More info: Murrells Inlet is located in Georgetown County about 13 miles south of Myrtle Beach and 21 miles north of Georgetown, the county seat. Primarily a fishing village it has since developed along with the rest of the Grand Strand, as a tourist and retirement location. It is known for the Murrells Inlet Marshwalk, a 1⁄2-mile-long (0.8 km) boardwalk overlooking a natural saltwater estuary, which has many bars and restaurants.
Opened in 2002 on The Marshwalk, the Dead Dog Saloon is a full-service family-friendly restaurant with a huge indoor/outdoor deck on the waterfront. It has three bars, plenty of large-screen HD TVs, and the finest live music in the Carolinas.
