Top 3 Types of Seafood You Must Have in Myrtle Beach

When visiting Myrtle Beach, SC or any other southern beach town, making a stop for seafood is an absolute must. At Captain Benjamin’s Calabash Seafood in Myrtle Beach, we understand that the number of items on restaurant menus and buffet bars can be intimidating. Because of that, here are the top 3 items that you absolutely must have if you are eating seafood at the beach.

  1. Crab legs. They have to be number 1 on any southern seafood list. The combination of sweet and salty dipped in melted butter is one of the most delectable tastes you will come across. Nothing quite compares to the satisfaction of getting an entire crab leg out in one piece. If you’re not sure of the best way to eat a crab leg, be sure to check out an earlier post of ours which goes over the best technique for doing so.
  2. Calabash seafood. This is not just one item, but rather a style of seafood that many items can be served as. Calabash seafood is a seafood that is lightly battered and fried for just the right amount of time, and it is delicious. Many seafood items can be served Calabash-style, including shrimp, oysters, clams and more.
  3. Oysters. These are the highlight of the raw bar, and Myrtle Beach oysters are to die for. If visiting the area, be sure to dine at a seafood restaurant or buffet that has a well-stocked raw bar which includes fresh oysters.

There are so many more excellent items to choose from but be sure to dive into these three no matter what.
