The summer is coming to an unofficial close soon, which means the fall season is upon us. In Myrtle Beach, we're rejoicing because us locals know September and October only as "the greatest time of year." The weather is still beautiful, ocean waters are warm, the beaches are lovely, and, for our visitors, accommodations are even more affordable.


Fall also has us dreaming of the warmth, familiarity and deliciousness of comfort food, which is served up and down our 60 miles of coastline right along with our Southern hospitality. Here are some of the Myrtle Beach area's very best comfort dishes, pulled from our list of the 60 Best Bites from the area:

  1. Deep-fried Deviled Eggs: Deviled eggs will always have a place at the table, as far as we're concerned. But then Frank's went ahead and deep-fried them and topped it off with jalapeno and bacon.
  2. Crab Cake Benedict: Fresh seafood is synonymous with Myrtle Beach, so we shouldn't be surprised to see it crop up on breakfast menus. Johnny D's does it right, serving up a grilled crab cake on an English muffin, Benedict style. And if seafood for breakfast isn't your thing, Johnny D's is actually best known for its delicious pancakes and waffles. Take your pick.
