The last two times my wife and I have eaten at this restaurant they have been out of items that were on the menu. On two occasions my wife has ordered English muffins, and they were out both times. The second time she also ordered raisin toast and was told they were out of that, too. If they can't keep items in stock then those items should not be on the menu. The breakfast buffet is mediocre at best. Many of the "healthy" items on the buffet were empty and were not refilled while we were there. The place could be kept a little cleaner, too.

A terrific southern restaurant. Eat there ever time we come to Myrtle Beach. Northern racist have to try and shut down everything that does not agree with their slanted very of real life. And now, with our fearless leader, they feel more bolder. Just stay out of the south.

My husband and I vacation in MB several times a year. We would not feel like our trip was complete, without having breakfast at Tar Baby's! The staff is very friendly and accomadating. The buffet is always fresh and hot, with many delicious options to choose from. And the atmosphere is casual, laid back, warm, and friendly. Our waitress/hostess made us feel like part of their family. "Ya'll come back and see us, sweetie!" Don't get hung up on the reviews that try to make a big political thing over the name! Lighten up a bit! You won't regret a trip to Tar Baby's!

Great Southern-Soul cooking. Love the Uncle Remus tie in, the old original African-American classic folk stories are really done justice both in the establishment and food. Perhaps if other's were not so quick to judge what they see on the surface, then the culture that is deeper still could be shared in such a fine establishment. In any case, best breakfast in NMB!

Everything was good except the name. It is all that I thought about while eating there and every time I think of S.C., I dread the name and sign above that place. I wish that it didn't exist. I played golf with racists. I went to bars with racists. I ate with racists. They saw nothing wrong with the name either. I was there in 1993 - Amazing to me that the place still exists but then, S.C. is an "amazing" place.

My daughter's family and I ate breakfast at Tar Baby's just last week. I always like to try out local restaurants when we are on vacation. The buffet was scrumptious, one containing hot foods, the other contained fresh fruits. It was all you can eat, the price was very reasonable. Everyone there was very friendly and service was prompt. We are looking forward to eating there again the next time we are in Cherry Grove.

After reading the reviews of this breakfast buffet restaurant I was a little leery to go......but I am SO GLAD I DID! Not sure if the staff or mgmt. was different in the past, but we we're greeted by a sweet lady named Debbie and seated right away! The atmosphere is genuienly friendly!!! Going at 11 a.m. the items on the buffet were still being served hot & fresh. 2 people in our party got the buffet and went back as many times as they could! The biscuits & gravy are some of the best we've had! We will def be going back! WE LOVE TARBABY'S!!!

You people don't know what your talking about.......Has nobody ever heard the saying that "It is better to let someone think you're stupid than to open your mouth and remove all doubt"?

Lord have mercey.. Might as well as to called the place the N word because of the responses to the name.. It's just a name people get over it.. I swear.. To the people that have a problem with the name of the place you must be the one's who are racist for even making it an issue.. Like I said, Build a bridge and get the freak over yourselfs, or stay up north if you don't like our way of life.. Thank you and have a nice day..

The food here is absolutely terrible! It is hard to screw up breakfast yet they did. I had the buffet and it was so bad. Dried burnt waffles, pancakes and french toast. Watery eggs and tasteless drippy bacon. The milk for cereal was on ice in the buffet but didn't have the top on so it smelled rotten. I didn't find much that was edible. We thought maybe it was just a buffet problem but my husband ordered off the menu and his was just as bad. My 3 year old would not even eat his pancakes (which are usually his favorite).

The service was good and the people were friendly. I felt bad for them because I'd bet they'd make a whole lot more money if the food was decent. The only people who would eat here are people like us who were there on vacation and didn't read reviews first!

NOT impressed. Waitress was friendly and fast, but the guy who seated us seemd to not own a smile. If you go, which I do NOT recommend, avoid the pancakes. The worst I have had-- EVER! Even worse were the petrified sausage links. Even my kids said so. Way too expensive for the quality and atmosphere. Do not make this part of your beach experience. (Note: I am usually one to make positive remarks, but NOT in this case.)

I am sorry to say that I went to "Tar Baby's" once out of total curiousity because I really couldn't believe the name. I don't care about any story about the tar doll, blah, blah, or the dopes saying NC is the Tar Heel State. The restaurant is in SOUTH Carolina! Anyway, the food was as terrible as the name. The name is insulting. You can say - eat somewhere else, and I do but I have to drive by the offensive sign whenever I am in Cherry Grove. I am amazed that the people of North Myrtle Beach allow this sign to be up. It is 2010 people. I would think an establishment in a tourist state WOULD care about insulting people. I'm ashamed and sorry to say I even walked through the door but believe me, until the name is changed - I would never try it again.

We stayed less than a mile from Tar Baby's on our trip to the beach this year. I read all the reviews and decided to give it a try. What a waste of time! The food was sub par at best. The service was neglectful at best. The price was terrible. Oh, the best part was you got to keep the plastic 10 oz. cup that your drink came in. Make sure you order this tumbler with your meal or you will pay 1.15 for a refil. This place is bad. Don't waste your time or money.

