    Sample Culinary Favorites At The Marina Inn at Grande Dunes

    Three top chefs join together this fall and combine their favorite culinary secrets for Marina Inn at Grande Dunes’ annual event created for food loving travelers. The resort’s Grande Gourmet Weekend is a three-day event scheduled for Mid October that will blend the latest food trends from historic New England with contemporary Southern fare. Signature receptions, cooking demonstrations and catered feasts will feature menus that fuse local dishes from both regions, with specialty items such as beer braised pork from South Carolina’s Caw Caw Creek, “deconstructed” seafood stew with Maine lobster and homegrown desserts from both the North and South.

    “We take great pride in our local cuisine here at Marina Inn, with fresh seafood hand-picked from the pier and produce from the area’s best farmers,” said James Clark, executive chef of WaterScapes, the resort’s signature restaurant. “I’m thrilled at the opportunity to combine those flavors with my colleagues’ favorite dishes, and expect it to result in some unparalleled treats for our guests.”

    This is just one of the great events held for guests at the Marina Inn at Grande Dunes, which brings a new dimension of luxury and service to Myrtle Beach. Located on Highway 17 Bypass in the prestigious north end of Myrtle Beach, Marina Inn at Grande Dunes offers the best of the Grand Strand. There's easy access to all area attractions, breathtaking views of the Intracoastal Waterway, and grande accommodations where couples and families can retreat to their own private escape.

    This 186-room European-styled luxury hotel offers five different types of accommodations including elegant guest rooms, 2- and 3- bedroom suites, spacious villas and a host of amenities. The property has four restaurants including the signature culinary venue Waterscapes, a marina, and a conference center as well as access to the Grande Dunes Resort Golf Course and Grande Dunes Tennis Center.
