5 Unique Restaurants to Try in Myrtle Beach

Sometimes, dining is more than just eating. It should be an experience. Atmosphere, service, comfort … they’re all factors in creating a memory. It’s in menu offerings and personal touches and thoughtfulness throughout.


Myrtle Beach has a wealth of dining options. Some experiences will make you want to add an eatery to every vacation you take here.


Whether it’s a local fave or somewhere famous, these are sought-after restaurants. You probably have a few of your own. Here are some we love here on the Grand Strand.

It’s the epitome of uniqueness. Art’s serves creative sushi, gourmet burgers, and a lineup of liquid-nitrogen cocktails. All with a view of the beach. You’ll find great service and delightful shareable appetizers. Examples: Fried Chicken Roll, Art Wings, or Pork Belly Bites. Work from local artists, available to buy, adorns the walls.

Art Burger Sushi Burger

Come for a wonderful happy hour, or, better yet, Wine Down Wednesdays. Enjoy live jazz and exquisite southern cuisine. It’s perfect for a special occasion and can transform a normal dinner into one, too. Prime steaks, global wines, and incredible cocktails. You’re in for a treat.

White Wine in Glasses

Enjoy an impeccable breakfast Monday through Friday, and an exemplary brunch on weekends. Comfort food has never been so comfy. Be sure to take something scrumptious with you from the bakery (you won’t have room to eat it now!) It’s the ideal breakfast spot after a morning of outdoor fun — or the start of a delightful day of nothing at all. Croissants Bakery & Bistro has enchanted visitors for more than 25 years. 

Croissants on Plate

Steamed oysters are a staple of Grand Strand cuisine. You can find some of the area’s finest in Murrells Inlet, the seafood capital of South Carolina. The friendly vibe of the Marsh Walk is on full display. Enjoy local fare, mellow nightlife, and live music in an open-air eatery. Besides oysters, the Lobster Pot Pie is out of this world. The gazebo is open late-night for good company and great drinks on the waterfront.

Fried Fish with Fries

This casual haunt is done up like Prohibition times (with a full menu of incredible cocktails.) Imagine Beef Tenderloin or a Bacon Mushroom Swiss Burger. A Smokin’ Oldie or Lavender Field cocktail. And Creme Brulee for dessert. There are so many delicious ways to go at Strong Waters, with locally sourced food. The cocktail menu changes seasonally, so be sure to visit often.
