You know you’ll be back to a restaurant after you skim the menu and realize you want to order nearly everything. Drift – A Coastal Eatery, located in the Grande Dunes shopping center off of Bypass 17, is a new brunch and lunch spot in Myrtle Beach that has already become a locals’ favorite. (At least, according to my instagram feed!)
The coastal chic atmosphere is bright, spacious and open – an important feature in these weird social-distancing times – and feels modern and trendy. On the website, the attention to detail is explained, “The atmosphere of the restaurant is a custom design. Locally and family-owned Two Brothers Wood Works handcrafted each table from over 100 year old hardwood trees. They range from White Oak, Pecan and Hickory.”
The breakfast menu will have you torn between sweet and savory. Would you go for a flame-roasted Fuji apples on top of a Belgium waffle? Or one of the eight eggs Benedict’s? This is why you’ll have to go back again and again… everything looks amazing, and has enough of a fancy, gourmet twist to make it unique from other Grand Strand brunch spots. You’d expect the menu to have a bit of sticker shock – but everything is reasonably priced, even the duck confit Benedict (fancy!) is $12.49.
If you’re in the mood for a salad but don’t want a boring salad, you’re going to be happy with Drift’s options. The salads will make you say “wow.” Flame-roasted Fuji apples, candied pecans and goat cheese combined with grilled salmon and a shallot vinaigrette is as delicious as it sounds. This may be my favorite salad in all of the Grand Strand. The arugula salad with Burrata is incredible, too.
