Quail & Grits at Longbeard’s in Myrtle Beach

The great debate of the morning after bike rides and a trip to the playground: where are we going to go for lunch?  Mexican? Burgers?

“Thomas, what do you want for lunch?”

“chicken fingers.” Well, that didn’t really narrow our options.

We knew we wanted to check out the Crafty Fest in Conway, so we headed that way and decided that Longbeard’s would be our lunch destination.


This was my first visit to Longbeard’s in Myrtle Beach.  It’s located in a secluded area in Carolina Forest, which is nice to be away from “it all.”  The building is large, with a big porch as an extension of the restaurant.  Walking in, you’re greeted with tall ceilings decorated with lots of taxidermied animals in the main dining area.  To the right is the bar.

The menu has a great selection of club sandwiches, burgers, nachos – and a few eclectic items like quail and alligator bites. All reasonable priced (I think the most expensive item on the menu was $14.99) — this menu has something for everyone, and is perfect for a family.  I opted for the quail & grits, since I can’t think of a place in Myrtle Beach that serves quail! I was not disappointed.

(PS – photography note: some of these I took with my Nikon p310 point & shoot and the others with my DSLR – see the photo details for each one)

The quail is breaded and fried to crunchy perfection, and mixed with sausage and creamy grits – so yes, order it.  Mixing game and grits can only be pulled off in the South, and Longbeard’s does it.
