What to Order at California Dreaming
California Dreaming is an American restaurant with locations across the southeast, including one near Captain’s Quarters in Surfside Beach. Their menu is huge and you really can’t go wrong with anything you order. But here are some of the can’t-miss choices on the California Dreaming menu.
Nachos- California Dreaming is known for their specialty nachos and any of their options is are sure to appeal to one of the diners you go there with. There’s the creamed spinach nachos with house-made creamed spinach and cheese sauce topped with romano cheese, or the seafood nachos with spicy shrimp, salmon, cheese sauce and a lobster cream sauce with dill, capers and chopped red onions, or the California Dreaming take on BBQ chicken nachos. Really you can’t go wrong ordering the nachos at this restaurant.
Salad- Salads aren’t usually a “can’t-miss” at most restaurants but few diners are ever sorry that they ordered the California Dreaming salad. It has been given several “Best Salad” awards across its dining areas. This salad is sort of like a cross between a cob salad and a chef salad with greens, ham and turkey, cheddar and monterey jack cheese, eggs, tomatoes, ham, bacon and topped with toasted almonds. This salad is huge and tasty.
Ribs- The baby-back ribs at California Dreaming are also a great choice for anyone who is a ribs fan. These ribs are Danish-style full-flavored ribs. They’re grilled to give them that classic crispy exterior and then basted with a sweet barbecue sauce.
So if you’re considering going to California Dreaming on your next Captain’s Quarters vacation, remember these menu items so you can make a quick choice when the waiter comes around to take your order. And make sure you bring along the Myrtle Beach discounts card you got upon checking-in at Captain's Quarters (it's your room key!) so you can get a free appetizer with your entree purchases.
