Does anyone else get frustrated when they visit a restaurant website and the menu doesn't include prices? Do restaurants not include them because they don't want to keep the prices up-to-date? Then a part of me thinks they don't include prices just so they can get us in the door. I don't like the "gotcha" feeling. I like to be a informed consumer.

That always screams to me, over priced and stay away. Good way to drive away business.

I think they do it so they don't have to keep changing their ever-increasing prices. Sometimes you can find a restaurant's menu with prices by googling: RestaurantName menu pricing.

I remember going to Dave's Dockside (Murrells Inlet, Marshwalk) some years ago, just after they had the entire restaurant remodeled. I looked at their online menu before we left the house, and knew what I wanted. Arrived at the restaurant where we were given a "new" menu. Everything was at least $3. more than the online version.

I'm with you folks... I was once publisher of Cuisine Grand Strand Magazine back in the early 80's. It was a Complete Menu and Dining Guide to Myrtle Beach distributed into hotel/motel rooms and the SC welcome centers and Chamber of Commerce offices. We reprinted restaurant menus and prices were included. It was well received. However, I feel the reason they do not include prices now is that they do change and restaurant owners hate to defend the fact that they change prices. Really, they do not want to go up in prices, but when the suppliers raise their price to the restaurant what else can they do. Myrtle Beach remains one of the more economical places to vacation in the USA! As Arthur Smith used to sing. "The East Coasts Favorite Vacation Land" Now do I sound like the Chamber of Commerce? We really do love it here and you can find great food bargains if you look for them.

I understand why the don't publish pricing on printed flyers/brochures, but with the ease of updating web pages these days they should be listed online. I'm with DBus.... if the prices aren't listed, I'm pretty skeptical unless I can find recent reviews with some sample prices (part of the reason I try to list prices in my reviews).

Myrtle Beach is about like anywhere else in the fact that if you want to find the best quality food for the right price then follow the places that the locals eat on a regular basis. I'm also skeptical of any place that doesn't post their prices on a website. I hate that because some of the places are so overpriced. Just because you have water view somewhere doesn't justify charging $35 for an average tasting plate of seafood.

I try to avoid places that don't publish the prices. It always screams "expensive" to me
