Whether you have a big event to celebrate with the family or want an intimate candlelight dinner for two, the Grand Strand has plenty of options for dining on the water. Restaurants include everything from traditional southern cooking to scrumptious fresh seafood. Here are a few places to consider when looking for a delicious experience overlooking the ocean while visiting the Myrtle Beach area.

Pier House Restaurant
110 North Ocean Boulevard, Myrtle Beach

Pier House Restaurant, located at the 2nd Avenue Pier in Myrtle Beach, is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Just steps away from the water, this a great location for a family gathering, or intimate date with amazing views. Enjoy the gorgeous sunrise over the ocean while you eat breakfast and get ready for a busy day. Or visit the open air bar featuring a wraparound deck with comfy couches and chairs — a welcome respite after a day of fun in the sun. The extensive menu includes house made crab cakes, and shrimp and grits, a local favorite.

Sea Captain’s House
3002 North Ocean Boulevard, Myrtle Beach

This famous Myrtle Beach restaurant was first built in 1930. When Hurricane Hazel blazed through in 1954, it took the supports of the building with her. In 1962, the property became the restaurant it is today, a charming cottage overlooking the ocean. Enjoy breakfast, lunch, or dinner with warm southern hospitality at a restaurant people have enjoyed throughout the decades. The Sea Captain’s House has won more awards than any other restaurant in the area, including “Best Seafood Restaurant” from Southern Living Magazine four years in a row.

Art Burger Sushi Bar
706 North Ocean Boulevard, Myrtle Beach

Like the name suggests, Art Burger Sushi Bar offers sushi and burgers in a unique, fusion style restaurant with beach views. This restaurant prides itself on serving high quality, grass-fed beef with no hormones, antibiotics, or animal by products. They also offer gluten-free and vegetarian options, and a liquid-nitrogen bar. As an effort to support the local art community, a portion of the restaurant is dedicated for local artists to display and sell their work, free of charge.

Ocean Front Bar & Grill
100 9th Avenue North, Myrtle Beach

Originally known as Ocean Front Tavern, this restaurant started as a beer garden built over the beach on a wooden patio in 1935. In 1954, the location lost its boardwalk from Hurricane Hazel. The owners took it upon themselves to rebuild this local establishment into the restaurant it is today. Enjoy Johnny’s secret chili recipe that has evolved as it’s been passed down over generations. The beautiful scenery on the boardwalk will make you feel right at home.

Molly Darcy’s Irish Pub And Restaurant 
1701 South Ocean Boulevard, North Myrtle Beach

This one of a kind watering hole in North Myrtle Beach has an ample oceanfront patio with great views of the ocean. Sit outside and watch the waves roll in, while enjoying a cold beer or cocktail from their extensive menu. On the USA Today’s 10 Best List, Molly Darcy’s is a traditional Irish Pub with classic Celtic fare like shepherd’s pie, fish and chips, or corned beef and cabbage. Other menu items include burgers, soup and sandwiches. Stop by for a relaxing meal overlooking the beach after a long day of golf.

The Grand Strand is known for its beautiful beaches, and this is just a small sampling of the many restaurants that offer waterfront dining. There is plenty for every unique palate to enjoy when you visit the Myrtle Beach area!
