Butter My Biscuit: Myrtle Beach’s 5 Best Breakfast Restaurants

There is nothing wrong with a good stack of flapjacks but if you want the day’s first meal to potentially be its best, Myrtle Beach now features restaurants that have turned breakfast into a delicacy.

That’s right, the land of the pancake house has quietly opened a collection of restaurants good enough to make you want to push your morning tee time back. If you need more than a sausage biscuit for breakfast on your next Myrtle Beach golf trip, here are five restaurants you have to check out.

Blueberry’s Grill is home to a pair of locations – one by Grande Dunes, the other at Barefoot Resort – and both are worth a visit. Seasonal specials, an assortment of benedicts, fresh fruit and a delicious bloody Mary make Blueberry’s a great place to fill the tank before striking your first tee shot. Recommendations: cheezo rizzo bowl (chorizo, scrambled, eggs, spinach and home fries) or the stone barn pork belly benedict.

Johnny D’s, with three locations, has become a Grand Strand institution. Everything is good but when no less an authority than Food Network says you make theJohnny D's Waffles best waffles in South Carolina, you know what the leading item on the menu is. The red velvet waffle might be the most popular – it’s like having dessert for breakfast – but you will need sustenance to get you through the round, so here is a vote for the twisted chicken and waffles, a house made bacon waffle topped with breaded chicken tenders, a drizzle of maple mustard and cinnamon sugar.

— The newest entry on our list is Drift, a coastal themed eatery that opened in the Fall of 2020. The menu features all your breakfast favorites using fresh, locally sourced ingredients. The tables are handcrafted from oak, pecan and hickory trees that were more than 100 years old and that same attention to detail extends into the kitchen. If you don’t want the spicy wrap, which includes sausage, chipotle aioli and jalapenos, the salmon avocado toast offers a lighter option without sacrificing flavor.

— If your golf vacation takes you to Pawleys Island, BisQit is a great option, assuming you have a late tee time as it opens at 9 a.m. on Saturday and Sunday, 10 a.m.Bisqit on weekdays. The menu isn’t as expansive as our other options, but you really only need one entry – the chicken & bisQits, which includes fried chicken, gravy and crumbled bacon. It’s every bit as good as it sounds. (Right photo from Bisqit Facebook Page)

— You can order off the menu at Sea Captain’s House, one of the area’s only stand-alone, oceanfront eateries, but there is no need. Sea Captain’s is home to the area’s best breakfast buffet, featuring everything from an omelet station to shrimp and grits. Best of all, the quality matches the quantity at this smorgasbord. The views of the Atlantic Ocean are tough to beat as well.
