Dirty Don’s serves as much as a bar as a restaurant, but the fresh seafood and refreshing drinks are what keeps people coming back for more. Locally owned with two locations (one on 21st Avenue North in Myrtle Beach and one along the Myrtle Beach Boardwalk) this seafood shack has lots of followers, both locals and tourists, who can’t get enough of Dirty Don’s delicious eats and the weekend Oyster, Clam, and Mussel Roasts that take place each Saturday & Sunday from 1-3 p.m.!
Dirty Don’s Food
As the name indicates, the oyster is the center of the menu and universe at Dirty Don’s. You can get them steamed, blackened, fried, “Rockerfella” or just plain raw with a side of cocktail sauce and crackers.
But that’s not all that’s on the menu here. Dirty Don’s offers a variety of First Bites to share with your friends and family before digging into a main entree. These appetizers include the Davy Jones Lobster Bites, Shrimp Fritters, Carolina Crabcakes, Coconut Shrimp, “Nacho Mama’s Nachos”, Oyster Salsa, Dynamite Shrimp, Seafood Spinach Dip, and many other delectable options worth sharing.
Hungry visitors will order a First Bite as well as an entree like the Baskets (Surf & Turf, Fish & Chips, Fried Clam Strips, Fried Shrimp, Fried Oyster, Popcorn Shrimp, Fried Lobster, or the Thomas’ Seafood Sampler); a selection of Raw or Steamed Seafood, Dirty Don’s Dunkin’ Pot, Dirty Don’s Fish Fry, or the Hemmingway’s Land & Sea. There are also lighter options such as soups & salads to choose from as well.
There are plenty of choices for those who are looking for a sandwich to sink their teeth into. These include burgers, po’ boys, chicken sandwiches, steak sandwiches, crabcake sandwiches, cheesesteaks, and BBQ pork sandwiches. Each sandwich comes complete with fries or a side.
The House Specialties at Dirty Don’s include delicious Seafood Tacos, Seafood Pizza Pie, Shrimp & Sausage Pie, and the Key Largo Lobster Roll!
There is even a Mini Mates Menu offering a variety of choices for kids 12 and under.
Dirty Don’s Atmosphere
Dirty Don’s leans a little toward the bar side except for the regular lunch and dinner hours so the environment can be a bit festive for a quiet feast. But that’s why folks come to Dirty Don’s – to have a good time as well as a good meal. The outdoor patio is heavily populated during the $6 oyster roasts, held every Saturday and Sunday from 1 to 3 p.m. Come as you are.
