THE LOCALE | Dirty Don’s Oyster Bar and Grill, Barefoot Resort
THE LOWDOWN | Dirty Don’s Oyster Bar and Grill now has a third location where you can enjoy a raw bar and cold beverages. This one is at Barefoot Resort, and that’s where we went for happy hour this week.
Dirty Don’s is located on the Intracoastal Waterway next to Barefoot Resort, which is behind Barefoot Landing in North Myrtle Beach. The location was formerly Docksiders Grille. Locals, golfers, boaters and seafood-lovers hang out at this laid back, waterfront joint.
There’s a great view from inside the restaurant since all four walls are mostly windows. As you gaze around at the decor, you will see golf gear alongside surfboards and giant fish. High and low-top tables are scattered around the large octagon-shaped bar that sits in the middle of the establishment.
There is outdoor seating, and a large outdoor area that can be used for special events. There are a couple of sand volleyball courts outside, so expect to see (or play) games during the summer. Presently you can sing karaoke on Wednesdays and play trivia on Thursdays.
Happy hour at this Dirty Don’s location runs from 4 to 7 p.m. (instead of until 6 p.m. like the other two locations) Drink specials include $2 domestic draft beers, $2.50 domestic bottles, $3 well drinks, $4 wine and Oyster Shooters are two bucks. Also during happy hour you can snag 50-cent mussels, shrimp, clams, oysters and wings. There’s also a $6 oyster roast every Friday and Saturday from 1 to 3 p.m.
TIPS | Boaters can dock their boats for free if they’re coming to the restaurant. If you are driving, go over the Barefoot Resort Bridge and take your second left.
