We enjoyed dinner at this wonderful NMB restaurant when we were visiting last week. My wife and I enjoyed every bit of our dinner. We started with the fried stone crab claw appetizer. Wow, were they good. I could have eaten them all night. We ordered the croissants for our son and ended up eating most of the honey-drizzled gems.... More

We went to this restaurant last year and loved it. The house salad dressing is awesome and unique. The staff is professional, ensuring comfort and never ending drinks. The food is incredible. Nobody in my 7 person party could find fault in the food or experience. I strongly recommend the ribs. I talked about them all year to the point... More

Located right outside our hotel, we stopped for drinks and a snacks. My husband's red wine was off and they were very happy to open a fresh bottle and replace it. The shrimp cocktail were done perfectly, I'd stop there again.

The service was excellent and the food was even better. You cannot beat their bread. I'd go there just for that, but the steaks were well prepared, salad was awesome and the drinks were excellent. I would highly recommend this restaurant for an excellent meal.

Our group visits here at least once every time we vacation in North Myrtle. It's a somewhat nicer atmosphere than many of the restaurants in the area, but the prices and portions are more than reasonable. We enjoyed an order of the traditional and bbq chicken nachos to start. The teenagers in the group loved the traditional while we adults... More

As soon as we get to Myrtle Beach my kids ask me when are we going to California Dreaming. We usually go at least twice during our vacation in Myrtle Beach. The food is consistently good - the house salad is amazing and even my kid who does not eat salads at home get it. The baby back ribs are... More

I enjoyed the seafood platter with flounder and shrimp. It was delicious. The salad and rolls were also delicious.

Although we tend to shy away from "chain" restaurants, we do love CD! We got their BBQ chicken, chicken Parmesan, and the flounder. Everything was very, very good. And, of course, we love the croissants!

Never a bad experience here. The family always enjoys this place. Service is always good, the food selection is great, and the food is well prepared and always delicious! Definitely add to your list of places to eat while in Myrtle Beach.
