MOTO’s Bar – Murphy’s Bar & Grill
There are several options to eat in Cherry Grove at the end of Sea Mountain Highway. When you get to the light, look to the right and you will Murphy’s. When it first opened, the locals and staff were calling it MOTO’s, which was short for Murphy’s on the Ocean. The former place of business for many years was called HOTO’s. HOTO’s is now located in Ocean Drive.
Murphy’s is now going by the name “Murphy’s Bar & Grill”. You may see it listed on social media as “Murphy’s on the Beach”.
They feature live music most days. Check them out for Happy Hour and Food Specials. If you ride by, they have a big blackboard on the side of the building with daily specials. The location is great with a great view of the ocean in Cherry Grove. During parts of the year, you may find it is a big draw to bikers. Murphy’s does have its fair share of parking compared to other places in the area. There are shared lots and paid lots close by.
It is one of the places that is open year round, so give it a try the next time you are in North Myrtle Beach.
One of the newest restaurants in North Myrtle Beach is Snooky’s Oceanfront in Cherry Grove. If you are looking to hang out and eat at an oceanside bar, you need to check out Snooky’s. They feature fresh seafood and offer daily specials. They are a full service restaurant for lunch and dinner. Happy Hour is 4 to 6pm. They have a brunch menu available on Saturday and Sundays. This is the second location for Snooky’s with the first being in Little River.
Parking can be hard to find in Cherry Grove down by the ocean, that is why Snooky’s offers a FREE Valet service. Just pull up and let them park your car. There are free lots and paid parking lots close to the restaurant if you don’t want to use the valet service.
A huge draw to Snooky’s is the second floor deck bar. You may find the bar service upstairs closed during the offseason. It gets rather chilly up on the second level. You can certainly go and check it out. They have inside seating and close the first level off from the wind during the wintertime. If you are here in the Spring and Summer, expect it to be hopping. With the views and incredible food, Snooky’s has quickly become one of the top spots in Cherry Grove.
