Food Dude Grub Crawl: Restaurants at Barefoot Landing in North Myrtle Beach
The Food Dude has only one issue with taking a Grub Crawl around Barefoot Landing - false advertising.
You can't go barefoot at any of the 17 restaurants located at the popular entertainment complex in North Myrtle Beach, but that's the only bone I have to pick. The selection is right up the Food Dude's alley.
From seafood to chicken wings and from Southern cooking and hospitality to down-right rudeness, Barefoot Resort has a little something for everyone. Here's the Food Dude's top five recommendations for Barefoot:
This regional chain based out of Hilton Head Island has all things wings and more, mixing bar-food favorites with a festive atmosphere and cold draft beer. Hard to go wrong with that kind of recipe.
Wild Wing offers 34 different flavors of wings (take that, Baskin-Robbins), including hot (Chernobyl, Ragin' Cajun, Carolina Fireball), sweet (Honey Mustard, Island Jerk, Old Yeller) and unique (Crazy Daisy Asian BBQ, Flying Fajita, Ol' Smokey).
Wild Wing also offers salads, appetizers, flatbread pizzas and a traditional burgers and sandwiches, like a classic Sloppy Joe or the Holy Jalapeno Burger. Best of all, there's a variety of cold beers to wash it all down.
Modeled after a West Coast wharf where fresh seafood is unloaded and served directly to the customer, the Flying Fish literally lives up to its name.
Patrons are welcome to join the staff in the open kitchen and toss a fish through the air. Simply pick a fish from a bed of ice in the counter and make your best rugby throw.
But the best part is what the servers deliver to your table - excellent seafood and sushi dishes in a cool atmosphere. A dozen oysters and a cold beer on the patio deck overlooking the Intracoastal Waterway is the perfect place to chill out after a day of shopping.
Most people go to the HOB for live music, but they're missing out on one of the few themed eateries that also happens to serve excellent food.
Featuring Southern/Cajun favorites such as Memphis barbecue, Louisiana jambalaya and Gulf Coast seafood, HOB puts out a great spread as well as putting on excellent concerts.
Check out the Sunday Gospel Brunch for the best combination of food and music on the Grand Strand. If you're going to a concert, diners get priority early seating to the shows.
Umberto's has been serving excellent Italian food in the North Myrtle Beach area for decades, but the new restaurant at Barefoot Landing has brought the good food to the masses.
Featuring all the Italian classics, Umberto's also brings its own unique menu to the table. From the Veal Parmesean to the Chicken Umberto, you'll find perfectly prepared classics and creative signature dishes.
One of the things that makes Umberto's a great choice is the atmosphere. A friendly staff and relaxed environment make for a great time as much as a great meal.
Dick's Last Resort
This "anti-restaurant" is not for the weak of stomachs or sensibilities. Both will likely be offended by the spicy food and good-natured ribbing served up by the waiters and waitresses.
Unlike most places where you get bad service, Dick's is meant to be that way. Servers insult the customers, and it's supposed to be a back-and-forth exchange, not a spot to come get your feelings hurt. It's all about fun.
Unlike the slogan of "Bad food, lousy service, insultingly bad attititude," Dick's menu is filled with tasty steak, seafood and sandwich dishes. And the patio is a great place to hear live music and watch alligators in the nearby lake, and you can probably get away with kicking off your flip-flops.
