▪  The Bar-B-Que House in Surfside Beach promptly finished up revamping their building and is happily serving guests once again. This location of the three-store franchise is the most recent, and the renovations done to the building coincided with their five-year anniversary.

Much of the interior to the restaurant has been redone, and the patio has been spruced up as well. The floors inside were ripped up and redone and the walls were painted as well. Their welcome sign encourages guests to come check out their new look.

Bar-B-Que House got its start on Oak Island, N.C., and has two locations in the Grand Strand. A small strand but well loved, this restaurant shares the passion of barbeque while celebrating the many difference tastes that are a part of the meal.

▪  The Fractured Prune Doughnuts location on Fresh Drive Suite seems to have closed, though nothing has been officially announced. The Facebook page for our local Fractured Prune has not been updated since August, and potential customers have reported closed doors during regular hours as listed on the website.

A call to the restaurant brought no answers either, with many rings leading eventually to an answering machine that hasn’t been activated. Many guests, and not just the locals either, would be sad to see this doughnut shop known for its fresh ingredients and creativity leave the Grand Strand.
