North Myrtle Beach Seafood Restaurants

Fresh sea bass seared on the grill, grouper sautéed in spices that delight your taste buds, and oysters waiting to be shucked. If it can be pulled from the ocean it can be found in one of the seafood restaurants of North Myrtle Beach’s (NMB). 

Oceanfront Options

Which is louder: the sound of shucking oysters or waves crashing onshore? Find out for yourself at one of our oceanfront seafood restaurants. Fishtails Beach Bar is located at the Bay Watch Resort and serves up fried calamari, fresh tacos, and coconut shrimp along with cold drinks to wash it all down.

Located right on the boardwalk at Cherry Grove Pier, Boardwalk Beach Cafe serves up tasty eats and gorgeous views. From peel-and-eat shrimp seasoned with Old Bay to fried shark bites served with their signature tiger sauce, here visitors can get a taste of NMB.


While boats cruise by trolling for their own catch-of-the-day you can dine on succulent seafood next to the calm Intracoastal waterway that gently winds its way through NMB.

Greg Norman doesn’t just design golf courses (including the challenging course at NMB’s Barefoot Resort & Golf) he also has an amazing restaurant, Greg Norman Australian Grille. He brings Aussie flavor to the seafood scene with the lobster ravioli and broiled escargot. Nestled along the waterfront at Barefoot Landing, they also have an award-winning wine list. Barefoot Landing is also home to the legendary Lulu’s. Live music is a staple here, perfect to enjoy some crab claws and a bowl of Lulu’s Famous Seafood Gumbo.

Inside Doc Holidays Marina along the Intracoastal is Boardwalk Billy’s. Known for their sushi and raw bar, most evenings you’ll find live music from around six until ten. The Oyster Rock Waterfront Seafood serves up a beautiful view with creative takes on seafood. The Ragin’ Cajun Oysters are a favorite and a bowl of made-to-order Oyster Stew will have you telling friends about it for years to come.

Yes, that is a Giant Crab tipping its hat to you between his lighthouse and ship! And the crab isn’t the only giant thing in here. Inside you’ll choose from one of eight fun dining rooms to feast on a GIANT buffet stocked with steamed and raw favorites, stuffed scallops, and a carving station for the more red meat minded.

Clark’s Seafood & Chophouse sits on a serene marina, perfect for watching the boats go out or grabbing a bite after your ship’s come in. Start with bacon-wrapped scallops then move on to their Carolina Crab Cakes, your tastebuds will thank you.


It’s hard to go more than a block or two in NMB without coming across a restaurant specializing in seafood. We’re a laid-back beach community but take our signature cuisine seriously.

Unassuming on the outside but fun and tasty on the inside, Rockefellers Raw Bar has all your favorites. The Grouper Fingers come made to order, and their Golfers Special Steam Kettle is definitely up to par. 

Preston’s Seafood and Country Buffet is right by Barefoot Landing and has a huge variety of seafood. Feast away on a pile of peel and eat shrimp then dive into a platter of scallops, oysters, and stuffed crab.

Crab legs, oysters, and stuffed clams are just a few of the items awaiting you on the buffet at Captain George’s Seafood Restaurant. Close to Broadway at the Beach, toss in some she-crab soup and a couple of hush puppies and you’re ready for round one. Also serving up a smorgasbord of seafood is Captain Jack’s Seafood Buffet. Stuffed jumbo shrimp and deviled crab top the menu that will have you singing Under the Sea as you work your way through your meal.
