Foodies next rec (Myrtle Beach)

We are thinking of going to MB for a long weekend in the end of May (if we can ever decide what area to stay in and where to stay).

We are foodies and love seafood/fish. Hoping to get some recs for breakfast, lunch and dinner places, fun places for drinks and munchies (later at night), even places with entertainment.

We are in our early 40s and like lively places, preferrably not chains, but indepdendently owned with some character. Clean and fresh food a priority over character.

  1. Read this thread. I think you will find the best food at Murrells Inlet. Bon Appetit.

      Read it; thanks. Are there a lot of buffets in MB?
      We would consider it one night IF it was very fresh, offered a large variety and had lots of fish; we would pay extra (think of buffets in Vegas = cheap to expensive).

      We have never eaten at buffets unless the one time we were in Vegas; we don't even do brunch buffets, but if there is something spectacular, we are open to it.

        I would steer clear of buffets. I think you will only find chain buffet restaurants there.

        Check out Lee's Inlet Kitchen which is the oldest family owned restaurant there. You should find a wonderful seafood meal there. Bon Appetit.

          Prossers is the only buffet I'll eat at and it is excellent.

          Do not miss and wear your big pants. I can promise you will grossly overeat.

      2. I will recommend two buffets that are not chains. 1) Angleo's on South Kings Highway has an great Italian buffet and out of this world steaks. 2) Farm House on North Kings Highway- good country food.

        Stay far away from the all you eat calabash seafood buffets.

        1. Salt Creek Cafe - We went on the last night of our vacation and found it to be the best. The food was great and reasonable. The only regret was that we wished we went earlier!

          1. Consider staying in the Litchfield-Pawley's Island area. Very nice condos and beach houses available and you are close to the best food. We also like to drive to Georgetown to eat at Thomas's - small, old fashioned and The River Room. Both are on the Main Street by the River Walk
