Myrtle Beach is a great place for a date at a romantic restaurant. From a VIP ride on the Skywheel to a stroll on the boardwalk, or a helicopter adventure and go cart race, there is no shortage of unique and enjoyable date night experiences. Sometimes, though, the perfect dinner can be the perfect date.
With hundreds of dining options on the Grand Strand, just making the decision of where to dine can be exhausting. To make your Myrtle Beach vacation planning easier, here are five flavorful eateries that make for a memorable date:
The Melting Pot
5001 N Kings Hwy Ste 104, Myrtle Beach, SC 29577
The Melting Pot is an American fondue favorite, with over 100 U.S. locations serving up an amazing menu in an atmosphere perfect for couples. The four-course experience is a great choice for date night, letting you linger over a paced meal. Start off with a cheese fondue appetizer with the option of “crafting” your own by pairing the cheeses with local brews courtesy of New South Brewery. After a salad, enjoy an entrée from a wide selection of choices, including filet mignon, lobster, duck breast, and much more. Vegetarian and gluten-free options are available as well. For dessert, amazing chocolate fondue dishes are highly recommended. The Melting Pot is conveniently located on Kings Highway.
