Dining in the Myrtle Beach Area? An Ocean — And a World — Of Options Awaits

When foodies go on vacation, their destinations are judged not only by the lineup of activities and attractions in the area, but also by the menu of culinary options available nearby. And in the Myrtle Beach area, where more than 2,000 eateries can be found in and around town, food lovers can easily track down nearly any cuisine and/or dish they may be craving.


As a result, whether they’re looking for homegrown cuisine or exotic flavors from around the world, food-loving visitors to the Grand Strand are in for a real culinary treat. Consider the flavorful offerings highlighted below — from restaurants serving up tasty local signature dishes to eateries cooking up delicious entrees hailing from culinary hotspots all over the globe.

Coastal Options

Of course, with the Atlantic Ocean in its backyard, it should come as no surprise that the Myrtle Beach area is best known for its fresh-caught seafood. And with a recent move toward “Carolina Coastal Cuisine,” many of the area’s chefs are using locally sourced ingredients to put a modern twist on Lowcountry staples.


Consider these highlights from among the local eateries serving up Carolina Coastal dishes:

Aspen Grille

Found less than 2 miles north of Caribbean Resort & Villas on North Kings Highway, Aspen Grille serves up USDA prime steaks, fresh-caught seafood, chops and poultry dishes, all handcrafted using ingredients from local lands and waters. An extensive list of wines and craft cocktails is also available for guests to choose from.

The Cypress Room

Located on North Ocean Boulevard about 2.5 miles north of Caribbean Resort & Villas, The Cypress Room specializes in French-inspired New American cuisine, all prepared using the finest and freshest ingredients. Some of the Lowcountry favorites served up here include jumbo lump crab cakes, she crab soup and crispy fried oysters.

Hook & Barrel

Located about 4.5 miles north of Caribbean Resort & Villas on North Kings Highway, Hook & Barrel puts a focus on using fresh, flavorful ingredients, all with an eye toward environmental sustainability. Fresh-caught seafood dishes such as smoked shrimp and grits and pan-seared scallops are the main attraction here, but landlubbers can also find meats like filet mignon, roasted chicken and braised short ribs on the menu.


Flavors From Around the World

In a world-class destination like Myrtle Beach, flavors from around the world can be found with ease — and with no need for a passport. From Italian and Latin American to Thai, Jamaican, German, Irish, Greek and lots more, top dishes from around the world are all available within a short drive.

Consider these highlights from among the area’s international eatery offerings:

  • Rioz Brazilian Steakhouse — Located just off 29th Avenue North (across from Broadway at the Beach) about 1.5 miles inland from Caribbean Resort & Villas, Rioz Brazilian Steakhouse specializes in Brazilian-style meats. More than 15 different cuts of beef, pork, lamb and poultry are slowly cooked over a bed of wood charcoal, then sliced for guests tableside by Rioz’s Gauchos (waiters).


  • Cafe Old Vienna — Found just over a mile south of Caribbean Resort & Villas on North Kings Highway, Cafe Old Vienna has been serving up traditional German soul food in an authentic German-Austrian alpine lodge for more than a quarter-century.
