There are a lot of things going on in the Myrtle Beach, South Carolina area to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day this year, including a parade that will include parts of Main Street in North Myrtle Beach. There are many great Irish pubs and restaurants in our area so I would like to highlight a few in this article that get top billing in my book.
Pat & Mike’s Irish Pub & Restaurant
Located: 1359 Highway 17, Little River SC (843)249-7145
There is always something exciting going on at Pat & Mike’s. With live entertainment EVERY night and delicious food in a friendly atmosphere, there’s no better place to relax and have a good time. They offer a lunch menu from 11AM – 4 PM and Dinner from 4PM – 10PM. The Lounge is open until…..
All of the items of the menu are reasonably priced with the most expensive thing being the Surf & Turf: 10oz Strip Steak & 4 Jumbo Fried Shrimp with Baked Potato and Fresh Vegetables for $17.95. There are so many wonderful starter and entrees to choose from, O’Malley Fish Sandwich is great if you’re not looking for a large meal. You could always try the delicious Shepherd’s Pie with Seasoned Ground Beef or Steak Jameson. Pat & Mike’s offer a monthly special on the 17th of each month, Corned Beef and Cabbage for just $9.95 with live entertainment every night who could top that deal?
Molly Darcy’s Irish Pub & Restaurant
Located: 1701 S. Ocean Blvd, N. Myrtle Beach (843)272-5555
This is a very cool restaurant. It is located right on the beach. You can literally walk up to their outdoor dining area from the beach. There is a live DJ Thursday through Saturday nights for your entertainment and the food is simply amazing. From the lunch menu you may select the fried calamari for starters. There are many sandwiches to select from and Bangers and Mash. They offer an all day Irish Breakfast including: fried eggs, rashers, bangers, black and white pudding, chips, baked beans and grilled tomatoes for only $13.95. The dinner menu is quite extensive but the most expensive item was the Steak and Shrimp, 12 oz. NY Strip topped with grilled teriyaki glazed shrimp and served with mashed or baked potato and vegetable of the day for $23.95. Entertainment is in no short supply at Molly Darcy’s either, inside there are pool tables, video games and a competitive game of darts. Wonderful place by the sea.
Flynn’s Irish Tavern
Located: 241 Main St N. Myrtle Beach (843)249-6533
This is a nice little unexpected treat right in the heart of North Myrtle Beach. Opening at 4pm each day and offering a menu of delights. Everything from shrimp cocktail and crab stuffed mushrooms for starters to Irish Onion soup or Irish Potato soup. They have a large selection of Irish whiskey and the owner/operator being Irish helps you get the feel and flavor of good ole Ireland. On March 14 there will be a St. Patrick’s Day Parade and festival that will include Main St. in North Myrtle Beach, passing right by Flynn’s. There will be all day live music at Flynn’s so stop by and help them celebrate the day.
Blarney Stone’s Irish Pub
Located: 1320 Celebrity Circle, Broadway at the Beach, Myrtle Beach (843)626-6644
Always a party at Blarney Stone’s with live entertainment Thursday through Saturday and Happy Hour 4 -7 daily. It is a real festive atmosphere all the time. They offer a wonderful fruit and cheese board for two and world famous Blarney Beef tips. There are lots of sandwiches to select from as well and of course the Jameson New York Steak. Prices are reasonable. Blarney Stone’s has an upstairs Martini and Cigar bar for all interested. Great place to mingle and get to know people in the area.
Finn McCool’s Irish Pub and Eatery
Located: 501 Lake Arrowhead Rd Myrtle Beach (843)449-7616
Open 11:30 until this is a great place with some interesting food options. You should try the Pot O’ Gold soup or Finn’s Combo Appetizer. There are many menu selections including wings and Greek salad O’Grady. This restaurant doesn’t offer all the frills of some of the other offerings, but I think you will be surprised at how great the food is and how reasonable the prices are. So for a touch of the Irish give Finn McCool’s a try.
