When I come to Myrtle Beach we eat at the Conch Café every time... We always order the fish tacos which are some of the best that I have ever had and lets not forget the Conch Fritters.... I recommend that you make reservations and ask for seating out on the deck that way you get the amazing view of... More

We have eaten here a couple of times during out short stay at Surfside Beach. Both times we ate outside. Naturally, the view is awesome but the service and food are just as wonderful!!

We visit every year during our vacation. Have always loved the place. This year was bad. Waited an hour because we wanted an outdoor table, but as we were being seated it sounded like World War 3 started. A group began a fireworks barrage on the beach only 50 yes away. We tried to wait it out but it got... More

Stayed across the street. The food and service were generally good. The inside needs a serious clean, Robert Ervin would not approve. The ceiling fans had a noticeable amount of greasy does hanging off them. The carpet should have replace a long time ago. My wife had the seafood salad for lunch one day. It had fake crab, fake scallops... More

Location, location, location. That's what the Conch Café has going for it even when the food is lousy. Being the only beachfront restaurant in Garden City it's hard not to want to at least have a beer and an appetizer on the verandah before vacation is over. This year, we threw caution to the wind and decided to go there... More

Great location with the oceanfront views from the wonderful breezy deck gives you the right frame of mind for some solid seafood preparation from a broad menu. Grouper fingers were very good, with an OK version of Conch fritters as appetizers. Can vouch for the fried shrimp and oysters as well as the grilled Salmon which were all very good.... More

We have been going to this place for years, it seems to have survived being torn down and replaced by a giant high-rise condo. One of the only.. and I mean ONLY places in all of the Grand Strand where you can have lunch, dinner and everything in between on an open porch directly overlooking the beach. I recommend the...

We had been heading for different restaurant but could not find parking there. So kept driving when my 8 yr old says hey there is a good spot. Beach front dining pays for itself but the food was just as amazing. This is a hidden gem. Great selection of seafood

We went here on a whim since it was beach front. We had to wait a few minutes but pretty quickly got a table outside on the deck. You can't beat the view. The food was good and there was a lot of variety on the menu, including plenty of seafood as well as more traditional burger type options. The... More
