The Myrtle Beach area is literally swimming in seafood, with local waters producing some of the best hauls of fish, shrimp, crab and oysters. The 60-mile stretch of coastline that makes up the Grand Strand includes two of the best fishing ports on the East Coast. From Murrells Inlet (the self-titled Seafood Capital of S.C.) to Calabash, N.C. (the self-titled Seafood Capital of the World), the Myrtle Beach area is surrounded by lots of fresh catches - and lots of places to enjoy them. The ready availability means plenty of options for seafood-lovers, a difficult list to trim down to 10.Whether you're looking for an all-you-can-eat buffet or a hole-in-the-wall oyster bar, you're sure to find a perfect fit for your taste buds. For a romantic dinner with a view to match, try the historic Sea Captain's House, which is celebrating its 60th summer on the Strand. Mega-seafood buffets like Captain George's Seafood Restaurant are abundant in Myrtle Beach. There's also the coziness of a small oyster shack, like you will find at Rockerfeller's and Bimini's Oyster Bar.Of course, some prefer to go straight to the source, and Calabash and Murrells Inlet have a broad range of seafood restaurants that take their fresh catches straight from the boat to your table. The Murrells Inlet Marsh Walk provides a dozen dining options in a short stretch down the waterfont and Calabash has a small district of seafood establishments that make it impossible to go wrong.
