North Myrtle Beach, SC is the location for a great way to celebrate the seventh day of the week. Whether you’re coming from church or music itself is your salvation, House of Blues Myrtle Beach offers Southern hospitality to your ears, taste buds and soul. I was happy to be hosted to experience it!
A live singer and a combo band interacts with the audience. You are welcome to record the show. I learned that the most famous hymn on the planet, Amazing Grace, was written by a Brit who was a slave trader before his religious awakening. It then became a popular African-American spiritual both during the Civil War and during the Civil Rights era.
The House of Blues has great signature cocktails, but you’ll have to wait until after 12 o’clock to try them, thanks to South Carolina’s liquor laws. After that time, there’s a Bloody Mary bar with all the fixin’s.
The brunch part itself is a cornucopia of Southern favorites, along with a carving station.
They’re well-known for their chicken and waffles . . . as to their fried chicken, it’s worth doing whatever you have to do to indulge. Whether it’s banking calories or celery and ice water afterwards, this is one splurge you won’t want to miss. It’s so juicy! Also, you’ll want to try some of their cream gravy that’s paired with biscuits on it, too. You will!
The decor is outstanding. The dining room was created to look like a little country cabin. The House of Blues chain has the largest collection of American Folk art from the 1800’s. Their restaurants qualify as museums.
The North Myrtle Beach location has Al Capone’s actual polished wood bar!
