Everyone likes to try something new and Myrtle Beach, not surprisingly, continues to welcome outstanding new restaurants to an already thriving dining scene. If you are looking for the latest Myrtle Beach has to offer, here are five recently-opened restaurants that are worth checking out.
— Any place that touts itself as “the most diverse biscuit-based menu you’ve ever encountered,” shoots to the top of my “I’ve got to try this list.” Hence 10/Fold Biscuits, which offers up the Sunday Supper – a Jalapeno-cheddar biscuit, fried chicken, pickles and a special sauce – comes highly recommended. The shrimp and grits, served over a buttermilk biscuit, will leave you clamoring for seconds. Keep in mind, 10/Fold is only open until 2 p.m. (pictured right)
— If you are looking for something light after a round at River Hills, or one of the North Strand’s other outstanding courses, Bar 19 Twelve in North Myrtle Beach has opened to rave reviews. Featuring a craft cocktail menu built around an extensive bourbon list, Bar 19 Twelve offers tapas and small plates that feature made-to-order deviled eggs, jalapeno bacon-wrapped shrimp and Kobe beef burgers among other offerings.
— Johnny D’s, a local institution, continues to expand and if your next Myrtle Beach golf trip has you playing along the South Strand, stop by the newest location in Surfside Beach. The lunch menu is good but Johnny D’s is renowned for its waffles and a creative selection of eggs benedict options. Give it a try.
— Crooked Hammock Brewery at Barefoot Landing has quickly emerged as one of the area’s most popular restaurants. Sure the 14 original craft brews are popular, but Crooked Hammock is equally serious about a menu that features an extensive selection of burgers and sandwiches. Count on good food and a good time.
— If Cajun cuisine and live entertainment are at the top of your list, NOLA’Z New Orleans Dueling Piano Bar & Eatery is the place to go. Gumbo, boudin balls, jambalaya pasta and more are all on a menu that will satisfy your craving for food with a little kick. As for entertainment, it’s hard to be a good dueling piano bar.
