The Surfside community of Horry County is home to many students and staff of St. James. This area is among one of highest ranked when it comes its local business district; these small shops, stores, and restaurants uphold Surfside’s economy.



As of Oct. 30, Nibils the popular local restaurant/café that resides on the Surfside pier closed and moved to Myrtle Beach. To locals, this could change a lot. Earlier last week, city council received word of this and proceeded to auction off the space.

Owner Jack Cahill released statements late Wednesday that his restaurant was relocating to Myrtle Beach and will now be located at the former Pizza Hut on Kings Highway.

Many people know Nibils for its excellent food, appropriate prices, and wonderful service. People have said that they will follow Nibils when it moves. Surfside residents say that Nibils has been their restaurant of choice for twenty years; they can’t have breakfast any where else.

The moving could be seen as a symbol of the economic struggles today. Nibils has been even more than just the ocean front nook that it obviously is; it brought attention to the Surfside pier itself. It is being speculated whether or not the pier itself will lose business. The iconic eatery will be relocated, but not ruined.

  2. I had never received a chance to dine at Nibil's, but it's sad to see that it was moved. The relocation of restaurants could really affect the economy. Great post Jake, I enjoyed this article.
