Best Brunch in Myrtle Beach
Whoever came up with the brilliant idea to combine breakfast and lunch into one delicious meal deserves a medal, or at least an all-you-can-eat brunch at the Myrtle Beach eatery of their choice.
The Sunday special can be found at numerous restaurants along the Grand Strand, but here are five of the best:
• House of Blues: The Sunday Gospel brunch is famous at the House Of Blues, which puts out a spread of Southern soul food along with a little nourishment for the soul. Live gospel performances highlight a feast of breakfast and lunch items - from the shrimp and grits and country ham and biscuits to the Southern fried chicken and mashed potatoes. Reservations are recommended.
• Chestnut Hill: This Restaurant Row favorite is known for its Sunday brunch, particularly among locals, which is a good sign for visitors. A carving station featuring ham, roast beef and turkey joins a buffet of Lowcountry cuisine, like the shrimp and grits and oysters on the half-shell, and breakfast staples, such as fresh fruit and Eggs Benedict. The dessert table also makes it tough to decide which treat to eat, so be sure to save room!
• Magnolia’s at 26th: This Ocean Boulevard buffet serves locals and visitors seven days a week, but Sunday sees the selection double in size with a nice breakfast/lunch combo. Enjoy a plate of scrambled eggs, sausage, bacon, biscuits and gravy, go back for a lunch of fried chicken and pork chops, steak and gravy and a plethora of Southern-style veggies, and be sure to visit the carving station and dessert bar.
• Gordon Biersch Brewery: OK, so a brew pub may sound like an odd place for brunch, but this Market Common hot spot also brews up a nice Sunday special that’s unique on the Strand. Try the Bistro Filet Benedict, the Crab Omelet or the Hangover Pizza with scrambled eggs, spicy sausage, peppers, onions and sour cream. Top off your meal with a house beer or a Bloody Mary from the bar.
• Salt Water Creek: This Murrells Inlet mainstay makes a mean Sunday brunch. House specialties include breakfast classics like the Stuffed French Toast, the Lox, Chives and Cream Cheese Omelet, and the Shrimp Benedict, plus lunch and dinner favorites such as the Pork Chop and Eggs and Meatloaf with Mashed Potatoes. Either beat the after-church crowd or make reservations as this south end favorite stays packed.
