This Halloween plan on having a spooky good time when you dine in one of the haunted restaurants in Myrtle Beach. With so many activities going on in the area, get out early so you can enjoy a tasty meal and get your night started off right!
Whether you’re attending the Adult’s Costume Party on the Marshwalk or you’re taking the kids out for some safe trick or treating at Broadway at the Beach, The Market Common, or Barefoot Landing, there’s plenty to do and see in the area for a night of spooky good fun!
Haunted Restaurant #1 – The Bowery
Located at 110 9th Avenue North in Myrtle Beach you’ll find The Bowery right on the boardwalk in downtown Myrtle Beach. This honky-tonk country music bar has a rich history going back to 1944 that includes beachfront fun, beer, delicious appetizers, and live music. But here’s the spooky part — The Bowery boasts a legendary story of a man called “Barman Joe.” Legend has it that Barman Joe died in his barstool at The Bowery and turned cold and blue before he sprang up in his seat, coming back to life to finish off the drinks that he ordered. Some claim to still hear good ol’ Barman Joe singing while at bar.
Haunted Restaurant #2 – The Brentwood Restaurant & Wine Bistro
Celebrated for the fine dining and unique atmosphere, you’ll find The Brentwood Restaurant at 4269 Luck Avenue, Little River, SC. It’s housed inside a Victorian home that was built in 1910, and at one point was used as a bed and breakfast for fisherman. It eventually closed in the 1980’s, but then reopened as a fine-dining restaurant. The Brentwood hosts not just regular customers, but customers of the paranormal kind too. Those who work at the Brentwood have reported strange experiences so often that the owners contacted the paranormal investigation team, P.I.T. Crew to stay the night at the Brentwood and investigate. After their stay, the team reported a large amount of activity (the most they’ve ever experienced, they said) especially in the kitchen and bar areas. Some of the activity that the P.I.T. Crew encountered included objects moving unexplainably, cameras being drained of power, loud noises, shadowy apparitions, and more.
Haunted Restaurant #3 – Dead Dog Saloon
Murrells Inlet SC is where you’ll find the Dead Dog Saloon — a favorite for locals and visitors looking for a fun-filled place to hang out. Located on the Marshwalk at 4079 US 17 Business, this is a great place to kick back and watch a game, have dinner with your family, or enjoy sitting on the deck with friends. The restaurant was named after a dog named Dudley, who is said to haunt the restaurant now. Though there aren’t really any documented reports of a haunting, Dudley has sure become a myth among those who work at the Dead Dog Saloon as well as those who spend time there. Next time you’re there and you hear your hushpuppies bark, you may not be going crazy, but it may just be Dudley telling you he is hungry from the other side.
