Welcome to Lee's Inlet Kitchen. Enter our restaurant and take a journey back into time. Lee's is the only Murrells Inlet restaurant still owned and operated by the original family; since 1948!
We prepare our fresh seafood in the same Lowcountry-Murrells Inlet style that our family did in the 1940's. Customers tell us this style of food can't be found anywhere else.
Visit our History page for the complete history of Lee's Inlet Kitchen. Included are
many old photos dating back to 1948.

Best of the Beach 2012 LogoEford and Pearl Lee moved to Murrells Inlet in 1945 and began managing Lokey's Restaurant (now) Wayside. They then managed White's Restaurant, formerly next door but long since torn down. In October of 1948, they opened Lee's Inlet Kitchen at this location in what had originally been a gas station. Beginning with ten tables, the restaurant has been enlarged four times. Their son, Bill, owned and operated Lee's for fifteen years and as third generation owners and operators, we're proud to continue the tradition.

Our fresh seafood is prepared in the same manner as it was originally, although the price has had to change with the times. (in 1948 a seafood platter was $1.50!) Many of the recipes used such as our Shrimp Salad and Creole, Tartar and Cocktail Sauces, Corndodgers and famous Onion Rings have been handed down from generation to generation. We hope you'll enjoy your dinner and come back to see us again soon.

Dexter and Kelly Lee Dorman
