Five Best Sports Bars in Myrtle Beach to Watch March Madness

March 19, 2013

The five best places in Myrtle Beach to watch the NCAA TournamentOne of the great events on the sporting calendar – the NCAA Tournament – is upon us and it happens to coincide with the busiest part of the Myrtle Beach golf season. So if you are in town, where are the best places to watch the Big Dance and monitor your progress in the office pool?

The Grand Strand is home to a lot of outstanding sports bars, including Buffalo Wild Wings in Carolina Forest and Wild Wing Café at Barefoot Landing, but here are five local establishments where we would recommend watching the NCAA Tournament.

1.    Overtime Sports Café has atmosphere in abundance. With 150 TVs, a 12-foot video wall, and four 10-foot wide projection screens, there is no better place to watch a game.

2.    Given that it’s the only sports bar at Broadway at the Beach, the heart of the area’s party scene, Broadway Louie’s has to be near the top of the list. Throw in a 25-foot jumbo screen, four big screens and 35 smaller screens, and Broadway Louie’s is a great place to enjoy the Madness of March.

3.    Oscar’s gives Overtime a run for its money as the best sports bar in North Myrtle Beach. The wings are among the area’s best and the mood is always festive.  

4.    Tucked away in Carolina Forest, just a Dustin Johnson drive from Legends and Myrtle Beach National, Handley’s Pub & Grub is worth seeking out. The food is good, booths are equipped with televisions and the beer selection is among the best. Throw in an outdoor patio and great “scenery” and Handley’s has earned its reputation as a local’s favorite.

5.    Pine Lakes Tavern, which occupies the space Droopy’s used to call home, is a relative newcomer to the scene but is well worth checking out. An elevated bar framed by a wall of televisions makes it a sports fans paradise.
