Description: Located on Main Street in the Ocean Drive section of North Myrtle Beach, Flynn’s Irish Tavern is a locals favorite and a must stop for annual and first time visitors to the Grand Strand. Just a short walk from the wide sandy beaches and first class accommodations of Ocean Drive, and a short ride from the many championship golf courses that populate the north strand. Flynn’s is a perfect place to enjoy a pint or two after a day on the beach or the golf links.Flynn’s is owned and operated by the Flynn Family and the authentic look and old country feel of the establishment comes from Marty’s place of birth, County Roscommon, Ireland. The tavern is housed in the former North Myrtle Beach jail, in fact, the jail cells are still here and tours are given upon request.

“Good but pricey for bar food”
Reviewed March 13, 2013

They have Smithwick's on draft. It's probably my favorite ale. Their hamburgers are good but at $8.00 per burger. The staff is sparse but friendly. Since it is a popular place among the locals, it can take a whille to get waited on.

“Friendly Bar -- but not a #1”
Reviewed March 7, 2013

Don't see this being No. 1 on Trip Advisor after our amazing meal at Joe's Bar & Grill last night. The people at the bar were very friendly except for the bartender. Maybe he was too busy, don't know. I had the Shepherd's Pie. It was good but the mashed potatoes were just a clump in the center. Needed more. No rolls or anything else to go with it. My husband just had the Potatoe Soup. He does not like soup that is just pureed with no chunks of potatoes.

Would go back but -- no way a No. 1.

“The corned beef is the best we've ever tasted, awesome!”
Reviewed March 2, 2013 via mobile

Wish this place was nearer Florence because we would be here all the time. We never try any other entree on the menu because the corned beef is so delicious and the portion size very generous!! The she-crab soup is pretty tasty too! We come to North Myrtle beach primarily to visit this restaurant after a walk on the beach!!!

“Fun -- and Good Food”
Reviewed February 26, 2013

I always visit Flynn's when I'm in the Myrtle Beach area -- at least four times a year. The food is very good and reasonably priced. The menu is varied whether you are looking for a complete meal or a sandwhich/snack. (Love the homemade chips.) The owners and staff are extremely pleasant.

There's live entertainment in the bar on weekends.

The dinning room is a great place for families to gather.
