The original Hot and Hot Fish Club was founded in the late 1700’s by the planters of All Saints Parish. The social club was dedicated to epicurean pursuits; gourmet food, strong drinks and festive times. The first club was said to be on Drunken Jack Island, located just a few miles south from here. Members of the original club described their past time spent on the island as the “happiest hours of their lives.” The Club was dismantled and finally laid to rest after the Civil War. An ever shifting sand bar off the coast of Huntington Beach State Park is all that remains of the original site. The Hot Fish Club today is located in the oldest existing restaurant building on the Grand Strand. Hot Fish Club remains a favorite gathering place today for discriminating locals and is open to everyone seeking Great Food, Great Drink, and Lively Conversation, in the spirit of those earlier revelers. We pride ourselves on our personal service and our desire to satisfy each guest.

    One of our favorite places to dine. Anything we expect in a restaurant is done at Hot Fish Club. The entire staff is friendly with smiles on their faces. The menu has something on it for everyone with generous portions.

    We had the Dungeness crab, and they were by far the best Dungeness crab the four of us have ever had to eat. They were very meaty, and the french fries were very crispy!

    Very happy with our dinner. We had drinks while we waited. Our table wasn’t quite ready but it wasn’t long. We started with the chowder and side salads-the chowder is always delicious and their dressings are very good. My husband and son enjoyed the seafood pasta and lobster pot pie. I ordered the small plate salmon with rice and spinach; it’s just the right size. No room for dessert!

    Great experience! We had a guest in from Nj and decided to try the Hot Fish Club and were so glad we did. The menu will accommodate many tastes, dinners, meat, fish, pasta, appetizers and sandwiches. We enjoyed everything. We had the crab appetizer and the scallops and sea bass. Everything was perfectly cooked and fresh! Really enjoyed our dinner and we will be coming back soon.

    Server just about disappeared after taking order (she did not bring with table's food, another gentleman did). Needed beverage refills, only got one & it was late in the dinner. Special appetitizer (asparahus & crab meat) either grossly OVERPRICED or grossly and unbelievably SMALL. Had to pay for salads (which were very good), instead of coming with meals like many competitors. Dinner (special grouper dish) was quite good though, but also a bit overpriced. The appetitizer also had bits of shell in the crabmeat.

    Wonderful, although hard to get reservations. Always crowded but food worth the time. and noise. Fresh! Hot! Delicious! Jesse was our server and was excellent, explaining new items on menu, fresh catches, even wines. Wife has Hot Fish sampler and salad. Almost too much for her. I had the Lobster Pot Pie and the Grouper Bites appetizer. House Chardonnay for both. This is in our neighborhood and we'll keep coming back. Thanks, Dean & Beverly Welch

    We’ve been here several times in the last year, this was by far the worst food overall. The steak was chewy and tasteless as were the crab legs and lobster tail. The other times here everything was excellent, not sure what has changed but very disappointing. The dessert and cocktails were delicious. Service was good.
