Looking for a casual dining place with a great view and fun atmosphere, then you need to try About Thyme Oceanfront Café & Cocktails located at 1910 North Ocean Boulevard in the Cherry Grove section of North Myrtle Beach on the premises of the Blockade Runner. It is on the oceanfront with two bars—one outside and one inside with seating in both areas. You can dine during breakfast, lunch or dinner with the soft roar of the ocean as background music. According to Beachbumgirl222, it is a hidden gem as she states below:
“A Hidden Gem of a Restaurant & Oceanfront Bar!!!What an amazing place! Certainly can’t beat the view being ocean front in North Myrtle Beach! It’s inside the Blockade Runner Hotel. They make an awesome Lemon Drop Martini! Really good food too! The 2 women that own it are just as nice as can be and the rest of the staff is also! Especially as a local, we desperately needed an awesome place to go for drinks & food that was ocean front. This is just what we needed!!!! Looking forward to going there again soon!
About Thyme is an American bar/café that serves breakfast all day. In fact, they have a great breakfast special Monday through Thursday from 8:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. for two people for only $7.95. You can enjoy your breakfast with a mimosa or Bloody Mary if you are in the mood for an additional fee, and their cinnamon roll pancakes are delicious. MissR says you should just go as stated below:
“Just go! Went for breakfast this morning…..yummy pancakes and crisp bacon and the best coffee I have had in a while……very friendly help and cute little bars….eat inside or by the beach…..Will definitely go back tomorrow for happy hour……delicious!”
About Thyme also has delicious and unusual daily specials that they rotate such as linguini with your choice of Chicken Parmesan, Italian Sausage or Meatballs or Taco Tuesday with Thai Chili Shrimp with tomatoes, avocado and cilantro or Salsa Verde marinated pork with slaw, jalapenos, pickled onions and a tequila lime sauce served with corn and black bean salsa. Some other great specials are fried pork chops served with lima beans, rice and corn bread fritters; teriyaki chicken stir fry; sautéed honey, orange chicken with broccoli and saffron rice; blackened rare ahi tuna tacos with wasabi slaw, jalapenos and an Asian sesame drizzle; steak-house style pork chops tossed in a hot cherry pepper vinegar sauce served with pan-fried potatoes or chicken cordon bleu with hollandaise sauce, rice and fresh sautéed vegetables. JacsB173YR says the Blockade Runner Restaurant North Myrtle Beach, About Thyme, is a tucked-away gem. That must be because it is partially hidden behind the Blockade Runner. See below:
“Tucked away gem! This restaurant is attached to the BLOCKCADE RUNNER Motel – thru the lobby and into a seated area or outdoor patio….and what a gem…..the two lady owners, Stephanie and Natasha are always around and the food is AMAZING……nice outdoor patio overlooks some wonderful “sea oats” and then the ocean…..what a nice view…..but the FOOD is what makes this place – everything we tried over 3 days was exceptional and pricing was very modest……make this a stop in the North Myrtle Beach area – you will not go wrong!”
Some of the sandwich specials also sound great and a little exotic such as the Asian marinated ahi tuna sandwich served on a brioche roll with a side of zesty cucumber and tomato salad; fried honey siracha sandwich or wrap with a side of corn and black bean salsa; a blackened shrimp Caesar wrap; a salmon burger BLT with pasta salad or a grilled cheese made with cheddar, provolone, bacon and tomato on a parmesan encrusted Texas toast.
The About Thyme Menu North Myrtle Beach also has appetizers, steaks, burgers, paninis, salads, seafood, and homemade desserts in a family-friendly atmosphere. The staff is very friendly, and the owners are often there as well to welcome you and help make your dining experience great. According to ConnieS:
“Happy hour with a view! A rainy Monday at the beach and what do we do?? Find the cutest little tiki bar in North Myrtle Beach! Y’all… the view, the company and the drinks were fantastic!! We weren’t all that hungry so we shared a happy hour chicken quesadilla and it was soooo good!!! Can’t wait to revisit this sweet place! Fresh flowers on every table and mint growing on the bar!!”
About Thyme serves delicious specialty cocktails and has live entertainment Wednesday through Sunday from 5:00 p.m. until 8:00 p.m. The daily happy hour from 4:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. is always lively with locals and tourists both enjoying the appetizer and drink specials. About Thyme is one of the great new North Myrtle Beach Restaurants with a casual dining café and bar located right on the ocean front, just steps from the beach. It is a great place to relax and dine or enjoy a cocktail with friends any time during the day. Try it! We think you will like it. We will leave you with two great reviews.
