The 14th Avenue Pier in Myrtle Beach has been around since 1926 with the famous Pier 14 restaurant touted as one of the best restaurants in Myrtle Beach (and currently where the visitmyrtlebeach.com web cam is located).
In 1984 the 14th Avenue Pier was rebuilt. The current pier originally opened as a nightclub and a late-night dinner venue that same year. In 1986, the focus of the on-pier restaurant changed to a concept of food and beverage, offering the finest in fresh seafood, steaks and other specialties.
In September of 1989 Hurricane Hugo hit the pier. Some of the damages included the complete loss of the actual pier that extended more than 90 feet beyond the restaurant over the ocean. The restaurant remained, but suffered minor damage. In fact, it was one of the only piers to survive the hurricane. Pier 14 was closed for 5 months after the storm.
The pier reopened in March of 1990, minus an extending pier. By fall of 1991 Pier 14 additions included a new fishing pier, the bait and tackle shop next door, and the outside deck. This pier is now 600 feet long. In 1993 the restaurant was renovated inside, and each winter it undergoes minor upgrade remodeling.
The 14th Avenue Pier is great for fishing with friends and family. Enjoy the grand views of the Atlantic and the ocean breezes!
