Choosing a seafood restaurant to try in a coastal area can be quite a challenge, especially when you’re talking about Myrtle Beach, one of the top tourist destinations in the country. Everywhere you turn, there’s another place serving seafood. But not all of those restaurants are award-winning. Voted “Best of the Beach” by locals in The Sun News and Myrtle Beach Herald for multiple years, The Original Benjamin’s Calabash Seafood is not only award-winning, but it’s the largest restaurant in South Carolina, too. And you won’t believe the experience you’ll have eating here.

The Original Benjamin’s is known for introducing the Myrtle Beach area to Calabash-style seafood. This type of cooking originated in Calabash, NC, and is characterized as lightly battered and deep-fried. But if seafood isn’t your thing or you happen to be in the mood for something else, the restaurant also offers a full spread of Southern favorites, too. Oh, and check out the gift shop before you leave!
