Whether you plan on soaking up the sun from your home away from home in Beach Cove Resort or you’re an adventurer, you’ll need some sustenance along the way. Here are some of the best North Myrtle Beach restaurants you can’t miss during your next trip to NMB.

  • Address: 4744 Hwy 17 S, North Myrtle Beach, SC

  • Favorite menu item: Build Your Own Seafood Boil

  • Price point: $$

Hands down one of the best seafood restaurants in North Myrtle Beach and the area as a whole, the Flying Fish Public Market & Grill tops our list with its great food and amazing ambiance. A mix of seafood restaurants, sushi bars, and American food concepts, there’s a little something for everyone at this massive three-story destination.

Order fresh catches from the raw bar or sushi menu, or try some coconut shrimp and hushpuppies for an appetizer. Whatever you do, don’t sleep on the Charleston SheCrab soup or the opportunity to “Build Your Own Boil,” throwing in some shrimp, clams, and whatever else sounds good!

Of course, the menu here also has a few classics for less adventurous eaters and sides to match every palate.
