We all enjoy dining out when we’re on vacation, but — especially when the whole family is along for the trip — many of us have to walk a fine line between treating ourselves and conserving our dollars for vacation activities. And this is where a common restaurant lure, the “Kids Eat Free” offer, can come into play. When a portion of your party is enjoying a great meal out at no charge, you can splurge on restaurant visits while also conserving your vacation funds.
So, the next time you and your family are hungry for a meal out during your Grand Strand getaway, consider these Myrtle Beach area restaurants where you can treat your palate and your wallet simultaneously:
