Even though this is a chain I always enjoy my trips to California Dreaming because no matter which one I visit I find a consistency of great food and table service. This location was new to me and it didn't fail. I was greeted immediately at outside door because a hostess saw me using my walker and she was quick... More

Melt in your mouth prime rib with a side, a salad with a croissant, and drink included for 13.95. Service was professional and a very nice dinning room.

California Dreaming is a very lovely restaurant conveniently located in North Myrtle Beach. The decor is contemporary with recessed lighting, soft leather booths, and lots of dark wood. The menu offers fish and meat options, and a great selection of salads and sandwiches.The house salad that comes with dinner entrees was outstanding. It is served with a light, buttery croissant....

Hands down the best She Crab soup I ever had at Myrtle Beach. A well kept secret. We went for dinner once and it was very good. Went for lunch and just had a bowl of the She Crab soup and split a sandwich. Plenty food.

Average place for a meal without any surprises. Had a blackened chicken pasta, salad. Best surprise was a very fresh, out-of-the-oven croissant which I wish I had just ordered a half-dozen of those--nothing came close to that delectable bite! Otherwise ordinary expectations. Service was really friendly and quick to respond...

Popped in for lunch on way back from shopping with the wife. Excellent lunch with great service. Huge burgers and fries and wraps and the bowl of chili is excellent also. A meal in its self. Highly recommend
