Service was fast and the view was outstanding. We ate here twice because of the convenience being right on the beach and close to where we were staying. Waitresses were very friendly and staff jumped in to help when we were sitting outside and the rain started pouring down. The food is pretty plain pub/burger joint food. We ordered the... More

This is the first time I've been to this restaurant since it has changed hands, and I have to say, I was pleasantly surprised. I was looking for somewhere with a view, on the water, close to home, and good food. After reading other's reviews on here, I figured I'd give the Surf Diner a shot. Not the cheapest of... More

I have been here several times. I love their club sandwich, it is huge and delicious. Fries are good, burgers are good. The view is right on the beach and pier so you are looking down the beach at all the people enjoying the day. It is also nice to have a place on the beach that you can walk... More

Fun casual atmosphere. They had live music playing while we sat on their deck eating good food looking at the ocean. What more could you ask for in a location. If you go straight from the beach, be sure to have a cover-up/shirt. You can't just wear your swimsuit, which adds a modest touch of class to a very fun... More

We go to Myrtle beach ever 2 years and every time we loved having breakfast at Nibbles. The name may have changed, but the great breakfast has not. I love the great egg platters but ALWAYS have to add the country ham. This is the place place to go for a hearty breakfast!

If you like a view this is it. So grab a drink at the walk up bar & enjoy the view! If you want to dine this place has outdoor seating so can have a view with breakfast lunch or dinner.

Brilliant seasoned chef that knows better is your guide. This place is one of the better places to eat in Surfside. Menu is fantastic with culinary edge. Prices are low,low for what you get. Atmosphere is ocean view on rustic pier ---with new awesome deck and tables so beat that. The only down side is that some of the waitresses... More

We had lunch there twice and breakfast 3 times during our trip. It opens at 7:30am so we would wake up, watch... More

We are staying in walking distance of the Surfside pier, and decided to walk to breakfast. The service was excellent, the breakfast was as good as anywhere (except grandma's). We will probably take that breakfast walk a few times this week. Will let you know if we try Lunch or Dinner
