Popular Surfside Beach restaurant opening new location after losing old one to fire

Pickled Cucumber Reopens

SURFSIDE BEACH, SC (WMBF) – Fans of The Pickled Cucumber in Surfside Beach are in luck, as a new location is opening Thursday after the previous restaurant was lost to a fire in 2017.

According to a post on the restaurant’s Facebook page, the new Surfside Beach location will be located at 317 U.S. 17 North. It’s the same strip mall where Valentino’s Italian Restaurant is housed.

The owners of The Pickled Cucumber used the Facebook post to thank the community who stood by their side after the original location was lost due to a September 2017 blaze. The cause of the fire was deemed accidental.

“More than a year has passed after the fire that nearly ruined us. This has been an experience that tested us as a family and as a business and made us question everything we believed in, including ourselves,” the post read. “If not for amazing people that supported us, pushed us and believed in us, this day would have never come. Our family and you, our customers, literally made it happen.”

Last February, a Pickled Cucumber restaurant opened in Conway at 1129 Third Ave. Several of the Surfside Beach employees were given jobs at that location.
