5 Myrtle Beach Restaurants You Should Visit

Golf might be what brings you to Myrtle Beach, but you have to eat when you get here. Just as you play new courses when you are in town, here are five local restaurants you should make it a point to frequent.  

Sea Captain's House – Sitting ocean front, the view and food at Sea Captain's House are hard to beat. Every table gets unlimited hush puppies and the menu features, but is not limited to, steak and seafood (I can vouch in the strongest of terms for the jambalaya). If your group gets one high-end meal, Sea Captain's won't disappoint.

Dagwood's – If you are looking for lunch after a morning round, Dagwood's is Myrtle Beach's best sandwich shop. Just blocks from the beach, Dagwood's offers hot and cold subs served on homemade bread that can't be beat. If local endorsement means anything, Dagwoods has been around since 1988 and has grown to include a sister store in Surfside.

Soho – A very cosmopolitan establishment, Soho brings a big city flavor to Myrtle Beach. Beer and wings give way to an extensive wine list, flavored martinis and sushi at one of the Grand Strand's trendiest restaurants.

Hot Stacks – One of the few things that exceeds the number of golf courses along the Grand Strand is the number of breakfast joints. Let me help narrow the field – you can't go wrong at Hot Stacks. As the name suggests, pancakes are the specialty but the Belgian waffles are at least their equal, and an omelet accompanied by a piece of country ham is the perfect fortification prior to play.

Murphy's Law Sports Bar – College and pro football, baseball playoffs, hockey, the NBA – it's all getting ready to start back up, and you will need a place to watch while in town. Murphy's Law has great hot wings and shrimp specials to go along with an abundance of televisions. Murphy's isn't a sports bar in the vain of Dave and Buster's. It's a gritty Pittsburgh bar (there are a lot of those in the area) with sports memorabilia all over the walls and lighting that won't win any awards. But it's got character.
