Where to Dine and Play (Bribing the Kids to Cooperate for Portraits)

Common questions people ask after their sunrise or sunset portrait sessions are "Where can we get something to eat?" or "Where can we take the kids for a treat?"

If you are having your sunrise or sunset portraits made at my 14th N. or Cherry Grove locations in the city of North Myrtle Beach here are some suggestions for nearby locally owned family friendly casual dining.
