Myrtle Beach Area Restaurants Go the Extra Mile for Groups

The Myrtle Beach area caters to groups. From family reunions and vacations to golf groups and business conventions, groups of all sizes celebrating all kinds of events come to Myrtle Beach for the fun, the sun and special functions. Going out on the town is part of the experience, but finding a table for 10, 20 event 50 can be a crap shoot. The best restaurants may not have the seating capacity or the staffing to accommodate your group, and any place that's empty enough to do so easily might not be your best choice of eateries.

Large parties visiting Myrtle Beach have plenty of options for lunch and dinner, including casual and fine dining. For formal affairs, you're in luck. Many of Myrtle Beach's most upscale restaurants are housed in former beach cottages with additional rooms and space. The famed Sea Captain's House, formerly a small family beach guest house, features an oceanfront room that can accommodate large parties and special events.

For a less formal affair, and for large parties that love "large parties," few places in town know how to cut loose like Jimmy Buffett's Margaritaville. This Broadway at the Beach hot spot can accommodate big groups both indoors and outdoors. Dead Dog Saloon and Angelo's. Come one, come all to these 10 group-friendly locations.
