THE LOCALE | Boardwalk Billy’s Raw Bar & Ribs, North Myrtle Beach
THE LOWDOWN | Looking for a locale with a great view, live entertainment and cold beverages? Check out the waterfront Boardwalk Billy’s Raw Bar & Ribs in North Myrtle Beach. That’s where we went for happy hour this week.
Boardwalk Billy’s Raw Bar & Ribs is located on the waterway in the former Boom Boom’s Raw Bar building. The locale is one of three Boardwalk Billy’s - the other two locations are in Charlotte, N.C.
Mostly locals fill the establishment, ages young to old. The atmosphere is lively and fun. You can catch live music several times a week (Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Fridays and Saturdays) from bands playing a variety of music including reggae, southern rock, country and more.
The stage is located outside on a huge outdoor patio with a view of the marina. There is plenty of outdoor seating available at tables as well as bar stools at the outdoor bar. You can also belly-up to the indoor bar or tables. You’ll spot a game room with Ms. Pac Man, Galaga, Silver Strike and more. You can play darts, and also be sure to check out the lighted outdoor corn hole pit. The establishment hosts corn hole tournaments on Thursdays.
