The traditional Easter meal is a big part of the holiday celebration, but folks who are vacationing don't have the option of gathering at grandma's house for a family feast. Fortunately for those visiting the Grand Strand, the area offers the next best thing with lots of outstanding Myrtle Beach restaurants providing Easter feasts in formal and casual environments.
Whether you are looking for a fine-dining experience to celebrate the special day, or a more festive atmosphere with family and friends, you are sure to find the right place to enjoy an Easter feast within a short drive of Long Bay Resort. Here is a list of 10 restaurants and entertainment venues offering all the classic Easter dishes along with some local favorites:
- Brentwood House: This historic home in Little River puts out an impressive spread for Easter, including a lineup heavy on local seafood. The unique layout provides private dining rooms as well as a new outdoor patio deck for enjoying the spring weather.
- Chestnut Hill: This Restaurant Row establishment is famous for its Sunday brunches, and the Easter buffet is one of the best on the Grand Strand. Slow-roasted prime rib, smoked oysters, eggs benedict and unbelievably good desserts highlight the lineup.
- Hard Rock Cafe: This rock 'n roll-themed restaurant serves a big breakfast of traditional American classics and offers a special guest appearance. Kids can have their pictures taken with Buttons the Bunny and receive special holiday treats.
- House of Blues: This Barefoot Landing restaurant/music venue combines the two to create an inspirational experience with its weekly Sunday Gospel Brunch, and the Easter edition is even bigger and better. Do something good for your body and spirit with a traditional Southern spread and the soulful sounds of a live gospel choir.
- Martin's: Guests at Long Bay Resort don't have to leave the property to enjoy a delicious Easter breakfast buffet. A carving station and make-your-own omelet station are among the choices you can find just steps from your room.
- Original Benjamin's Calabash Buffet: You can have eggs and bacon anytime and anywhere. But since you are spending this Easter in Myrtle Beach, why not go for seafood? Original Benjamin's can satisfy all taste buds with a buffet filled with 170 items, including a carving station for a more traditional Easter meal.
- Ripley's Aquarium: No one has fresher seafood than this place (wink, wink) but there's no need to dip into the tanks this Easter. The Broadway at the Beach attraction is hosting a special Easter breakfast on Saturday, March 26, which features a visit from the Easter Bunny and Sharky to make the event extra special for the kids.
- Salt Water Creek Cafe: This “Easter Feaster” spread is worth the drive to Murrells Inlet to experience the holiday in true Lowcountry style. In addition to local seafood dishes, Salt Water Creek will feature baked ham and turkey, oyster dressing, mac-n-cheese and lots of tasty comfort foods.
- Thompson Farm: Located in nearby Conway, this working farm hosts an all-day Easter party on Saturday, March 12. Enjoy a classic country brunch and join the kids in an Easter egg hunt and other fun activities, including a visit from the Easter Bunny.
- Tupelo Honey Cafe: This new Market Common restaurant has quickly become a popular choice among the Myrtle Beach foodie community. Enjoy a brunch of Southern staples with a creative twist while getting a meet and greet with the Easter Bunny himself.
After a filling Easter feast, head back to your room at Long Bay Resort, Myrtle Beach for a nice post-meal nap, or head to the beach and pools to soak up some sun and fun. We look forward to you and your family celebrating the holiday with us.
