Blueberry’s Grill has personality. Bright and welcoming, with a waitstaff eager to rhapsodize about the goodness of the food, it is a best bet for Myrtle Beach breakfast, served all day (until 3pm closing).
There’s a full coffee-shop menu of eggs and pancakes and French toast, including a large population of dishes with a distinct southern accent. Among the best of these is a special of blackened scallops atop an earthy mound of cheese-laced stoneground grits that have been barely drizzled with something sweet (marmalade?). Also on the effulgent plate are discs of fried green tomato, a few thick strips of bacon, a poached egg, and a sprinkle of green onion bits. Glory be, what a meal!
Equally resplendent is cinnamon roll French toast, a regular menu item. The toast itself is egg-rich, custard-soft, and unconscionably sweet. Piled atop it are fistfuls of blueberries, strawberries, and little bite-size bits of fig. Plus whipped cream and powdered sugar. Syrup comes in a pitcher alongside, but with a dish this bright and balanced, it might tilt the balance towards saccharinity.
Corned beef hash, served in a neat mound with griddle-crisped edges, is deliciously unctuous, just slightly briny — a great balance of beef, onions, potatoes, and the ineffable taste of a well-seasoned iron flattop.
Blueberry’s has a second location in Myrtle Beach at 4856 Highway 17 South (843-945-4588).