We make it a point to visit TarBaby's whenever we are in NMB. They have the best southern breakfast buffet! I also love the looks people show when they see my TarBaby's T-Shirt, or coffee mug. Who Cares?! I Love their breakfast! Was a bit disappointed with their selection of fruits on their bar when we were there last month. Oh well, it's all about the biscuits & gravy, pancakes, and fried pork products - Yum! Be prepared to stand in line - outside.... They stay busy!

I have never eaten at this place, but I plan to in a few weeks when I go down to NMB. I cannot believe how very stupid people still are today in 2010, it amazes me to no end. North Carolina is the TAR HEEL state, they are THE NORTH CAROLINA TARHEELS!!!! GO HEELS!!! I didn't know the story of the tar baby until I read the reviews, but I would have NEVER thought that it was racist in anyway. Seriously, this is "like so highschool" already and like "the first one smelt it dealt it". It is just plain silly. I don't think that any WHITE person like me has any right to say if the African Americans should be offended by the TAR BABY, dumb, dumb!!! This is one of the reasons that we as Americans (white, black, brown, purple, gray, etc.) cannot seem to be AMERICANS anymore. It is a sad, sad day. However, it will be a great day when my family and I eat at the TAR BABY!!!! I will have a biscuit for the dumbasses of the world and say a little FU to them as I drink my glass of milk in the TAR HEEL STATE that has a place to eat called TAR BABY!!!! I am so there!!!

Im going to address this "racism" thing once and for all. YES you are right, it is a little racist. This restaurant was built during a time period when that kind of thing was normal and not looked down upon. However, it's more the story, Uncle Remus's Tales of the Old South, which by today's standards would be TOYALLY unacceptable. However, that was then, and this is now. Are we supposed to forget that part of our history? Tar Baby's welcomes folks of ALL color, and employees people of all color. The past is just that, the past. They took something that could have been negative and turned it into something positive and novelty.

The last time I ate at Tar Baby's, there was an African-American family reunion and they were eating breakfast at Tar Baby's. Evidently, they didn't have a problem with the name, so why should white people? Some people are bound and determined to find something to complain about.

Have been going to Tar Babys with my family for well over 10 yrs with my family every year we vacation in the area. The buffet is awesome. This is just an establishment that has been in business for many years and know how to run a restaurant. The breakfast bar even has fried fatback. Everything is hot and fresh and the service is great. Don't miss out on the experience. The name may offend some, but get over it and have a great breakfast.

If you can't get over the name, then you are living in the past, we stopped to eat there and it ROCKED, we stopped mainly for the name and to take a picture. If you did some research you would be shocked to hear the actual history behind it, non racist, its also a racist term, but if you haven't got to the point where racism is actually funny then you have no sense of humor. big deal, get over, you don't see white people get pissed when you call us crackers but we say sopmething and you get pissed? WTF!?!?!?! I digress, humorous name and picture, great service and food.

What a bunch of up-tight a..holes to find a name offensive. This is culture and tradition that can't be pushed aside. Racism was officially dead when the president was elected, but has re-emerged since his inaguration. You can't push everything away because someone wants to feel offended, when none is intended. Go eat at the restaurant, the food is great, the people are great. Be the all-inclusive people you like to think you are. Congratulations on having one of the best Myrtle Beach Breakfast spots a person can find.

First off, shut-up with the racist crap already. I just went and there were planty of African Americans both working and eating there. It's a complete non-issue for them and it is for me. Now, the breakfast bar was really nice. It did have a lot of food and good variety too. It was $8.95 for adults. The atmosphere was ok, a bit dated. But, the food was good, the place was clean, and it wasn't smoky like the Biscuit Shack is. my family and I will go back again. BTW, the wait staff was exceptionally friendly and provided great service to my family and I.

It does not look like much from the outside........but the food is excellent and the servers are friendly. You get wayyyyy more then your dollar value at this restaurant.

I've been going to MB for Bike Week for quite a few years....you don't have to go to The Tar Baby to find racism in mrytle beach...it's EVERYWHERE. My husband wanted to move there...I told him that he had to be kidding. I couldn't live with so many bigots surrounding me. People acutally still say "colored."

I meant, a tale from the famous *collections* of great African-American authors. The Tale of the Tar Baby was originally passed on orally by its author, and not captured in writing until 1881. Until then, most of white America did not know of this great original American parable.

The food was plentiful and well prepared. I'm not much of a breakfast person, but there's enough on the buffet to find something you like (pork chops for instance). The biscuits, pancakes and Belgian waffles were all good, and I was happy to see corned beef hash, cheese grits and red eye gravy available. There are other breakfast buffets in the Myrtle Beach area, but this one just has a lot more of a local character to it. Good food, fair price, and souvenir cups with the iced tea. What's not to like? Give it a chance before you make a judgment based solely on your own ignorance.

You people who have a problem with the name need to grow up and get a real life its know wonder our country is in such a mess. If u dont like the name then what are u going in for, I can promise u will not hurt their feelings or their business! they are good people not only that they have probably been there longer than some of u idiot gripers were even thought about..

