If you know me well, you know how much I love fresh seafood! Having grown up 5 minutes from Port Canaveral and access to fresh catches, I can’t get enough of fresh seafood. Now that we live in South Carolina, I’ve got a whole new place to find fresh seafood.
Our anniversary was a few weeks ago so Judd decided to take me to Murrells Inlet for dinner at The Wicked Tuna. Nestled on the waterfront of the inlet, Wicked Tuna lives by the “Hook to Plate” motto. They take their fishing boats out every week to catch local grouper, snapper mahi-mahi and sea bass.
What We Ate
Initially I was going to order the Oysters Rockerfeller until I saw their sushi menu! I’ve been on a big sushi kick lately so one look at Wicked Tuna’s extensive sushi list and I was sold. I ordered the Fat Crab roll which is stuffed with shrimp tempura, cucumber, blue crab, spicy crab mix and spicy mayo. There was just enough heat to enjoy without feeling like my mouth was on fire!
Judd went for the blackened snapper sandwich. The snapper of course was caught locally. His sandwich was served with these uniquely-cut fries. He raved about the fries!
After our dinners we decided to order a dessert. After all we were celebrating! We ordered the S’mores Baked Alaska. A baked Alaska is basically ice cream and cake topped with meringue that is usually browned. I had seen them on The Great British Baking show and always wanted to try one. This version was made with chocolate and marshmallow while the plate was dusted with graham cracker crumbs.
Overall, our experience at The Wicked Tuna was pleasant. Our server was very knowledgeable and answered our questions about the menu. The food came out pretty fast. My sushi arrived first but Judd’s entree was not to far behind.
The only thing was I felt it was slightly overpriced for what it was. Murrells is a touristy area and a lot of the places down there have higher prices because of it. We will be back for sure just not too often. You can check out their menu here.
