My husband and I make several trips to Myrtle Beach each year, and I’m always looking for some place different to eat than the trips before. Usually on our first night there, I crave a simple meal of fried shrimp and hushpuppies. THE place to go for just that is the town of Calabash, NC. It’s about a half hour drive north and well worth it, but we didn’t want to make that drive the first night.
I don’t do buffets. I can’t stand all the people hovering over all the food acting like this may be their last meal. The food is always just mediocre at best, especially for the price. So we decided to try Duffy Street Fish Shack on Restaurant Row which is less than 10 minutes from our place.
Duffy Street is a locally-owned establishment that’s been around for 16 years. They have two other locations on the grand strand in Cherry Grove and North Myrtle Beach. The Myrtle Beach location opened just over a year ago. They describe themselves as a “low country & laid back” place with “fantastic food, smoking hot blues and ice cold beer.” There was no band the night we were there, but it was Sunday, so that was understandable.
