Here’s what to eat, where to shop, and what to do on your next Myrtle Beach getaway.

Myrtle Beach Coastline from Drone

Eat Here

Whether it’s a destination dinner or a pit stop, you’ll leave these places happy.

Hook and Barrel

Local seafood, superb wine, awesome happy hour, and fantastic brunch. You’ll find amazing service and food that’s out of this world. Daily happy hour (4-6 p.m.) includes bloody mary oyster shooters, peel and eat shrimp, $4 craft beer, and more.

Crave Italian Oven and Bar

Modern cool melds with an old-world classic here for wood-fired pizza and creative cocktails. This upscale experience is perfect for date night or cocktails after a tough week. The Napoletana pizza is terrific, as is the center-cut filet mignon.

Sea Captain's House

Find your traditional seafood favorites in a converted cottage with an ocean view. They feature fresh food and top-notch staff to ensure a great experience. They’re famous for she-crab soup, but be sure to leave room for hummingbird pie.

Strong Waters Craft Cocktails & Kitchen

It’s a laid-back, prohibition-style pub that will surprise you in all the right ways. They’re every bit as good as their stellar reviews, and you’ll feel welcomed right away. Order a Dogfish Head 90 Min IPA or can of 5 Coast Kolsch while you’re there.

RipTydz Oceanfront Grille & Rooftop Bar

It’s the place to be, with a patio and rooftop bar with a beach view, and an extensive menu. Try the Million Dollar View Mason Jar for a sweet and fruity Schnapps and Vodka treat. The Riptydz Rush rocktail is a tropical escape in a glass.
