With the sand at your feet, seafood will most likely be on your mind. The nearly 2,000 restaurants on the Grand Strand boast all types of seafood, whether you're seeking a buffet or a more intimate dining spot. The summer months see an influx of visitors, so waits at popular restaurants can reach up to an hour or more. To avoid long waits, take advantage of early-bird dinner specials, make a reservation, or opt for takeout. Many spots oblige with free delivery to hotels or offer gourmet takeout boxes.
