Myrtle Beach Pancake Houses

When one thinks of Myrtle Beach, some of the first activities that come to mind are beaches and golf.  Another is the tradition of eating at one of the plethora of Pancake Houses found from North Myrtle Beach to Murrells Inlet.   One can find over thirty different local establishments and with their multiple locations that number triples. pancake2
