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.
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 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.
