Best Brunch Restaurants in Myrtle Beach

The great thing about brunch is that you can have sweet or savory dishes - or both!
The great thing about brunch is that you can have sweet or savory dishes - or both!

Some people say breakfast is the most important meal of the day. Who knows if they’re right, but the award for most fun meal of the day or week should probably go to brunch. First of all, it’s the only time that liquor is socially-acceptable that early in the day (Bloody Mary). Second of all, when else do you get to eat things like Bananas Foster French Toast and Crab and Brie Quiches?

And like most things culinary, the Grand Strand has a nice variety of brunch spots for you to check out. Here’s a handful of the ones that we think stand a little taller than the rest.

Croissants Bistro & Bakery

Croissants Bistro & Bakery 3751 Robert M. Grissom Parkway , Myrtle Beach , SC 29577

Easily one of the most popular brunch spots in town, this quaint bistro with outdoor seating serves an extensive menu of Southern-inspired dishes with a European flair from 10am – 2pm on Sundays. Check out favorites like their Crab Cake Benedict, Thompson Farm Frittata, Croque Madame, Banana Nutella Crepes, or the Bananas Foster French Toast. (Most dishes are in the $8 - $12 range). And if you like a Bloody Mary with your mid-morning meal, stop by the build-your-own bar and load up on any number of condiments. One of the best parts about brunch here is that, as a bakery, all of the bread is baked in-house – something to keep in mind while ordering. And on the way out, stop by the cake and pastry case and pick up a little something for later. You’ll be glad you did!

Sea Captain’s House

Sea Captains House 3002 N. Ocean Blvd, Myrtle Beach , SC 29577

Known among locals and visitors as one of Myrtle Beach’s best seafood restaurants, this beachfront eatery serves up a brunch menu full of eggs, omelets, pancakes, and waffles. If you’re lucky, you’ll get a table with a clear view of the waves where you can enjoy popular items like the Brie and Bacon Omelet, Pecan Waffles, or homemade Biscuits and Gravy.

House of Blues

House of Blues 4640 Highway 17 S., North Myrtle Beach, SC 29582

For a unique meal that you won’t soon forget, reserve your table now for House of Blues’ Sunday feast, complete with an all-you-can-eat buffet (featuring house-favorite chicken and waffles), carving stations, nap-inducing desserts, and, of course, some of the area’s most talented musicians belting out traditional and contemporary Gospel tracks. Seating takes place from 9am – 2pm, and make sure to wear your Sunday best – you might be called onstage to participate in a little song and dance. Adults are $29, ages 7 - 12 $14.50, and kids under 6 are free.

Chestnut Hill: The Restaurant

Chestnut Hill 9922 North Kings Highway, Myrtle Beach, SC 29572

The all-you-can-eat brunch spread at this Restaurant Row eatery is sure to please foodies and choosies alike. The selection includes traditional fare like French Toast, Eggs Benedict, and Shrimp and Grits; cold items and salads ranging from Poached Salmon and Oysters on the Half Shell to Waldorf Salad and Fresh Seasonal Fruit; entrees and hot items like Southern Fried Chicken, Roasted Prime Beef Au Jus, Baked Virginia Ham, and a Seafood Medley; and a Dessert list that includes Fresh-Baked Cookies, Cakes, Cheesecakes, Pies, Fruit Cobbler, and more. Sunday 10am – 1:30pm, $22.95 for adults, $10.95 for kids, $19.95 ages 11 - 16.

Gulfstream Cafe

Gulfstream Cafe 1536 South Waccamaw Drive, Garden City, SC 29576

The breathtaking views of the inlet and adjacent-marina are just one reason to head down to this Garden City restaurant on Sundays. Another good reason is their brunch buffet ($12.95 for adults, $5.95 for kids), complete with all of the standards – eggs, grits, biscuits and gravy, French toast – as well as some of the best hush puppies in town.

Gordon Biersch

Gordon Biersch 3060 Howard Avenue, Myrtle Beach, SC 29577

If what you want with your brunch is a cold pint of fresh-brewed craft beer, head out to this Market Common gastropub on Saturdays and Sundays from 11am – 3pm. But no worries if beer is not your thing – GB has plenty of food items to brag about. Popular dishes include the Southwest Breakfast Burrito, Creole Omelet, and Three-Egg Sausage Scrambler, each served with breakfast potatoes and fresh fruit. As with most busy spots, it’s best to get there sooner than later just in case they run out of what you had your heart set on, which, as a bustling restaurant, they sometimes do.

Crady’s Eclectic Cuisine on Main

Crady's Eclectic Cuisine 332 Main Street, Conway, SC 29526

Some people refer to Crady’s as one of the area’s best-kept secrets, so now that you’re in the know, be sure to reserve a table before making the trip to Downtown Conway. Brunch is definitely one of the specialties at this quaint little bistro, and must-have items include the Candied Pork Belly & Watermelon Salad, Mustard Fried Pork Tenderloin with black pepper gravy over stone-ground grits, and the Crab & Brie Quiche, which is made fresh daily. And after you’ve filled up on whatever deliciousness you decided to order, take a stroll through the streets of this historic Southern river town. Sunday 11am – 3pm, Salads are $6 - $11, entrees are $10 - $20.

Salt Water Creek Cafe
