Anyone familiar with the Myrtle Beach area knows the famous Apache Pier. And, almost every time we visit the beach we stroll down to the Pier. I remember one July 4th morning we arrived in our usual parking spot near Ocean Annie’s super early. Of course, if you arrive too late there’s no parking to be had on a holiday. Anyway, it was breakfast time and we were starving. So, we walked down to the famous Croakers. As we approached, the smell of bacon was intoxicating. We had the best good old fashioned breakfast of eggs, bacon and phenomenal down home service. It was fun seeing all the families just enjoying the vibe getting ready for a beach celebration. So, it was sad to a lot of us regulars when Croakers closed. But, this week I saw the news on several Facebook pages I’m on that the spot is getting new life.
And, the spot is now occupied by Groupers at the Pier. It’s brand new to the Pier. In fact, it’s so new there’s not a whole lot of information about it yet. It has big shoes to fill for sure given the reputation of Croakers among locals and visitors alike. But, I’m excited to give it try next time we go to the beach. Check them out at 9700 Kings Road, Myrtle Beach. The posts say they’re open 11 a.m. until. We wish nothing but the best for this new restaurant now open in the former Croakers spot at Apache Pier! And, we’ll update you as soon as we know more about Groupers.
