Dave & Buster's opened this past June in the previously occupied location of the Hard Rock Cafe pyramid, the new Dave & Buster's gives a different feel to the Celebrity Square district at Broadway. This spacious building contains a dining room, patio deck, sports bar and monster-sized arcade all under one roof, giving patrons plenty of room to follow the Dave & Buster's creed: "Eat, Drink, Play & Watch Sports!" Here's a quick preview of D&B's, plus a few other venues that are new to Broadway this summer:
* Dave & Buster's: The Grand Strand's first Dave & Buster's gives locals and visitors a chance to enjoy the ultimate sports bar/arcade experience. Regular visitors rave over the food selections, which range from traditional sports-pub fare of chicken wings, burgers and sandwiches, to healthier options like salads and wraps. The Short Rib & Cheesy Mac Stack and the Crispy Nashville-Style Hot Chicken platter are among the house favorites. Best of all, guests can wash it all down with a wide selection of beers, wines, creative cocktails and non-alcoholic drinks. The dining room and patio provide a more relaxed atmosphere for lunch or dinner, while the sports bar is filled with big-screen TVs and cheering fans.
Patrons may purchase an Eat & Play combo card to enjoy the food and the arcade, which has an amazing selection of games for everyone. From the latest in high-tech, virtual-reality games like Transformers, Dream Raiders and Raptor Captor to amusements more familiar with the older set such as Skee Ball, billiards and Mario Brothers, Dave & Buster's has all ages covered. In fact, D&B's has games you won't find anywhere else in town, including modern versions of retro classics like Galaga Assault and the world's largest Pac-Man machine, as well as arcade games inspired by popular mobile-phone apps such as Angry Birds, Candy Crush and Doodle Jump. All games give patrons credits on their cards that can be redeemed for prizes, and D&B's also offers daily food and drink specials and happy hour prices.
* Carolina Ale House: The brewpub craze continues to pour onto the Grand Strand scene, and this regional chain gives beer lovers another nice option in Myrtle Beach. Offering more than 60 draft beers, including major brands and small microbrews, Carolina Ale House has a full-service bar for cocktails, wine and non-alcoholic beverages, as well as an extensive menu of appetizers, wings, burgers, pizzas, tacos, steaks, ribs and the house special Zingers – crispy chicken fingers served in a wide selection of sauces.
Built on the former site of Planet Hollywood, Carolina Ale House brings a more laid-back sports bar experience to the table. The spacious bar, dining area and patio sections provide a relaxed and comfortable atmosphere for a friendly gathering or a family dinner.
* Paula Deen's Family Kitchen: Hey y’all, come on in and sit right down at this new family dining restaurant at Broadway. Named after the Queen of Southern Cuisine, Paula Deen’s Family Kitchen serves three meals a day in family-style fashion. Think of it as a buffet that comes to you and your party as servers deliver some of Deen’s favorite dishes to your table. Pass the platters around and enjoy country classics like smothered steak, fried chicken, home-style sides and more. Top it off with a tasty dessert and a refill of sweet tea.
The Breakers Myrtle Beach Resort also features new food and beverage options, with the new Strong Waters Craft Cocktails & Kitchen and a remodeled Papa’s Restaurant on site. Take your taste buds on an exciting vacation to Myrtle Beach and enjoy all that The Breakers Resort and Broadway at the Beach have to offer.
