First Report 1/10/12: It's so common to see restaurants come and go in the Grand Strand that there is reason for celebration when a dining institution takes on considerable renovation to prepare for longer tourist seasons and more customers.
Peach's Corner, open since the 1930's, is spending some time this winter to spiffy up and celebrate their 75th anniversary. Included in the work is a giant, spinning peach that will sit atop their Ocean Boulevard building. You can see the full write-up and photos in this Sun News article. You can also find Peach's Corner on Facebook.
After a quick staff poll, we've come up with a few other restaurants that have stood the test of time in the Grand Strand. Commemorate the new year (and the off-season) with an eating tour of Myrtle Beach culinary history.
