Restaurants Near Captain’s Quarters: BiminisThere is no shortage of seafood restaurants along the Grand Strand. One of them, Bimini’s Oyster Bar & Seafood Café, has been a favorite with locals, seafood lovers and parrotheads since it opened back in 1985.
The surroundings in Biminis can be described as being noisy and even rowdy. It is very casual, and you can safely dine wearing your flip-flops and board shorts. You can also enjoy the sounds of Jimmy Buffett and Island Reggae music as well as live beach music on certain nights. And you may even be encouraged to join in the singing.
Don’t go to Bimini’s expect a fine dining restaurant, but rather a friendly atmosphere with comfortable surroundings and good tasty food.
It is only natural that the menu at Bimini’s is 99% seafood – and there is a huge selection of it that includes oysters, clams, Alaskan crab legs, mussels, shrimps and Mahi Mahi fingers. If you’re not a lover of seafood there’s not much to draw you in – though there are chicken breast or steak choices on the entrée menu.
Many of the dishes are served with hush puppies, and with their covering of honey butter they are described as being the best in Myrtle Beach.
During Happy Hour, which runs from 4.00 p.m. until 7.00 p.m., oysters are half price and each of the bar drinks is $1 cheaper.
Another great deal comes upon production of the VMB Myrtle Beach discounts card guests at Captains Quarters and other Vacation Myrtle Beach resorts get. Showing your card allows you to enjoy a 15% discount on all of their food purchases, with the exception of drinks and the ½ price oysters.
While talking of oysters-- do try Bimini’s world famous Oyster Shooter, a mixture of Bud light, cocktail sauce, Tabasco and an oyster all in a tall shot glass – a concoction that may sound a little weird but that has some rave reviews.
The original aspiration of the owners was to bring the taste and feel of the Caribbean to Myrtle Beach, and they have certainly succeeded in doing so.
