Capt. Dave’s Dockside Restaurant served diners along the Marshwalk for nearly half a century, but is closing the doors next week to make room for a new seaside eatery in Murrells Inlet.
JPA Management Group is opening a new restaurant in the location called Catfish Johnny’s. The group also owns the J Peters chain of restaurants, that also operates in Pawleys Island.
Capt. Dave’s is closing this Sunday, May 27, and the new business opens in June.
Kenneth and Frank Owens opened Capt. Dave’s in 1974 as a family-owned operation.
The current staff is expected to continue working at Catfish Johnny’s.
