Delicious, fresh seafood meals are one of the delights of a seaside vacation. When it comes to satisfying their seafood craving, guests at North Beach Plantation can suit nearly any taste.

If you’re feeling more adventurous, there are restaurants of every description enticing you into the town of Myrtle Beach. Making a selection from among so many delectable options can be difficult, but if you’re looking for the best oysters in town, here is a short list to make the decision a little easier!

Mrs. Fish Seafood Grill is a local favorite, and for good reason. This is a family owned and operated restaurant with a simple, no-nonsense approach. They want to give you a delicious meal at a reasonable price, and that’s exactly what they do. Amid the casual and friendly atmosphere, they serve fresh seafood — much of it locally sourced — in a wide variety of tasty preparations, which patrons can eat in the restaurant or order as carry-out.

Dirty Don’s Oyster Bar & Grill offers a casual, “Key West”-style dining experience at two Myrtle Beach locations, with indoor and outdoor dining available and a happy hour held every weekday from 4-6 p.m. In addition to their oysters, Dirty Don’s features their “nearly famous” hot wings, along with burgers and steaks. Happy hour deals include 50-cent shrimp and reduced prices on wings, appetizers and drinks.

The Noizy Oyster is a newcomer to the Myrtle Beach scene, but it’s already proving itself with some unique and delicious menu items. The raw bar includes both local and boutique oysters, and the oyster sampler plate is served with five original house sauces to top the tasty treats off. Their other house specialties are just as tempting, including dishes like crab cakes, po’boy sandwiches and steam pots.

Mr. Fish Seafood Restaurant is a gourmet seafood dining experience with some uncommon touches. The menu offers a variety of quality sushi appetizers and rolls, which can be paired with one of their sake choices. Entrees range from classics like seafood Alfredo or steamed Prince Edward Island mussels to the unusual but delicious seafood stir-fry. Mr. Fish also offers a selection of meals that can be prepared gluten-free.

Bimini’s Oyster Bar & Seafood Café is a casual spot that pairs fresh Atlantic seafood with the flavor and feel of the islands. Diners can choose between having their oysters served on the half shell or having them roasted, a house specialty. Bimini’s also offers island-style fare like coconut shrimp and seafood kabobs, as well as more American choices like grilled fish dishes, burgers and fish sandwiches.

After enjoying your delicious meal, you can return home to North Beach Plantation and take a stroll on the beach or by the fountain, or just relax in the comfort of your first-class accommodations.
