Islamorada Fish Company next to Bass Pro Shops closes

The Islamorada Fish Company Restaurant at Myrtle Beach Mall is closed.

The restaurant, which opened in 2004 and is located adjacent to Bass Pro Shops, is a part of the Bass Pro Shops Restaurant family.

“The Islamorada Fish Company Restaurant in Myrtle Beach ceased operations this past weekend in conjunction with a broader revitalization taking place at the development,” said Bass Pro Group director of communications Jack Wlezien in a statement. “Bass Pro Shops Outdoor World will remain open. All restaurant associates received severance packages and the option to apply for openings at Outdoor World.”

A call to the company Monday morning resulted in this answering machine message:

“Thank you for your call. As of January 15, 2017, the Islamorada fish company restaurant in Myrtle Beach has closed for business. It has been a pleasure serving you for the last 12 years. We apologize for any inconvenience and welcome all of our very loyal guests to visit us in one of our many locations throughout the United States in your travels.”

There are 17 other restaurants around the country, and no others in South Carolina, according to the company’s website.
