THE LOCALE | King Street Grille, Murrells Inlet

THE LOWDOWN | If you're looking for a happening place to watch sporting events, listen to live music, or somewhere to just kick back with a cocktail and enjoy the view of the marsh, the new King Street Grille in Murrells Inlet is calling your name. That's where we went for happy hour this week.

The new King Street Grille is located on the waterfront in Murrells Inlet next to Hot Fish Club, where a host of bars and restaurants have tried to make a go of it, from Jimmagans to Capt. Poo’s. You can also find a King Street Grill at The Market Common and several in Charleston. The chain is part-owned by Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger, and you will see his football jersey displayed on the wall.

You will also see TVs. Tons of TVs - 43 to be exact. King Street Grille carries all the sports packages. The establishment hosts trivia every Tuesday at 8 p.m., a deejay on Thursday nights and live music on Fridays and Saturdays.

King Street Grille has two inside and another on the indoor/outdoor deck. The latter bar is covered as are a variety of tables. There is also uncovered outdoor seating available. The inside has a number of high and low-top tables and booths.

Happy hour runs from 4 to 7 p.m. Mondays through Fridays. Drink deals include $1 lopped off domestic beers (making a Bud Light $2.50), $3.75 house liquors, $4 Long Islands and $4.75 wines. You can also enjoy appetizers for $7, including nachos, wings, egg rolls and sliders. On Sundays, Red Stripe beers are $2.50. Vodka is two bucks on Thursdays. And all day everyday you can snag Fireball shots for $3.
