We put together our Must Eat Myrtle Beach list of the best of the best restaurants in the area. Check it out!
Dick’s Last Resort
4700 Hwy 17 S | (843) 272-7794
This is definitely a place you’ll find tourists, but if you’ve never been it’s a must eat! Here you’ll get rude servers (it’s part of the gimmick), funky hats that will make you laugh, delicious food and cocktails. This is a family-friendly restaurant located in Barefoot Landing, however, we’d say for an even more amusing experience give this place a try when you’re with a group of adult friends.
4886 N Kings Hwy | (843) 272-1176
This Italian chophouse is also located at Barefoot Landing and trust us when we say, they will not disappoint. At Umberto’s the menu items are savory and endless. Choose from appetizers, entrees, and desserts like fried calamari, veal Umberto, lobster ravioli, steak scampi, and tiramisu. Though Barefoot Landing can be a bit crowded, Umberto’s offers a laidback and inviting atmosphere.
The Grumpy Monk
1317 Celebrity Cir | (843) 712-8020
The Grumpy Monk in Broadway at the Beach is a new local favorite, which also makes it a Myrtle Beach Must Eat! With tons of beer on tap, live music, and an eclectic menu, how could it not be? Their menu features pub grub favorites including their specialty Monk Turds (jalapenos stuffed with cream cheese, bacon, scallions, and lightly fried) and an extensive fresh sushi menu. This place is sure to be a good time for everyone in your vacation crew!

Another local favorite, Dagwood’s is a little sports pub with two locations (central and south end) with the same delicious menu, specials, and beer. Choose from Burgers & Baskets to out-of-this-world deli sandwiches like Rachel’s Reuben, Dagwood’s Dipper, or The Brooks Brother Jumbo Deli Sandwich.

Miyabi Japanese Restaurant
9732 N Kings Hwy | (843) 449-9294
4201 US-17 | (843) 651-4616
Miyabi not only has amazing menu options, but it’s also so much fun to experience! This family-friendly restaurant has two locations (north and south end) that are sure to have everyone in awe as the chefs' slice, dice, and show off their culinary skills right before your eyes. Choose from their hibachi menu or order from their sushi bar. They have some of the best sushi in town including some of our favorite rolls like the Sunset Strip, Mexican Roll, and Volcano Roll! If you decide to dine in for hibachi, it’s best to make reservations ahead of time.
10880 Ocean Hwy | (843) 979-2747
This cute little hide-away restaurant is located in the Hammock Shops Village in Pawleys Island, but it’s so worth the drive. They have some of the best burgers and fresh-cut Belgian fries in Myrtle Beach. You must try some of our favorites like the smothered bacon, melted mixed cheese, and buttermilk fries, the Hagley, or the Smokehouse burger. Yum!
