Restaurant chain owned by Dale Earnhardt Jr. will soon have grand opening in North Myrtle Beach

NORTH MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) - North Myrtle Beach residents will soon be able to enjoy wings and live music at the grand opening of Whisky River.

Former NASCAR driver Dale Earnhardt Jr. owns the restaurant chain, which is well known for its feel-good atmosphere.

This will be the growing chain's fourth location after having success in Charlotte and two international airports.

Assistant manager Candace Powers said the restaurant will have something that both kids and adults alike will enjoy.

"Last Wednesday was our soft open; we've been doing pretty great," Powers said. "We have a mechanical bull. It's functional for kids and adults, nighttime and daytime. We have it on low speed on daytime."

Whisky River is located on U.S. 17 South. WMBF was told that Dale Jr. himself will be at the grand opening. That date has not yet been announced.
