Taking your mom on a Myrtle Beach-area vacation for Mother’s Day is a great way to repay her for all she has done for you and your family over the years. Taking her out for a delicious Mother’s Day brunch in Myrtle Beach is the icing on the cake.
With so many great restaurants to choose from, this is a great opportunity to spoil Mom like never before. Just be sure to show her how responsible you are by booking reservations in advance for the May 8 holiday. Here are five of the best Sunday brunches to celebrate Mother’s Day on the Grand Strand:
Chestnut Hill: The best Sunday spread on the Grand Strand can be found at this Restaurant Row establishment. Featuring a buffet filled with some of Chestnut Hill’s house favorites, this brunch lineup offers lots of breakfast and dinner classics, including fresh, local seafood dishes. The carving station offers a variety of meats, such as ham, turkey and roast beef, to go along with selections of fried chicken, shrimp and oysters. Other favorites include eggs Benedict, seafood gumbo, corned beef hash and fresh fruit. Be sure to save room for the extravagant dessert table. Brunch is served from 10 a.m. till 3:30 p.m.
Croissants: This European cuisine-meets-Southern cooking restaurant has a slogan to match its fare — “Bonjour, Y’all!” It’s a fitting description of the Sunday spread Croissants puts out for Mother’s Day, which includes made-to-order omelets, crepes, barbecue pork and Carolina hash, along with eggs, potatoes and peppers. For those who prefer the lunch portion of brunch, Croissants also offers house-made soups, salads and sandwiches. Croissants’ in-house bakery also serves free Bellinis for all drinking-age patrons. Service starts at 11 a.m. and runs till 3:30 p.m.
House of Blues: For some great nourishment for the body and soul, take Mom to the Sunday Gospel Brunch at the House of Blues. Featuring live inspirational music and a bountiful buffet, the HOB puts on a great show and puts out a great spread for one price. Specializing in Southern cuisine and comfort food, the HOB serves mimosas, fried chicken and waffles, made-to-order omelets, peel-and-eat shrimp, jambalaya, carving-station fare, and tasty desserts like pecan pie and Mississippi Mud Cake. Enjoy the feast while you listen to the soulful sounds of a full gospel choir led by legendary gospel artist and producer Kirk Franklin. The show and food service begin at 9 a.m. and run till 2 p.m.
Magnolia’s at 26th: If you waited too late to get reservations, this North Ocean Boulevard establishment is your best bet for a walk-in brunch. Serving both breakfast and dinner buffets at the same time, Magnolia’s puts out a huge spread that includes a carving station, a salad bar and an awesome dessert table. The crowds are always big on Sundays — and even bigger for Mother’s Day — so arrive early and try to beat the post-church rush, or wait until later in the day. Service runs from 6:30 a.m. to 9 p.m.
Tupelo Honey Cafe: This new Market Common restaurant offers Southern cuisine with a modern twist, and the Sunday Brunch is a prime example of its culinary creativity. Try the Southern Poutine Scramble, Sweet Potato Pancakes, Super Southern Breakfast Bowl and the house special Shoo Mercy Omelet. Fat cathead biscuits, super mimosas and delicious desserts are also part of the lineup. If weather permits, book a table on the scenic outdoor patio.
After enjoying a feast fit for the queen of your family, head back to Paradise Resort for a relaxing day on the beach, on our indoor and outdoor pool decks, or in your comfortable accommodations. It’s the ultimate way to celebrate Mother’s Day in Myrtle Beach.
