Celebrate Today With Your BFF at Broadway

Who is your best friend?

They are the person that knows the real you. That person you can confide in. That person you do life with. That person you celebrate the highest highs and that walks with you through the lowest lows. Whether it's a best friend from childhood or a recent instant connection, true best friends are rarity in life. When you find one or two or even a group of besties, you should celebrate them and what better day to do that than national best friend day on Thursday, June 8th at Broadway at the Beach!

Whether it's your go-to girlfriends or best bros, dining over burgers at Wahlburgers, crackin crab legs at Joe's Crab Shack or sipping on something sweet from Wet Willie's or the latest craft brew at American Tap House, you can always catch up on the latest gossip while enjoying a meal at Broadway!

Are you a more adventurous duo or group, make memories with your best friends over lake broadway as you zipline at Soar & Explore and be sure to bring your camera to capture those intense facial expressions as your friend conquers their fear of heights on the new Ferris wheel of Pavilion Park West!

Are you a competitive couple of best friends? If so, let the games begin at Dave & Buster's as you compete for bragging rights after scoring the most points on basketball swishes and football throwing games!

Shopping can also be a great way to celebrate national best friends day, because let's face it, you know you will be borrowing whatever they buy at some point in time! You can help decide which wall piece is best for your bro's man cave when shopping at Man Cave Store and help your girlfriend decide which piece of jewelry goes best with their little black dress when shopping at Bijuju!

So how will you celebrate National Best Friends Day? Whether you spend it with us or with a phone call across country to your childhood friend, we hope it's a day where memories are made that will last a lifetime!

Happy National Best Friends Day!

West Coast, East Coast, Gulf Coast: The Choice Is Yours At Broadway

From the California coast to the Carolina coast to everywhere in between, the memories of places you have been are often tied to the tasty cuisine you have enjoyed while there. Whether your travels have led you north, south, east or west, Broadway at the Beach is the center for every craving!

When you're looking for that west coast flare, you can always go a little extreme at Extreme Pizza. From their fresh salads, monster subs, cheesy calzone and signature pizzas, the creations from their kitchen are not only packed full of flavor, but they also offer a variety of gluten free options that will please your whole party!

Heading a little south of the border in terms of choice of cuisine and a little east of Extreme Pizza, Senor Frog's is a great destination for Mexican food with a twist! Whether lunch or dinner, the eatery and bar offers a side of fun with your favorite drinks and dining options including nachos, burritos, tacos, margaritas, daquiris and mojitos. When the sun sets, the restaurant is a hotspot for dancing and a great time!

If a little lower key is what you're looking for, the tastes of the Gulf Coast can be found at Landry's Seafood with low country creations of fried and grilled shrimp, a catch of the day, crab cakes, pasta dishes and desserts! The romantic atmosphere and excellent service of Landry's also serves as a great date night spot and for any special occasion. If crab legs are your seafood of choice, but you prefer a bib over ambiance, Joe's Crab Shack's steam pots features flavors from across the nation including The Orleans, Beantown Bake and Arctic Bay!

If you can't tell already, this blog is making us very hungry! So we'll continue…

A little south of the Gulf Coast and further down the way into Broadway, Key West Grill lives up to its namesake offering island infused dishes, drinks and desserts and while you're there, be sure to say hello to Kiwi!

A little further down from Key West Grill, the island life and leisure continues as you sip on something sweet and listen to the music of Jimmy Buffett's Margaritaville. Whether you're in the mood for volcano nachos, Caribbean chicken egg rolls or a cheeseburger in paradise, it's always 5 o'clock somewhere and it's always delicious at Margaritaville!

We've been to the California coast, Gulf coast, Key West and the Caribbean without leaving Broadway, and there's one place we can't forget to mention that will bring us to the South Carolina coast, we're talking about the undeniable deliciousness of Sweet Carolina's. From fall off the bone baby back ribs, brisket and smoked chicken to the South Carolina necessities of homemade corn bread and fried green tomatoes, Sweet Carolina's Smokehouse is a true southern spot that will have you coming back for more!

Our list of favorites can go on at Broadway, including the all-american selections of Johnny Rockets and Good Time Charley's and the craft brews of American Tap House and the Liberty Brewery & Grill to the international flavors of Yamatos Steak House and King Kong Sushi, but for now, we'll let you choose the coastal cuisine of your choice at Broadway at the Beach!

Spring Forward Into Fashion, Food & Fun At Broadway

On Sunday, March 12th, it will happen. Whether we like it or not, it will happen. Whether we are ready for it or not, it will happen. It's the day when we lose an hour of sleep and the day we have an excuse for that third trip to Starbucks before noon. Okay, this is sounding negative, so let's try again.

