Restaurants in North Myrtle Beach

Vacation can be a chance to be adventurous and expand your palate or reconnect with comfort foods you haven’t tried in forever. A trip to North Myrtle Beach offers both these choices and everything in between. Foodies love exploring locally-owned restaurants that cook seafood using secrets passed down for generations and places that put spicy modern twists on traditional American favorites. When you’re ready to wash it all down, wine connoisseurs venture out to our vineyards, beer lovers grab a pint of craft beer while others visit our distilleries to taste specialty spirits. A trip to NMB means you’re going to leave with a very pleased palate.


Shrimp cooked Calabash-style served with a side of hush puppies, crab legs with a dish of warm melted butter, or a steam kettle with all your favorites inside, NMB’s seafood restaurants are as authentic as it gets. With the Atlantic in front of us and waterways winding their way inland we’ve always been surrounded by a seafood smorgasbord. Our craft chefs have experimented with different ways to cook and season the food for hundreds of years, creating a southern style you won’t taste anywhere else. Today’s generation carries on that tradition of honoring the past and creating for the future.

Waterfront Dining

Eating on the waterfront is about more than a great view, it’s about the little things you barely notice but miss when they’re not there. You hear the waves crash ashore as you sip on a drink. Boats pull up to dockside restaurants as happy but hungry people take a break from boating. It’s the ripples in the water as a family of ducks swims by.

The waterfront restaurants all around NMB bring you to the edge of nature. Conversations with friends will often be interrupted as you point out an exotic bird, jumping fish, or dig in on some of the best food you’ve shared in a long time.

Wineries & Vineyards & Distilleries

Fruit of the vine from our region is unlike anything else. Our climate is conducive to the sweet and colorful wines produced by the craftsmen and women who work year-round to bring you wines you likely won’t find at the stores back home. You can schedule a tasting, listen to live music, and sample the wines as you gaze out over the serene fields. If spirits are more your thing, you can check out the local distilleries and try them out at an expansive tasting room.

Bars, Pubs, & Breweries 

Craft beers brewed on-site, cabana bars overlooking the ocean, and sports bars lined with TVs to catch the big games. NMB is replete with places to enjoy a cold one with friends. What you sip on one day could be gone the next since many offer seasonal creations and are always changing the taps.

Breakfast, Brunch, & Pancakes

A stack of pancakes overstuffed with fruit and served with a side of southern-style grits is a great way to start your day before hitting the links or going paddleboarding. Sometimes we don’t have time to make our breakfast faves at home. But an NMB vacation means you have plenty of opportunities to relax over coffee and find anything from cinnamon french toast to pigs in a blanket.

Sweet Treats

Ice cream made on-site or frozen custard flavors you’ve never dreamed of are just some of the sweetest things you’ll find in NMB. From a quick cone to cool off, a banana split to split with a friend, or homemade fudge and candy, your sweet tooth will be satisfied.

On The Go & To Your Door

Sometimes it's nice to stay in. Many places let you order online and pick up dinner on your way back to your accommodations. Others will bring it to you with curbside service while many will deliver it to your door.

From pancakes to mimosas and everything in between, find the best breakfast options.
