Myrtle Beach: Grand on the strand

Taste Myrtle Beach
The Myrtle Beach area has hundreds of restaurants offering everything from hamburgers to Coastal Carolina Cuisine specialties.

For those with endless appetites, all-you-can-eat buffets at Giant Crab and Original Benjamin’s offer fresh seafood, roast beef and the best desserts.

Is a Kodak vista on your menu? The Pier House Restaurant, a casual eatery, also offers a panoramic view of the Atlantic Ocean. Sea Captain’s House, with seafood as its specialty, has one of the Grand Strand’s best oceanfront views.

Good music and good food is a great combo, and both can be enjoyed at the Hard Rock Café, the House of Blues, Planet Hollywood and Jimmy Buffett’s Margaritaville.

American favorites are on hand at Sticky Fingers, famous for its smoked ribs, wings, pulled pork and more; Ultimate California Pizza, where diners debate over 80 toppings; and the River City Café, which features hamburgers, hand-cut french fries and some of the freshest salads in town.
