If you prefer beef, you have to try one of their steaks, California Dreaming uses only top USDA Choice Midwestern beef aged a minimum of thirty days for flavor and prepared “Pittsburgh” style with a charred crusty exterior. Their most popular steak is the Filet Mignon; A robust juicy ten ounce center cut steak, cooked to absolute perfection or try the Marinated sirloin; An eleven ounce sizzling sirloin steak marinated for forty eight hours in fruit juices, fresh garlic, soy sauce and spices, simply delicious.

Fall off the bone baby back Ribs are also very popular, they are so tender, they can be eaten with a fork, Danish full-flavored ribs; Grilled with a classic charred exterior & topped with their spicy honey-tinted barbecue sauce, you may choose one or two racks.

  1. My husband and I eat out very frequently, and many times in the N. Myrtle Beach area. Tonight we ate at California Dreaming in N. Myrtle Beach. We have eaten at many California Dreamings before, and have liked the experience, but tonight I have to tell you was the best experience we have had at CD. The food and drinks were great (great Dirty Martini),but our waiter was the best we have had in a long time. He was a tall man named Duke. I hope he will be complimented or compensated. He prob. don’t remember us, we had Dirty Martini, Frozen Strawberry Colata, CD salad, and Hot Veg. Salad, and it was good, but he was great. Please let him know and consider him an asset to your restaurant. Thanks, Dee L.

  2. Thanks for your comments, Dee! Great to hear you had such a positive experience at California Dreaming. Good food is hard to find, but exceptional service is a rarity and always makes a big difference to the dining experience, if you ask me. Are there any other restaurants in Myrtle Beach that you’d recommend based on food AND service?

  3. I would consider myself a regular at California Dreaming. My friends and I love it. We go there for lunch a lot and get their soup and salad deal–The baked potato soup is amazing and their house salads are of pretty big size and a MUST is the house dressing which is a honey mustard and hot bacon mixture.

    For dinner i’d recommend the steak and shrimp combination or the filet mignon. All the seafood, steaks and ribs come with a side item and that wonderful house salad. Great portions for the price. Atmosphere/Lighting can be a little dark at times but it makes it more intimate and romantic if you are dining with your boyfriend or husband. Service has always been great, and managers always make sure to stop by the table to make sure everything came out perfect.

  4. Thanks so much for you comments, Cathy!! We have had several folks contact us about their positive experience at California Dreaming…it is great to hear such wonderful feedback. With being a regular…it just goes to show that time after time their service and quality of food is exceptional. Thanks again for your comments and please feel free to comment on any other restaurants in Myrtle Beach that you would recommend to others coming to Myrtle Beach!

  5. I have not comment on your N. Myrtle Beach restaurant since I have not visited it but I love the one here in Columbia. I have contacting you since I am with an Army group, the 328th C/R ASA Company, that existed from 1952-56 in Bad Aibling, Germany. We are organized and have an annual reunion which this year is being held at N. Myrtle Beach. The Ocean Creek Resort will be where we are staying and it will be held from Oct 5-7. We will have around 50 couples thereand was wondering if your restaurant offered any discount tickets which I might include in their gift bags that will be presented to each family. We held our 2004 reunion at Charleston and I did not realize that the restaurant there was so close to the Holiday Inn we stayed at. Some from our group did visit the restaurant there and I got some very favorable comments concerning the food and service. We are going to the Horst Haus one night for a German night out which we try to have at our annual reunions and are having our annual reunion banquet on the night of the Oct 7. Since some our members will be arriving early, I feel sure some would want to visit your restaurant before we get started or enjoy your lunch if it is offered. Thanks Bob
