Appetizers in Myrtle Beach? Be Sure to Try These 10

Sometimes, the side dish becomes a show-stopper.


Appetizers aren’t only a warmup when it comes to dining in Myrtle Beach. Some appetizers are so good people come to order a few, a round of drinks, and enjoy time with family and friends. Appetizers are great for sharing or for times when a full-on dinner isn’t what you’re looking for.


Here are a few of our favorite appetizers on the Grand Strand.

Dubbed an experiment, it features fresh poke tuna served on seaweed salad and poke sauce. Pairs well with the chill vibe and out-of-this-world drink menu.

A pair of cathead buttermilk biscuits (named so because they’re as big as a cat’s head!) with blueberry jam and whipped butter. Proceeds benefit the Tupelo Honey Relieve & Development Funds for employees in need.

Chemist Cocktails

The award-winning soup at Sea Captains House gets its own rave reviews online. It’s rich, creamy, and the best on the Grand Strand – and you won’t find a better bowl in Charleston, the unofficial home of She Crab Soup. Sea Captains House is Caribbean Resort’s own traditional seafood favorite.

They’re breaded to order and served with ranch for a simple yet unforgettable bite. Oceanfront serves hearty portions in a spot perfect for family dinner, or lunch.

Sea Captains She Crab Soup

These lightly-battered grouper strips come with your choice of Bummz’s array of sauces. How can you beat quick service, delicious food, and an ocean view on The Grand Strand?

Made with lump crab meat, this opener is special because of the house-made remoulade. It’s the perfect starter for a superior dining experience in Aspen’s incredible ambiance.

Crab Cakes

Large farm-raised oysters from government inspected waters are all this place will serve. The staff at this high-end steakhouse can make the perfect entree recommendation, too.

It stands above the rest, with oysters in the shell, crab legs, mussels, cocktail shrimp, and lobster tail. A laid-back atmosphere and top-notch service make Hook & Barrel a must-visit on your trip.

What a stunning combination: Chicken, bacon, spinach, smoked gouda, and chipotle aioli. Riptydz has a wonderful outdoor space, perfect for good times overlooking the beach.

It packs the best flavors, with white queso, pico de gallo, sliced jalapenos, and fresh guacamole. You’re in for superlative service and awesome drinks in this nice pit stop on the boardwalk.
