Chances are you are, especially after a round of golf in Myrtle Beach this summer. Lucky for you, there’s no need to go dry any longer than you need to here. The area is rich in establishments to put a cold one (or two) down.
Here’s our list of recommended watering holes right here on the Grand Strand.
1. The Bowery
Visit a slice of country and rock music history on the Grand Strand in this Southern dive. This is one of those places where something’s always going on, and you’ll be surrounded by good people. Try specialty drinks such as American Lemonade, Peach on the Beach, and Screwed.
2. Bumstead’s Pub
Get the dark-wood, English-pub feels with a teeming beer lineup (120-plus!) and stellar sandwiches. Make a quick stop for wings, a Cuban sandwich, or barbecue nachos, and find great service on your visit. All that beer and a full food menu, every day.
3. Bourbon Street
This mellow establishment hosts live music, serving comfort food late into the night. Good food, such as cream of crab soup, oysters, scallops wrapped in bacon, and more. We recommend a Dreamsicle or Burley Oak IPA on draft.
4. LandShark Bar & Grill
In the middle of it all, this laid-back chain restaurant has tropical drinks in a fun environment. You’ll love the feel of the sea breeze out on the deck and will want to make plans to visit for your next vacation. Try a Fins Up Margarita, Long Island Beacher, or 5 O’Clock Somewhere.
5. The Ole Irish Pub
This place feels like a holiday every day, with an outdoor deck and an Irish bar menu of shepherd’s pie and corned beef. They serve excellent Guinness Stew and Reubens, too, in a place you just have to try. Add a pint of cold Guinness and you’ve got it all.
6. Pine Lakes Tavern
It’s a quaint, smoke-free establishment that serves local food, with deck seating. Locals love it, and it’ll become one of your favorite pubs on the Grand Strand, with lots of craft beer on tap. Drop in during happy hour for a Cinnamon Toast Crunch, Dreamsicle, or Royal Apple shooter.
7. The Tavrne
Hit this bar and grill for a cold one and spirited game of darts. You’ll find good people, great food specials, and a menu that isn’t your typical bar fare. It’s Myrtle Beach’s answer to the friendly atmosphere of Cheers, from that classic 80s show.
