Bimini’s Oyster Bar & Seafood Market
Near Aloha Mini Golf, this locally owned oyster bar has been serving fresh seafood since 1985.

Reviewers on TripAdvisor, Yelp, and Google love the laid-back vacation atmosphere and freshness of the food.
Captain George’s Seafood Restaurant
Near Broadway at the Beach, this independently owned seafood buffet has 4 locations and only one in SC. This huge restaurant has over 70 different items in their buffet (including an a la carte menu if you prefer) and serves over 1.5 million pounds of crab legs a year. Due to COVID-19, the buffet is being attended by staff members, so that guests will not serve themselves directly. Excellent reviews on TripAdvisor, Yelp, and Google cannot express enough how clean and quality this buffet is compared to all others.
Hook & Barrel
Across from the Marriott Resort and Spa, right by the beach, this family-owned place offers a nautical-themed menu with a bar where you can watch the oyster stew being made. Specializing in environmentally friendly practices and drink pairings, positive reviews on TripAdvisor, Yelp, and Google say that this place goes above and beyond in all aspects of their service.
A few straight blocks from 65th Ave North Surf Area, this locally owned restaurant is the successor to a bar started in 1995, sold in 1999, now restarted in 2008 by the owner and his daughter. This restaurant is a one-stop-shop for all things seafood, selling seasonal meals, merchandise, spices, house-recipe soups and sauces, and any interesting additions for customers who are interested in enjoying or cooking seafood. Fan reviews on TripAdvisor, Yelp, and Google like the variety, freshness, staff, and overall family feeling.
Mrs. Fish Seafood Grill
Across from Myrtle Beach City Hall, Mrs. Fish Seafood Grill is a locally owned seafood grill operating since 1999. If the name seems easily confused with Mr. Fish, that’s on purpose. This restaurant actually replaced the original Mr. Fish back in 1999 and was renamed as an homage to the previous owner. Great reviews on TripAdvisor, Yelp, and Google adore how much flavor, variety, and character are packed into this easy-to-miss location.
