THE LOCALE | Moe Moons Beachside Burgers & Beer
THE LOWDOWN | After a day at the beach and a stroll on the boardwalk, you need some nourishment and cold refreshments. That's where Moe Moons Beachside Burgers & Beer comes in, especially if you visit during happy hour.
Moe Moons resides in the former Marvin's Food & Spirits location, smack in the middle of downtown Myrtle Beach on the boardwalk next to Plyler Park. It has a great view of the ocean, park and boardwalk. In fact, you can sit alongside the boardwalk or park at outdoor tables. The inside is lined with windows so you can still see all the action and ocean waves from the inside booths.
The locale is friendly, laid back and inviting. It has a nice interior with a long bar, booths a few high-top tables and three pool tables. The beachy decor includes surf boards, board shorts, and pictures of local surfers. In fact, the owners grew up surfing here and "Moe Moons" is old surfer lingo (in part meaning surfers would drop their board shorts and moon the big crowd who was watching.)
Moe Moons food menu includes burgers, hot dogs, sandwiches, tacos, salads, wings and seafood baskets. The drink menu includes Fishbowl Cocktails and Moe's Pineapple Express, which is a frozen daiquiri in a pineapple.
During happy hour, which runs from 4 p.m. - 7 p.m. weekdays, you can snag $2 beers and pitchers of beer for six bucks. Well drinks are $2.75 and top shelf liquor is also discounted.
TIPS | Don't leave with your alcoholic beverages to stroll along the boardwalk - that's frowned upon in Myrtle Beach. Check out the fun Moe Moons T-shirts by Native Sons at www.moemoons.com.
