Murrells Inlet restaurant announces closing after more than a decade in business

After a little more than a decade in business, a Murrells Inlet restaurant has closed, according to a Facebook post.

Salt Water Creek Cafe, at 4660 Highway 17 Bypass, announced its closing Sunday morning in a Facebook post, saying it’s closing for “financial reasons.”

Open since 2008, the restaurant’s menu featured fresh fish, fried seafood, pizza and SWC grit cakes.
