 - Myrtle Beach, SC

The beloved Sea Captain’s House in Myrtle Beach has been serving fresh seafood to hungry customers for over 50 years, and the locally famous restaurant has decided to make a few changes to the establishment. For 2017, the folks at Sea Captain’s House agreed on sprucing up the restaurant that is loved by locals and vacationers from all over.

While changes are still occurring at Sea Captain’s House and will be for about another month or so, we sat down with General Manager Sheryl Saito to get the scoop about what’s going on.

Renovations at Sea Captain’s House include exterior and interior changes that keep the classic spirit of the restaurant alive, while brightening things up a little.

•The exterior of the Sea Captain’s House has been completely repainted, and a new fence has been put up for beautification. The outdoor front lawn has been changed to make it more attractive and accessible to customers. A new sign has also been ordered, but won’t arrive for another 4-6 weeks or so.

•The interior of the restaurant has been completely repainted, and all carpet has been replaced with hardwood flooring.  Tables and chairs throughout the restaurant will be replaced in about 4-6 weeks, and the Carolina Room will get banquettes, new lighting, and artwork.

•In addition, all three fireplaces are now working, providing a comfy ambiance and warmth during the cooler months. The bar area will also be seeing changes soon, as the current furniture will be replaced with high tables and new chairs. Kitchen staff members are also very happy with new equipment and fresh paint.

•Sea Captain’s House provides beautiful views of the Myrtle Beach oceanfront, and guests can enjoy eating outside on beautiful days on the newly renovated patio. The patio has been expanded with new pavers all the way to the building, providing more space for guests and live music on select days.

Head on over to Sea Captain’s House to see the changes now, or in about a month or so, and enjoy delectable meals made with fresh seafood, fresh fruit, and always the freshest ingredients around.

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

 - Myrtle Beach, SC

Now that spring weather has arrived on the Grand Strand, along with it comes droves of visitors looking to celebrate the annual rite of passage known as Spring Break. 2017 in Myrtle Beach is a great year to visit, as there are plenty of new things to check out, and as always many of the area’s bars, clubs and nightlife spots are rolling out the red carpet to cater to spring breakers looking for a good time.

Of course, our area has been a haven for bikini-clad partiers for many years, but recently Myrtle Beach has racked up a few endorsements from those in the know. A couple of years ago, DatingAdvice.com listed us #5 on its list of “19 Sexiest Spring Break Destinations” citing places like Hotel Blue among the sexiest places to stay and placing the Grand Strand above popular spring break spots like Daytona Beach and Fort Myers on its list.

Also getting in on the act Coed.com has rated Myrtle Beach #3 on its list of “America’s Top 20 Trashiest Spring Break Destinations.” Although this may sound like a bad thing, when you realize “trashiest” is really just code for “most fun” it’s no wonder or warm water, cheap drinks and selection of activities got us ranked above places like Virginia Beach, Destin and South Padre Island. 

Even the readers of USA Today got in on the fun, by voting Myrtle Beach #1 in the 10 Best Readers’ Choice Poll for “Best Spring Break Destinations.” Recognized by readers for its family-friendly atmosphere — a testament to the fact that the area can be both fun for families and party people — Myrtle Beach beat out nominees such as Cabo San Lucas, Mexico,Cancun and Montego Bay, Jamaica.

But regardless of whether you and your crew are looking to go completely wild and party or just enjoy a few days of beachfront relaxation and enjoy some of the best things to do, there’s plenty ways to enjoy Spring Break 2015 in Myrtle Beach.

Here’s a look at some of the best parties, bars and nightlife places to check out this spring break:
