Our Sizzling 7: The Best Myrtle Beach Seafood Restaurants

With its picturesque coastal location and 60-plus miles of Atlantic Ocean shoreline, it should come as no surprise that the Grand Strand is widely considered one of the best places in the nation to get delicious seafood. After all, fresh-caught seafood is always the tastiest, and the Myrtle Beach area sits right at the source.


Where there is less consensus, though, is in where the area’s best seafood is served. Seafood restaurants are common on the Grand Strand, and most of them are far better than your average eatery serving ocean-derived dishes.


To help you find the best options during your next oceanfront getaway at The Strand Resort, we’ve put together this list of our seven favorite Myrtle Beach seafood restaurants:

Sea Captain’s House

Found just a few blocks from The Strand at 3002 North Ocean Boulevard in Myrtle Beach, this local favorite has been serving up fresh seafood for 60 years. Explore the menus here — and be sure to try the award-winning She Crab Soup.

Hook & Barrel

Located at 8014 North Kings Highway in Myrtle Beach, this eatery puts a focus on creating distinctive, sustainable seafood dishes made with local ingredients. Check out all the menu has to offer.

Bimini’s Oyster Bar & Seafood Market
