You’re on vacation! Myrtle Beach literally has over 1,000 restaurants to choose from, and no one wants to throw away money and waste precious vacation time with a dismal dining experience. These Myrtle Beach restaurants combine top-notch service and setting together with some of the best Grand Strand cuisine every tourist would appreciate and enjoy.

The first notable selling point for the Key West Grill is its location, conveniently situated within the Broadway at the Beach district and Celebrity Circle, which almost every tourist undoubtedly visits at least once while vacationing in Myrtle Beach.

How does a bowl of Caribbean Conch Chowder sound? Other popular entree favorites include Seafood Fettuccine, King Crab Legs and Tuna Tower; however, this is where the Key West Grill gets really interesting. There is a Charter Captain’s ‘Catch of the Day,’ which makes each visit unique, and there are eight different ways in which the fresh catch can be prepared. The most popular way, and coinciding with the name of the restaurant, is ‘Key West’ style, which means the fish is seared with lime butter and tart mustard. Customers in the mood for lobster are able to select their own live lobster from a saltwater tank, which naturally guarantees the freshest lobster and a unique and favorable dining experience. There are also 19 mouth-watering appetizers, a full drink menu, budget-friendly Happy Hour and a kids-friendly menu and entertainment.

As the restaurant’s name suggest, Dirty Don’s serves up the best fresh oysters in Myrtle Beach, and they are also well-known for their shellfish and the ‘Dirty Don’s Dunkin’ Pot.’ Tourists don’t have to enjoy raw oysters or shellfish to have a blast at Dirty Don’s Oyster Bar & Grill, however, as there is quite an extensive menu, with entrees like Fish n’ Chips and specialty sandwiches like the Carolina BBQ, as well as burgers, other seafood menu choices and delicious steaks. The Dirty Don’s Boardwalk location (there are two locations) features a full-service bar, televisions and ample seating arrangements away from the bar as well.
