Top 5 Breakfast Restaurants in Myrtle Beach

The most important meal of the day also happens to be the most plentiful on the Grand Strand, where pancake houses and country cooking restaurants serve up hearty servings of breakfast every morning. Whether you’re hitting the golf course or the beach or planning a full day of shopping, there are plenty of places to fuel up before you start your day with a tasty breakfast. Here are five places you should visit on your next trip to Myrtle Beach:

Eggs Up Grill

This locally based chain is beginning to spread outside the Grand Strand region, and for good reason. Putting a new spin on the standard breakfast staple, the egg, this eatery’s menu is filled with unique options, such as breakfast sandwiches and creative omelets. Eggs Up also offers fresh fruit, pancakes and waffles and a nice lunch menu, but there’s question that the egg comes first at this establishment.

Hot Stacks

The name says it all at this local hot spot – huge stacks of pancakes dripping with melted butter and maple syrup and melted butter. But what makes this place special is its extensive and reasonably priced menu that can keep everyone in your party happy, especially when the check comes. In addition to all the traditional breakfast favorites, Hot Stacks makes some mean stuffed crepes and breakfast quesadillas.

Magnolia's at 26th

This Ocean Boulevard location is popular for its lunch and dinner buffet, but many don’t realize that Magnolia’s also put out a breakfast spread like no other. The buffet line is filled with scrambled eggs, bacon and sausage, fried potatoes, grits, gravy, biscuits and more, along with fresh fruit and pancakes on the side. Visit for Sunday brunch when Magnolia’s puts out breakfast and lunch at the same time.

Papa’s Restaurant

Guests at the Breakers Resort don’t have to look very far to find a hot fresh breakfast to start their day. Papa’s Restaurant, located on-site at the Breakers’ property, serves three delicious meals a day, including a hearty breakfast to help you fuel up before a busy day at the beach. Fresh fruits and juices, eggs made to order, hot flaky biscuits and ham, sausage and bacon are among the many items on the menu at Papa’s.

Sea Captain's House

This 60-year-old oceanfront restaurant may be famous for its seafood, but it also serves one of the best breakfasts on the beach. Watch the sun rise over the Atlantic while you feast on some of the Sea Captain’s classics, ranging from traditional Southern breakfast favorites to creative combinations that incorporate fresh seafood into the lineup, like the famous Shrimp and Grits, Seafarer’s Omelet and Crab Cakes Benedict.
