It's hard to swing a cat head biscuit on the Grand Strand without hitting a breakfast restaurant. With millions of visitors each year and more than 100 golf courses, breakfast joints are par for the course in the Myrtle Beach area. Unfortunately, quantity doesn't always equal quality, but there are at least 10 great places to start your day.
Most restaurants feature the same traditional Southern breakfast menu of eggs and meat, pancakes and hashbrowns - you know the morning drill. But it's how those standards are executed and the service and atmosphere that set the great ones apart from the good, and there are plenty of the former to keep you filled up on morning fuel during your stay.
Many have been in business for decades, like our chart-topper Mammy's Kitchen, currently celebrating its 60th year in business. This mom-and-pop shop is a mainstay on the Myrtle Beach breakfast scene. In addition to the excellent and affordable breakfast bar, the family atmosphere keeps generations of vacationers back year after year.
The same is true at more upscale institutions such as the Sea Captain's House, where the breakfasts are made to order and feature some less traditional morning fare. Shrimp over creamy grits and other seafood offerings make for an original morning lineup, but this popular spot also serves all the breakfast classics.
And if you feel like sleeping in, it's hard to beat brunch at some of Myrtle Beach's hottest spots before spending a long day on the links or beach.
