Good Taste Guide to Fall in Myrtle Beach

date nights, festivals, wine dinners

We’ve rounded up all the best things to do this fall in Myrtle Beach if you love food and wine. Follow along on our social media channels for more!

01. Sparkling + Seafood

Sit underneath sparkly jellyfish lights at the Hook and Barrel bar and enjoy an Emmolo Merlot or a glass of Veuve Cliquot with the crispy fish bites and the savory figs & brie. (No need to choose, just order both.)

02. Wine Gala

Get dressed up for a wine night out, and purchase tickets for the 20th annual Pawleys Island Food & Wine Gala. The event is part of the Pawleys Island Festival of Music & Arts, and it is FABULOUS. (photo via PIFMA)

03. Crafts + Craft Beer

Head to Brookgreen Gardens for the Harvest Home Festival – it’s fun for the whole family – pumpkin decorating, hay rides, scarecrow stuffing, and hay piles for the kids, and craft beer + good food for the adults.

4. Wine Dinner

Make a reservation for one of Ruth’s Chris Tastemaker wine dinners, which features fine wines paired with chef-prepared courses.

5. Rodney Strong + Raccoons

Order a bottle of Rodney Strong Symmetry and sit on the back deck next to the fire at Joe’s Bar and Grill and watch the raccoon run for entertainment. (fact: more glasses of wine, more entertaining raccoons become.)

6. Oktoberfest

Oktoberfest at Market Common is always a blast with a German band, plenty of beer, and great German food. You’ll discover a serious love for red cabbage and new beers.

7. Gordon Biersch Seasonal Menu

Speaking of Oktoberfest, head to Gordon Biersch for their seasonal beer and menu selection which never disappoints. Pretzels with special beer mustards, red cabbage, spaetzel, pork chops… it’s worth the drive to Market Common in October.

08. Date on the water

You only have until the end of October to enjoy the Anchor Café, a waterfront bar with views, beers, and fancy bar food.

09. Dog Happy Hour

Have happy hour on the beach with your pooch: dogs are allowed on the beaches after 5pm in the off-season.

10. Cool Cocktails

Head to Myrtle Beach’s hipster spot for cocktails and foodie food. Strong Waters cocktail hour game is strong (get it?) and stands out as one of the best restaurants in Grand Strand for a day date. Check them out on instagram for the monthly speakeasy secret password for a deal 🥂
