While staying in Garden City in October, we ate at the Conch Cafe twice - our daughter-in-law's birthday and then later in the month with our daughter. It was breezy on the deck, our favourite spot, for lunch. The tuna dish was a bit overcooked, but the appetizers and drinks were very good. For the dinner, it was a bit... More

The food is great and the view is amazing. They are right on the beach with a great porch for outdoor seating. Enjoyed a combo seafood platter. The grouper was amazing. Well worth the stop.

This is one place that I know my wife and I will come back to. The she crap soup is the best. The service was great. The view, the drinks.....I could go on and on.

We were able to walk to the Conch Cafe from our condo at the Channel Marker. We decided to visit the Conch on a Friday night for prime rib. The main entrance from the parking lot and beach was closed off due to hurricane Matthew. Guest were able to use the ramp to the outdoor seating and walk into the... More

Another of our trips to the Conch Cafe, the final for this year since they close for the season. We love this place and today's large seafood platter was the best we have had yet. The fried oysters, shrimp, scallops, and fish were ALL fresh and cooked to perfection. The batter is seasoned just right giving a great flavor to... More

Once again we ate at the Conch Cafe on the deck with a view. The seafood is always large servings hot and delicious! The servers are always attentive and friendly! The view is ocean front with a light breeze! Love this place my only regret is on Saturday October 22 they are closing for the season! Wish they were open... More

This is a beach lunch at its best. Great creative seafood sandwiches, wonderful tropical drinks and do not forget the she crab soup. Did I mention you are dining on the beach. What more could you possibly ask for. If you are visiting Myrtle Beach don't miss this special spot.

We love the Conch Cafe - and after 20 years always find time to visit during our stays in SC. We love the location, daily specials (seafood stews are awesome), and the staff. We usually have lunch at the bar - fun for banter and also to receive excellent service from Barb, Barb, and Beth. The crab cakes are authentic... More

Hoping Matthew did not damage this great spot. Our favorite place to eat along this area of the Grand Strand. We love to do lunch outside on the porch. Good food and frozen drinks. Been going here for twenty years!
