Restaurant Week 2024 in Myrtle Beach, January 11-21, is in full force. But where you do start? From casual to fine dining and everything in between, featuring new menu dishes, popular menu items, discounts, and special multi-course menus, there is a ton of options. Which is why we’ve put together a suggested three-day itinerary of where to go and dine for lunch and dinner.

You’re welcome!

1. Day 1

Meander your way around the Broadway at the Beach area on Day 1, with a stop at Carolina Ale House, 2915 Hollywood Drive, for a special three-course lunch menu for $24.99 per person. Choose one: Frickles (crispy buttermilk-battered dill pickle chips) or Beer-Battered Cheese Curds. Choose either a Buffalo Zinger Wrap or Sourdough Patty Melt. And finish up with Macked Out Doughnuts or Strawberry Cheesecake.

For dinner, nearby Landry’s Seafood, 1312 Celebrity Circle, is offering three courses for up to $55 per person. The delicious dinner menu selections include seafood fondue with Parmesan bread, spinach and artichoke dip with house made tortilla chips, fried calamari, Parmesan-crusted chicken, Parmesan cedar plank shrimp, Tilapia Hemingway, a 9-ounce chargrilled center cut sirloin, Flounder Melissa, crab-stuffed mahi, shrimp crab capellini, a chargrilled 6-ounce filet, chocolate bread pudding, and vanilla bean crème brulee with fresh berries.

2. Day 2

On Day 2, the north end of Myrtle Beach has several options and cuisines for a tempting tasting tour. Take advantage of the Croissants Bistro and Bakery (8014 North Kings Highway) three-course lunch or brunch menu for $25 that includes a choice of French onion soup or fried green tomatoes, shrimp and grits or a chicken salad sandwich on a croissant, and your choice of any slice of cake or individual pastry.

At dinnertime, venture a bit farther north and choose from these two oceanfront restaurants that are just down the road from each other: Black Drum Brewing, 9750 Queensway Blvd., and Café Amalfi, 10000 Beach Club Drive.

Located within Kingston Plantation, Black Drum Brewing is offering a special two-course dinner menu for $22. Starters are hush puppies served with sweet and savory honey butter, smoked pimento cheese served with fresh popped barbecue spiced pork rinds, or a half garden or Caesar salad. Entrée choices are a pork or chicken sandwich served with Southern slaw, a griddle-seared beer brat topped with sauerkraut and House IPA mustard in a pretzel bun, a fried chicken thigh with Southern slaw, or a smoked portobello sandwich. Desserts are banana pudding or a slice of Smores cake.

Boasting beautiful panoramic ocean views within the oceanfront Hilton Myrtle Beach Resort, Café Amalfi will have a three-course dinner menu for $35 per person. Choose from wild mushroom tomato bisque or a roasted beet salad for the first course; seared barbecue shrimp with white cheddar mac and cheese, asparagus tips, and smoked bacon, beef tenderloin tips, butter squash risotto, or a maple-brined pork shop with bacon apricot chutney, crispy onions, garlic mashed potatoes, and charred brussels sprouts for the second course; and a choice of a slice of red velvet cake or key lime pie.

3. Day 3

North Myrtle Beach is also representing its fine fare during Restaurant Week. Try Tidewater Grill and Bistro, 2100 Old Highway 17 North, for a four-course $30 lunch menu: your choice of an appetizer (baked crab and artichoke dip, Thai-style fried shrimp, soup or salad, or fried green tomatoes), entrée (chicken Alfredo, blackened Atlantic salmon, prime bone-in pork chop, Calabash-style fried shrimp, whitefish garlic sauté, or shrimp scampi), and dessert.

For the main event at dinner, dine at 21 Main,  719 N. Beach Blvd., on the grounds of North Beach Resort and be treated to a special dinner menu of three courses for $59 per person. For the first course, choose from bacon-wrapped scallops, a crab cake with tarragon aioli, the 21 Main sushi roll, French onion soup, or Caesar salad. Entrée options are a 6-ounce filet with roasted garlic whipped potatoes, braised asparagus, and finished with a cabernet demi-glace, a pan-fried Frenched chicken breast with sweet potato puree and oven-roasted broccolini, a 12-ounce bone-in butcher block prime pork chop with roasted garlic whipped potatoes and a sweet red wine reduction, Chilean sea bass, or the chef’s daily 45 dry-aged beef feature. For dessert, the chef’s crème brulee or New York cheesecake topped with fresh berries and Melba sauce.
