Low Country | Myrtle Beach, Myrtle Beach

My wife and I had a wonderful brunch as our last meal while visiting Myrtle Beach. Our waiter was outstanding. My wife’s eggs came up too well done and we said it wasn’t a big deal since mine were a bit under of what I preferred and so we just switched. Nevertheless they apologized and even gifted us a fee piece of cake - thank you! We will definitely come back during our next visit to the area. More

Discover South Carolina

Charleston takes southern charm to a whole new level. In fact, the city snagged the #1 spot on Travel & Leisure’s World’s Best Cities list in 2016. The combination of elegant historic architecture, cobblestone streets, balmy weather, and southern cuisine makes it a winner. Along the South Carolina coast, the resort towns of Myrtle Beach and Hilton Head are full of restaurants serving Atlantic seafood and new American specials. Further inland, Greenville is gaining a reputation for being a burgeoning restaurant hub of the south.
