Nothing says summer quite like sitting outside, sipping a cold drink and enjoying a great meal!
If you’ll be visiting (or live here!) the Grand Strand this year, be sure to enjoy some relaxing and refreshing outdoor dining.
The warmer weather has arrived, and some of the best new restaurants to eat at along the Grand Strand are at the revitalized Barefoot Landing in North Myrtle Beach.
Barefoot Landing, the area’s only waterway shopping, dining and entertainment destination along the Intracoastal Waterway, has transformed in recent years to bring more shopping options, family entertainment, and dining experiences that feature outdoor seating.
Many of Barefoot Landing’s restaurants have offered outdoor dining options, including Flying Fish Public Market & Grill, Joe’s Crab Shack, Wild Wing Café, Ultimate California Pizza, River City Café, Umberto’s, Johnny Rockets, Bully’s Pub & Grill, Dick’s Last Resort, and Greg Norman Australian Grille.
In the past year, Barefoot Landing has welcomed Lucy Buffett’s LuLu’s, Taco Mundo Kitchen Y Cantina and Blueberry’s Grill, with plans to expand the waterfront dining district, Dockside Village.
Here are some waterfront and new places to eat outdoors at Barefoot Landing:
Spring/Summer Hours: Open 7 a.m.-3 p.m. daily; Available for private events afterhours
Suggested meal: “The Melting Pot Omelet is a cold smoked salmon, American and Bordeaux brie cheeses, caramelized onions, capers, and avocado crema.”
