One of the beauties of staying at Island Vista Resort is that while you are here, you really never have to leave our grounds. All the fun and entertainment you need is right here onsite. We even serve top-notch breakfast and dinner at The Cypress Room—and every meal comes with a perfect oceanfront view, framed by generous floor-to-ceiling windows!

Our Chef, Michael McKinnon, has created a standout menu, inspired by his many years in restaurant kitchens, beginning working in his father’s restaurant when he was 12 years old. Today, he uses that experience and his culinary degree to craft outstanding dishes inspired by classic French cuisine touched with a daub of new American cuisine. The results are so good you have to taste them to believe it.

Start out with breakfast, where you’ll find a mouth-watering array of southern specialties served up alongside your daybreak classics. One favorite is the sweet potato pancakes with maple pecan butter and your choice of bacon, sausage or ham. That’s a sweet start to your day!

The huevos rancheros with flour tortillas, avocado and sour cream is also popular for those who like breakfast on the spicy side. And there is also a wide array of choices for a la carte diners, as well as a children’s menu that comes with a choice of milk, juice or hot cocoa.

Diners who come for dinner find tasty options with a focus on the freshest seafood. Our blue fin she crab soup is touched with a kiss of aged sherry and a sprinkling of fresh chives. Our crispy fried oysters are set off with a roasted red pepper remoulade and wilted spinach. And you can also choose the perfect sauce—including béarnaise, peppercorn or parmesan—to perfectly complement your grilled or sautéed entrée centerpiece, whether you eat by land or by sea. And to accompany your expertly prepared dinner, we offer a full service bar.

So next time you visit Island Vista in Myrtle Beach, don’t worry about dinner. Just come visit the Cypress Room, we’ll serve up treats to delight your palate right alongside an enchanting ocean view.
