Authentic, homemade Southern Bar-B-Que Buffet with melt-in-your-mouth fried chicken and a large array of comfort foods to please anyone’s taste buds.
Inlet Bar-B-Que features a reasonably priced all-you-can-eat buffet with sweet tea or soda and all the desserts

“We invite you to enjoy an authentic, homemade meal at our Inlet Bar-B-Que dinner table. Bring your whole family for lunch or dinner and celebrate good times with an incredible meal in beautiful Murrells Inlet.”
A Bit of Background: Prosser’s BBQ
Inlet Bar B Que opened for business in April 2021 in Murrells Inlet with some staff from the legendary Prosser’s BBQ, which had long occupied the spot but closed due to the pandemic.
“We were heartbroken,” waitress Beverly Springs said. “I think everybody in the inlet was heartbroken when Prosser’s left. It was such a staple for 18 years.”
Stacy Mims, the owner, wants to continue Prosser’s legacy that was such a popular restaurant in Murrells Inlet for several years. Mims also owns Schoolhouse BBQ in Scranton.
“Unfortunately under circumstances, they weren’t able to continue, but seemingly had a great reputation, a good business, lots of support, even when they had to, unfortunately, shut down, so I just thought it was a great opportunity for me to step in. Basically do the same thing they were doing and keep on going,” Mims said.
Continuing the Legacy
To maintain that consistency, Mims kept former staff from Prosser’s, including Springs, who worked for them for 18 years.
“It’s always been home,” Springs said. That’s what Mims said it will continue to be.
Inlet Bar B Que offers authentic South Carolina BBQ and a country buffet. Our menu changes some every day and each night.
“When you come in you get a smiling face and you got good food and that’s the ticket right there,” Springs said.
“We were able to come in seemingly at a time that the beach is exploding. People have been shut up long enough. They’re ready to go, so hopefully, we’ll be here to serve them,” Mims said.
Inlet Bar-B-Que offers several catering options as well as bulk orders, individual plates, or purchase any item individually including bar-b-que by the pound.
Catering also offers rolls, sweet tea, eating utensils, and all paper products for an additional cost.
What Folks are Saying about Inlet Bar B Que
Among the many Google Reviews, Local Guide Joshua Wypij found something familiar about Inlet BBQ:
This place is great!
It’s almost exactly the same as Prosser’s, and I only say almost because of the following;
- the chairs and some of the lighting have been updated.
- the pulled pork is a little different. Has a little more spice and it’s not as moist. Not bad at all. Just different.
- the food is better. Deviled crabs are perfect. The Mac & cheese is to die for. The hush puppies have some corn in them and they’re addicting. The shrimp, the flounder, and all the fix’ns are perfect!
If you were a fan of Prosser’s, you won’t be disappointed.
They have the same reliable and friendly serving staff. The price is incredible!
Over on Yelp, Diane B also returned to a familiar spot to find something even better:
We were customers for many years of the previous restaurant in this space, so we decided to give this a shot. So glad we did!!!
The low country buffet was excellent, staff friendly and cleaner, brighter dining areas a big improvement.
Our favorite standbys- chicken bog, sweet potato casserole, Mac and cheese, flat biscuits, fried chicken, chicken and dumplings- all were fantastic!
Highly recommend this place for tasty country food and wonderful, friendly service at a great price! Absolutely love the soft-serve ice cream too!!!
