The service was excellent andthe food was very good. we ordered the martini of the Razzle Dazzle . It was delicious. 3 of us (party of 5) ordered the shrimp and grits. The shrimp was tennder and the sauce very rich. Mixed reactions about grit cake. Regular grits may be better. Porkchop was tender. Grouper was good but felt sauce too thick but good flavor. The food was cooked well. Would visit again.

I love this restaurant. The food is excellent. There are many choices in Myrtle Beach to spend your money directly a good steak. I don’t need to list them here as you can check it out yourself. With that being said, Fire and Smoke is always at the top of my list. Great service, the ambiance is second to none and the smoked bourbon drinks are awesome. Keep up the great work!!

Farm-to-table
Myrtle Beach
About the restaurant
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!

About the restaurant
The newest restaurant at Kingston Resorts showcases the best local fare in a comfortable setting. All 40 beers on tap come from the states of North and South Carolina and the entire menu is Carolina born and brewed. Share small plates and appetizers, try fresh seafood, and house-smoked meats while enjoying ocean views. Order a craft beer at the outdoor beer garden and play favorite yard games such as cornhole in the new event space.

Above the restaurant, find a new event space with high ceilings, exposed wood beams, and floor to ceiling retractable windows with ocean views and an upper balcony for outdoor weddings, receptions, and events overlooking the new pool.

Walk-in guests are always welcome!

We had a fabulous experience at Black Drum Brewing. The food was amazing, the service was fantastic, and the beers were awesome. Our server Tristyn was excellent and gave us sample drafts and great advice on our food selections. The chicken thigh sandwich was huge and delicious, and the pulled chicken dinner was great. The best side was the mac and cheese, and it was creamy and had a fabulous topping on it. We will definitely be back!
