Two Wineries Serve Great Tastes & More At Broadway At The Beach

Posted in Dining

Do you enjoy experiencing different wines? Would you like to learn more about the wine-making process and sample several wines along the way? Are you adventurous enough to try wines that are untraditional or unusual?

In one afternoon at Broadway at the Beach, you can visit two wineries, experience wines you love and discover new tastes.

Savoring an enjoyable glass of wine can be one of the high points of any day. But selecting a new wine to try or serve to guests can be challenging. A guided wine tasting can introduce you to new favorites in categories you enjoy or surprise you as you discover a new taste that delights you.

At Coastal Carolina Winery, you can enjoy a wine tasting of seven different wines. Wines are also served by the glass and the bottle. Wine slushies are offered as special treats.

A trip to this winery doesn't have to be adults only. The kids can enjoy a non-alcoholic blueberry slushy and join you as you learn how wine is made. The whole family can explore the wine tanks, bottle machine and see how the bottles are corked.

At Coastal Carolina Winery, there are also unique wine-related souvenirs, tee shirts, and handmade Carolinas pottery that will dazzle you with its artistry. Foodies will enjoy sampling items from the winery's own selection of chutney, salad dressings, sauces and dips.

Over at Boardwalk Winery, charming wine labels highlight special types of wines that will evoke memories of warm days and cool evenings at the beach. This small, gourmet winery specializes in wines that (as the winery staff likes to say) are a "vacation in a bottle."

Wines here range from dry to sweet. Traditional white and red wines are offered, but you won't want to miss the chance to taste the unique flavors of their fruit wines like blackberry and mango-peach blends.

Their wine tasting room provides opportunities to sample special wines with irresistible names like "Endless Summer," "Ocean Breeze," "Cruzin," and "Summer Nights."

And, if you're from out of town or want to send a gift, Boardwalk Winery will ship your selections for you.

Make time to experience the wineries of Broadway.

From the Original to Gourmet, Burgers Rule At Broadway

Posted in Dining

Americans love their burgers. The ultimate comfort food, a really good burger can be one of the greatest culinary experiences known to man, woman or child.

It's hard to believe that the burger has only been around since 1900. That's when genius restauranteurs started putting the so-called "hamburger steak" on a bun and adding condiments.

At Broadway at the Beach, hamburgers and cheeseburgers are among our visitors' favorite foods. Our restaurants have been serving up great burgers since they opened their doors in the mid-1990s.

Broadway is home to Johnny Rockets and its specialty, "The Original Hamburger." This one-third pound burger is the star that launched the restaurant in 1986. Rockets' cheeseburger version has been rated a 12 by diners using a scale of 1 to 10!

Burgers served by Hard Rock Cafe are sure to shake, rattle and roll you into hamburger heaven. Seven different varieties start out with a half-pound of Angus beef and build from there. Hard Rock serves up a great burger experience from the "Classic Burger" with traditional "fixins" to the exotic "Tango Burger" layered with slow-cooked Sloppy Joe, American or jack cheeses, barbecue sauce, and finished with blue cheese and horseradish mayonnaise.

Good Time Charley's offers 16 different types of burgers. From traditional American cheeseburgers to the "All In" burger with jalapenos, bacon and more, to "The Hangover" burger with its over easy egg on top, there's something for every burger lover.

At Liberty Brewery & Grill you can grab a specialty beer and build your own burger. Starting with a certified Angus beef burger, the add-on possibilities include an assortment of cheeses, applewood smoked bacon, bacon & onion marmalade, crispy onion straws, fried bread & butter pickles, grilled onions, grilled mushrooms, balsamic onions, and Southern slaw. Yum!

Wet Willie's starts off with its "Original American Classic" burger, but from there it's a wild ride into the world of gourmet burgers. Cheeseburger sliders and kosher dill pickles are served on a stick, the "Burn Baby Burn " is blackened and topped with Louisiana hot sauce, pickled jalapenos and Pepper jack cheese; and the "Hawaiian Lei Burger " is teriyaki glazed and topped with grilled pineapple and bacon. If you like mushrooms and Swiss cheese, the "Swiss Guard " has them. But the most unique burger is a "Better With Butter" which is smothered in a mound of grilled-in-butter sweet onions and topped with American Cheese.

From the original to the gourmet, burgers rule at Broadway.

Both the food and energy of Johnny Rockets make it an ideal place to take the kids. Your family will want to return again and again to this cozy restaurant with the diner motif, singing and dancing waitstaff, and great burgers, fries, and shakes.

Over at Joe's Crab Shack you'll find a kid's menu with seafaring twists.

When the weather's nice, the kids can even work off some energy at the on-site playground.
