Myrtle Beach hosts some of the coolest and most fun restaurants you’ll go to. Here we will go over just a few, there are way too many to list! First, RipTydz Oceanfront Grille & Rooftop. Oceanfront and rooftop are not an understatement here. This restaurant is right on the beach, features 3 different dining areas (main dining area, one with an oceanfront view, and a boulevard dining area) and a rooftop bar with live music nightly and outdoor games like cornhole and giant Jenga! Besides all that, it has magnificent food and drinks! Next is Wicked Tuna; this restaurant offers spectacular ocean views and even better seafood. Spend a day on the beach then walk right up to Wicked Tuna to enjoy a specialty app with your travel companions in the air conditioning and watch the other beachgoers.
