Family Friendly Southern Eating in Greensboro NC and Myrtle Beach SC


I am looking for some Family Friendly Dining Solutions where I can enjoy the local cuisine and bring my 2 and 5 year old. I will be staying in Greensboro NC for a night Myrtle Beach SC for a week.

  1. I would recommend Lucky 32 in Greensboro for southern cuisine though I am struggling a bit with the family friendly aspect. Another alternative might be Stamey's BBQ, where the menu is more limited but they may better be able to accommodate the little ones.

    1. What exactly do you mean by "family friendly"? Virtually all restaurants in G'boro (and MB for that matter) have high chairs and are used to children. Many have kids menus.

      Relative to G'boro, it would be helpful if you could provide more details on price, location, cuisine, etc.

        Lucky 32 is not the type of restaurant where one sees a lot of young children. Perhaps they have high chairs and a kids menu but I kind of doubt it. It serves Southern influenced cuisine using local ingredients wherever possible. The chef is from Louisiana so there is a bit of Cajun-influence to his cooking. Expect entrees in the high teens to twenties. It on Westridge just north of Woodlawn.

        Stamey's is a Carolina BBQ joint with a limited menu beyond typical BBQ fare. Much more of a family place and you can eat for about $10 or so pp. Two locations. One across from the Coliseum and the other on Battleground on the north side of town.

          My post was aimed at the OP...

          PS, Lucky 32 is on Westover Terrace, just north of Wendover Avenue. I assume the auto-correct feature bit you?

      2. I'd recommend Fincastles Diner downtown. Great hot dogs, burgers, shakes and beer. We've dined their with kids and it's great for big and small people alike.

        1. I can't think of more than a handful of places in Myrtle Beach area that kids are not welcomed and none that well behaved kids would not be fine
