5 Must-Visit Rooftop Restaurants & Bars in Myrtle Beach

For those looking to take their beach vacation to peak levels, visiting an open-air restaurant/bar with a great bird’s-eye view of the coastal surroundings is a great way to make it happen. And in the Myrtle Beach area, with the Atlantic Ocean right in the region’s backyard, the scenery from one of these high-elevation establishments tends to be especially spectacular.


Ready to take your Grand Strand getaway to new heights? Head for one of these five lofty rooftop restaurants/bars during your next visit to the Myrtle Beach area:

Tin Roof — A popular Myrtle Beach restaurant/bar/entertainment venue found about a mile south of The Strand Resort on North Ocean Boulevard, Tin Roof boasts the tagline “A Live Music Joint” for good reason — as it brings in local, regional and national bands and artists to perform on its main stage nightly. And when its guests need a break from all the onstage action, they can take in ocean breezes and sprawling views of the Atlantic Ocean from the establishment’s open-air rooftop patio — which hosts its own live musical performances on occasion, too.


RipTydz Oceanfront Grille & Rooftop Bar — Also reached via a straight shot down North Ocean Boulevard (and just over a mile south of The Strand), RipTydz serves up good times and good food nightly. The establishment is home to three bars, and its food menu features fresh local seafood, prime steaks, tacos, burgers and more — and of course, all of the above go great with the amazing ocean views found on the rooftop patio and bar.


SOHO and Rooftop 21 — Located about a half-mile south of The Strand on 21st Avenue North in Myrtle Beach, SOHO offers visiting diners an extensive menu filled with delicious sushi, steak, seafood and pasta dishes. And when they head up to Rooftop 21, the establishment’s open-air rooftop bar, guests can enjoy their favorite food and drink with a side of great ocean and city views.

Banditos — Found just under a mile south of The Strand on North Ocean Boulevard, Myrtle Beach’s Banditos Cantina is home to authentic Mexican dishes and the area’s largest selection of tequilas. And whether their meal consists of tacos, burritos, quesadillas or nachos — and whether they’re washing it down with a cerveza or a margarita — guests can enjoy it all while taking in the high-elevation seaside sights available on the establishment’s open-air rooftop bar and patio.


Wicked Tuna at 2nd Avenue Pier — Located about 2 miles south of The Strand on Myrtle Beach’s 2nd Avenue Pier, Wicked Tuna serves up tasty sushi, seafood, salads and sandwiches from its pier-side perch just above the beach and the Atlantic Ocean’s crashing waves. And when guests head up to the establishment’s open-air rooftop bar, they can feast on their favorite fresh-caught dishes while taking in spectacular views of the Myrtle Beach coastline.
