Do you mean Ultimate California Pizza?

I would also like to add Nibils at the Surfside Pier. Do you agree?

2. Re: A locals restaurant recom. for any type of food!

Do you really think the burgers are that good at River City? I've tried them twice and both times they were very dry, chewy and almost tasteless. Personally I think Logan's Roadhouse has the best burgers of any place. I do agree with you on Lee's Inlet Kitchen and they have the best crab cakes I've ever had. Under the Italian heading you didn't mention Villa Mare (spelling) which I think is the best in town and mostly a locals spot. Yamamoto's quality has gone down hill in the last few years- we quit eating there.

Yes, I was refering to Ultimate California Pizza. I agree, Nibil's at the Surfside pier is excellent as well. I personally have always had great food at River City Cafe and honestly have never heard anything bad about there. I must admit it's been several months since I was last there. I haven't been to Logans yet, I'll have to check their burgers out. Thanks! The Italian restaurant is called Villa Romana (it is btwn 8th and 9th Ave S. on buiness 17). Wonderful food and it is owned by an Italian family. It has also been a while since I was at Yamatos but I was recently at Miyabis and it was excellent as always!

Anybobnmb- we tried Lattitude 22 in Surfside last beach trip and really liked it. Loved the location. I also really like Wahoo's and I know they are both owned by Divine Dining Group. Hot Fish Club in Murrell's Inlet is also one of my favorites.

I was actually going to put Latitude 22 on my list because I have heard great things about that restaurant but I have never been there myself so I could not give a personal recommendation. Thanks!

It's great to hear where the local folks go... We visit MB almost every year and can't miss Drunken Jack's or River City Cafe. I agree that Angelo's is a great family place.

Do you have any breakfast favorites? We do like the Captains House (staying next door at Caribbean next week) for breakfast but would like to try others.

I would add Angelo's to the great steak list. I know, it's an Italian restaurant (with so-so pasta) but the steak was among the best I've had at a restaurant (including high-priced steakhouses). Amazing flavor.

Another recommendation for Sea Captain's House, too.

Although I have never tried one myself, Angelo's advertises the "best steaks in the universe!" Have been hearing how great their steaks are. After all the bragging I have heard, plus yours, I have to try one. :-) Thanks!

Sea Captains House does have a fabulous breakfast! Chestnut Hill, in Restaurant Row does a wonderful Sunday Brunch (dinner is superb as well) but I'm unsure if they do an everyday breakfast. Although it's a chain, Cracker Barrel has a very good breakfast. Magnolia's Restaurant on 26 Ave N Ocean Blvd has great food! I know they do lunch and I'm almost positive breakfast, which is delicious. All are must tries.

Enjoy!
