Had great food at Driftwoods this year. Had not eaten there before and tried it out based on Gary's recommendation. Pretty much Murrel's inlet quality fresh seafood without the price (or view). Free hush puppies as an appetizer were great. Love the sweet hush puppies that I only get in MB. Plenty of butter and an unlimited supply of hush puppies. Could just about make a meal on these. They also have some kind of seafood spread on the tables that you eat on crackers. Even my non-seafood eating kids enjoyed this spread. Have no idea what was in it, but it was great.
Early bird entrees (4-6) cost around $13 and that includes entree, a non-alcholic beverage, and dessert. I had the fried shrimp and scallops and baked potato. Enjoyed all the items. Non-early bird entrees range between $13 -$17. I think the largest seafood platter was around $17 which would be a $30+ item at most places on the inlet. They also have senior discounts and a dinner for two seafood platter which was around $27. They have sandwiches, pasta, steaks, prime rib, etc.. if you don't like seafood.
Driftwoods will now be an annual stop for us. Can't beat the price for the quality of food. It is located on 707 and is not far off of bypass 17.

We ended up going here two nights during our stay. We always take advantage of the BOGO 1/2 off on Monday. We arrived around 5:00 and had almost an hour wait (we had a party of 15). I had the captains platter and the wife had a filet. Both were excellent. My brother and his wife had a selection of broiled seafood and they both said it was as good or better as anything that they had eaten on the waterfront. This place has turned into our must have place in MB. Prices are fair and the food has always been good for us. The Captain Platter I had was $18.95 and includes fish, clams, fried oysters, crab cake, shrimp, scallops, and two sides. They bring out sweet hush puppies and some kind of dip before the meal. Both are excellent.

One thing I have noticed though is that the word is out on the place. The place is hidden on HWY 707 and it was still packed on both days that we went and that was with a 5:00 arrival. We had a 1 hour wait on our second visit and that was with a party of 8 on a Thursday night. We even saw a person from our home town coming out, so it's obviously not just a locals place anymore. It's a good value and good food. Even the non seafood selections are good quality. I'm feeding six people every time we go somewhere and it's hard to find a place that all six enjoy, but we get no complaints when picking this place. Just keep it a secret so I don't have to wait any longer. :tongue3:

I would think that you guys do a lot of eating in during tourist season. Even while down during April, Driftwoods had a wait on BOGO 1/2 off night. I just thought it might of been the BOGO thing, but going on Thursday proved me wrong. I guess you have to do a lot of carryout from June-August.

We went to Driftwoods on Monday July 16 for the BOGO 1/2 off. We got there about 5:15 and had no wait. By the time we had left there was a good crowd waiting outside for tables. Food once again was excellent. I had an appetizer of she crab soup and the Captians seafood platter which had fish, shrimp, fried oysters, scallops, crab cake, and clams. The cost of the platter was $20.95 which is a bargain for what you get. It is huge.

Been almost 20 years since I have tasted food in M/Inlet. This might be a reason for me to stop on my trip back from Charleston.
