MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. -- As we head into the winter months, the Grand Strand still enjoys good golf weather. And oysters, a perennial favorite, remain in season.

Myrtle Beach and the surrounding area is home to an abundance of local oyster beds, but where should you go for everyone's favorite mollusk?

We have recommendations for those of you in search of the top raw bars in Myrtle Beach.

Rockefellers in North Myrtle Beach

A local favorite in North Myrtle Beach, Rockefellers isn't much to see from the outside, but the food is excellent. If you wants oysters for 45 cents during Happy Hour, try Rockefellers. For more information, visit www.rockefellersrawbar.com.

Shucker's Raw Bar

With two Myrtle Beach locations -- one at Broadway at the Beach, the other downtown -- Shucker's is the area's most visible raw bar. The atmosphere is outstanding, and so is the food. For more information, visit www.theoriginalshuckersrawbar.com.

Bimini's Oyster Bar and Seafood Cafe

Open since 1985, Bimini's Oyster Bar and Seafood Cafe brings a taste of the islands to the local raw bar scene. With the sounds of Jimmy Buffett, reggae and live beach music pumping through the bar, there are few more enjoyable places to eat oysters. For more information, visit www.biminisoysterbar.com/myrtle.

Flying Fish Public Market and Grill

At Barefoot Landing, the raw bar at Flying Fish Public Market and Grill ranks among the area's best. Flying Fish overlooks the Intracoastal Waterway, and the food tastes as good as the view looks. For more information, visit www.flyingfishmarket.com.

Divine Fish House

The raw bar at Divine's is an integral part of one of the best restaurants on the Marsh Walk in Murrells Inlet. It doesn't have the gritty feel of a traditional raw bar, but for quality, it's hard to beat. For more information, visit www.divinefishhouse.com.
