Bon Appetit: Eat Like a Royal in These 6 Myrtle Beach Eateries

Your table, sir. Your wine list, madam.


In the mood to ditch the board shorts and put on something nice for dinner? Myrtle Beach can accommodate you. For every joint dishing out baskets of fried something or other, there’s a fine dining option here, too. It pays to pack some nice clothes on vacation.


These are always the conversation for memorable dining experiences on the Grand Strand.

First … What Defines Fine Dining?

It’s more than something fancy. Most fine-dining restaurants are full-service. Food is prepared after you order it, not mass-produced. There are usually specific meal courses. 


These establishments are decorated beautifully. They want you to have a great dining experience. Guests sometimes have a set of rules to follow, such as a dress code.
