SeaBlue Restaurant & Wine Bar: Tucked away in an unassuming shopping center, SeaBlue Restaurant & Wine Bar is a top-rated restaurant offers steak, seafood, and other gourmet meals in North Myrtle Beach. Diners here will love the beautiful interior as well as the always changing menu boasting items like USDA prime steaks, local fresh catch, White Peking Duck Breast, salads, and a variety of small plates. This is a must-visit while in North Myrtle Beach!

Martini: If you love live music along with classically delicious food, then Martini in North Myrtle Beach is one of the fine dining restaurants for you! This favorite restaurant offers nightly entertainment along with a menu packed with flavor. Here, you’ll find a long list of options, including pasta dishes, seafood, prime rib, beef dishes, chicken dishes, lamb, and more. 

21 Main: 21 Main at North Beach isn’t your typical resort restaurant; in fact, it’s much better than what you’d expect! This upscale eatery offers world-class dining in a charming Southern atmosphere. Start your meal off with an appetizer such as beef carpaccio or PEI mussels before moving onto an entree. The USDA Prime and Certified Angus Beef steaks are king here, but other offerings include pork, chicken, and seafood like the 21 Main Scallops (pan seared scallops with Romesco, parmesan risotto, and grilled portobello mushroom). 

Greg Norman Australian Grille: Located at Barefoot Landing in North Myrtle Beach, Greg Norman Australian Grille is one of the fine dining restaurants on this list with beautiful views of the Intracoastal Waterway. Open for brunch, lunch, happy hour, and dinner, Greg Norman Australian Grille offers mouthwatering menu options in a family-friendly atmosphere. For dinner, try the broiled escargot or teriyaki tuna appetizers before digging into a seafood dish like the lobster ravioli. Other entrees include a variety of salads, wood grilled ribeye, bourbon chicken, filet au poivre, and the slow-roasted 28-day-aged black Angus prime rib. 

Midtown Bistro: In the mood for Italian cuisine? Midtown Bistro is the place for you. This restaurant boasts a convenient location right off of Highway 17 in North Myrtle Beach. This is the only bistro in North Myrtle Beach, and is open for lunch or dinner. Italian dishes here include Tri Color Tortellini, Chicken or White Fish Piccata, Lasagna, Seafood Pomodoro, Veal or Chicken Parmesan, Eggplant Parmesan, Sausage and Peppers, and pizza. 

Joe’s Bar & Grill: After treating yourself to a shopping spree at Barefoot Landing, make your way to Joe’s Bar & Grill across the street. This fine dining restaurant offers indoor and outdoor dining for you and your family. Of course, you can begin your meal with an appetizer, soup, or salad. Joe’s only serves Certified Angus Beef, and all steaks are cut by hand every day in the restaurant. If you’re not in the mood for steak, try one of the seafood entrees, a chop, or a chicken dish like Chicken Joe’s (breaded and topped with sautéed mushrooms, tomato, scallions, and shallots in a soy valuta sauce over angel haired pasta). 

The Brentwood Restaurant & Wine Bar: Out of all the fine dining restaurants on this list, The Brentwood has a special reputation - it’s supposed to be haunted! While you can head over to this restaurant for a ghost tour, most people come here for the low country French cuisine. Their dinner menu may change daily, but you’ll always find classic Southern and French dishes like Duck a L’Orange, and Shrimp & Grits. You won’t want to leave without trying a dessert like their bourbon caramel bread pudding!

Chianti South: As one of Little River’s fine dining restaurants, Chianti South does not disappoint! This eatery has been serving up delicious Italian eats since 1997. Diners will find a menu featuring traditional and modern Italian recipes made with only the freshest ingredients. Begin your meal with Burrata Cheese or Prosciutto Di Parma E Melone and then move on to a salad before diving into an entree. House specialties include the signature veal chop Cotoletta Di Vitello; Ossobucco Di Vitello (veal ossobucco); Carre Di Agnello (four rib rack of lamb); and the Bistecca Al Ferri (16 oz New York strip steak). 

Bistro 90: Bistro 90 may be a little “out of the way,” but it’s definitely worth the trip to Longs outside of North Myrtle Beach. This bistro is home to USDA Prime Beef as well as the freshest seafood, chops, and classic Italian dishes. Along with your traditional Italian entree choices, Bistro 90 also offers a selection of steaks and chops as well as speciality brick oven pizza, calzones, and stromboli. 

The Parson’s Table: When you pull up to the Parson’s Table, don’t be fooled - while it looks like a church (it used to be one), it’s very much one of the area’s fine dining restaurants on the inside! This upscale restaurant is proud to offer cuisine sourced from sustainable, organic suppliers. The menu is full of gourmet American dishes, with appetizers such as the Charleston She Crab Soup and Local Fried Green Tomatoes, as well as an assortment of starters made with fresh seafood. Specialty entrees at The Parson’s Table include the Slow Roasted Prime Rib of Beef; Braised Beef Short Rib; Parmesan Encrusted Chicken; Pan Seared Duck Breast; New Zealand Rack of Lamb; and Weiner Schnitzel.
