Wicked Tuna

Fromm rating starAbout our rating system

Located a few miles south of the Grand Strand in Myrtle Beach, this fish palace is right on the water in the town of Murrells Inlet. With its calming light green and blue interior (yes, an under-the-sea theme) it makes a calming respite from the somewhat frenetic town outside its doors. Right from the host stand, you’ll notice the school of metallic fish arranged ever so artfully. Raw fish is the main draw here from yellowtail ceviche to tuna tataki. We’re also fans of the surprisingly light, crunchy and never greasy tempura rolls. It might sound like a cliché, but the food tastes better if you dine water-side, so come early on weekends to score a seat on the big shaded deck. Note: There are some “turf” options on offer here, if one of your party doesn’t eat fish.
