There’s nothing like enjoying the flavors of Myrtle Beach while watching the Sandpipers race along the shoreline, or listening to the waves lap the sand. Here are three favorite places to eat and enjoy waterfront views:
The South End: The Gulfstream Cafe
Marlin Quay Marina is a short little pit stop for boaters in Garden City, but The Gulfstream Cafe is a local favorite. Not only does it have a beautiful third-floor deck with expansive views, both levels of dining rooms feature floor to ceiling windows to take in the sunset. We recommend the surf and turf or any special on the menu. The bar is fully stocked and knowledgeable mixologists will provide you with your favorite cocktails, wine or beer. This is an especially popular destination during the holidays, so book your reservation in advance if you’ll be in the area near Christmas or New Years Eve.
Heart of Myrtle Beach: Sea Captain’s House
The Sea Captain’s House is a mainstay of Myrtle Beach. Located on Ocean Blvd. in the heart of Myrtle Beach, this restaurant has been open for over 50 years and is a local favorite. Don’t let the quaint exterior full you. Once you walk in, you’ll have a great oceanfront view. As for the food, they have menus for breakfast, lunch and dinner. But don’t miss the She Crab Soup or crab cakes. They’re among the best at the beach.
The North End: Filet’s on the Water
Filet’s on the Water is a more modern seafood joint located on the Intracoastal Waterway next to the Little River Swing Bridge. Its views are beautiful and the food is equally so. Start with the mussels or sushi and, of course, get a signature filet. They also have an amazing dessert martini menu that is a must-try.
No matter where you dine in Myrtle Beach, you’re sure to not be far from the water, but these three places are our favorite—from traditional to modern, from the inlet to the ocean—for dining on the water without having to be outside.
