Fine art might not be the first thing that comes to mind when you think of a beach vacation, but that’s just what you’ll get when you visit Collector’s Cafe. This seafood restaurant doubles as an art gallery, featuring paintings, sculptures, and drawings created by local artists. You can enjoy a cup of gourmet coffee while discussing the works on display, then move to the dining area to enjoy some of the freshest seafood available. Lobster, lump crab, and yellow fin tuna feature prominently on the menu. If you’re not a seafood fan, prime rib and other American favorites are also on the menu.

New York Prime

Depending on where you live, seafood might not play a prominent role in your local cuisine. In Myrtle Beach, though, seafood is everywhere – it’s difficult to walk even a block in many areas of the city without finding a seafood buffet or other seafood restaurant. If you’ve grown tired of the standard local fare and have a craving for a good steak, New York Prime is the place to go. You can enjoy a hearty New York strip, porterhouse, T-bone, or just about any other cut of aged beef you could imagine. Choose a gigantic baked potato or a generous serving of sauteed onions and mushrooms to complement your steak. New York Prime also features an extensive list of wines to enjoy with your meal.

The Library

With selections like strip au poivre, filet mignon and lobster, and duck l’orange, there are plenty of delicious options for everyone in your traveling party. Specialty beers, vintage wines, and rare champagnes are also available. Of course, you should plan on taking care of an exorbitant bill after your meal; however, if you’re going to enjoy one lavish dining experience during your trip, this is the place to do it.

Sea Captain’s House
