Explore the Flavors of Myrtle Beach's Best Restaurants

Out of all the restaurants in a city, 10Best narrows the options to those places with the most appeal and the best reputations. We offer carefully vetted selections to let you explore Myrtle Beach dining on your own. If time is really tight, though, and you don't have the leisure to look through all our offerings, we present our Myrtle Beach Best Restaurants list. Here, we distill the best businesses down to a special selection of ten. These places promise a stellar experience and a taste of the city that you just can't miss. From Frank's Restaurant / Frank's Outback in Pawleys Island up to Sea Blue Restaurant in North Myrtle Beach and all points in between, hungry diners can't go wrong by visiting these cream-of-the-crop eateries. Whether it's seafood at the world-famous Sea Captain's House or aged prime beef at New York Prime, you and your taste buds will be happy at the end of each meal. Of course, there's more than just food on the menu at some of our featured selections. Collector's Cafe serves as an art museum for local and regional artists who display and sell their wares on the coffee house walls. At Gulfstream Cafe in nearby Garden City Beach, the art work is left up to Mother Nature, who paints a brilliant sunset nightly that can be seen from the back porch that overlooks scenic salt marshes and fishing boats pulling into Murrells Inlet to unload their fresh catches of the day. These are just a small sampling of the variety of dining options available in the Myrtle Beach area. Make a point to check out all the flavors of the Grand Strand.
