After playing eighteen beautifully maintained and challenging holes at Crow Creek Golf Course, our foursome traveled a little south to what I’ve dubbed “restaurant cove”. This is a short drive south on US 17. Make a left onto Mineola Ave off of US 17, this leads to Water Front Ave in Little River, SC.
Little River is a charming seaside village just south of the North Carolina state line and is home to some of the freshest, most succulent seafood on the planet. If you enjoy dining outdoors, then welcome to paradise. As we exited our vehicle, we were greeted by a collaboration of tantalizing aromas from the fabulous restaurants in this waterfront locale.
On our first day, we decided to dine at Fibbers on the Water. Fibbers sits on the beautiful Intracoastal Waterway and provides a very relaxing environment for one to sit back and enjoy a refreshing beverage after your round. Guests can look forward to a friendly and welcoming staff and a variety of delicious menu items in a clean, smoke free pub style atmosphere.
Their dinner menu has something for everyone. Here’s a few items that stood out, the fourteen ounce NY Strip and eight ounce filet mignon are cut in house and are cooked to absolute perfection. A bounty of the freshest seafood is also always available. The fresh local grouper and North Atlantic Salmon are a smash hit for their flavor and freshness. Other local favorites include Fibbers seafood pot pie, shepherd’s pie and the finest fish and chips this side of Dublin.
The lunch menu features local favorites like their award winning she-crab soup, a variety of scrumptious burgers, including their house specialty – the shrimp burger. There is also a choice of sandwiches and a tasty selection of freshly prepared salads. Fibbers is open every day for lunch and dinner. I tried the Fish and Chips and thoroughly enjoyed it. We spent several hours at this restaurant and never came close to breaking the bank. Visit Fibbers Official Site
On day two, we played Tidewater Golf Club, warmly regarded as the Pebble Beach of the East, play this beauty and you’ll see why. We decided to go back to “restaurant cove” as it was on the way back to our condo. This time we dropped in at Crab Catchers, a local favorite since 1996 that has catered to locals and tourists alike with their friendly, laid back atmosphere.
At Crab Catchers they offer an extensive menu with appetizers, steamed plates, sandwiches and dinners. Their seafood is prepared fresh and made to order. Appetizers include; Calamari, Mini Crab Cakes, Gator Bites and Conch Fritters…the list goes on and on. Steamed plates include; Steamed Shrimp, Alaskan King Crab Legs and Steamed Clams to mention a few.
An amazing variety of sandwiches are also available and include; Cheeseburgers, Pork Ribeye and Fish Tacos. The portions served are more than satisfying and the beverages are always chilled and refreshing. Any sandwich item can be served as a wrap or without bread and you can add a side.
Their dinner menu features so many tempting dishes, too many to mention, so here’s a few; An eight ounce “baseball cut” Sirloin Steak, A Seafood Platter which includes catch of the day, grouper, fried shrimp, crab cake and deviled crab. All dinner items are served with Coleslaw, Hush Puppies and a choice of another side.
I opted for the Grouper Special, fresh deep fried grouper that’s topped with onion and cheese sauce, I also added a side of their Famous Deep Fried Corn…deliciously messy. Folks, be sure to save room for dessert, as they have a selection of delicious homemade pies that everyone raves about. Check Out Crab Catchers Page Here
These two restaurants were well worth visiting and I would highly recommend them. Both feature outdoor seating with a breathtaking view of the Intracoastal Waterway and a super relaxed and jovial atmosphere. If you need to get out of the sun and prefer to dine indoors, simply let the hostess know. I hope this snapshot has been helpful and that you enjoy your visit to the Trail.
