Hot Fish Club: Cool History, Cool Menu, Cool Restaurant, Hot Name

Get your grub on at this popular Murrells Inlet eatery

You’d be hard pressed to find a Myrtle Beach-area restaurant with more history than Hot Fish Club in Murrells Inlet, just like you’d be hard pressed to find a better company for stay & play golf packages than MBGolf.com.

The original Hot Fish Club was founded in the late 1700s by the planters of All Saints Parish, a social club dedicated to epicurean pursuits, with gourmet food, strong drinks and festive times. The first club was said to be on Drunken Jack Island, located just a few miles south of the current location. Eventually, the original was dismantled and laid to rest, and today, an ever-shifting sand bar off the coast of Huntington Beach State Park is all that remains of the site.

Thankfully, Hot Fish Club lives on. The present installment is, fittingly, located in the oldest existing restaurant building on the Grand Strand, and it remains a favorite gathering place for anyone seeking great food and drink, and lively conversation. They truly pride themselves on personal service, and a desire to satisfy each and every guest.

Most of the menu items served at Hot Fish Club are sourced locally for superb freshness and quality, such as milk from local farms, fish from day boats and local fresh produce. The menu includes favorites such as the lobster pot pie, with chunks of lobster, shrimp and scallops in a white wine cream sauce topped with scratch-made puff pastry. There also is the blackened red snapper, topped with fresh pico de gallo and avocado, served over sautéed spinach and local, stone-ground grits. If turf is more your thing, try the chicken fried chicken. This dish comes with country ham and onion gravy and is served with mashed potatoes and bacon green beans, then topped with onion straws.

Tradition, food, fun: It’s all there waiting for you at Hot Fish Club!