On Sunday, March 12th, it will happen. It's the day the sun begins to shine a little longer. It's the day we unofficially say goodbye to the winter woes. It's the day we spring forward into a new season. It's daylight savings time!

Although the official beginning of Spring 2017 isn't until Monday, March 20th, we'll already be in the new season spirit after we cross daylight savings time off the calendar! And Broadway has a plethora of ways to help us get in the new spring swing of things! First up; shopping.

The annual chore of putting away the sweaters and coats and pulling out the sandals and sun dresses can be made more enjoyable when adding a few new stylish pieces from Denim Exchange and Bijuju and grabbing a new pair of designer shades from Sunglass Hut! Don't forget, a new ensemble isn't complete until you step into the season with a new pair of Crocs or by stopping by Rack Room Shoes to lace up a new pair of running shoes.

There's another way to let go of the winter blues at Broadway.

Grab a seat, sip on something sweet and take in the warmer season at one of our dining hotspots that feature outdoor seating! Whether you're on the patio of Liberty Brewery & Grill, on the deck of Johnny Rockets or Landry's Seafood, you're sure to find something to quench your thirst and to fill your belly. If you're up for a little people watching while enjoying something delicious, Hard Rock Café, Wahlburgers and American Tap House have a seat waiting for you!

The list of ways to enjoy the longer days of spring at Broadway can go on and on, from feeding the newest ducklings to taking in the newest blockbuster at the Big D Theatre to exploring the depths of the ocean at Ripley's Aquarium to voyaging to the unknown of space at WonderWorks, there are plenty of places to enjoy the season of new beginnings at Broadway!

Happy Valentine’s Day: 10 Things We Love About Broadway

Roses are Red. Violets are Blue.

You love Broadway at the Beach & We love you too!

Okay, so our poem producing skills could use some work; but on this day of love and affection, we're counting down the reasons why we love Broadway at the Beach!

10.) Home is where the heart is… in Myrtle Beach.

Whether you're a native of its sandy shores or a transplant from across the country or an annual visitor on vacation; Myrtle Beach is a place where memories are made in the sand, sun and with a hint of summer that can be enjoyed all year round. From the northern end of Little River to the southern end of Georgetown, Broadway at the Beach sits in the middle of the Grand Strand in the heart of Myrtle Beach and there's no other place we'd rather be!

9.) We love to light up the sky!

Regardless if you're a kid, a kid at heart or you've got a kid on top of your shoulders, there's just something special about taking in a fireworks show with the ones you love. Broadway at the Beach celebrates holidays and summer nights with our annual Fireworks Extravaganzas, weather permitting of course!

8.) For the love of snacks!

This will be the first of two appearances of food on our list of love because, well... we're foodies! When we're out and about at Broadway and not ready to head into one of the many restaurants, we love to satisfy our sweet and savory tooth cravings with a variety of snacks offered at every corner of Broadway at the Beach. In the summer, the flavorful fragrance of freshly popped popcorn from a kiosk fills the air and cold snow cones cool us down in the heat. All year round, the aroma of freshly made pralines from River Street Sweets and fine fudge from The Fudgery and Kilwins persuades us to purchase or at least sample every visit!

7.) Sweet souvenirs of your southern escape

Taking a piece of Broadway at the Beach with you is always a must-do when you visit! It's the Broadway at the Beach magnet on your fridge that reminds you of the tasty time spent walking around with a waffle cone of Ben & Jerry's or Cold Stone Creamery Ice Cream. It's the Myrtle Beach hoodie from Vintage House that you bundle yourself up with in the cold. It's the pictures taken with the mermaids of Ripley's Aquarium that are framed forever in your hallway. We love that our souvenirs serve as a glimpse back to the annual vacation or weekends walking, shopping and eating at Broadway during those hectic every day schedules.

6.) Events for Everyone

Just when you think Broadway at the Beach couldn't get any better with our abundance of shops, restaurants and attractions, Broadway's Calendar of Events continues to fill up with events we love! From the annual KidzTime Festival to A Very Broadway Christmas, to walks to remember to car shows to food festivals and more; Broadway at the Beach is the home of special events, entertainers and festivals all throughout the year!

5.) We love to Dance!

Grab your dancing shoes and step on the dance floor! Whether you're dancing the night away to your favorite tunes at Club Oz, Senor Frog or you're testing your Salsa skills at Hard Rock Café, or you are line dancing with the wait staff at Johnny Rockets, Broadway offers plenty of options for you to get your boogie on!

