MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) - The Myrtle Beach Community Appearance Board has a vision for Ocean Boulevard, one they say the new restaurant Riptydz Ocean Front Grill and Rooftop Bar fits into perfectly.

The 17,000-square-foot restaurant sits just a block from the SkyWheel. This will be the first rooftop bar right on the ocean in Myrtle Beach.

Right now, there is no set open date, but the owner says construction is set to finish up in the next few weeks.

“As of right now, we intend to be open for early June,” said Dave Goodbread, the general manager for Riptydz, “We would love to be open for Country Fest. So everyone who’s going to be coming here that weekend, hopefully we’re open and you can come for a drink and some food.”

Along with a roof deck and plenty of patio space, the new restaurant will have a beach area where guests can play games like volleyball and cornhole. The general manager said he always hopes to bring live music to the establishment.

The same owners of The Wicked Tuna in Murrells Inlet are opening this new restaurant and they’re excited to bring a new feel to the popular area.

“We just really want to bring that fun laid back beach lifestyle to the boardwalk,” Goodbread said.
