Blog Post created by ryansweezey on Oct 9, 2015

Wondering where you can grab a bite to eat after a day of Backyards & Beyond sessions? There are plenty of well-reviewed restaurants in the Myrtle Beach area, and one of the highest-rated is just up the street!

If you’re in the mood for Italian food, try Toscana Italian Restaurant, located about a mile and a half from the conference center. TripAdvisor gives it four and a half out of five stars all-around, for overall rating, food, value, service and atmosphere. Out of 820 reviews, 638 reviewers rated it “excellent,” with an additional 109 giving a “very good” evaluation.

The interior of the restaurant is described by reviewers as “elegant but homey.” Many call the service outstanding, and that seems to come from the top-down, as the owner/chef has made personal replies to many of the patrons’ comments online. The owner is from Italy, so you can expect the real Italian food experience even in South Carolina!

Prices are reasonable.

The restaurant is open until 10:30 pm daily and dress is always casual.
