7 Fun Restaurants in Myrtle Beach, SC for an Unforgettable Feast

This is some text inside of a div block.

So you are looking for fun restaurants in Myrtle Beach huh? Probably searched something like “fun restaurants in Myrtle Beach South Carolina” or “unique restaurants in Myrtle Beach,” and the ol’ Google search machine led you here.

What’s that? How did I know that? We’re just that good. We’ve also created this list *specifically* with people looking for fun restaurants in Myrtle Beach in mind, so welcome! You’re in the right place.

Today, just like everyday we have exactly what you are looking for. This list includes:

We also include links anytime one of these restaurants accept our super convenient virtual gift cards!

What’s a GiftYa?

And just like with all the posts here on GiftYa, we want to take a minute to remind you that a GiftYa is a digital gift card that can be sent within seconds right from your phone or computer. Choose from thousands of local or national restaurants, activities, and attractions, and customize your gift in just a few taps. Your GiftYa works like an eGift code, or you can link it to a Visa, Mastercard, or Amex for easy use.

This is especially helpful if you are out traveling and don’t love to carry cash around with you, or if like me you’re prone to losing your plastic gift cards almost as soon as you get them. Instead you can just carry your gift cards right on your phone that you take with you everywhere already. You don’t even have to worry about keeping track of the gift cards and the balances because your phone does all of that for you. There really isn’t a more convenient option when it comes to buying gift cards and gifts for yourself or others.

Polynesian Fire

Get the Traditional Hawaiian Luau Experience without Leaving Myrtle Beach

6803 N Ocean Blvd | Ocean Blvd | 

Plane tickets to Hawaii are expensive, particularly in this economy. Luckily, you can get the authentic Polynesian luau experience without departing from the continental states at Polynesian Fire in Myrtle Beach. Check in starts daily at 6pm, and by 6:30pm dinner service and live performance have gotten underway. 

Visitors can eat their fill of all the traditional luau foods – pork, chicken, fish, and more – along with plenty of sides like macaroni salad, veggies, dessert, iced tea, lemonade, soft drinks, and even adult beverages if you have cash on hand.

The show is in an open air building – you’ve got a roof overhead in case of sprinkles, but you’re still open to those Myrtle Beach breezes that sweep in off the water.

“Great family fun,very entertaining show!! Family run & cast is amazingly polite, talented & funny. While this isn't Hawaii , the venue is classically dated , the overall experience does take you away to the South Pacific islands ! The Buffett is good, dessert excellent, opportunity to enjoy a cocktail at the small limited bar.” - Yelp Review 

As always we’re busy adding attractions and fun restaurants in Myrtle Beach to GiftYa all the time but you can’t get one for Polynesian Fire just yet. Check back soon.

Hurricanes Daiquiri Bar

The Nostalgic Fun of Building Your Own Slushie Flavor, But with A Boozy Twist

916 N Ocean Blvd | Myrtle Beach Boardwalk | 

Think back to your childhood, a time when there was no greater thrill than the sight of a soda fountain – or even better, the slushie machine at the gas station – with all of its flavors just ready to get mixed into the craziest concoction you could come up with. That, dear reader, is the same vibe we get from Hurricanes Daiquiri Bar on the Myrtle Beach Boardwalk.

Choose from a variety of specialty daiquiri options, or get creative and build your own from the bottom up. While you sit and sip your drink, you can enjoy tasty fried bites like the bangin shrimp, conch fritters, or your classic chicken tenders.

“This place is a little gem located on the boardwalk. Not huge in size but they do offer indoor and outdoor seating. Located inside is a wall full of daiquiri machines which you can mix flavors if you like.” - Yelp Review

Sharkey’s Oceanfront Restaurant

Nothing Says Fun Quite Like Oceanfront Views

600 N Ocean Blvd | Ocean Blvd |

No one wants to interrupt their fun in the sun, but sometimes you’ve gotta stop to refuel so that your next dip in the waves or game of beach volleyball can be just as good as the first. When you need to grab some grub before starting in on your world-class sand sculpture design, Sharkey’s Oceanfront Restaurant is just steps away.

