I think everything at Brixx is good and it’s close by. Pizzas are buy one get one free after 10:00 pm every day. The pizzas are small so one person can almost eat a whole one. Happy Hour is Monday thru Friday 4-7 PM offering 1/2 price appetizers and $2.00 off drinks. Sunday is brunch pizza and 1/2 price wine.

Hoskins Seafood Restaurant is a local favorite. That is why when you go there will be a line down the sidewalk. But it moves very fast so don’t let that deter you. The restaurant has been in the same location and owned by the same family since 1948. There large shrimp and flounder are the best I’ve ever had. I get the large platter because the small is only about $2.00 less and I get a doggie bag. Good leftovers! It’s about 13 miles or a 20 minute drive, but lots to see and do along the way. Well worth the trip and fun to go in the shops in North Myrtle Beach.

River City Cafe is right on the corner of 73rd Avenue North and Ocean Blvd. You can walk from Sand Dunes. This is a place where you get free peanuts. I always get a hamburger but they must have a lot of good food as there’s always a crowd.

Okay we all know about Outback! What you may not know or have forgotten is their Walkabout Wednesday Special. On Wednesday, for $10.99 you pick between chicken or sirloin steak, a side and a drink. Tea, soft drink or a beer. They advertise it on there website but not in the restaurant so you just tell the waitperson you would like the Walkabout Wednesday. My husband always gets a side salad and I’m thinking it was around $3.00. I eat at the Outback down the road on Kings Road and have not had a bad steak and always cooked to perfection.

If you are thinking Mexican, I suggest the Fiesta Mexicana Restaurant located 1/2 mile down the road on the corner of Kings Road and 70th Avenue. In most instances, they are very crowded but it doesn’t take too long to get seated. Their food and drinks are excellent.

I have never been to Fire and Smoke but friends have told me they loved it. I wanted to tell you about it in case you were here for a special occasion and was looking for a nice local place to go. From the outside you’d never imagine what’s on the other side of the door as it’s located in a strip mall. But inside friends say it is quaint, lights low and white tablecloths. I checked it out online and you should too if interested. They have great reviews and are very close by.
