The Myrtle Beach area offers many dining choices to vacationers at North Beach Plantation. With so much competition already out there, a new seafood restaurant has to offer something out of the ordinary to create a buzz in the local marketplace – and the Hook & Barrel restaurant has done just that.

Hook & Barrel strives toward the modern and worthy goal of offering a fine-dining experience that does not come at the expense of the environment. The North Kings Highway restaurant uses only responsibly sourced and sustainably produced food products, choosing local fishers and growers whenever possible, and its equipment and presentation are all at the highest standard of eco-friendliness. Hook & Barrel’s commitment to its “green” philosophy extends to re-using the trees that were cut down on the property as construction materials inside the restaurant and opting to serve its meals on unbreakable dinnerware rather than on finer china.

Knowing that your dining experience is having the smallest possible environmental impact is something you can feel really good about. But you’ll feel even better when you taste the food! Hook & Barrel’s seafood meals are not only environmentally friendly, but they are also fresh and deliciously prepared.

From the fresh oyster stew prepared before your eyes at the steamer bar, to the flatbreads and appetizers too tempting to pass up, to the melt-in-your-mouth scallop entrée and the create-your-own fish-of-the-day meal, Hook & Barrel will delight your taste buds from beginning to end.

Speaking of the end of the meal, don’t forget to leave room for dessert! Hook & Barrel is owned and operated by Heidi Vukov, who also owns the very popular Croissants Bistro & Bakery next door. Croissants provides the bread products used by Hook & Barrel, as well as a sweet dessert selection. Try the banana profiteroles, which feature brûléed bananas in a pastry with hot chocolate ganache and vanilla bean ice cream. Yum!

Hook & Barrel opened in the spring of 2016 and became an immediate hit with locals and visitors alike. Its service is highly rated, and its beachy décor is comfortable and attractive.
