Pier 14 is located directly on the water with great views in Myrtle Beach!  Their food has always been excellent to many owners who recommended them.



A pier of one sort or another has been a part of this oceanfront location since 1926. The current pier originally opened as a night club and a late night dinner venue in 1984. However, Pier 14 under that concept did not take off as expected. Upon the arrival of Bryan Devereux (current owner) in 1986, our focus changed to a concept of food and beverage.

In 1984, when Pier 14 was rebuilt, it was approved by the Corps of Engineers and given a 25 year life span. In September of 1989 Hurrican Hugo did its best to shorten that life span, however Pier 14 refused to buckle. Some of the damages sustained included the loss of the front ramp leading to the restaurant and the complete loss of the actual pier that extended more than 90 feet beyond the restaurant over the ocean. The restaurant portion remained intact. In fact, it was one of the only piers to survive Hugo’s force. Pier 14 was closed for 5 months due to Hugo.

Rioz Brazillial Steakhouse– 2920 Hollywood Dr. MB, 1315 HWY 17 North, NMB

NOT your typical steakhouse

In addition to good food, this is a really fun experience! The “salad bar” is not your typical salad bar – it has so many different kinds of items that I would go back just to enjoy it.  The Gauchos are so attentive and so much fun – and while the many different kinds of meat are delicious, the fried pineapple and fried plantain are to die for!
