We had some good “home-cooking” at the Biscuit Shack (see map) in the Cherry Grove Beach section of North Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. Jaimie, our waitress, was friendly and helpful. My husband, daughter and I were there for a late lunch. Sarah and I each ordered the $5.00 daily special. Sarah chose fried chicken, mashed potatoes with gravy, mustard greens, string beans, and cornbread. Home-canned pickled peppers, iced tea, and banana pudding came with the daily special. The chicken was greasy-good, the gravy was nice, the veggies fine, and the cornbread very sweet and tender. The tea tasted home-brewed, and the banana pudding creamy-dreamy.
My Shrimp Creole on rice was good — not nearly as spicy as Louisiana Shrimp Creole, but pleasant nevertheless. (Texas Pete helped.) I ordered the potato salad (quite firm potatoes, but excellent flavor), mustard greens, and a biscuit. The biscuit was not the best I've ever had — maybe just a teeny bit underbaked. One could choose hushpuppies, a different meat, and various other vegetables — a lot of food for $5.00!
Henry ordered the Fried Shrimp Sandwich ($4.00). It came on a commercial bun. The bun was nothing to get excited about, of course, but the fried shrimp was fantastic — the best Henry remembered ever having.
The restaurant serves breakfasts, other sandwiches, and platters. They emphasize seafood, so a seafood dinner can be had there for a very reasonable price.
We definitely want to go back. Value, service, and pleasing food — this restaurant is a real find.
