Recommendations for Myrtle Beach, SC

I will be traveling to Myrtle Beach for Christmas and need some help picking out some good places to eat. Fine Dining, Local hang outs, whatever the not to be missed spots please let me know.

  1. Try the Collector's Cafe. Don't let the strip mall location fool you. The food was excellent, nice atmosphere, and good wine list. They have a website with reviews and the menu - I would also recommend The Melting Pot. It's a (chain) fondue restaurant, but it's just a great time. The dessert tray alone is worth going for. Hope you have a great trip.

      1. If you're in the mood for Italian, you should try Villa Romano. The owner, Reynaldo, is from Rome. He and his wife oversee the kitchen and dining room every night, and the recipes are all Reynaldo's takes on Italian-American. It is delicious. The prices range from roughly 18-25, but you get salad, soup, a bruschetta appetizer and bread for that price. They get consistent votes for best Italian in MB.

        Don't overlook Murrell's Inlet, a few minutes south of Myrtle Beach, in your food quest. Some of the best seafood can be found down there. Have fun!

        1. Louis's at Pawleys Island is magical. Beard award winner does his own version of the classic Southern staple, Shrimp 'n Grits. Seafood is amazing and great atmosphere.

          1. I've been going to MB for over 25 years and my favorite is Sea Captains House. Seafood is excellant! Its also one of my favorite breakfast spots. It's right on the ocean so you can get a great view as well.
