The best bars in Myrtle Beach for foodies

You’re past the days of dive bars. Here are bars in Myrtle Beach you’ll find creative menu items to pair with your cocktails, cool views, and a fun atmosphere for your next happy hour.

Joe’s Bar & Grill for the racoon run

You’re probably thinking, “What in the world is a raccoon run?” Let me tell you. It’s a boardwalk with bread at the top so raccoons run up to it, and it’s located right next to the bar porch. Genius. Endlessly entertaining for kids! and adults! Enjoy gorgeous marsh views, a fire, and an excellent glass of wine on the outdoor deck in addition to watching for raccoons. The restaurant is casual fine dining – you can dress up or wear jeans, and you’ll feel comfortable in either attire.

Sea Captain’s House for Ocean Views

Surprisingly, you can’t find many restaurants located on the ocean in Myrtle Beach. Sea Captain’s House is undoubtably one of the most popular restaurants for locals and vacationers, and the new-ish outdoor bar and patio makes this oceanfront spot the perfect place to meet for a cocktail.

New South Brewery

New South Brewing / Brewery in Myrtle Beach

New South Brewery is open during the day, and the bar is located in the working brewery warehouse. This is definitely an off-the-beaten-path spot. You’ll find different food trucks on the weekend to pair with the craft beer!

Jem Social for cool cocktails

Jem Social in Myrtle Beach is a new bar with a fancy cocktail menu and trendy atmosphere. I haven’t tried the food, but the menu looks fantastic: Gorgonzola Waffle Fries, Charred Shishitos, and a Charcuterie Board are just a few of the bar snacks. Entrees include shrimp and grits, grilled salmon with cauliflower puree, and Pan Seared Center Cut NY Strip with Truffle Butter, Potatoes Confit, Tossed Arugula and Lemon Aioli. Yum.
