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!

    When the reviews said service and food were bad I should have listened. We were the only ones in the restaurant at 5 pm (clue) and it still took forever to get waited on. The Berry mule was good but there were no beers on tap as the cooler was broken. The crispy Brussels sprouts were soggy and overdone; my skirt steak tacos were in cubes, drowned in BBQ sauce and no cheese; the blackened shrimp tacos didn't have the aioli sauce. My husband asked if he could substitute Mac and cheese for the fries and he was told yes but charged $4 and it was cold and watery. My fries came late but were the best thing about the meal. As locals it was very disappointing when we were looking for something near the show we were seeing.

    Awful service. We had three different waiters. Two of which were clueless. Went for the chicken with gnocchi as shown on Open Table menu. No longer being served. In fact, there was not a single chicken item on the menu. Thought we were going for a nice dinner only to discover they were having a trivia contest. Loud and irritating. Hostess rationalized everything but could really care less. More interested in making sure her baby was shown off to the entire staff. Totally unprofessional.

    Heed the advice from previous reviewers to pas on this place. 30 minutes for a basic cocktail and an hour later food came cold. It was a mess and the front of the house staff seemed to hide in the back. It was too bad as they could have communicated that something was wrong. Instead all the tables started talking amongst ourselves until someone got up and went into the kitchen. When we told the server the food was cold he got upset and snapped at my friend.

    Better than expected. Excellent cocktails. Rock shrimp tacos/ pork tacos were very good. Bartender (server as well) was nice, cordial. On top of it! This place should be and deserves to be busier.

    Go for the drinks. Not the food. Extremely limited menu because 1/2 the items were missing. When missing that many items, we should have been told when handed the menu. No OpenTable reservation needed on a Thursday. Restaurant was nearly empty. I wanted to go to this restaurant for the food offered on the menu and had hoped for a particular vibe being that we had made a reservation. Had expected more.

    They were out of everything. We had a 7pm dinner reservation and they were out of everything. My lavender cocktail was cranberry juice with lavender flavored vodka and it was warm. It was overall a terrible dinner and wouldn’t recommend.

    I can’t speak about the food or cocktails because we didn’t stay long enough to try any. We waited at the door for over ten minutes and no one acknowledged us or spoke. During this time we noticed a bad smell permeating the restaurant and only 1 waitress and 1 bartender for the entire dining room. The restaurant is between a Starbucks and what looks to be a closed restaurant on the other side. They hung curtains over both sides but you can still see the establishments through them. Overall due to the atmosphere, smell and lack of greeting we left and went down the street to Soho.

    Thank god we made a reservation, it's a smaller place that was all out of tables (except ours) when we arrived. The food was great, but the live music was very loud. The big issue we had, was we were charged for 6 glasses of wine when we only had 4. Waitress explanation was that we drank a bottle of wine, and that should be 6 pours. She only poured us 4 though - not our fault if she poured them bigger. We were tired, didn't want to fight, so just ended up paying the bill. We - and our friends won't be going there again.

    Only one server/ bartender was seen during our visit. There were only 4 tables occupied. Food was decent, but for a small menu they had run out of 3-4 items by 7pm. We settled on 2 different kinds of tacos. Drinks were alright, nothing that special. I tried one of thier Smoked Old Fashioneds. Presentation was cool, but they missed the orange peel and cherry which is 1/2 of the ingredients in an Old Fashioned..

    It looked closed. The front door said to use another door but the other available doors were a pizza place and an entrance to elevators. We called and left a message and started walking to find another place to eat ( we had taken an Uber to this restaurant since we were in vacation). About 15 minutes later they called and told me they were indeed open and which door to enter - the pizza place- We walked back and the place was empty except for 4 people at the bar. We said we were the ones for the reservation- without any acknowledgement that we had called or been walking for 1/2 hour- we were told they would see where they could seat us! The place was empty and it was 4:30 ! The food was creative - my steak was cooked the temp I asked it to be. My wife enjoyed her meal. The server was extremely pleasant and attentive. Very nice.

    We found the restaurant through open table, thought the menu sounded good, and had a kids menu, so we booked it. The place was nearly empty when we walked in. It’s a very nice looking bar, and was nearly silent when we arrived, so we were very concerned since we have 5 little ones. We were seated promptly, the only waitress was super friendly, and our food was tasty. The drinks were on point. The place filled up by the time we finished, and a guy was setting up for live music. The Gouda Mac n cheese is absolutely delicious!

    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.
