10 Family-Owned Restaurants to Try in Myrtle Beach
Most diners enjoy discovering little family-owned restaurants, and the Myrtle Beach area has tons of them! Check out this list of 10 family-owned restaurants to try while in Myrtle Beach:
Go here once, and it will likely become a place your heart and stomach often leads you. A few of our favorite dishes include Ravioli Rustici (sautéed with pancetta, onions, vodka, tomato sauce and cheese), Pasta al Forno (baked ziti with ground beef, peas, hard eggs and tomato sauce), Salmone al Pepeverde (grilled salmon with brandy/green peppercorn cream sauce), and Fettuccine Lizu where fresh noodles are sautéed with wild mushrooms, pancetta, roasted pignolis and brandy cream sauce. The pasta is house-made.
Get a true taste of Germany at Cafe Old Vienna! This authentic German-Austrian restaurant is a favorite among locals and visitors to Myrtle Beach. Try out a German beer while choosing between a myriad of schnitzels, wursts, gulasch, and other German and Austrian dishes.
Everything is extraordinarily delicious at this downtown Conway institution. Try one of the exquisite lunch salads or Vegetable Lasagna, or at dinner there are Ginger Scallops and Flat Iron Steak with blue cheese and chocolate demi-glace. This is definitely a place where you’ll want to save room for desserts like Two-Bite German Chocolate Toffee Crunch.
This is where you can get the best wings on the planet. They’re cooked so the skin is crispy, and the plump inside is moist and juicy. Flavors are spectacular, from the sweet and tangy House version to Garlic Parmesan, Texas Gold Barbecue, Jalapeno Teriyaki, Cajun and extra-spicy Kamikaze. They also have delicious beers on tap.
Heidi Vukov from Croissants Bistro & Bakery means business with the gourmet fare that this locally favorite restaurant serves. The breakfast and lunch menus here feature a cornucopia of unique recipes that have locals and vacationers flocking to this quaint eatery. If you're trying out Croissants for breakfast, consider the Oscar crepes made with beef tenderloin tips, crab meat, asparagus, and Hollandaise sauce or the Ham, Herb & Brie omelette. For lunch, fill up on the Not Your Mama's Meatloaf Sandwich, or the Crab Cake Sandwich with lettuce, tomato, and house remoulade served on a brioche bun.
Located at the Long Bay Resort, Martin's Restaurant is a hot spot for breakfast and dinner in Myrtle Beach. Dinner at Martin's Restaurant is truly delightful, as each dish is made "Specially For You." Before indulging in a delectable entree, try out an appetizers such as Eggplant Rolls (eggplant, proscuitto, and mozzarella, rolled up and then fried, served with homemade marinara sauce), Frog Legs, or the Escargot Crostini. As an entree, choose from a variety of meals made with veal, poultry, beef, shellfish, or fish. There are also vegetarian options available. Of course, you can't leave without trying Martin's table side Bananas Foster.
