The question local golfers get asked most is, “Which Myrtle Beach course do you like best?”
Close behind that query is, “Where is the best place to eat?”
The answers to both questions are largely subjective but if you believe in the wisdom of the masses, the best brunch spot in all of South Carolina is located in the heart of Myrtle Beach, according to Yelp, America’s most trusted resource for restaurant reviews.
After taking into account the volume of reviews and ratings over time, Yelp ranked 10/Fold Biscuits (top and right photos) as South Carolina’s best brunch spot. That ranking comes as no surprise to Myrtle Beach area foodies.
Whether you want the biscuit bread pudding, Sunday supper (fried chicken, buttermilk dressing and thick cut pickles over a biscuit), shrimp boy (fried shrimp, red cabbage, tomato and roasted jalapeno tartar sauce on a buttermilk biscuit) or another of 10/Fold’s creative menu options, a great meal awaits.
10/Fold’s touts itself as the best biscuit-based restaurant in the south and it’s a claim that is hard to dispute.
While Charleston attracts a disproportionate amount of attention for the quality of its food scene, the Grand Strand offers as many great restaurants as any locale in the Palmetto State.
While Yelp ranked 10/Fold Biscuits as South Carolina’s best brunch spot, it wasn’t a unanimous decision. Here are four other Myrtle Beach eateries that could’ve won the Yelp award.
– Locally sourced ingredients form the backbone of a menu at Blueberry’s Grill (pictured right) that offers everything from benedicts and skillets to shrimp and grits and more. If you like brunch with a little spice, the Cheezo Rizo skillet, featuring chorizo, home fries and fresh spinach, is a must.
– As you might imagine, waffles are the house specialty at Johnny D’s Waffle House and they are as good as any in the state. Sure, it’s like having dessert for breakfast, but the red velvet waffles, drizzled with cream cheese icing and topped with cinnamon sugar and butter, are even better than they sound. If waffles aren’t your thing, the expansive menu also offers an assortment of omelets, benedicts and more.
– Specializing in Southern comfort food, BisQit delivers an assortment of enticing brunch offerings, including the “Lowcountry,” which features root beer braised pork belly, smoked gouda, Lowcountry slaw and Bearnaise aioli on a “bisQit.” Treat yourself if your Myrtle Beach golf trip has you playing in Pawleys Island.
– Located across from the Grande Dunes Resort Club, Drift, (pictured right) a coastal inspired eatery, is a newer establishment that has rocketed to the top of many lists. Options are aplenty, but here is a vote for the duck benedict, which features duck confit, sauteed spinach, caramelized onions and hollandaise sauce over two poached eggs and a toasted croissant.
10/Fold Biscuits is outstanding and it earned its place atop the Yelp list, but it’s hardly alone in serving an unforgettable bunch.