4.) Our Legendary Loves of Hollywood

The music lover in all of us can take a trip down memory lane when we have a meal among authentic Hollywood memorabilia of Hard Rock Café and see the tribute artist stars of yesteryear and chart toppers of today take the stage at Legends in Concert. Broadway isn't just a place for retro revelers, we love catching the latest flicks and blockbusters from a seat in Broadway 17 and the Big D!

3.) Our love for Broadway is as deep as the ocean and out of this world!

Not only can we shop, eat and be entertained at Broadway; but we love how we can have an out of this world experience at Broadway and beyond without leaving Celebrity Circle! From seeing sharks to being able to touch sting rays at Ripley's Aquarium to challenging yourself to stand up against hurricane force winds and piloting a fighter jet at WonderWorks, our capabilities are endless. Let's not forget that we can putt into another world while experiencing Dragon's Lair Fantasy Golf and listening to the tales of Sir Alfred the dragon!

2.) Endless love for shopping

You know our love to shop was near the top of our list of love! From designer eyewear at Sunglass Hut to the exquisite Pandora Jewelry line at The Mole Hole and Alex & Ani of Gemini Boutique to fashion finds of Bijuju and holistic essentials of Earthbound Trading Co., shoppers can shop 'til they drop all day long at Broadway at the Beach. Since it's Valentine's Day, don't forget, our retail shops are open until 6pm for you late love procrastinators!

1.) Eat, drink & be in love with Broadway at the Beach

You could probably guess our love of food was going to claim the #1 spot of our top 10 loves of Broadway! But it's more than just the sitting down and eating; it's the classic All-American burgers and milkshakes of Johnny Rockets before watching the 4th of July fireworks. It's the drinking of carefully crafted beer of American Tap House and Liberty Brewery & Grill while cheering on our favorite team in the playoffs. It's teaching our young ones how to crack their first crab leg at Joe's Crab Shack and Landry's Seafood. It's the happy hour sushi specials at King Kong Sushi with a group of coworkers to discuss the latest news (or gossip) at the office. It's the coastal tastes of California at Extreme Pizza and the Boston flare of Wahlburgers. It's the hibachi chef at Yamato's Japanese Grill that makes us laugh while watching our spouse try to catch a shrimp with their mouth. It's the first sip of a sweet Margarita while listening to the sounds of Jimmy Buffet at Margaritavillle that can take you back to summer during the winter months or cools us down in the midst of the summer heat.

The list goes on and so does our love of all things Broadway at the Beach. However, our list wouldn't be complete without our most important love of our all, our visitors. From seeing your memories being made with young ones enjoying the summer at Pavilion Park; to young and old loves walking hand in hand across the Center Bridge; to a group celebrating the upcoming nuptials with a Bachelorette and/or Bachelor party at Crocodile Rocks; to little leaguers celebrating a win in Myrtle Beach at their favorite burger place; to seeing your #BroadwayAtTheBeach pictures through social media, you make Broadway at the Beach what it is, the place where memories last forever and this Valentine's Day that's what we are celebrating with love!

Restaurant Week: Broadway Style

Posted in Broadway at the Beach, Featured Posts, Dining

If you're like us, you remember being told by a parent, "you need to eat your vegetables" or "you have to eat something" or "you can't go outside until you finish your plate". Nowadays, it doesn't take any parental persuasion to get us to chow down during our daily cuisine routine. Whether it's three square meals a day, grabbing something to go or snacking throughout the day, what we put on our plate often serves as tasty comfort to our otherwise hectic (and hungry) schedule.

However, picking a place the whole family or group can agree on can be as divisive as asking a group of NFL fans to agree upon who the greatest quarterback of all time is; but we've got something at Broadway at the Beach we believe we can all look forward to; the first Broadway Restaurant Week featuring some of your favorites as well as a few new Broadway venues!

Beginning Friday, February 3rd through Sunday, February 12th, join us and experience new menu items or enjoy some of your favorite go to dishes at participating Broadway restaurants. From American classics at Johnny Rockets, Hard Rock Café, Liberty Brewery & Grill and Good Time Charley's to savory seafood selections at Joe's Crab Shack and Landry's Seafood to stepping outside your cuisine comfort zone with the unique creations of Extreme Pizza, American Tap House, Rooster's Restaurant & Bar and Wahlburgers; Broadway Restaurant Week has something different for everyone in your party every night of the week.

Broadway Restaurant Week can also serve as a cure for those whom suffer from what we like to call a "restaurant rut" where the common symptoms are eating the same food at the same place every time you dine outside your own dinner table. Let Broadway Restaurant Week be your excuse to try somewhere and something different as you dine for lunch and dinner with us.

So grab your friends, family and if possible, that parent you hid your vegetables from as a child and experience the inaugural Broadway Restaurant Week where there's always a seat waiting for you.
