Dining out is one of the great joys of vacationing, and dining out in an ever-changing sea of seafood restaurants in Myrtle Beach is a treat that keeps visitors coming back for more. The Grand Strand boasts hundreds of great seafood establishments. Some are situated within beautiful, old, coastal cottages, or within large seafood buffet eateries, tiny fish shacks, and even at the Grand Strand’s fine dining establishments. From simple “Calabash”-styled seafood, to gourmet delicacies, visitors have their pick of fresh catches with a budget and style of cuisine that will please everyone. The famed Gulf Stream lies just off our coast, and fleets of fishing boats bring in Mahi-Mahi, flounder, grouper, shrimp, tuna, oysters and even blue crab; neighboring coastal states provide the rest of the bounty. You could enjoy fresh seafood at a different Grand Strand restaurant every day for three years, and still have not tried them all! So grab your shuckers and get shuckin’, the oysters won’t shuck themselves!
