When it comes to seafood, Oysters Rockefeller is about as classic as it comes. Created in 1840, it was named after John D. Rockefeller, the richest American at the time, because its sauce carried so much richness. The dish has been remade, deconstructed and adapted much over the many decades since. Capt. Dave’s Dockside in Murrells Inlet serves up a version on a flatbread. The recipe is below. Rockefeller Flatbread 4 c fresh spinach Olive oil 1 c heavy whipping cream 4 strips crispy bacon, chopped ½ onion, carmelized 1 t chopped garlic Parmesan…

Johnny D’s , in Central Myrtle Beach, and its chef, Jamie Saunders, are breakfast legends. While the restaurant may be known for its sweets (hello, pound cake French toast !), its savory is just as nice. The inventive crab cakes benedict perhaps intrigues more than anything else on the sprawling menu. It's chock full of interesting tastes and delightful decadence. Chef Jamie graciously agreed to share his recipe for the grilled crab cake, which you can eat plain, as a sandwich or “benedict” as he does. Grilled Crab Cakes ½ to ¾ cup Panko…

We’re proud of our Low Country roots and all that it means to our culture. But perhaps it’s never more prominently displayed – or enjoyed – than in the authentic cuisine at local restaurants. Here is a list of some of our favorite Low Country dishes, including a few that bring a new twist to a classic. SheCrab Soup This local favorite is at its best at quaint Sea Captain’s House. It’s made with plenty of sherry and some secret ingredients that help it stand out, even as it competes with the incredible oceanfront view. Blue Crab Fondue The blue…

According to a ranking by Spoon University , a blog serving as an “everyday resource” for great meals and restaurants, the ART Burger at ART Burger Sushi Bar in Myrtle Beach is the best burger in the state of South Carolina. We may be biased, but we have to agree. Here, the restaurant’s namesake burger – like all its dishes – is artfully prepared. A ground beef patty is stacked high with thick-sliced bacon, marinated red onions, blue cheese crumbles, walnut chutney (see recipe below), and the memorably branded ART bun. This burger gives art a…
