Enjoying a meal at a restaurant with a waterfront view is one of the great joys of vacationing on the Carolina coastline. Of all the thousands (yes, thousands) of dining options along the Grand Strand, a limited number offers a waterfront setting, but those that do treat their guests to something quite special. You might consider lunch or brunch outside overlooking the ocean on one of our area piers, or an early dinner inside in air-conditioned comfort with the big blue Atlantic Ocean as your backdrop. Those seeking a waterfront meal may also choose locations along the Intracoastal Waterway and the creeks, inlets and marshes of the Lowcountry. From sandwiches and picnic fare under an Oceanside umbrella, to a special fine-dining experience in an elegant setting, seeking out waterfront dining is not impossible. We recommend going early while there’s still sunlight to enhance the stunning view, and here are a few oceanfront restaurants in Myrtle Beach to get you started.
