Of course Murrells Inlet is also famous for its Marsh Walk, which is highlighted by a variety of waterfront dining options. From casual to upscale, you’ll find everything to suit yo
ur taste in one of the restaurants along the Marsh Walk. A few of the restaurants located at the Marsh Walk include Captain Dave's Dockside, Bubba's Love Shak, Wahoo's Raw Bar and Marina, Creek Ratz and Drunken Jacks.
Afterwards, go for a stroll on the wooden boardwalk along the natural saltwater estuary to truly enjoy the natural environment around you.
