The history of Murrells Inlet is rich and diverse. Native American tribes, Spanish explorers, English colonists, and even pirates have called Murrells Inlet home. Today it is a quiet but colorful fishing village perfect for relaxing and watching the colors of the sky at sunset. If you're hungry for seafood, restaurants here serve the best in the area. Carefully prepared scallops and mussels, crispy crab cakes, and salmon piccata may tempt you. Or try their southern favorites: shrimp and grits, seafood and corn chowder, or lobster pot pie. And who can resist their crab or lobster grilled cheese? If you’re in the mood for something more “down to earth,” a bacon, egg and cheeseburger aims to please. Whether you’re in the mood for excellent seafood or more land-based deliciousness, Murrells Inlet is always the place to be.
