Mr. Fish opens seafood market in Myrtle Beach

MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) - The Original Mr. Fish Restaurant & Seafood Market has opened its seafood market two doors from its Myrtle Beach restaurant.

Ted and Sheina Hammerman are the father and daughter team who own and operate the restaurant, seafood market and full-service catering.

The restaurant offers raw bar items, sandwiches, platters and other lunch and dinner items.

Expanding Mr. Fish's food service, the seafood market offers fresh seafood to go, hand-selected by Ted Hammerman, featuring a variety of crabs and fish, scallops, oysters, clams, lobster tails and more, along with Mr. Fish's homemade sauces. Frozen seafood items can be shipped worldwide. The seafood market also stocks frozen bait.

Mr. Fish recently hosted an oyster roast, with the shells from the roast being used to revitalize oyster beds in Withers Swash. Surfrider Foundation's Grand Strand chapter is playing a key role in the cleanup of the swash.

With more than 20 years of experience, Ted Hammerman says the most valuable product Mr. Fish could sell is information.

"I've done seafood consulting worldwide and have been instrumental in starting or improving processing facilities in South America and Asia," he said. "My mantra is 'advise, educate and monitor' so I can help the seafood processor increase profits and save time and money."

Consulting is also provided for supermarket training and merchandising and for broadline distributors.

The Original Mr. Fish Restaurant, located at 3401 N. Kings Highway, is open from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. Monday through Saturday.The market is open Monday through Saturday 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. For more information, call 843-492-0374 (market) or 843-839-3474 (restaurant) or visit
