Myrtle Beach Happy Hour Secrets

Great happy hour specials in Myrtle Beach are everywhere.

If you’re looking to go out to eat on a budget, happy hour in Myrtle Beach will be right up your alley. This past week, we found some of the best happy hour deals on good eats and great drinks in Myrtle Beach. (We were traveling with the grandparents, and this time of year the beach is overflowing with snowbirds but otherwise pretty empty. The perfect time to explore usually crowded locations).

Surfside Diner in Surfside Beach, SC

We love the view from The Surf Diner in Surfside beach.

My gin and tonic and I enjoyed the view from the Surf Diner’s deck on a sunny afternoon.

Although much of the pier is gone thanks to the season’s hurricanes, the deck of the Surf Diner is intact and perfect for enjoying a view of the rolling waves. Happy hour specials here include $1 off their well drinks, but make sure you ask if they are running any other specials too. And, get the flounder bites, for just $8 you’ll be glad you did! This is a great first stop if you want to explore the other venues that Surfside beach has to offer. There are a few other bars within walking distance, including Bubba’s Fish Shack where we had those really stellar wings.

Crepe Creation Cafe

A really, great happy hour venue in Myrtle Beach is The Crepe Creation Café located in the new Market Common. It’s the perfect location to grab a bite to eat and wander around the upscale shops. (We love it because its really close to the super, amazing Savannah’s playground which was amazing for our kids, but that’s for another post). Happy hour here is every day from 4-7pm and offers great drink specials as well as a really awesome happy hour food menu. We had dinner and served three adults (with beers) and two toddlers, for under $30. (Try the broccoli soup if you get a chance. It is so good!)

Portions are large and entire crepes and salads are offered a $5-6. Most nights they have live music starting at 6pm too! Although they did not offer us a kids menu, my little ones loved the soups and the Nutella and fruit crepe!

Tupelo Honey

Another great stop in the Market Common is Tupelo Honey. Happy hour is amazing here as well, but lets be honest, you need to go for the biscuits. (With 6 sticks of butter, per batch, their house made biscuits with fresh blueberry preserves and honey are to die for. Also, they come with your meal so they’re free. It doesn’t get better than free). **I performed an amazing feat of acrobatics here to catch the biscuit that Jellybean nearly threw on the floor. I couldn’t bear to let it go to waste.**

I had the $2 happy hour chicken BLT taco and also a cup of the tomato basil soup (it has a kick to it). Loved them both, although the soup is a little over priced at $5 for a VERY small cup.

My soup was so good…and so small.
Looks can be tricky. It seems like a big bowl, but you can see here it is only filled this deep on my spoon.

The kids menus here are great though, offering lots of fresh vegetable options and a really, excellent baked mac and cheese. (You know I’m a sucker for mac and cheese). In warmer weather their patio is dog friendly and they even have a dog menu on hand.

I did love the selection of tea available.

But, you cannot go wrong with $2 beers and $2 tacos. We went twice in the two weeks we were at the beach and I’d like to go back again on a Monday night when burgers are just $5.

Myrtle Beach with Kids

I love Myrtle Beach Vacations. It was a favorite vacation spot of my childhood and I am thrilled to be able to take my own kids now. Myrtle beach with kids is a different experience, of course, but it is still so much fun.
