MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) - A brand new bowling alley serves up the late-night classics and there are two perfect scores if you're looking to grab a bite by the beach.
We've got your dining details covered in this week's Restaurant Scorecard.
If you're looking for bowling and other games along with your meal, 810 Bowling opened this week in The Market Common at 1220 Moses Drive in Myrtle Beach. It's at the former Piggly Wiggly spot and features classic bowling alley with an upscale twist.
On top of 20 bowling lanes, there are six pool tables, a large dining area and dueling pianos. The menu offers everything from burgers and brick oven pizza, to loaded fries. State health inspectors approved the permit this week.
Big Mike's Grill, also known as Big Mike's Soul Food, is at 504 16th Ave. North in Myrtle Beach. It's known as a down-home joint dishing up big plates of Southern comfort food like fried chicken and collard greens. Inspectors also gave them an 88 out of 100. The spot lost points for not having a hand-washing sign at a hand sink, a buildup of grease and dust on the hood and filters, a buildup of food and debris under some tables, and a buildup of grease and debris under fryers, according to the report.
Wok On The Beach is known for offering familiar Chinese and Japanese entrees, from fried rice to hibachi fare. It's at 6001 N Kings Hwy. in Myrtle Beach. Inspectors recently gave the spot an 88, taking off points for food being stored at improper temperatures. The report also said a container of flour stored under the plumbing of the hand sink was not covered.
Additionally, a five-gallon bucket of sauce sitting on floor beside the prep table container was not covered, wiping cloths used in the kitchen was not stored in a sanitizer bucket, and floors in the kitchen were pitted and had chipping and peeling paint on them, according to the report.
If you're headed to the Springmaid Pier in Myrtle Beach, you'll find two restaurants near the DoubleTree resort, located at 3200 S. Ocean Blvd in Myrtle Beach. Southern Tide Bar and Grill is linked to the Springmaid Pier and is known as a low-key waterfront spot with burgers, fried fish and frozen cocktails.
Ocean Blue is inside the resort, offering more upscale items ranging from steak to seafood and roasted beats. State inspectors gave each spot a perfect 100.
Remember, each spot should have their letter grade posted. If you don't see it, just ask.
