If you have visited Myrtle Beach over the past 22 years, then my guess is that you are familiar with Broadway At The Beach and all of the amazing things there are available to do. However, if you have visited in the past and are planning a trip back to Myrtle Beach expecting to go visit the Pyramid, you will be hard pressed to find it. Over the past year, the section of Broadway known as Celebrity Square has been completely renovated and give a major overhaul.
Gone is the giant pyramid that used to be Hard Rock Cafe and it has been replaced by a brand new building housing the all new Dave & Buster’s. Here you can enjoy a tasty meal and hours of endless fun playing games or watching your favorite sporting event on one of the many TV’s throughout. I recently visited here with my Broker for lunch and the Classic Goldfingers were delicious. He had the Bang Bang Chicken with Spicy Thai Peanut Noodles which also looked very good.
If you are sad about the removal of Hard Rock Cafe, do not fret, Hard Rock Cafe simply moved down the street to a brand new location which can be seen from afar by the giant 40′ giant red rotating guitar. You can still catch live entertainment here and have the full rock star experience that you have grown to love. During the summer, it looks like they have live entertainment almost every evening.
Back in the winter of 2016, the Wahlburgers family owned by Mark, Donnie & executive chef Paul Wahlberg opened their doors at Broadway At The Beach. Stop by there and enjoy a delicious burger. My personal favorite is the O.F.D or Originally from “Dorchestah”. Of course the sweet potato tots and the mac ‘n cheese with smoked bacon are a must to making any meal better too.
Another recent addition that opened is Paula Deen’s Family Kitchen. This restaurant features southern cuisine at it’s finest in a family style dining experience. After looking at their menu, the fried chicken and fried catfish have my mouth watering to go & give it a try. Of course, I’m sure Paula adds a pound of butter to everything, because we all know, butter makes everything better.
Now if you are thinking that all of your favorite things to do at Broadway have been shut down, you will be glad to know that they are all still there. You can still go enjoy going underwater with the sharks & see the mermaids at Ripley’s Aquarium, catching a new flick at Broadway 17 Cinemas, or going upside down at Wonderworks upside down house.
Fireworks At Broadway At The Beach
Another great thing to check out at Broadway At The Beach during the summer is the fireworks display that they do every Tuesday evening at 10PM over the lake. We haven’t been able to catch one yet this year, but below you can see a video snippet from when we saw one of the shows last year. You can see my how excited my son was during this show by all the jumping he did. The shows are great to catch and are free. Our favorite place to catch the fireworks is from the deck at Ripley’s Aquarium after visiting with the sharks & rays.
A tip from a local: If you watch the fireworks from Ripley’s, you can also enjoy a free bag of popcorn and a soft drink that they provide during the show.
