President George Washington passed through this town in 1791 during his tour of the Southern States and stopped to dine in nearby Little River. More than two centuries later and hungry visitors are discovering this diamond in the rough for restaurants and relaxation. Bordered by the Atlantic Ocean to the east, the Intracoastal Waterway to the west and the larger towns of Little River and North Myrtle Beach to the north and south, respectively, this small fishing village has managed to maintained an island-like seclusion and an old-school beach town identity that makes it a distinct community. That uniqueness is reflected in the restaurants of Cherry Grove Beach. From waterfront seafood shacks to some of the finest dining on the Grand Strand, Cherry Grove offers a wide range of choices for such a small area. Most come with an amazing view of the diverse landscape with spectacular vistas of the ocean, waterway, sunset and marinas. Enjoy the ocean breeze and view at 3500 North Ocean Grill or watch the sun set and ships roll in at Capt. Poo's Bar & Grill or Filet's on the Water. Visitors also can get a true taste of the close-knit community and some good country cooking at Duffy's or The Shack. Just tell them George sent you.
