Top 5 Seafood Places in North Myrtle Beach

Top 5 Seafood Restaurants in North Myrtle Beach

The Grand Strand is famous for its seafood and you won't find any better or fresher than right here in North Myrtle Beach.  Here are our top five:

Bimini's Oyster Bar: This cozy little beach-themed eatery is tucked away in a strip mall off Restaurant Row.  Featuring excellent steamed shrimp and oysters as well as fresh catch specials and seafood platters, Bimini's is also a popular hangout for tourists and locals alike.  Feeling adventurous?  Try one of their Oyster Shooters!


Duffy Street Seafood Shack:  This locally owned and operated establishment is so good there are now three of them, all in the North Myrtle Beach area.  Try the original on Main Street or spin-offs in Cherry Grove and on Restaurant Row where  hot, fresh seafood is the feature of the day.




Preston's Seafood and Country Buffet: Come hungry to the all-you-can- eat spread, which features all the seafood classics - fish, shrimp, crab and oysters - as well as outstanding  "land food" favorites - prime rib, T-Bone Steaks, fried chicken and baby back ribs.


Rockefeller's Raw Bar: For those who like their seafood fresh and steamed rather than battered and fried, Rockefeller's is your place.  Try the steam kettles filled with shrimp, scallops and more swimming in Old Bay & Beer, Garlic & Wine, and other tasty sauces.



SeaBlue: For a more upscale dining experience, SeaBlue is a modern restaurant one might expect to find in New York City, not North Myrtle Beach.  Featuring outstanding sushi and creative tapas dishes with an extensive wine list, SeaBlue is a great place for a romantic dinner.
