Touted by USA Today as “one of the best places in the nation to feed the kids”, River City Cafe is known for its huge assortment of hamburgers, homemade onion rings, fresh seasoned fries, and a great selection of salads and sandwiches, all served in a very relaxing beach atmosphere.

5. ART Burger Sushi Bar
Whether your family wants burgers or sushi, ART Burger Sushi Bar has you covered! The inside dining atmosphere features lots of great local artwork and the outside dining features fabulous beach views. Located just down from the end of the Myrtle Beach Boardwalk. The sushi was delicious!
6. Sea Captain’s House
The Sea Captain’s House She Crab soup was absolutely amazing. It is rich and thick and creamy and full of crab meat and flavor. Plus, they top the she crab soup off with sherry which makes it so warm and rich. Yum. We also had an amazing view of the ocean while we enjoyed our dinner. This is definitely one of the best restaurants in Myrtle Beach, so don’t miss it! This seafood restaurant is the perfect place for a romantic dinner.
7. Wicked Tuna
This trendy, upscale addition to the Murrells Inlet Marshwalk prides itself on breathtaking views and innovative cuisine and it delivers in both areas! It located outside of Myrtle Beach really but worth the trip to experience the whole area. The Wicked Tuna sushi menu in particular is unique. I got the Surf and Turf Roll and it was delicious. They also had a very tasty cocktail menu.
8. Rivertown Bistro
This little gem is hidden away a little outside of Myrtle Beach in Conway and behind an unassuming exterior, lies a swanky, modern interior with great service, and great food. Along with many Low Country favorites, the homemade sweet potato chips and dipping sauce are a amazing! Get them. You really must. I also tried the crab cakes which came with a delightful dirty rice and of course, a sweet tea. I would like the Rivertown Bistro to be located in Nashville so I could go every week. Delicious!