As for the name, what difference does it make? I don't like my Uncle Luigi, would that stop me from eating at a restaurant called Luig's. Am allergic to Magnolia's, but I'd sill eat in the restaurant of that name. Get over it people. Go for the food

We go everytime we are down there and its open. And for all the dumb people out here here you go: "Tar-Baby was a doll made of tar and turpentine, used to entrap Br'er Rabbit in the second of the Uncle Remus stories. The more that Br'er Rabbit fought the Tar-Baby, the more entangled he became. In contemporary usage, "tar baby" refers to any "sticky situation" that is only aggravated by additional contact. The only way to solve such a situation is by separation.[1]" (this came from the wikipedia) Story In one tale, Br'er Fox and Br'er Bear construct a doll out of a lump of tar and dressed it with some clothes. When Br'er Rabbit comes along he addresses the tar "baby" amiably, but receives no response. Br'er Rabbit becomes offended by what he perceives as the Tar Baby's lack of manners, kicks it, and in doing so becomes stuck. Now that Br'er Rabbit is stuck, Br'er Fox ponders how to dispose of him. The helpless, but cunning, Br'er Rabbit pleads, "Please don't throw me in the briar patch," prompting Fox to do exactly that. As rabbits are at home in thickets, the resourceful Br'er Rabbit escapes. Using the phrases "please don't throw me in the briar patch" and "tar baby" to refer to the idea of "a problem that gets worse the more one struggles against it" became part of the wider culture of the United States in the mid-20th century. The story was originally published in Harper's Weekly by Robert Roosevelt; years later Joel Chandler Harris wrote of the tar baby in his Uncle Remus stories. A similar tale from African folklore in Ghana has the trickster Anansi in the role of Br'er Rabbit.(this also came from wikipedia) Really People look something up and learn from it don't get jump to think of the bad. There may be more to it then what you think you see. Tar Baby came form a book that was Folklore

My wife and I have been visiting Cherry Grove SC for many years. We only recently visited the restaurant. We have always found the name to be offensive and is probably maintained in an effort to deter african americans from dining. I noticed some of your respondents indicate you have diverse staff working there. This is little comfort since plantation houses also had plenty of blacks cooking, cleaning and serving food. There is no way I would take my grandchildren there to eat. Though the food is good, the concept is degrading to me, my family and many others in our society. This is 2009 and a time for the old thought processes to change. South Carolina has long resisted racial equality and it manifests itself in establishments like yours.

My fiance first took me to Tar Babys last year and I loved it! He's been going there for breakfast since he was a kid. I would (and have) recommend this restaurant to anyone looking for a good Southern breakfast. I noticed that some people didn't like the name, but it doesn't bother me. It comes from an African-American folktale featuring characters like Brer Rabbit and Brer Bear. There is a mural in the restaurant showing a scene from Disney's "Song of the South," which tells the story of how Brer Fox tricked Brer Rabbit with a baby made of tar. Don't let the name keep you from enjoying this great Myrtle Beach attraction.

Was introduced to this restaurant about three years ago by my younger brother. After living in this state for my entire thirty-something years this was the first time I had been any further north than batb. Anyway to make a long story a little less long, my brother kept telling me "we gotta go to Tar Baby's". Growing up in sc I was very familiar with the stories uncle remus so I never associated the name with any thing racist or non-p.c. ( I think that things like that are in the eye and mind of the beholder). I am however, a bit of a food snob so I was thinking that there was no way this place could live up to the hype that he had given it. Boy was I wrong. The food was excellent, as was the staff and atmosphere. I also walked away with a very special family memory, which for me is more important than anything. I will come back to this very special place everytime I visit nmb/cherry grove, which incidentally will be the first two weeks in july this year. Because as my little nephew so excitedly pointed out on my last visit "pamcakes! I looove pamcakes!" , and ain't that just right. See you at breakfast. Thanks bro.

This is the most racist thing I have seen in a long time and my father was a Grand Wizard in the Ku Klux Klan. Congradulations! I know you would never change the name but hopefully your daughter marries a African-American and you would have a Tar Baby as a grand-child.

Amazing resturant, easily my favorite breakfast restaurant in the south. The food is absolutely amazing, and being a buffet, is a great price. The only negative: it's usually very stuffy in the restaurant, but other than that, just perfect. You get in, have a great meal for the price, and get out. It's as simple as that. My favorite are the biscuits and sausage gravy, the porkchops, and the endless isles of bacons, eggs, and other breakfast favorites. They even provide souviner cups for the road. Over all, a 5* restaurant. And people griping about the name should just bypass it and not worry to rate it.

I can't believe that people in this country still use racial epithets and stereotypes, and think it's okay. Then THEY have the audacity to say things like "get over it" and "don't eat here". That's easy to say when it's not their image and likeness that's being charaterized in such a negative light. And can anyone tell me what "Tar Baby" has to do with a restaurant anyway? This is exactly why AMERICA and its citizens will never grow to its full potential as humans. Although it's a shame, it's also a true testiment about what America really is about. If there was a restaurant called "Honkey" or "Cracker" with an exagerrated epithet of a white person it would've be frowned upon, and rightfully so. Wake up people! Don't you know that this type of thing makes all AMERICANS look like immature, ignorant asses.
