Your Guide to Eating, Shopping, and Playing in North Myrtle Beach

If you’re headed to North Myrtle … a great choice.

North Myrtle Beach offers an array of fun for your spring and summer getaway. We’ve put together a list of favorite places to eat, shop, and have fun in this part of the Grand Strand. Let this be your guide, but feel free to explore on your own while you’re at it.

What are some of your favorites?


21 Main

You don’t have to go far for seafood and dry-aged beef — it’s on-site, at North Beach. It’s no exaggeration to say this might be the best meal you’ve ever had, and superlative service to go with it. Treat yourself to Oysters Rockefeller, Lobster Bisque, and Prime Bone-In Ribeye.

Filet’s Waterfront

You’ll find a casual vibe, plus hand-cut steaks, seafood, and a sushi bar. The P.E.I. Mussels and Fried Green Tomatoes are delicious, and you can’t beat the view. We also recommend the Beef & Brie Salad, Signature Filet, and Stuffed Flounder.

SeaBlue Restuarant & Wine Bar

Be sure to pack some nice clothes if you plan on a meal at this stylish, elevated steak and seafood place. It’s gaining prestige not only in Myrtle Beach but in the east and south, too. Enjoy Oysters Casino, Seafood Risotto, Center Cut Filet, and more.

Flying Fish Public Market & Grill

This is a fun, lively place to find your favorite seafood dishes with a southern flair, plus sushi. Have a creative cocktail out on the patio, and the stellar staff here will take great care of you and your party. Grab a Southern Burger, or the catch of the day in their signature preparation: Goldfish-jalapeno breaded and pan-seared.

Crooked Hammock Brewery

A backyard brewpub with space for your kids and your pups? It’s right here at the Crooked Hammock Brewery. Live music, cornhole, and some of the most distinctive brews on the Grand Strand await you. Try the Four Tires, Two Friends and a Radio brew; or South to Somewhere for a treat.

Duplin Winery

Muscadine wines, a beautiful patio, live music, and good company — what else do you need? If you love this brand from home, you’ll double-love having a tasting where it all comes from. Bring home a bottle of Cotton Candy, Hatteras Red Reserve, or Sweet Lily while you’re there.

Main Street North Myrtle Beach

You can’t go wrong with any of these establishments right on the strip.

Leave a little extra room in your luggage for the great stuff you’ll bring home.

Havens Marketplace Barefoot Landing

Shop here for unique home goods, furniture, apparel, and more you can’t find anywhere else. A friendly staff is happy to help you find all you need in this must-see store. Havens carry gifts that are faith-infused and beach-inspired.

Here’s where to find the most fun on the Grand Strand.

Shark Wake Park

Fun, fun, fun, whether you’re in the waves or taking a casual walk around the perimeter. Bring your family and dogs to this awesome wake park. It’s a good value and definitely worth giving a try on your next Myrtle Beach visit.

Cherry Grove Fishing Pier

Rebuilt in the 1950s, this classic pier had a tackle shop, restaurant, bar, and observation deck. It’s scenic and romantic, not too crowded, and only $3 per person to visit. Take in the majestic ocean view and cool breeze as you snap incredible pictures of the view.

Lost Treasure Golf

Definitely not your average mini golf, with waterfalls, a train, and more. Don’t let the fun features fool you — there are two challenging courses here! Your second round is half price.
