Myrtle Beach Grand Strand Recs for All Meals

I'm going to be in the Myrtle Beach area a twice over the next couple months, one time on business and one time on vacation. The vacation will be for an entire week and we are staying in Cherry Grove. I've been going to the area on and off for 40 years, so I'm very familiar with it, however what I'm not familiar with is a lot of Chowhound worthy restaurants. Surely with the growth of the area every year, there must be some hidden jewels in there somewhere that fit the bill. Anything goes for recommendations, breakfast, lunch, dinner, and any type of cuisine is open for consideration.

  1. Snooky's on Little River is a hidden gem. Great views of the ICW, primarily all fresh seafood. Have never had a bad meal there. Casual, very comfortable locals type place. This is my "go to" when I can't decide. Eat there several times when we're in that area on vacation.

      Thanks goodeatsinadive, the location sounds perfect.

    2. Head North to Calabash for some fresh seafood. A quick 20 minute drive into NC. A number of places serve seafood hot and ready. My personal recommendation is to go there for lunch. Just as good but less expensive.

        Anybody doing anything more creative there then fried these days?

        1. re: supernc

          I would suggest to maybe find a better choice....the last three meals I had in Calabash were horrid. I know I am spoiled because I live in Murrells Inlet where it is really hard to get a bad meal and usually I can find something to eat but the last place I got drug to I left without more than one bite of food. And tried not to get sick.

          I second Snooky's. 21 Main is new on the is getting great reviews

          Fibber's , Molly Darcy, and most of all Lunch with LuLu at Fat Harolds Grill

            Thanks LaLa, I have nothing against a good fried platter, heck as easy as that is to produce it seems no one can pull that off much anymore. Calabash will always be a special place for me, and odds are the group will want to visit, but I've found nothing noteworthy from Calabash in a long time. Thanks for recs, I'll look them up on the net.

              My dad holds a special place for Calabash to which is how I keep ending up there (everytime they visit)....last time (a couple of weeks ago) it was so bad I couldnt even pretend. lol
              I hope you have a nice trip!
