I got a gift certificate to The Carolina Tavern from Restaurant.com for a family vacation after reading overall positive reviews. I figured that it would be worth a shot, and boy, was I glad that we decided to go here to eat! The atmosphere is very laid-back: casual and low-key, but the interior is nice and clean. We got to sit at a booth with a TV, which my kids thought was so cool. From the first moment of stepping foot in the restaurant, the hostess and server were very friendly. My husband and I both ordered the fried pickle burger, my daughter got the "Build your own" burger, and my younger children got kids meals. I was shocked at the size of the burger and the generous portion of hand cut fries. This was A LOT of food. The burger was absolutely delicious. As someone who would count a great burger as one of her top favorite foods, this burger may quite possibly be the best I have ever eaten. It was cooked perfectly, wasn't too greasy, and had a heaping pile of fried pickles (also delicious) on top. The fries were fresh, hot, and salted to perfection. My husband and daughter both loved their burgers, and my younger two (who got cheese pizza and mac and cheese) had huge portions that they chowed down on (with plenty of leftovers to take with us!) My burger was so huge, I couldn't even finish it, and I can usually easily wolf down a burger. I was even more shocked when we got the bill - it was ridiculously cheap! Our server was amazing. Our glasses were never empty, but she wasn't like some servers that just bother you during your whole meal. I'm so glad I took a chance with this restaurant. On our trip, we went to several more expensive restaurants and this was by far my favorite. I look forward to visiting on future trips to the Myrtle Beach area, and I HIGHLY recommend this restaurant to locals and tourists alike.
