and would go again just remember to go early!

I really hope that the owner and wait staff trainers will read these reviews. The foot was good, but we almost had to explain our drink order to the waitress and we order a standard drink off their dinner menu. Others were seated after us and served before us having ordered what appeared to be comparable. We had to ask several times for refills on tea and water. Finally getting other staffers to help us. The waitress acted as if she had rather be anywhere else than where she was. We went around 4:30 to beat the crowd so we can't say she was tired yet. We thought the food was fair, a little overpriced, but then our opinion was tainted somewhat by our uninterested waitress. We'll try again, and review again next year. My mother and I will be going again in October. Hopefully the wait staff has improved.

We used to come here every year, until this time. The shade on the deck fell when the velcro straps let loose. It hit two of us in the head. The manager showed no sypathy towards what happened. The bill came and nothing was taken off for their injuries. When we asked that he do so, he only took off for one, when two were hurt. He was very rude and uncaring. I will never go back. Most restaurants would have taken care of the entire bill considering none of us finished eating once the accident happened and we were nice enough not to make a scene in the middle of their busy restaurant.

Sara J's is our favorite beach resturant for seafood and has been for a number of years. My wife and I are light eater's so it is not unusual for us to share a meal. Our favorite is the senior seafood platter, which is a light serving but even with us sharing, we ask for a doggie bag. We also use their carry out service if there is a long line. We recommend to get fast service, be in line by 3:45 since after that, you may have to wait an hour or so. Nothing is better on the south end of the beach.

My family has been dining at Sara J's for years. We've had good experiences and not so good. Typically off-season is the best time to visit. During peak season it is common to get frantic waiters. We leave good tips all year. The wait staff work their asses off and should be commended for putting up with all kinds of rude people.

Yes, it appears the owner-manager is writing most of the good reviews. The Sara J's of the 90's and early 00's is not the the Sara J's of today. Prices have inflated, portions shrunk, and the attitude of the servers and manager are terrible. Near the end of our over-priced child-portioned meal we noted an item we had ordered had not been served. We said "That's OK, just take it off the bill". The manager-owner refused. She said "the server should have brought it and you should have asked for it sooner, - the bill will not be adjusted". She was an arrogant _itch. I'll not return unless new owners take over and will tell others to do the same!

The food was very good but the noise level in the porch area was horribly loud. This was not necessaraly Sara J's fault but a large group of yankees who thought it appropriate to SCREAM between two large tables to each other while others were trying to enjoy their meals. My only complaint is that the management did nothing to quite the guests eventhough many tables had complained about the noise level. Otherwise the food was wonderful and I will return to dine. Hopefully the quality of guests will improve next time.

Maybe my favorite restaurant anywhere! The best seafood and hushpuppies and great atmosphere. Sit on the porch with a view of the creek if the weather is good. Also, an amazing pina colada!

We've been going to Sarah J's for the last 13-14 years when we vacation in Garden City Beach. The quality of food and service hasn't varied one iota during that time - always top notch. Thw wait staff is always friendly regardless of how crowded it is. It's one of our favorite places to eat.

This was our 1st visit and we really enjoyed every aspect. My fish on the combination platter was cooked to perfection. Our waitress was excellent. Our entire family is coming back on Labor Day and Sara J's will be our 1st eating out experience! I plan on getting a t-shirt then, too!

Over the years we have we have been going to Sarah J's for our seafood meal, over the years it has always been very, very good and we have over the years recomended it to many friends and people. What in the world happened on 6/4/08. Our fish was extremely greasy, the hushpuppies that were always sooo good were like 3/4 cooked balls of dough. My wife could not even get a small portion of flounder, she always could before. The only way she could get flounder was to order the one $19.95 portion which was 4 large pieces. She ate one piece and carried the rest with us which wasn't that great to eat later. My meal, Sarah J's seafood platter, gave me a yucky feeling stomach for the rest of the evening and into the next day because of the grease. Again I say, what in the world happened, we are just sick that our favorite seafood place has gone sour.

I have eaten at Sara J's at least 15 times over the last 14 years, and I have to say that the service and quality of food has consistently gone down over the years. The first time I went there (in 1994) I thought it was the best restaurant in the Grand Strand. When I went there last week, I honestly believe I could have gotten better shrimp at Long John Silver's. The wait staff has progressively gotten younger and more rude over the years. If you go during tourist season you will wait at least one hour, and the food is just a little better than fast food. I am so sad to see a restaurant that used to be so fantastic turn into a less-than-mediocre establishment.
