We loved Drunken Jacks. It was our first meal of the week and a mouth watering meal it was.
Image

Doug started off with a shrimp cocktail. He really enjoyed it because he talked about it all week. I did try one shrimp and it was good.
Image

Of course the hushpuppies are outstanding.
Image

Doug got the shrimp platter as his entrée and he enjoyed every bite.
Image

I got the sautéed shrimp appetizer and shared a baked potato with my sister in law. It was more than enough food and probably my favorite meal of the week. Delish!
Image

We had a wonderful view of the inlet during dinner and I really enjoyed watching the little boats come through while we ate.

Drunken Jacks gets an A+ from us. The service and food were excellent.

Christine,

You are very welcome. I know all of us have different taste and expectations when it comes to eating out. We can hear someone say that a restaurant is wonderful but then we can see a pic and know it is not our kind of wonderful :lol: . There are so many restaurants in Myrtle Beach and picking one can be overwhelming. I enjoy trying to help our members. We have now tried Drunken Jacks 3 times and loved it each time. I don't think you will be disappointed.

The posts here in the past have been positive and negative in equal numbers. We are on the positive side. We have never had a bad meal or bad service.

Positives-
Good food
Good view
Hushpuppies

Negatives-
high prices
Long waits

Whether you choose to go or not really depends on what your priorities are. If only choosing based on food, I dont think it's worth the extra cost. If choosing for food and view and not worried about cost, Drunken Jacks offers that. I personally love seafood and choose based on cost and quality. View not that important. I would personally spend half the money and hit Driftwoods on a Monday and get buy one get one half off entrees.

The first time we went to Drunken Jack's we waited over two hours to get a table. It was 90+ degrees and we waited marsh side with a few drinks and an appetizer. The experience was good enough that I would wait that long again. We've been two more times since and thoroughly enjoyed it each time. Both the Steak Neptune and the Grouper Royale are worth their $37 price tag. I had a special one visit I think it was crab or lobster topped blackened Mahi which was outstanding! With that being said, I'm not rich. That's one expensive meal that I have to think long and hard about before going. While I appreciate that kind of food, neither my fiancee nor our 8 year old do.

The long drive from North Myrtle and the long wait normally keeps our crew closer to home for dinner. Usually every two or three years we will make the trip and it is always worth it.

I think I will wait until my 4 year old is older I think it would be a nightmare if we had to wait that long for dinner, but I will still consider it in the future thanks...

Just got back from Drunken Jacks. It is my favorite restaurant anywhere. I love their hush puppies. The seafood is great, one of the best shrimp and grits ever. We always take the marshwalk afterwards to let the food digest and to take in the amazing views. Whatever you do, don't tell anyone about this place. It is crowded enough already. :-)
