Oceanfront Dining in Myrtle Beach
Many of the guests of Monterey Bay Suites want the full coastal experience during their stay in Myrtle Beach. They lie on the beach during the day and take long walks at night, but one of the biggest beach vacation staples is oceanfront dining. There are plenty of restaurants on the Grand Strand that offer beautiful views of the Atlantic Ocean. Below you’ll find a list of favorites among locals and tourists alike.
On Property Dining -
Our guests have the opportunity of enjoying their breakfast with a stunning view, as Monterey Bay Suites is one of the few oceanfront hotels with free breakfast. Our complimentary deluxe hot breakfast includes fan favorites such as eggs, biscuits & gravy, hash browns, sausage, ham, grits, pancakes, waffles, cereal, oatmeal pastries and much more. Our oceanfront breakfast area is open from 7am – 10am.
Sea Captain’s House –
The Sea Captain’s House has been a Myrtle Beach mainstay for decades. Originally built as a beach cottage in the 30’s, the building has since been turned into a gorgeous oceanfront restaurant, which serves thousands of happy customers year after year. Sea Captain’s House serves a wonderful breakfast but is well known for its amazing lunch and dinner seafood meals like the stuffed flounder and southern salmon cordon blue. They do not take reservation, but they have a bar and a beautiful oceanfront lawn to enjoy while you wait for a table to be ready.
When it’s time to fiesta oceanfront, take the short drive down Ocean Blvd and visit Banditos Restaurant & Cantina. This Mexican restaurant located on the boardwalk also has great ocean views from both their inside and outside seating areas. Offering all of the typical Mexican favorites like tacos, burritos, fajitas, empanadas, chimichangas & more, there will certainly be something for everyone on this menu. The oceanfront bar area is the perfect place to enjoy a margarita or other frosty beverage after the meal and just relax and enjoy the ocean. It can get rather busy in peak season so be sure to make a reservation.
Pier 14 Restaurant & Lounge
Since 1986 Pier 14 has been focused on oceanfront dining. As one of the few things left somewhat intact after Hurricane Hugo in in 1989, Pier 14 has remained a favorite among Myrtle Beach vacationers. Out of all of the oceanfront dining options in town, this one has one of the most magnificent views of the beach and the ocean. Pier 14 serves both lunch and dinner. While they specialize in fresh seafood dishes, their steak, chicken and pasta dishes are still loved by many. There is nothing quite like enjoying a fantastic meal while the ocean crashes below. Pier 14 does not take reservations, but wait times seem extra short when you can enjoy the pier in the meantime.
Oceanfront Bar & Grill
Living up to its name, Oceanfront Bar & Grill offers one of the largest outdoor oceanfront seating areas. Located right on the boardwalk, this family owned restaurant is perfect for enjoying a great breeze, great views and great service. Serving basic bar food as well as some southern specialties, Oceanfront Bar & Grill has something on the menu for everyone. They also feature live music regularly making this once of the best oceanfront restaurants in terms of entertainment. When you visit the boardwalk during your stay at Monterey Bay Suites, be sure to stop in for a bite or a beverage at Oceanfront Bar & Grill.
While Murrells Inlet isn’t as close as the Boardwalk, it is probably one of the most highly regarded waterfront dining options in the Grand Strand. Many people vacationing in Myrtle Beach will make a night out of visiting the Murrells Inlet marshwalk and enjoying a great meal at one of the many waterfront restaurants there. Restaurants like Drunken Jacks, Creek Ratz, Dead Dog Saloon, Capt. Daves Dockside, and Bovine’s Wood Fired Specialties always seem to top the lists of the best food and best views in the area.
