Myrtle Beach to add another oceanfront restaurant

Another oceanfront restaurant is coming to the Myrtle Beach SC area in 2017.

RipTydz is expected to be 17,000-square-foot and have a “beachy, very causal” feel, according to Steve Ghidella, one of the three partners in the project.

“If someone’s coming in off the beach, we want them to feel very comfortable,” he said. “There’s going to be a lot of wood, a lot of open beams. And, of course, glass. We focused everything on the design on the view, because the view is what we’re selling.”

RipTydz will be at 1204 North Ocean Blvd., within a block of the Myrtle Beach SkyWheel.

In total, the restaurant will have 500 seats. The menu will include seafood, steak, fried food and a raw bar that’s “more expansive” than other options on Ocean Boulevard, Ghidella said. He added that the restaurant should be open until 2 a.m., saying that another restaurant he runs, The Beach House, usually gets good business at night.

Ghidella said the restaurant will open in February.
