Five (Good) Myrtle Beach Dinners for Under $15

After a long day on the course, if golfers want something good to eat but don’t want to break the bank, Myrtle Beach is full of quality choices.

Here are five Myrtle Beach restaurants that will give you an excellent dinner for under $15:

— I’m not a big buffet guy, preferring quality to quantity, but Simply Southern provides both. As the name suggests, there is a lot of comfort food on the menu, highlighted by the barbecue and fried chicken. Combine homemade macaroni and cheese with peach cobbler and banana pudding for dessert and the table is set for an outstanding meal. Simply Southern is a good way to spend $13.99, a price that includes a drink and taxes.

— I’m a sucker for hibachi and Jimmyz Original Hibachi House delivers a steak plate that rivals what you will get in a Japanese steakhouse. The cooked-to-order steak plate is only $10.75 and if you are looking for a healthier option, the poke bowls are good as well.

— Michael Chestnut opened Big Mike’s Soul Food with the goal of serving a meal that tastes as if it was “made at mama’s house.” Mission accomplished. You are doing your stomach a disservice if you don’t get the Big Mike’s Special. It comes with one meat (fried pork chops are a winner) and three sides, give me the fried okra, mac & cheese and candied yams, and cornbread for just $10.75.

— After a soul food entry, a southern buffet, and a hibachi restaurant, it’s time for a healthier option and Mediterranean Bistro is the place to go. It’s on the upper end of our $15 limit, but the gyro with beef and lamb, tzatziki, onions, tomatoes and feta on pita is a winner for $7.99. The grilled chicken platter is $14.99 and comes highly recommended as well.

— Golfers may think of Toffino’s as a pizza place, but if you are in or around Market Common, the cheesesteak hoagie with the homemade sauce and macaroni salad is a great dinner. That it’s only $10 makes it even better, leaving money for one of Toffino’s fresh-baked desserts.
