Joe's Bar & Grill - 810 Conway St, North Myrtle Beach, SC 29582 - http://joesbarandgrillonline.com/

My parents and I ate here twice during our trip to Myrtle Beach. It was my first time dining here. My parents have been here several times and it's one of their favorite restaurants in MB.

The restaurant was packed when we arrived. Ashley came over to take our drink menu and give us the complimentary crackers, butter, and cheese spread. When she returned with our drinks, she gave us piping hot bread. The bread was delicious and soft. I ordered the Chicken Oscar (chicken breast dredged in Oriental bread crumbs, sauteed and topped with crabmeat, asparagus and Hollandaise sauce) with rice and green beans. I also ordered a side house salad with bleu cheese dressing. The salad was fresh and the bleu cheese dressing was very yummy. My meal was perfect. The breading on the chicken was very light and the chicken was very juicy. The green beans were amazing. They're mixed in with tomatoes. I think that's the first time I ever ate my green beans BEFORE anything else on my plate. My mother ordered the Scallops Meuniere (sea scallops sauteed in lemon butter and seasonings) with green beans and rice. The scallops were cooked perfectly and very big. My dad ordered the Filet Neptune (tenderloin medallions topped with crabmeat, shrimp, and scallops topped with Bearnaise sauce) with green beans and potatoes. His steak was cooked perfectly and the seasoning on the potatoes was fantastic. Overall it was an excellent meal. We practically licked our plates clean. We also got desserts to go and those were delicious as well.

The only complaint I have is that the tables are too close together. If there are tables on either side of yours, you feel like everyone can hear your conversation. There was a couple to the left of us on a date and I kind of felt like we were intruding on their conversation because we were so close.

Ask for Ashley as your server! She's so polite and attentive. The service and food were excellent. We will return!

Love your pictures! One of our favourite spots. They have great Early Bird specials too.

So glad you had a great experience there. We tend to look more for Happy Hour/ Early Bird specials so have not had a meal there. But it looks delicious and I'll keep it in mind. Thanks for the review!

There's a 2nd bar (in addition to the main bar) overlooking the marsh with an area called "racoon cove" where the 'coons play and entertain everyone. They are really cute to watch, and I guess it doesn't take much to entertain me! :clown: (Except when they show up in our back yard.)

One of our favourite spots. It is tucked away behind The Olive Garden on hwy. 17 in North Myrtle Beach. Most folks are not even aware it is there. They have great early bird specials ranging from $12.99-$14.99 and you usually have to ask for the Early Bird menu. Dave usually gets the prime rib but I LOVE the seafood pasta. Table cloths, cloth napkins and we have always had good service. The Early Bird specials are from Sunday-Thursday so one must keep that in mind. They open at 4:30 and that is when we go as it is a very small place and gets busy quickly. A hidden gem.

Lemon Chicken Orzo soup with crackers - Delicious!

Image
Side salad with bleu cheese dressing - Fresh greens and veggies and the dressing was yummy, too!

Image
Chicken Parmesan (sauteed chicken breast baked with mozzarella and parmesan cheese, with marinara over linguini) with seasonal veggies - The chicken was juicy. Linguini and marinara was good and I loved the side of parmesan cheese. The veggies were definitely frozen bag, but were still good.

Not pictured:
Bread - Hot and fresh
Plate of crackers and cheese - Good
Rib-Eye with Bearnaise sauce, with potatoes and seasonal veggies - Delicious
Petite Filet Mignon (center cut Filet char-grilled with Bearnaise sauce), with a side salad, seasonal veggies, and potatoes - Delicious
2 Filets with crab meat and Bearnaise sauce, with a side salad, seasonal veggies, and potatoes - Delicious

Five of us dined here on a Friday night at 6pm. I was happy we had reservations because the restaurant was crowded. Service was good, but our server talked so loud. The restaurant wasn't loud at that time so every table in the restaurant looked over as she talked to us. Eventually, every table was taken occupied and the room was very loud. You felt like you had to shout to the person next to you to be heard. Also, the tables are a bit too close together, so there's a good chance the staff or diners will accidentally hit the back of your chair as they walk by.

The only slight disappointment was that my mom and dad's steaks were butterflied. They like their steaks medium-well (I know, I know!) and the server never mentioned to us that they would be butterflied. My dad's steak looked okay, but my mom's steak looked like a flattened hockey puck. She brought it to the servers attention and she pretty much shrugged it off. She came back about 5 minutes later and said "For the next time you come here, just tell us you don't want your steak butterflied and they won't." It came off a bit rude, even though I don't think that was her intention. We ordered two desserts for the table. I can't remember the exact name, but it was some sort of chocolate cake and it was divine. We pretty much licked the dessert plates clean.

Overall, we will definitely return, as this restaurant is one of our favorite places to eat in the area. Reservations are strongly recommended for Friday and weekend dining.

We always make at least one trip here when down for the winter. I love their seafood pasta. We have never been when overcrowded however we go off season and dine early. They have great early bird specials. Thanks again for the pictures.

Joe’s Bar and Grill | 810 Conway St, North Myrtle Beach, SC 29582 | http://joesbarandgrillonline.com/

This was our favorite meal of the week!! We made reservations for 6pm on a Thursday. We had to park in the lot across the street behind the ice cream and coffee place. The parking lots were packed. We were seated right away. It took a little while for our server to come over but once he did, he was attentive and polite. We always had refills and empty plates were always cleared. Our food took a while to come out, but it is made to order, so that’s to be expected. The only negative (and I say this every time I review this restaurant) is that the tables are way too close together. It’s always been like that, but they really pack you in like sardines. I feel bad for the servers and bussers who have to navigate through the labyrinth of chairs and tight spaces. You feel like you’re sitting on top of each other. It can also get very loud once the room is filled up. Overall, we loved our meal and the service. We will definitely return. This is one of our favorite restaurants in the area.

My aunt, uncle, and mom all ordered the filet mignon (6oz petite), red skin potatoes and veggie medley. All three enjoyed. My aunt said her steak was so tender that she could cut it with a fork. All the steaks were cooked perfectly.

Image
Crackers, cheese, butter. We enjoyed these.

Image
Side salad with blue cheese. Fresh, dressing was delicious. The salads have quite a bit of dressing on them, so I would suggest requesting it on the side if you don’t like a lot of dressing.

Image
South African Lobster Tail (10-12oz, broiled in lemon butter) with rice and veggie medley. It was expensive ($60) but my dad felt it was worth it. Our server de-shelled it in front of our table. The lobster was delicious and sweet. He liked the rice and veggies.

Image
Pasta of the Day with Chicken. The sauce was like a rose cream sauce but very light. There was a lot of chicken throughout. I loved it. The portion was huge and I had plenty to take home.

Image
Filet Mignon (6oz petite), red skin potatoes, veggie medley. My mom thought it was seasoned well and it was cooked perfectly. She loved the potatoes and veggies.

Image
Side of vegetable medley. I liked the mix of veggies. Everything was fresh and cooked soft.

Not pictured:
- 2 Filet Mignon (6oz petite), red skin potatoes and veggie medley’s. My aunt and uncle loved everything. My aunt said her steak was so tender she could cut it with a fork.

One of our favourites too! The tables are pretty crowded together. We have eaten on the porch a few times and liked it out there. Not as noisy. I love the little patio area outside with the fireplace. We always say we are going to go over there for an after dinner drink but are to full. One day. Thanks for sharing.
