Comings & Goings: Changes in Myrtle Beach SC including a new amusement and new restaurants

You may notice some changes in Myrtle Beach SC on your next vacation. 

The area is welcoming new restaurants and amusements while saying goodbye to others.

There are so many changes, we decided to put together this post to keep you in the know of what is new, including some attractions that were new in 2015 that you may not know about.


Some of the most noticeable changes are happening at Broadway at the Beach.

If you usually get to Broadway by traveling U.S. 17 Bypass from the north, you will notice a hardrocklandmark is missing. Planet Hollywood shut its doors and the globe has been torn down. Right now it is an empty lot, but a new restaurant is expected to be built on the lot.

Inside Broadway, you will see several changes, mostly in Celebrity Square. Several of the nightclubs have closed including Revolutions, Froggy Bottomz and Country Roads. Broadway Louie’s has moved to the former Country Roads location and new OZ nightclub will open.

Hard Rock will also be moving out of the pyramid and will locate a few doors down.

Dave & Buster’s will also be coming to the Broadway, along with a new restaurant, American Tap House.

PaulaDeen4Carlos & Charlie’s also closed. The current building will be torn down and a Paula Deen’s Family Kitchen will be built on the space.

On the other side of Broadway, you will notice MagiQuest closed. No word yet on a business taking over the building. Also Capriz closed.

If you were a fan of Amici’s Brick Oven Pizza, they have left Broadway and are moving to 9924 North Kings Hwy.
