Two local couples, both Myrtle Beach locals, started a project on 9/13/07. Our goal was to visit a local restaurant, preferably one that was new to us, and eat our way from A to Z! We didn't set a time limit, and we ate together at other restaurants along the way. The project was completed 8/20/10. And we're doing it all over again!
Here's a short synopsis, with price ranges from $ to $$$ Reviews by GARY.
Steaks have been very good in the past buurt on this visit the steaks were was just so-so.
Always my favorite seafood restaurant. Love the Bang-Bang Shrimp and Seafood Chowder. The mussels are excellent. Fresh fish of the day everyday.
Too pricey for what we got.
Pass this one up.
This is a Thai restaurant. The food is very good. Portions are a little light for the price. Say HI to Calvin.
Too pricey for what we got.
Gulf Steam Cafe
Gulf Stream has the absolutly best location for cocktails, appetizers and sunsets. Their biggest problem is the menu doesn't change. Salads used to be included but now are extra.
What can I say...the food is outstanding !
Islamorada Fish House
This was a fun restaurant. Nice choices of appetizers and light dining.
Joe's Crab Shack
Key West Grill
Liberty Steak House
The burgers were very good.
Basic Italian fare, but, ummm good. Didn't order the pizza but after seeing the other diners, wish we had.
Old World Italian
Basic Italian served family style. Food was very good. Nice family atmosphere.
Ummm Ummm good. Gotta get the lettuce wraps

Roy and Sid's
My wife became ill after her dinner.
Salt Creek CafÃ©

T-Bonz (near Broadway at the Beach)
Yes! Best priced apps in town. $4.95. Beer is $2.50. Wine is $3.00. Happy Hour lasts until 8:00.
Umburto's (Barefoot Landing)
Tonight we dinedâ. We didn't eat, we dined. The food was exquisite and the service was terrific. All entrees are served with a white bean appetizer, salad and an angel hair pasta with marinara sauce....then came the dinner. We had chicken/veal marsala, veal/eggplant parmigiano and chicken Umberto with artichoke hearts and black olives. Despite all of this, all but one finished their meals.
Vienna's Cafe (Murrells Inlet)
If you enjoy pre-made, iceburg salads and over-cooked pasta, you'll love Vienna's Pizzeria. The service was barely adequate. We had to ask for our bread. The entrees were delivered while we were still "enjoying" our salads. This restaurant didn't make the worst of our alpha restaurants, but was close to it. Our entrees included Lasagna, Eggplant Parm and Linquini with Vegetables.
Restaurant is located in the Marina Inn at Grande Dunes. Fairly typical for a hotel restaurant. We ordered Mahi Mahi fish tacos, blackened Talapia and a combo plate of lump crab, chicken and cheese quesadillas. All meals were good and flavorful. Presentation was nice. Setting was enjoyable, should be especially so when outdoor seating is available.
X - No X restaurants could be found.
Typical Hibachi style restaurant. Fast service where all the food tastes the same. The "chefs" seem all go to the same school to learn how to chop, burn and and toss food.
Zaxby's (On the Beach)
OK - this was the best ever. Zaxby's "ON THE BEACH". Good food, good service, GOOD FRIENDS !! We all had a Zaxby's salad - 2 Asian, 1 Caeser and 1 Blue. Flavors were all very good. Zaxby's plated the salads in plastic containers which were perfect for the beach. They provided cutlery and napkins. Sitting on the beach with good friends and bottles of wine made for a perfect evening and a perfect end to our Alphabet Tour. Time to start all over again!
