Restaurants near Captain’s Quarters: Hot Fish Club
Most visitors to Captain’s Quarters and other Vacation Myrtle Beach resorts find themselves at some time looking for a seafood restaurant. Murrells Inlet, about 14 miles South of Captain’s Quarters, has a plethora of restaurants that specialize in all types of seafood—it is known as the Seafood Capital of South Carolina.
But only one of the many seafood restaurants can claim to have roots that go back to the late 18th Century – the Hot Fish Club. At one time the restaurant was an exclusive club located on Drunken Jack Island and was almost certainly the first dining place in the inlet. Today it is located next to Morse Park Landing at the southern end of the inlet, and is open to all.
At the Hot Fish Club you get a choice of dining in the relatively formal main restaurant or, of joining in the fun of the Gazebo Bar which features relaxed informal open air dining on the waterfront. This low country style bar and restaurant offers live entertainment Wednesdays through Sundays and a Happy Hour from 4 p.m. till 7 p.m. The clientele at the Hot Fish Club is of all ages, from college kids to retirees. Understandably the menu is mostly seafood, but also offers the finest hand cut Angus beef in the Inlet. In addition to their fixed menu, which is extensive, the restaurant offers nightly appetizer and dinner specials. The Hot Fish Club offers several rooms for private functions ranging from side and back porches, the tavern and the Gazebo, which can seat up to 250 people.
Don’t forget to take along your VMB Card, you got it upon check-in at Captain’s Quarters—it's your room key! The VMB Card will entitle you a complimentary appetizer of up to $8 in value for your party with entrée purchases. Please note that the Hot Fish Club is closed on Mondays.
