Myrtle Beach Restaurant Suggestions

LBG Apr 15, 2004 01:15 PM

Going to Myrtle Beach for a wedding and wanted a couple of vittles recommendations for while I'm there. Looking for a place for dinner tomorrow night, as well as breakfast/lunch on Saturday. I've seen some posts about K&W, Pawley Island BBQ and Lee's Inlet Kitchen, but really can't tell what these are like (except for the BBQ of course). Would appreciate any local advice!

    If you're looking for fresh, high-quality seafood, don't miss Lee's Inlet Kitchen. I ate there for the first time last year and ate the best scallops I've ever tasted! Service was excellent and the atmosphere nice - not too stuffy, but cozy and charming. I've included a link to their website so you can learn more. Let me know what you think if you try it...

      Dockside in Murrell's Inlet (about a block from the very vey good as well Lee's) is fantastic too.

        it took my wife and I eight years to perfect this list of the best costal restaurants in south carolina . . . so get ready. the best is louis's at the hammock shops in pawley's island. frank's, which is also close by in pawley's island, is a close second. for a more casual atmosphere try lee's inlet kitchen in murrell's inlet. have heard that rice patty in georgetown is very good and have added it to our list for this summer. in myrtle beach, thoroughbred's is consistently good. north of myrtle beach, try the parson's table, which is my wife's absolute favorite. that's six; you are on your own to find a seventh worthy to be added to this list. if you do, let me know.

      If you're south of Myrtle Beach, near Pawleys or Litchfield, try The Litchfield Beach Fish House, casual dining and fresh seafood. I'd second the other post about Lee's Inlet Kitchen, very good. A little more upscale is Louis'@ Pawleys Island Hammock Shops, a bit more pricey but great shrimp&grits. In Myrtle Beach, The Sea Captain's House gets rave reviews, but I haven't eaten there in several years simply because I'm either at the North or South end of the Grand Strand. The Pawley's Island Tavern has good seafood in a down-to-earth setting.

          Last time I was at Capt Dave's Dockside they had the upstairs overlooking the inlet closed off for a party...I can't imagine a more beautiful setting and food!

          We're heading down in a few weeks for Bike Week. I've not been to MB in at least 20 years, so the recent suggestions are great.

            i live in new jersey and just got back from 4 days in myrtle beach, my son and i stayed at legends resort to play golf. most of the food is so-so, but we came upon a great little italian place called GIADA'S. mostly takeout with 6 tables. in a new development. 3590 st. james ave. 843-839-3450. food was fresh and very good. nice people. reasonable prices. of all the places that we ate this was the best. if i were back in myrtle, i would eat here a couple of times.
