Farm-to-table

Located on the corner of Ocean and 21, across from The Breakers Resort, is the newest restaurant and bar to open in Myrtle Beach. Here at Strong Waters we strive to support all things local including businesses, the community, local farmers and artisans. We shop at local farmers markets in the area for herbs, cheeses, produce and sustainable fish found on our menu as well as the produce we utilize behind the bar.

At Strong Waters, we take the meaning of craft to the next level by sourcing only the freshest and highest quality ingredients for our cocktails and cuisine. We utilize the “Farm to Shaker” method for our cocktails, meaning we create unique drinks from local ingredients that transport you to another time and place. Our craft beer list is constantly changing and we only select beer from breweries around the state to give you a true taste of the Carolinas. Speaking of taste, we believe you’ll love our take on the flavors of the Lowcountry in the dishes on our main menu!

                      This is the second time I have been to Strong Waters this summer. The first time they were short staffed in May, but the bartender/waiter/busboy (all in one) did a great job and the food was amazing, the drinks were delicious, and it's a really cool atmosphere. This time, the only staff on the floor was the manager - she was hostess, bartender, waiter, and it was very challenging. They were also out of several items on the menu, which we didn't discover until we placed our order (would have been nice while we sat there to know what items were out so we didn't decide on those and then be told we couldn't have them because of supply issues. The drinks were not as good as in the Spring because there was no bartender, just the manager making drinks - not the same at all! Until they get their staffing issues and supply issues under control, I won't be going back - which is too bad, because it is a great concept and the food is good.

                      Good was ok, drinks where great but the service was subpar. The older lady that basically ran the show Friday evening was really abrupt with her answers as if we told all the staff to quit. This was our first experience in this city and restaurant in the city, so with our much to compare it too locally I gave it a relatively high score… if compared to home in DC where customer service is everything then the score would’ve been lower.

                      They gave away our reservation to a larger group. Which we had to wait for 10 minutes to find out because there were no greeters or wait staff. Just one rude bartender who never bothered to apologize. Will never go again and will warn others to stay away.

                      The restaurant appeared way understaffed, which is unfortunate. The decor was very nice and drinks were good. The food was extremely bland. The burger we ordered was supposed to come with a picked green tomato and it just had a regular tomato. The crab cake sandwich was very disappointing. I tasted no crab, just breadcrumbs. The fries were definitely frozen grocery store fries. I hope they are able to staff the restaurant appropriately since it’s a good location and atmosphere.

                      Strong Waters is amazing! Tried the sea bass at the server’s suggestion and it was truly the best I’ve had anywhere. My husband had the beef tenderloin and it could be cut with a fork. Highly recommend!

                      Our favorite restaurant during our vacation! Such an interesting interior. The menu is small but you're sure to find something you love, and everything we had was absolutely amazing. The wagyu sliders, the charcuterie board, turkey club sandwich, ribeye steak, and fish tacos. Loved the charred Caesar salad. Ribeye was so tender and flavorful! Better than some steakhouses. The drinks offered are varied and unique. Great selection of beers on tap. All very good that we had. Crème Brule and bread pudding decadent and a perfect ending to a fantastic meal. Highly recommended. Reservations can be made with Open Table. They open at 4:00 and are closed on Sundays.

                      The bartender was our server. The place was pretty much empty. The sliders were very good. The wrong main entree was delivered. We split an entree and were not given an extra plate. We enjoyed the smoke infused cocktail and wanted one to split after dinner and when we asked the server to split it then his response was “I’m not your maid”. We found that very rude.

                      The food was good. However they are extremely understaffed. The menu needs to be presented a little more professionally than with a crumpled up piece of paper stapled to another. Surprisingly though the food was tasty and worth a repeat despite the suspect nature of the beginning.

                      Phenomenal! Damien was so nice and attentive. He made you feel like family once you sat down. I wouldn’t come super hungry as the entrees are smaller portions, but definitely one of the best meals here in Myrtle Beach. Save room for the desserts - YUM! Everything was SO good!

                      First time we visited the restaurant and had the best experience from time we got there til the time we left. Apps and entrees were excellent and portions were aplenty! Hidden gem for sure and will go back next year for sure!!

                      The place was more of a bar that served food. But the food was much better than usual bar food. Just the expectations was more of a restaurant and felt more like a bar. With the issues in the restaurant industry in SC, there was limited staff but they worked hard to keep things moving and we felt like they didn’t miss a beat.

                      It wasn’t particularly busy, but service was slow because there was only 1 waitress and waiter for the whole place. Food was good, but too bad there wasn’t more employees. We booked online and our server said they were overbooked due to online app.

                      Strong waters was excellent. The craft cocktails were delicious & loved the bartenders choice option to make things fun. Food was amazing, highly recommend the shrimp and crab dip. The entrees were yummy too. The live music was a nice touch. All around good vibes. Great for young adults or adults looking for a place with ambience and good food and drinks.

                      Damian was fantastic! The food was on point and the music was very good! It is a quiet loud in there but Damian more than made up for it. It will be a destination place on our next trip to MB!

                      The cocktail menu was very unique and drinks were good! The food was good too, the only negative was the Turkey on the Turkey club was dry, but the sandwich itself was good. I was happy to find a restaurant in walking distance from our hotel with fresh food, most places near the beach I found were fast or fried food so I was glad to find this gem! It is very small inside so be sure make a reservation!

                      It was over an hour to be served dinner. I ordered the shrimp po boy and there were 4 shrimp. There were just two servers/bartenders and the place was slammed. It was a holiday weekend and they were under staffed. They didn’t even apologize for the slow service.
