  • THE BEST SHOPPING IN MYRTLE BEACH. THEY HAVE EVERYTHING!!!! No really, they have everything. And it's literally a MAZE to find your way around, so awesome!!! It's like 3 or 4 levels of exploring. There is even a giant gorilla in the bottom of the store wearing a shirt that says "I got lost in the Gay Dolphin" NOT STROLLER accessible. 5/5
  • Visiting this place reminded me of coming here with my parents as a child. Hasn't changed in 40 years and I'm glad. My kids love shopping here as much as I did. They have cheap knick knacks to expensive gift and jewelry items. To me I view this place as an icon of Myrtle Beach. As everything has changed at this beach over the years, this place is a wonderful reminder of all the wonderful times I've had here since childhood.
  • Floors and floors of very nice and inexpensive souvenirs and gifts. Don't get me wrong, everything is not cheap. But they have a large selection of everything including plants and jewelry. If you have a few hours to kill you couldn't even look at it all. I have loved this place for years. I will continue to visit the Gay Dolphin as long as it stands.
  • This was my favorite place in Myrtle Beach! It will definitely be a tradition! They have anything and everything you can think of! And I love the stairs and fountain!
  • You can get lost in this store. If I had known about it first- I would not have visited any other gift shops. This one has an amazing selection. Be prepared to spend a lot of time looking around!
