What started out as a lady selling bottled water from a garbage can during bike week has turned into two staples on the main drag in Murrells Inlet. Leslye Beaver acquired the land in 1996, and after successfully selling water and beer during bike week, she decided to make it official, eventually opening a 13,000 square foot space for locals and tourists to hang out and have a good time.
The menu offerings at this Murrells Inlet watering hole range from straightforward bar food like mozzarella sticks and chicken tenders to American classics like grilled cheese and fried bologna sandwiches, as well as the requisite burgers and hot dogs. On the weekends, don’t be surprised to find an oyster roast or clam bake going on.
There are two Beaver Bar locations in very close proximity to each other. The original biker bar is smaller and indoors. The newer spot (“at the county line”) is a larger venue with outdoor space and live music on Friday and Saturday nights, pool tables, darts, Golden Tee, Buck Hunt, and more. Both places get plenty rowdy, but the vibe is mostly low-key and drama-free.
