The Island Vista Dining Experience

No matter what you choose, the portions are generous, the prices are reasonable, and the smiling service genuine.

The Cypress Room offers delicious breakfast and dinner options, served in our oceanfront dining room, on the outdoor veranda weather permitting, or to-go for in suite dining.  Our poolside Tiki Hut offers fresh hot and cold sandwiches, fish tacos, salads and other lighter fare along with your favorite beverages, and Vista Pizza offers hot and fresh in-room delivery or take-out from the restaurant (we make it here!).

The Lounge has a tasty selection of lighter and heavier choices and, as always, a great selection of beer, wine and craft cocktails. Check out our Happy Hour!

Due to staffing shortages, The Cypress Room is currently offering limited Dinner and Lounge menus featuring fewer options. Menu options may change based on availability. Please be assured that full attention from our executive chef makes each option a delicious choice.  Due to staffing levels, we are also operating on a shortened schedule. Please refer to the Dining Hours of Operation for details.

He went on to win numerous awards at the Taste of the Tidelands before proceeding to work in some of Myrtle Beach’s finest restaurants, like The Grande Dunes Ocean Club and the Carriage House Club. He is a very tenacious and energetic chef whose style is French-inspired New American Cuisine with a devotion to using the best fresh ingredients, and implementing a simplistic, stylish technique with dynamic presentations. His goal in returning to his roots at The Cypress Room is to provide memorable dining experiences through passionately created culinary dishes.
