“Will Return Again and Again”
Reviewed May 20, 2014

We visited Conch Cafe twice during Myrtle Beach Bike Fest 2014, the first visit was Saturday evening. I ordered the frozen strawberry margarita which was really refreshing, I decided on calamari for my appitizer (fabulous, enough for two) and did not want to stop eating them even if I could not finish my dinner. The flounder sandwich was hugh and wonderfully fresh and so were the french fries, the only problem was the wait time on the food, for which they more than apologized. The second time was Wednesday evening and I ordered a "small seafood plate" (which, of course, was a lot of food) of shrimp and flounder and again the food was great, the service was a lot faster and just as great as the last time we attended the bike fest. Both times we ate inside instead of on the beautiful deck, but both areas of the restaurant had a fantastic view of the ocean.

“Dining on the beach with a good friend”
Reviewed May 13, 2014

My first visit to Garden City on a tour with a high school pal. Dining on the deck with the Atlantic ocean as our back drop was awesome. Cool breeze yummy food! The She Crab soup was delicious as was the appetizer sampler. Bacon wrapped shrimp was my fave! Will visit again!!

“Casual, Ocean View Dining, Pitchers & Spirits, Great Staff, Good Value!”
Reviewed May 9, 2014

We prefer dining on the big veranda in the back for its 180 degree view of Garden City Beach and the Atlantic Ocean. Suggest you start with a pitcher of beer or rum drinks and get the appetizer sampler: conch fritters, bacon wrapped grilled shrimp, grouper fingers and shrimp pasta salad. Enough for 4 people or meal for two--add a salad. They have great sandwiches--in fact, they make decent Reuben for South Carolina. All of the seafood is good--they emphasized the fried dishes but also have grilled or blackened. Flounder is always a good choice.

The interior dining area with adjacent is a bit dark, dated looking and cluttered. However, sometimes it's so windy or crowded you have to sacrifice the view and sit inside! Service gets better as season progresses - wait staff is friendly and accommodating.

“Enjoyable Meal on the Beach”
Reviewed May 5, 2014

My wife and I paid our first visit to The Conch Cafe today, and we're both very glad we did. It was a gorgeous day, and we were immediately seated outside on their patio, overlooking the ocean. Our server, Barbara, was very friendly and attentive. We both had their She-Crap soup, which was delicious. We chose sandwiches for our meal, and found our choices to both be wonderful, on very fresh bread, accompanied by delicious French fries and Cole Slaw, respectively. If you're in the area, this place is definitely worth a visit; you won't be sorry.
