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,  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!

The Delicious Details

Our Executive Chef

Meet Chef Michael McKinnon

Chef McKinnon, a native of Myrtle Beach, began working in restaurant kitchens at the age of twelve, helping out in his father’s restaurant, the Kings 17. He landed his first Executive Chef position in 1988 with the Sea Island Inn, acquiring a lot of hands-on experience, and eventually earning a degree in Culinary Arts from Horry Georgetown Tech.

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.
