Date night is a special event for couples. Sure, you have your favorite go-to spots, but it’s always fun to try somewhere new. Whether you are a local or are here on vacation, here are some date night ideas in the Myrtle Beach area for you and your sweetheart to try.
Sea Captain’s House: If you love fresh seafood and a beautiful view, Sea Captain’s House is a must try for your next date. Located right on the beach, Sea Captain’s House gives your breakfast, brunch, lunch, or dinner together one of the most romantic backdrops there are. Popular dishes include their savory crab cakes, She Crab soup, shrimp and grits, and shrimp scampi. Want to feel the ocean breeze while you eat and drink? Dine on the outdoor patio, and finish your meal with a seat in one of the wooden bench swings where couples can sit nice and close and watch the waves together.
Travinia Italian Kitchen: If Italian is the only thing that will do, Travinia Italian Kitchen at the Market Common is sure to hit the spot. Enjoy classic Italian dishes like Chicken Parmesan and Lasagna Bolognese, or try Travinia’s twist on a Mexican favorite: the Italian Nachos appetizer. With a full bar and a new patio addition, you can dine and have drinks while people watching the Market Common’s busy sidewalks. Like live music? See Stevie Mac perform from 6-9 p.m. every Wednesday night while enjoying half off specialty martinis
The SkyWheel: Want to go beyond dinner and drinks for your next date? How about above? Then check out the SkyWheel on the Myrtle Beach Boardwalk. Snag a seat and get cozy while you climb high above the Myrtle Beach skyline, like real lovebirds. See the city like you’ve never seen it before, then your view switches to over the Atlantic Ocean, for an even dreamier scenery. Go during the day to see all the details, or go at night when the wheel is lit up and you can be under the stars. When your ride is over, take a trip down the Boardwalk for sight-seeing, shopping at the Gay Dolphin, sweet treats like ice cream and candy from I Love Sugar or Mad Myrtle’s Ice Creamery, a meal at restaurants like Bandito’s, LandShark, or Art Burger and Sushi Bar, or grab a drink at The Bowery or 8th Ave. Tiki Bar.
The Marsh Walk: The Murrells Inlet Marsh Walk has several date night options all in one spot. Stroll the half mile wooden boardwalk while taking in the view of the Inlet and grab a bite at your choice of waterfront restaurants: Bovine’s, The Claw House, Creek Ratz, Dead Dog Saloon, Bubba’s Love Shack, Drunken Jack’s, Wahoo’s Fish House, and Wicked Tuna. When you’re done eating, stay for live music and dance the night away.
Frank Theatres CineBowl and Grille: Make a whole evening of your next date night at CineBowl and Grille. Located in the Inlet Square Mall, CineBowl is a movie theatre, full bar, restaurant, bowling alley and arcade all in one place. Watch a movie or play a few rounds of bowling or arcade games. Then, satisfy your appetite with a meal of appetizers like nachos and loaded cheese fries, soups and salads, wings, pizza, fish tacos, burgers, or desserts like the molten cake or the cheesecake burrito. Have fun all night long without having to leave!
