Where to Eat Thanksgiving Dinner in Myrtle Beach

Whether you call it dinner or supper, the main meal on Thanksgiving Day is a pretty big deal to most Americans. Yet that doesn’t stop plenty of people from taking a trip to the beach over the long Thanksgiving weekend—and who can blame them? It’s a great time to visit Myrtle Beach. The weather has cooled, but it usually isn’t actually “cold,” and most of the big area attractions are still open for business, but without the crazy summer crowds. 

But just because you want to get out of town for Thanksgiving doesn’t mean you don’t want some turkey. Never fear! Plenty of Myrtle Beach restaurants are open for business and serving up a delicious Thanksgiving supper. Here are a few that have opened their doors to hungry holiday-goers in years past:

Greg Norman’s Australian Grille 

Greg Normans serves up “The Upper Crust of Down Under Dining,” a fresh take on Australian food. It’s in a gorgeous location on the Intracoastal Waterway at Barefoot Landing in North Myrtle Beach and serves a traditional Thanksgiving menu with turkey, roasted garlic mashed potatoes, dressing and cranberry sauce.

Gulfstream Café

Several Murrells Inlet restaurants serve up a Thanksgiving meal, including the Gulfstream Café. Guests are encouraged to make a reservation, as the Gulfstream has served its large plate of Thanksgiving dinner and delicious pies for more than a decade, and it’s become very popular over the years. 

The Sea Captain’s House

The Sea Captain’s House is located right next door to The Caribbean Resort, and it’s also one of the most popular restaurants in Myrtle Beach among both locals and visitors. Reservations are not accepted, so plan to wait for a table—but also plan for it to be worthwhile. 

Carolina Roadhouse

You can choose from a regular menu or a traditional Thanksgiving dinner at Carolina Roadhouse, but we recommend the traditional platter. The pecan-crusted sweet potato casserole alone is worth the stop. Reservations are accepted for Thanksgiving day.

Sticky Fingers 

Many of the restaurants open on Thanksgiving day are buffets, including Sticky Fingers. The regular menu is also served, and reservations are highly recommended. 

Hard Rock Café

This Broadway at the Beach staple hosts a Thanksgiving feast with carved turkey, stuffing, potatoes, string bean casserole and more, buffet-style. Reservations are recommended.