Upstairs, guests can enjoy fresh seafood and beautiful views of the water – trust us when we say you should try to time your visit for sunset. But you can also relax downstairs with Sharkey’s oceanfront bar. Either way, you’ll love the laid-back vibe, and visitors can’t say enough good things about their experience.

“Perfect ocean view meal. Flounder was great! Strawberry daiquiri was perfect, fun place with great food.” - Yelp Review 

Sharkey’s Oceanfront Restaurant is one of the thousands of restaurants that accept digital GiftYa gift cards but it is also among one of the highest rated fun restaurants in Myrtle Beach!

Dino Land Cafe

Have Some Family Fun at This Dino-Themed Restaurant on Kings Highway

1012 S Kings Hwy | Myrtle Beach | 

When you’re searching for fun things to do in Myrtle Beach, many of the options are 21+. Not this one. Dino Land Cafe is the perfect spot if you’ve got little ones in tow or if you simply want to live out your childhood dream of eating lunch with t-rex.

The Caribbean-style food is sure to satisfy kids and adults alike, and adult beverages are available. However the stars of the show at DinoLand Cafe are certainly the costumed dinosaur actors who meet and greet with guests during their stay! 

“My son absolutely loves dinosaurs so when we came across this place while on a family vacation, it was a no brainer. It exceeded my expectations for sure.  Ever so often the huge dinosaur displays move.  So cute! I think it was too much of a distraction where my kids didn't even want to eat their food lol. ” - Yelp Review

Hook & Barrel

Enjoy Your Next Meal Under the Sea for a Fun Restaurant Experience in Myrtle Beach

8014 N Kings Hwy | Arcadian Shores |

Have you ever wanted to sip cocktails under the sea? Same. Now you can live your best mermaid or merman life at Hook & Barrel. This wine bar focuses on procuring locally sourced ingredients, so you can feel good about supporting local farmers and fishermen, too. 

Visitors love the fun atmosphere, and there are plenty of delicious options on the menu to choose from. Personally, we think everything’s a little more fun with bacon. The bourbon bacon appetizer is a great addition to any meal, and visitors can’t stop raving about the baked Alaska for dessert.

“We decided to go to the hook and barrel because it's a wine bar. The unexpected was that they are a very green company, and everything is locally sourced. The atmosphere is fun and light, the service impressive and the food outstanding. This is a must see for anyone in town.” - Yelp Review 

Unfortunately Hook & Barrel isn’t one of the fun restaurants in Myrtle Beach participating with GiftYa just yet, but check back soon cause they might be any day now.

1306 N Ocean Blvd | Myrtle Beach Boardwalk | 

When you’re at the beach – particularly if you aren’t a local – one of the most exciting (and relaxing) things you can do is sit back and watch the waves. Pier 14 takes wave-watching to a whole new level – it’s the only restaurant in Myrtle Beach that’s actually located on a pier, out overtop the water. 

Enjoy fresh seafood and fantastic views at this family-owned restaurant for a fun evening unlike anything else in town. 

“Fun atmosphere on the pier seating are good music and decent food. Scallops were very tender and the fish sandwich was good. Server Gavin was excellent. Would return.” - Yelp Review 

Unfortunately Pier 14 Seafood Restaurant & Fishing Pier isn’t one of the restaurants on the water in Myrtle Beach participating with GiftYa just yet, but check back soon cause they might be any day now.

The Landing at The Boathouse

201 Fantasy Harbor Blvd | Forestbrook | 

The Landing at The Boathouse is one of Myrtle Beach’s most unique restaurants. Where else can you drive your boat up to listen to (free!) live music? For landlubbers, there’s casual dining indoors or three outdoor bar options including a covered patio and a tiki bar located under a 100+ year old willow tree. If that doesn’t tell you what an interesting little gem this spot is, you might just have to stop in and check it out for yourself!

“Cute little concert spot! The bartenders are awesome! The inside is fun and the outside is mellow but I could see being fun during a day concert! A plus - it's a dog friendly bar all days excepts on Sundays.” - Yelp Review
